The Forum at Tucson was a very comprehensive place. They have sections for the different needs, from the nursing level of care to assisted living. In the assisted living where we thought my sister could fit, they had anything from a studio apartment to a one-bedroom. The studios were moderate in size, but workable, and the one-bedrooms were fairly large. They have a nice dining room, a game room, a TV room, activities, and they bring in support dogs and entertainment. My sister is a wander risk and they don't take people like that. They had a well-known chef that helped design a lot of their menus. The staff was good. It's big, but it was nice and very clean, and the lobby looked like a fancy hotel. The guests all seemed pretty happy there.
We really liked The Forum at Tucson. It was a beautiful place, and everyone was very nice. It was too big for my mom, who wanted something small. The dining area looked great. They played games.
I had an aunt who lived at The Forum at Tucson and I also visited there last year. Her room was very nice. They showed me something else when I was considering something for my husband. They have various lectures, Bingo, movies, church, and synagogue services. I was taken around to see other facilities in the place. They have libraries, but a lot of the books didn't interest me. I only met with one woman and she was very pleasant, very knowledgeable, and not pushy. It's very well-maintained. It's one of the better facilities in Tucson.
I'm impressed with The Forum at Tucson. It seemed to be very nice. The food and the rooms were fine. They had all kinds of activities indoor and outdoor, tours, etc.; a little bit of everything. I was impressed with the staff I came in contact with. They had rooms for exercise,theater, and games. It seemed to be quite sufficient. I ate one meal there that was fine.
My father was in skilled nursing for five weeks and moved in to assisted living at The Forum at Tucson in August. They're very caring and they seem to have a good staff. The staff has been there long term, they're not a transient staff. Their food is pretty good. The facility is nice and it's big, they just have everything there in one place.
I wasn't all that interested in The Forum at Tucson because it's the furthest away from where my daughter lives. The rooms were about the same as the others, but they had too many Arizona football fans there. The staff was great and the facilities were good. They're all very friendly.
I looked at The Forum, they were just as good, but the rooms were really far from the cafeteria, and my mom would have to walk far. The activities were pretty good, they had game nights, exercise rooms, and they had a lot of exercises, which I liked. However, it was so big, and hard to get around.
I visited The Forum for the first time in a couple of years and I was sad to see how much had changed for the worse. What was once a lively, bright, inviting community was replaced with a community that I didn’t at all recognize. For one, during every one of my previous visits, I would always walk in on a facility full of residents talking and laughing and relaxing in the common areas – only this time, I saw just a few residents in the main areas – the silence was almost deafening compared to what I remember. Another difference – the entire time I was there, NOT ONE staff member approached me, greeted me or asked me if I needed help. This is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to senior living communities! Greeting visitors does several things – 1: It makes visitors feel welcome. It makes them feel more comfortable and it is the perfect opportunity to answer any questions visitors may have. 2: It keeps tabs of who is coming and going, for safety and security of the residents, staff members, and visitors. Many communities have a sign-in/sign-out sheet, but what does it matter if no one is there to make sure it gets filled out. 3: It helps make the residents and their family members feel more secure in knowing that the staff members approach people entering the community to make sure that they do not pose a threat to the residents or the residents’ property. It was the first time I have ever visited The Forum without being greeted upon entering the facility. Even worse than not being greeted, when I did finally find a staff member and approached them on my own to ask a question I was faced with rudeness and abrupt answers that really did not answer my questions at all. For the first time ever, I was very disappointed in my visit to The Forum and was relieved to get out of there, which is awful because it saddened and angered me to think that if I feel that disgusted and ready to leave after 45 minutes, then how do the residents feel having to live there. They need to get back to how it was before and I certainly hope they do.
This facility was OK years ago, but has gone WAY downhill... service is very poor, Management/Admin staff are rude, food, for the price of rent is cheap and poor quality, if in Independent Living, facility refuses to provide even basic care if injured or ill, thy will call 911 for you. facility is old and often being repaired or in breakdown mode. Bottom line... AVOID... many better places for less.
We took my sister to the rehab for gaining strength and realized she was very sick. Nurse did not help us get her to the hospital, made us wait until 4pm to get their medical person to review. Charge nurse, Dennis, was horrible.
