I chose Wynwood at Forsgate because they would take my husband for ten days respite care, and the other places that were recommended would only take him for thirty days. I didn't want him to go for thirty days. It has been absolutely excellent. The place itself was lovely, the accommodations were more than adequate, the food was very good, the grounds were very well-kept, and the staff was extremely friendly and cooperative. I couldn't say anything bad about them because they were all very good. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Both my husband and I did visit Wynwood at Forsgate and the place was very nice. We were able to try their food and it was very good. They were celebrating the month of friends and they have entertainment so they have activities. The rooms were spacious and it's well laid out. Their dining room is large. I like the way the grounds are laid out. They have a vegetable garden that the residents help maintain.

I found a nice place, Wynwood actually. I had even paid for a room for my uncle, but he passed away. All of the facilities really seemed very nice. It was affordable, which was why I chose it, but the place itself was also very nice. The staff was excellent. I was impressed with the care and the things that they had planned for the people there. My uncle would have been in the dementia unit. They even put a little bar at the end of the floor, and that was going to be a place just for the men. It seemed like they took a lot of care in making it a comfortable and happy place for the residents. From what I could see, it was very well-run.

Wynwood at Forsgate was very nice. The staff was very friendly. The one room that we saw was very clean and spacious for one person. What impresses me when I visited this place was its cleanliness. The dining room was a very good size.

Wynwood seems to have a very attentive and caring staff. When we went to look at all the different places, they seemed to take the most time. My father has become very well adjusted and happy there. Their therapy program is excellent. He is now walking again. They seem to have a very good social scene. There seems to be plenty of activities. The staff is always there. Every time we go, there's the staff hanging around. They say hello; they ask how everybody is doing.

The place is clean. His apartment is lovely. The apartments look very nice in terms of the way the rooms are laid out, and the hallways are very nicely kept. There's living furniture and carpeting everywhere. He's in a private room.

We've eaten there several times. The food is quite good. It seems very healthy. We've had quinoa. There are always vegetables. The portions seem appropriately-sized, which is good because most of these people are not that active. My father seems to like most of the food. It seems to be very well run, and he seems happy.

Wynwood was very nice, very pleasant, and I had no problems walking around there. The rooms were fine. Everything there was lovely. If I could place my mother in there, I would. However, I can't give them a perfect score because I didn't see everything.

Wynwood at Forsgate's rooms are smaller than others but it's a little more personable. Everything is just very clean. Money-wise, it's a really good value.

Wynwood is in the area where my mother lives. The facility was lovely and beautiful and it looked like a hotel. The staff was friendly, courteous and professional. The bedrooms were private rooms with shared kitchen and bath. They had arts and crafts, exercise and music.

I didn't like Wynwood at Forsgate as much as the other facilities I've looked into. Although the facility is nice looking and very well kept, the rooms were small and the staff didn't seem that attentive to the people.

I was young when my grandfather first developed alzheimers and moved into the facility. The facility is located in a beautiful building with a nice outside area to sit and chat and do whatever. Going inside the building is warm and nice and all of the staff members seemed very friendly. My grandfather would often sit comfortably on one of the chairs in a large sitting area and would either sit to himself or try to engage with some of the other residents. There were always staff members standing by in case they were needed for any reason. I remember the food being decent and filling, if not bland and unexciting. The rooms are spacious and warm and the beds are comfortable. The courtyard was a big open space with a small pond and nice green shrubs and other plants, and was a very nice place to sit. Overall it seemed like a pleasant place to live and I would recommend it to others.

My mom was treated excellent at Wynwood. It was a beautiful community. There's a specific section for seniors with dementia. They were very assistive. She said she had a good time. The food was fabulous. It was like a hotel.

Everyone was very friendly. The location is very nice and peaceful, well kept, and clean. The facilities were not too sterile-looking, which is nice. The residents seemed to be engaged and entertained and happy. Online reviews of the facility are pretty much universally positive, which is very important since these are the most honest opinions you can find. We feel that this is one of the best facilities that we have visited so far. Most important to us, my grandmother seemed to like it as well, which is important since she is leaving her husband in the facility's care. Although we have not come to a conclusion yet, this does seem to be a definite possibility. It's in a very nice neighborhood as well. The gardens are beautiful and very peaceful. However we are also looking for a facility with more therapy options, although we do need something that we can afford as well.

Friend or relative of resident

One of my friend's relatives has resided in this living facility for over 9 months now. I was able to pay her a visit in March and I have only but praise about the grounds of the facility, amenities and the exceptional staff on duty. As I approached the grounds, I felt a very vibrant, vacation like atmosphere which brought a sense of tranquility and calm to the forefront. I feel that this was imperative as the daily grind and life outside the facility is very chaotic and not fit for those who require assisted living. The meals that I saw in the facility looked scrumptious and were portioned out, similar to a meal in a typical home. The residents looked to be eating steak and potatoes while playing cards, a very jolly and carefree atmosphere. Finally, the staff was very friendly and seemed to be on call at all times for assistance and also to engage in the activities of the residents. Overall, I highly recommend this facility.
