I Visited This Facility

Forwood Manor was very nice, the staff seemed to be quite pleasant, but the people seemed to be standoffish, they weren't as friendly as some of the other places, and I didn't get a real warm-and-fuzzy feeling there. The facilities were nice, the rooms were a nice size, the layout was a little odd, and would take a while to get used to. We tried the food, it was very good, but it was very expensive.

Forwood Manor was nice and had everything other facilities have, but it was less money to get into.

We liked Forwood Manor the best. It looked really clean and everything was updated and new. It might not be a new facility, but everything was kept up well and we really liked that. Everybody seemed really friendly there. The woman who showed us around was very informative, nice, answered all our questions, and took us all over. They have a special chef who comes in. We were just really impressed. There were quite a few things like trips, a room where the residents can use computers, and listed activities for the day so they can plan what they want to do. I didn't taste the food, but it looked good.
