I visited this facility

Father will be moving to The Forum. My experience has been very good and has been an all around positive experience. The people have been very helpful and courteous. They had television time and had activities for the seniors, and my father is going into their Bridge unit. They have things to keep them stimulated, things to try and get them active. The move was a financial choice because where he was I just could not sustain anymore. The Forum has an excellent price, and they do have good services.

If I would move to a facility, the one that I would pick for myself was The Forum. I liked the dining facilities and the apartments. The staff was excellent. The dining room was beautiful. It had tablecloths, and I just liked everything about it.

The Forum is in the middle of downtown, but right on a major freeway. It's 20 stories tall. What is there is very nice and very pretty, but they're extremely small rooms. It's been there quite a few years. As far as assisted living, the amenities are not too great. The drawback is that I'm only 85, but I'm still active but I have to put my wife into assisted living, so I will have to go with her. There's absolutely nothing there for me to participate in.

My mother-in-law broke her hip and we had to move her to The Forum at Memorial Woods. They are really top of the line. The rooms are very, very clean. Everybody is always happy; we've never had a problem so far, and I hope it stays that way. I consider them a top-notch nursing home. Every day, every hour they have something going on. If it is not Bingo, they've got piano people coming in, or they have activities throughout the day constantly. That is a very good facility.

Mom will be moving to The Forum at Memorial Woods. We chose this because the area that it’s in is close to the family, and she likes the facility. So far, the staff that we have dealt with seems very nice. I ate there once and the food was fine. They have exercise, card games, and outings; they seem to have a lot of things every day.

Both of my parents were there in different capacities. I would not recommend this facility. For us, there was no communication between the various departments. If there is an organization plan it does not seem to be followed or known by residents or workers. I think that unless you possess forensic accounting skills, it is impossible to understand the billing. If you question the charges, their attitude changed from big smiles to big bureaucracy. The valet staff is the best part of this organization. They are kind, professional and always helpful. My father always complained about how bad the food was. He had no option but to pay for the meals but mostly prepared his own food because he just could not stomach the taste. If you are very rich and healthy you might find this a good place to live. We found the administration staff to be a well oiled sales machine.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback. Here at The Forum at Memorial Woods, providing the best quality care for our residents is our highest priority, so it is a serious concern for me when I read about a resident or family member who comes away with an experience as negative as the one you described. If you are willing to do so, I would like to speak to you in person or over the phone to address each one of your concerns in detail, and with the attention that it deserves.

The Forum in Memorial Woods is a more suitable place for me and I like it at the present time.

My family decided to put my aunt in assisted living because of her worsening Alzheimers disease. It had become very tough for us to help her in any quality way, so we researched different Houston-area facilities. The Forum (at Memorial Woods) is top notch in Alzheimers and dementia care.The building is decorated more like a hotel than the usual assisted living facility. Patients can enjoy an experience that is more luxurious and less sterile and hospital-like.The staff is incredibly efficient and knowledgable, and I am always impressed at how involved they get with their patients. My Aunt's nurse knows everything about my aunt - it was amazing! They form friendships while acting as professionals. They are a real comfort to patients (instead of being someone to dread).I also love how the nurses pay close attention to how my aunt (and others) are feeling. If they see a patient spending too much time alone, they draw them into activities they feel they might be interested in. My aunt's nurse decided she could use a Bingo Night, so she signed her up for it and got us (my aunt's family) to encourage her to play, as well. I love that I never felt like I was in a hospital. What a wonderful place.

This is a great living facility for the elderly! The facility had friendly staff that was available 24 hours of the day. The facility also has an emergency response system for every room. Security is excellent here. They have a personal security guard who is super friendly. They even offer a health education program at this facility! Would highly reccommend for any elders, as they do an excellent job taking care of elders!

We really enjoyed our visit at the Forum At Memorial Woods assisted living facility in Houston. It is a lovely community with a homey but sophisticated atmosphere.

The residents we saw all looked well cared for and content. They could also support varied levels of ambulation.

The entire facility was elegantly designed with luxurious furnishings - but still had comfortable vibe. The interior was nicely ordered with easy access throughout. The rooms all had gorgeous views with plenty of natural light and fresh air.

The back grounds featured abundant places for seniors to really enjoy the outdoors in a safe manner. The park-like space was peaceful and looked like a great place to host parties.

The dining rooms had comfortable and beautiful furnishings and decor. The residents eat healthy, nicely presented meals like one could find in a 5 star restaurant. The food we tried looked and smelled appetizing and was prepared healthily. The menus have a variety of interesting dishes, in addition to the usual American offerings. Snacks are also offered regularly and any time requested.

Private living spaces all had plenty of light and air and were luxuriously and tastefully decorated. The decor here was one of the nicest we've seen in the area. Each space had stunning views. Every space was designed with safety in mind.

The exercise center features regular yoga, aerobics and other exercise classes Staff is available to help use equipment and provide instruction as needed. Residents also enjoy safely navigating the lovely garden courtyards and pathways.

The events calendar was full of intriguing and stimulating activities that included outdoor nature walks, and the opportunity to enjoy everything that the vibrant city of Houston has to offer.

This is a very well designed and well-maintained facility where all of the residents looked very well taken care of. The staff was exceptionally kind and caring - which is probably why the seniors enjoy this living environment so well.
