A letter to future families of Forwood Manor,My brother and I are writing this so that anyone considering Forwood Manor Senior Living knows that they and, or their loves ones will not be disappointed. With that being said, we wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Executive Director, management and all the staff, along with the residents, as they made our parents feel at home since the day we walked in the door almost six years ago.Over the years, both of our parents transitioned multiple times from short-term rehab, to Independent Living, and then Assisted Living, all while never having to leave the community. With each move, they were properly cared for, treated with dignity and given the utmost respect - right up until their recent passing.From the beginning, we have been delighted with their experience, as Forwood has always considered our parents (and us as their children) part of the Forwood Family. We had, and continue to have, the ultimate confidence in how they have been handling the COVID-19 situation. We were always satisfied with their genuine compassion to do right by the residents, but to have full trust in this team was always the most comforting.Now, we hope you take comfort in the wonderful experience we had and know that that would be extended to your family as well.Sincerely,Mark and Ernie Purnell

This is a beautiful place to live. The grounds are lovely and well-maintained, the staff members are considerate and helpful, and the residents quickly become friends with each other.Individual apartments are large and comfortable, and residents enjoy decorating them with their own favorite furnishings. There are beautiful guest rooms as well, so that out-of-town visitors can be conveniently housed while they are here.The calendar is filled with activities for everyone, according to each persons interests. This is a great place to continue to grow in spirit and to enjoy Life!

Sales director was knowledgeable, informative and above all, very professional. Having someone that makes you feel welcome and comfortable, especially when it involves my mothers care and security, is a wonderful feeling. If you are looking into assisted living residences, you wont be disappointed with them.

I cant say enough good about Starlite, a program to provide non-medical assistance to Forwood Independent Living residents. The staff member who routinely supports my mother brightens-up the day in many ways. She has a smile and personality that is contagious and always goes the extra mile to ensure that needs are satisfied. The value that she adds has been especially welcome during the global pandemic when access to the facility by family is limited and the need for resident companionship and a friendly conversation is at a premium.

My grandmother was a resident there while she was still alive and always spoke so highly of Forwood Manor. Specifically she mentioned the friendliness of the staff, the delicious meals (soup in particular), cleanthiness of the facilities, and all of the wonderful daily activities that were planned to bring the Manor community together. I highly recommend Forward Manor to everyone searching for great accommodations for their aging family members.

After a diagnosis of COPD, my siblings and I had to move our father to a more assisted facility, although he was still able to move around on his own. He lived there for about a year and a half before passing, but he loved it. He continually raved about the staff, the meals and his new-found friends. We would highly recommend Forwood Manor that feels more like home than a facility.

I joined Forwood Manor on March 24th 2014 and I credit the Director for its success. Everyone calls him by his first name, Robert Greer. He. is Resident motivated.and his decisions are based upon what is best for the Residents.. I have seen this firsthand on many occasions.

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit several of my friends in Independent Living last week. Upon entering the dining room I spotted my friend Brad with a group of his friends in happy conversation and enjoying lunch. Their server could not have been more accommodating to the group. What great piece of mind knowing that Brad is in such a wonderful caring environment! Thank you!

This community is absolutely STUNNING!!! As a senior care professional I couldnt be more enamored with the employees who work there as well as the building itself. This definitely is a place to recommend to families looking for a place for their aging loved ones.

Our grandparents were there for four years and had a great experience. The facilities are well-maintained and the staff is responsive and caring. If you are looking for a place where you have peace of mind knowing your loved ones are well-cared for, we highly recommend Forwood Manor.
