We think The Forum at Knightsbridge would work with us. We like the setup. The amenities are provided. They have a variety of options for the rooms and the apartments. There are various floor plans to choose from and very nice management in that they seem to be very sensitive to the tenant's needs. They just seemed to have a nice setup there. We were able to get something within our price reach, and the location is very good because it is very close to me and that is meaningful to my sister because she knows where she is, and she didn't want to be far from me. I took her to places. It just didn't sit well with her. This one is close to me, and I hope it works out for us. The person who took me around is very knowledgeable and informative. She knows about the various problems that aging brings and she's able to make recommendations.

Provider Response

This is wonderful to read Joan. We're glad the location works so well for you, and that the cost, amementies, and apartments are such a great fit for your family. We appreciate your kind words for the team members you met with, and hope to see you again soon. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions or thoughts.

My in-laws are living in The Forum at Knightsbridge independent living. I have a very positive review of them. I think that the staff is very attentive to the people. They bring in a lot of different activities and try to engage their residents. The administration office is very easy to work with and very accommodating to help with other needs that might not be your standard needs. It's very clean. When I was there, they were upgrading all the carpet again. Each floor is color-coordinated so the residents know which floor they are at. They have all different activities each day, they have a board with the activities that they have for the residents. They have two private cars to take residents to appointments or wherever they need to go. They have a van that takes them shopping or to different places each week. They have church services and a choir. They have happy hours and theme nights for holidays. They love the food. It's private dining so they have a choice of different things and my mother-in-law very much enjoys the food.

My dad moved into The Forum at Knightsbridge. It's close to home. It's lovely. They have excellent food and good activities. Most of all, they have very friendly residents that are very open to new people. It's excellent. So, he's benefiting from more activity, group exercises, and activities where the groups get together. Everyone seems to be having a nice time. They brought up food when we moved, and it's excellent. It's a good value because they give you two free months. I'm told that all the residents are immunized, as are the staff. The visitors are highly recommended to wear masks if they're immunized or not immunized.

My parents moved here from New York into independent living to be closer to us and we could not say more great things about the Forum. The people are beyond outstanding, the building and ground well cared for, the apartments are comfortable, the food great and the programing has a little something for everyone. Their response to the pandemic was first rate and showed just how much they care for everyone living there. If you are looking for a wonderful facility for yourself or for your parents, full of light, both literal and figuratively you won't regret the Forum!

My mother-in-law was there after a trip to the hospital for rehabilitation. Never have I nor my family been treated with more disrespect in our lives. My family member received a phone call one morning that the nurse found her on the floor when she checked on her. How does this happen when her bed had side rails I will never understand.We were told that she was refusing PT and not participating. They then kept pushing us to get her out of there since they could no longer get any money from Medicare. Jamie the social worker and Vivian the nurse manager actually yelled at us over the phone and would not even allow us to finish a sentence. Jamie actually lied about a conversation she had with my family member previously. Then Jamie told us if we did not have arrangements made by the time they were discharging her that we would have to pay a full month's rent to keep her there even if we were only going to keep her there a few extra days. They would reimburse us at some point for the money not used. We do not have that kind of money to have them hold it until they could pay us back.They told the home health nurse that she was a two person lift and incontinent. When she returned home she got up and walked with help to the bathroom. She have never once been incontinent since she returned home. We feel like they never even attempted any kind of treatment and they were just collecting a payment from Medicare. I would never recommend this facility for anyone.

My mother is now at The Forum at Knightsbridge. It has been fine so far. The people seem friendly and take care of my mom. My mother has a studio apartment, which is plenty large enough for the few things she has with her. She gets three square meals a day. Yesterday, they had a USO show, which was great. She has been playing a lot of jigsaw puzzles. So far, it has been working out. They have a small library. She does physical therapy, so she is keeping in shape. They are making sure she gets her dinner and that she goes for her meals. They have given her medicines daily, too. There is a doctor who sees her once a week. Everything is good.

My aunt lived in Independent Living at the Forum for several years. After a broken hip she wanted to return to the Forum and was put in the memory care area. Neither she nor the family were happy . We found in that area a lack of activities which she was accustomed to. We also walking through the hall could smell urine from another resident’s room which was very close to the receptionist ‘s desk and close to the area the nurse is as well as the aides. It was I who called their attention to the odor. The worst thing that happened was my sister-in-law requested a UTI test be taken for my aunt. Two days later I also requested that test to be taken.. 11 days after the requests my aunt was taken by ambulance to the hospital for pain. It was found she had a UTI infection which caused AFIB and a pocket of infection in her lung. The dr treating her at Riverside requested the results of UTI test we requested at the Forum. The nurse hadn’t called us back, my sister-in -law went there and the nurse said she would get results but then wasn’t in office when SIL went back. I then called and surprise.. no UTI test was taken as we asked for twice. My aunt was never able to fight back and died!

We were very happy with The Forum at Knightsbridge. It looked really good. We were very happy with the people who we met. They were very friendly and very professional. There seemed to be plenty of people there to take care of my mother.

I had a very nice experience at The Forum. I had lunch with some of the residents. I looked at the community, and it seemed very pleasant. The dining area was very lovely, the service was wonderful, and the food was good. The marketing person took me around, and at that point I just didn’t know. They did seem to have adequate space around the place. Right now they don’t have the 2-bedrooms available; they only have the expensive apartments.

