I am a friend or relative of a resident

My dad is in a facility in Louisville near my sister called The Forum. It’s clean, it feels like a home, it has excellent care, and the staff is very helpful. They have a garden area, and they can watch the ducks. They have a separate group that has an office but it is separate from the phone call helping hands, so we use that group a lot of times to make sure he gets to different place because his Alzheimer is getting worse.

My sister has tried the food, and she has been very happy with the food. It’s in a really nice suburb area, and it’s kind of like a close gated community. There is a guard check when you come in, and then it sort of like a lot of woody grounds on paths that you can you on hiking.

The Forum is 2 blocks from where I live. The staff is very wonderful. The food is good. They provide transportation, 3 meals a day. They have coupons so if my parents don't eat there one night, we can go another night and eat with them free. They have the largest floor space of any facility in Louisville on their apartments. The apartments are very nice-sized so they don't feel cramped. My parents love it. They're very happy.

The rooms are extremely large. They're in an apartment but they also have villas. It's more like an apartment building than an institution. Their bathroom has safety bars and emergency cords. The activities are just wonderful. There is always something going on. The best features are the space, the rooms, the square footage of the apartments and the amenities. They have an indoor swimming pool. It's just very nice.

I visited this facility

The Forum at Brookside was recommended by Caring.com. I visited the place, since I was looking in the area for a facility for my mom. The staff were very nice to me. I liked the fact that there were independent homes and apartments. I saw both the rooms in the house and the apartments. The rooms were adequate, and definitely nice and clean. Although, I thought it needed to be updated. The dining room was very pretty; unfortunately, I was not able to sample the food. I thought a lot of the activities were centered around the meal times. The residents appeared content and happy. However, there was no progression in the event that her needs of care progressed. And that was one of the things I wanted available. Nonetheless, I really liked the independent apartment homes, and I would definitely recommend the facility to other people.

I visited this facility

The place is wonderful, as a matter of fact, it's everything I would ever want because of the way they do things and . The residents don't just sit in the wheelchair and I wouldn't want my mom just seated in the wheelchair. I like the way the staff treat the people that lived there. They have a section where they have people that can get around; an assisted living area, and then there is a section for dementia and Alzheimer's. The staff were more than helpful and more than caring. The staff that showed us around is very detail-oriented. They showed us around the facility and the activities they do on certain days a week. They have different room setups like a sewing room and for the men they have a tool room and a workshop room. We had breakfast there and the food was wonderful. The facility is clean. The whole place was just fresh, warm, and caring. They give one on one level of care. Depending on what your situation is they have specialist that worked with you on that particular group. The rooms have handicapped showers and handicapped bed. It's just so nice. The residents in the dementia unit were monitored. I felt comfortable with the staff.

This facility has all facets of care from Independent Living to 24 hour Nursing Care. My only complaint is the level of service and follow through in the Nursing facility. Well meaning people, however, not up to date on the needed care of our patient.
