I am the daughter of an ex-resident. My Mom was there in Memory care for about three months untill I got her out of that place. Dogwood Forest as an assisted living is probably fine, looks nice, lots of activities. But for an Alzhiemers resident their "Inspirations Unit" was to small, to many residents, aweful food, aweful service. The Unit Director set the tone for the Unit by not being compassionate and raising her voice to residents and caregivers. They did not know how to deal with the AD resident that my Mothers was. They were use to having residents just sit around quietly all day in their wheelchairs. My mothers was not like that at all so when she made her needs known to them the director would call me to ask how to handle her. It was clear that the Director had no training with AD residents. During my Mom's time there , (3 months) we found medication lying around her room 4 times! Unbelieveable! I made the mistake of not acting on my gut feeling I had about the Inspirations Director. Please don't let this happen to you & your loved one.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Dogwood Forest has an exceptional staff that actually cares about their residents. I have been to other assisted living homes where the staff was simply just mean. But at Dogwood Forest they seemed to deeply care about, and for, the residents. The building itself seemed to be fairly new and was exceptionally clean. Everytime I visited my grandpa there seemed to be several people cleaning.
