I visited this facility

The staff that showed us around The Forum at Brookside were all nice. It's a beautiful place -- a lot bigger than most -- but it costs a lot more there too. The rooms were really spacious. We didn't like the dining room because you have to go outside to get there. I think they need to have it where you don't have to go outside to get to it.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to write a review about The Forum at Brookside. Our goal is to provide exceptional care and quality of life for those we serve and I am happy to hear that our staff made a positive impression on you! The Forum at Brookside is Kentucky’s largest full-service senior living community and offers spacious apartments and villa garden homes for independent living, comfortable accommodations for those requiring personal care services, as well as a fully accredited health center for skilled nursing care and rehabilitation. Residents who live in the villas, do have to go outside to get to the dining room, however we do provide door to door transportation as well as complimentary room service if they choose not to go to the dining room. Residents who live in the apartments do not have to go outside to get to the dining room and also have the option to receive room service. I would love to spend time with you and go over all of the accommodations that we have to offer, please reach out to me directly. Thank you for your consideration,

Bill Hulsey, Executive Director The Forum at Brookside