My father was first put with a patient that we were later told never is roomed with anyone due to the severity of his condition. After a miserable and sleepless night he was moved but his confidence in the facility was rightfully shaken. The next night he waited for over an hour to have assistance to the toilet and was told that he'd just have to wait as the technician had 18 patients and pooping wasn't a priority. The stress was great on his fragile system and we went back to the hospital the next day. The nurses who had cared for him before Knightsbridge were shocked at the damage 48 hours had done. I would never suggest this place. It looks nice and the food is good. If you can care for yourself then it might be a good choice. But it us NOT a good choice for medical assistance of any kind. And the attitude that the nurses gave us when we decided to take him back to OSU was horrendous. You would think we were dipping directly into their pay! They told us to ignore his 'antics' and go home. I don't think needing help to breath or get to a toilet is antics. Those nurses need continuing education in compassion. They will grow old and require assisted too. I hope they get exactly what they've given.

Provider Response

As the Executive Director, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the time and effort that you extended to discuss your concerns with myself and our Healthcare Administrator. We have high expectations for care delivery and customer service. The health and welfare of our residents and peace of mind of our families are of the utmost importance to us. Your valuable insights will help us achieve our goals. Thank you so much for your consideration.

I am/was a resident of this facility

As a resident in Independent Living at The Forum at Knightsbridge for the last year and a half, I can heartily recommend it as the next best thing to home. The administration and staff bend over backwards to make sure each need and most wants are readily addressed: the apartments (many different floorplans) are spacious, the décor tasteful, the food delicious, and the activities varied enough to suit all interests – as all senior living should be. One of the qualities that makes The Forum unique is the omnipresent sense of hospitality and inclusion. New residents are quickly made to feel at home by other residents and are able to make their transition to communal living with ease. The administration encourages and appreciates the exchange of ideas from residents via a resident council with standing committees concerned with activities, food, and welcome, though the office door is always open to individuals at any time. It’s long been my suspicion that one of the requirements for employment at The Forum is an ability to be happy in one’s work – frowns are rare here, and efficiency with a smile is standard. I was privileged to see this in action several weeks ago when the frigid weather that’s plagued the entire country this winter brought some damage in the middle of the night to the public areas of The Forum: the entire maintenance staff was called back in after they’d made it to their own homes through some rather treacherous road conditions. These ten or so men returned to The Forum and worked quickly and professionally, even a bit enthusiastically, from can to can’t, emptying the lounge area, offices, exercise room, and library of furniture, stemming the flow from broken pipes and preparing for the first stages of repair. Most of them were here all night, as was our executive director, some still here at noon the next day. The weather hasn’t quit its onslaught, nor have the shovels and blowers for snow removal outside, making inside and out safe for the residents. I’ve run out of superlatives, except to say that I wouldn’t be surprised to hear a chorus or two of “Whistle While You Work” whenever the next project crops up. The Forum residents remain safe, warm, well-fed, and lucky to be here.

I have no personal relationship with the management or any of those employed by this institution. My professional experience, when I was employed, was in industry and in higher education where I held senior administrative positions. In that capacity, I witnessed good and poor administration and in that context, I wish to comment about the environment that both my wife, in Assisted Living because she has Alzheimer’s Disease, and I, in Independent Living, are experiencing. It is my view that senior administrators in any institution or organization are the environment creators for everyone in their organization. In my judgment, the Executive Director, Rebecca, NHA, is an outstanding administrator of The Forum at Knightsbridge. I’ve arrived at that conclusion after more than two years in residence at the Forum from among the following: 1. By her great sensitivity to the needs of all residents and her ready availability to address residents’ concerns 2. By her open-door policy with respect to all employees at The Forum regardless of position 3. Her willingness to share with her staff weekend time needs at the Forum 4. The lack of a hierarchical structure with a concomitant “pecking” order 5. Her receptivity to make changes in the facility based upon available financial resources from the corporate organization 6. Her support of programmatic changes that will enhance residents’ happiness 7. Her readiness to do anything herself, however mundane, if it will improve the immediate environment Those are attributes that one would hope to see in any senior administrator, but especially in senior housing where the recipients might not have the mobility to move from a less than optimal environment. The Forum at Knightsbridge is very fortunate to have such an outstanding Executive Director.

We knew of The Forum at Knightsbridge because we live in that area. That facility was excellent! I did not eat there but we were there during meals being served and it smelled great. What impressed me the most with this facility was the interaction of the staff with the residents. Overall, that would be the only one I visited that I would give the highest rating to. It would be the right place if the price was not an issue.

The Forum is my second choice. It is a little bit older place than the other facility that I had visited. The problem I have with this facility is that if I needed assisted living, I would have to move to another facility. Also, they did have transportation services but you have to pay for its services. It is not free. However, what I hate to give up with The Forum is that they have apartments with terraces that overlook nice scenery.

The Forum at Knightsbridge was a very nice facility and a little more expensive. The staff were very nice and very good. Everybody was very nice. There was no contention about how good this facility is, but it really went down to the cost. So we didn't feel like it was a right fit for my mother-in-law.

Forum at Knightsbridge has a dietitian that makes meals more for the needs of the residents. Unless you have a medical reason that you need a special meal.

Their rehab facility is clean. My sister has a semi-private room there now. She's getting some physical therapy and help her to get some balance. She has some issues with getting dizzy. The staff are friendly and nice.

My mother is a resident at The Forum at Knightsbridge and the facility has many wonderful employees who do a great job caring for my mother. In the past I have noted on many occasions about such care. However, when I express a legitimate complain or concern with certain members of the administration, I am sometimes met with unpleasant resistance. On May 12, 2013 I was informed there was an outbreak of scabies in the assisted living area of the facility. And, my mother, who is wheel chair bound was one of those who has scabies. How does this happen?
