I am/was a resident of this facility

I moved into Forest Creek Commons on the 1st of October. The staff is OK. I have a two-bedroom with garage, but it's a bit old. The food is great, and I like the people.

I went to Forest Creek Commons for a visit, and it's an OK facility. Their rooms are a little smaller. The staff was very nice during my visit. They have smaller recreation areas where people could gather around and play.

Forest Creek was very clean, and the people were very helpful and answered my questions. The room that I visited was very nice. They have bingo and Wii bowling, and they keep them active. They are talking to me very openly.

Forest Creek was really nice, but it was smaller and cost a lot more money. The people were very nice too and answered all my questions, but the facility was a lot further away.

We did like Forest Creek Common. It is a little older facility, but it seemed to be well taken care of. The dining area has a very large dining space. They made a big deal about showing the menu and introducing us to the chef that was there. They consider the food to be restaurant quality though I wasn't able to try it. It would be my third choice just because it is older. The sanitation is above average, but it didn't appear to be clean as the other facilities, and that may just be because it is old. We got there later in the evening, and the staff is very accommodating. The person that does the tour normally doesn't do it that late, but she was willing to stay with us. She spent lots of time with us. They made a point to introducing us to their kitchen staff, and they seem to be very pleasant.

Forest Creek Commons has it all! I went to several other facilities with my family members before we made a decision on where grandpa's new apartment would be. The facility is gorgeous! The designated areas where family/visitors spend time with their loved ones have a very nice feeling of "home". There is a restaurant/ dining area with a menu that changes daily where you can eat with your family and there is even a theatre with two daily movie options where family is also welcome these were features we, as a family really enjoyed.As far as my grandfather goes, he really enjoys his new apartment. He also enjoys his nurses. They are funny and genuinely have a passion for what they do. The rest of the staff is exemplary as well, they stay up-to-date with who's who and what's what. Forest Commons has been very accommodating for my grandfather's needs.

On first arrival of the place it looked really nice and the upkeep of the grounds was very pleasant. The rooms that I visited, though not large, had a spaciousness and felt as if they were actual homes and not just hospital rooms. It was very tight knitted community with activities posted and encouraged of all residents to participate. The staff that I came in contact with were friendly and generally interested in all aspects of the daily life of their residents. I appreciated the fact that everyone was so friendly and though there was a community atmosphere there was sufficient down time for personal activities or times to just relax in your home by yourself. The d̩cor inside the homes are variant and able to be customized to an extent as most rental properties are. I mentioned the grounds were kept clean and fresh that changed with the seasons, and the buildings themselves were generally kept up as well.

Forest Creek Commons seem like a very nice place, very open, and it has therapy room. It has a restaurant, you can order what you want off the menu. It has transportation to doctors. There's a nurse on-call and assisted living aides.

Forest Commons Assisted Living Community was a very well designed and comfortable facility. The 'independent' homes were close enough to walk to the dining hall, but far enough away to be private. The rooms and apartments in the facility were also very comfortable. They had all the requirements for care and safety, yet were very warm and comfortable. The main facility was also very nice. There were various common areas were you could meet with family, play games with friends, or just relax and watch TV and not feel alone or isolated in your own room. There was a full time social coordinator. The activities that were planned really exhibited the coordinator dedication to the job. The area I really know the most about was the dining hall. The dining hall was extremely nice. It was run by a full time chef, educated in both culinary and dietic skills. Each meal was offered a healthy selection. Both lunch and dinner included some kind dessert. I was extremely impressed the facilities willingness and ability to accommodate my aunts special dietary needs. She was a vegetarian and she was having memory problems. The facility fixed special proteins for her that we provided, and they helped her remember to add special items to her food, such as nutritional yeast. This really endeared the place to me, as it is impossible to always be there. I ate many meals with her and participated in several of the organized activities and I always felt that the residence were treated with the respect they deserved and that they were really enjoyed and valued as people by the staff. There was always the person there that was to the point were they need more care than what the assisted living facility could care for. I noticed when this happened the families were always approached in a professional manner and that the facility worked with the family to make appropriate arrangements.
