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.
