The Forum at Overland Park – Reviews
Our loved one is new to The Forum. She has only been there for 3 months, but those 3 months have been great. The care has been absolutely top notch and we cannot say enough about the support we have gotten from Jennifer, the Executive Director. PS: The food is delicious.
I rate independent living at the Forum a five star because it is a great place for my wife and me to live out the rest of our lives. Why, because of the daily social contact with other nice people at dinner time and in the many daily programs for your use or not, as you choose. The Forum is older but it has many amenities and it is the right size having only 117 units, and it is a rental only project. The food operation is very good, not fancy just good food prepared as you like it and with a good variety. Last night, I ordered the catch of the day, grilled salmon with a wonderful creamed sauce. You cant get a better tasting salmon anywhere in town. Also, very important is the staff. The general manager, maintenance and program director all do a wonderful job of serving our needs in a timely and pleasant manner. Therefore, we enjoy may happy and enjoyable days here. Im 89 now and have been here five years. I feel like I will stay another five or more years because there are so many here still active in their mid-nineties. That encourages my wife and me that we can do that also. Being here has been an important part of our recent life. We are here to live every day, not just waiting to die. If you are over 80, I encourage you to be at The Forum.
I can not think of a more noble endeavor than to care for someones love one. To do so in the era of Covid by placing yourself in harms way is truly doing Gods work. The Forum is an exceptional organization with an amazing staff.The entire team at all levels was responsive, transparent and most importantly compassionate. From the beginning the skilled nursing team worked diligently to get my Mom home.My Mom going to the Forum was a blessing. Words can never convey our gratitude for all that the Forum did for our family.
My rehabilitation stay at the Forum was amazing! The nursing staff was professional and attentive Simon, Johnna,Nikki, Nancy, Shelby and so many more were very caring. The P.T. staff was awesome as well as the dining staff, activity staff and Meghan in Social Services to name a few. You will love the care the Forum provides!
I cant begin to say enough about what a special place The Forum is. Even before my mom moved into her apartment last fall, the staff went out of their way to make her move seamless. Sandy was always available to answer the myriad of questions we had. It was truly a joy working with her. The entire staff is always very friendly and kind. Their caring for the residents really makes it feel like a family. My mom has enjoyed getting to know her many new neighbors. There are numerous special events and activities offered on a regular basis.This spring when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, The Forum did, and continues to do, an amazing job of keeping everyone safe, healthy and happy. It has been such a comfort to our family to know that Mom is in a place she truly loves and with such wonderful, caring people.Thanks so much to everyone who makes The Forum such a special place!
Moving to the Forum, we are extremely pleased with our decision. Employees are capable and seem eager to help us. Varied activities are abundant and dining is quite pleasant. We have yet to meet a troublesome occupant and we see opportunity to develop strong, durable friendships. Also, a medium size shopping mall across the street gives us additional flexibility. This is not to say everything is perfect. However, senior supervisors seem to listen, adapt and supervise for quality living. Thus we feel confident we have made the right decision in being here as we look forward to our remaining period of retirement at the right time and the right place.
The Forum at Overland Park is simply the BEST. If you are reading this and wondering whether or not a senior living community is right for your beloved parents, I can say unequivocally, at least for mine... YES. My parents were in Independent Living and LOVED it here. Like everyone, you want what is best for your parents and its difficult navigating all the possibilities. This is a wonderful community, full of fun-loving, engaging, kind people (both staff and residents) and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I often laughed at needing to practically make an appointment to see my parents, they were so busy with activities, dinners with new friends, field trips to all the fun places in KC, etc. The staff cares about everyone and it is evident every day that this is more than just a job to them, as they all wear many hats and often drop what theyre doing to take care of someone in need. The chef takes much pride in his delicious offerings, and the dining room feels like home. The selection and quality are all-inclusive resort-worthy and again, the staff is professional and friendly. The special events and celebrations are as fabulous as anything you would see at the nicest country clubs. Everyone and everything here gives your favorite seniors reasons to LIVE and LOVE it here!
This community is top notch! Very very consistent team that is led by phenomenal leaders and an executive director Jennifer that has been there for almost 20 years I believe. This is unheard of in this industry.
My parents spent almost two years at the Forum -- with experience in independent living, rehab and skilled nursing there. Prior to that, my mom had also been in rehab in two other facilities (one of which was very shiny, new and beautiful from an aesthetic perspective), which gives me a good comparison point. Two things really stood about to me about the Forum: (1) The quality and continuity of care on the rehab, skilled side was far greater than we saw in other facilities. For my family, this was really important, as we had experienced other (newer, more updated) facilities where there was constantly staff turnover, nurses or aides not showing up for shifts, etc. (And when a parent is wheelchair, bed bound, this is a huge concern!) We never experienced that at the Forum; in fact, many of their staff have been there for years. (2) Secondly, the staff really became like family to both my parents and to our family as a whole. The staff genuinely showed concern and interest in my parents as people (not just as elderly patients), and I could not believe the outpouring of love, support, and hugs our family received from the staff as our mother was dying, and later when our father died. I would highly recommend the Forum to others in need of rehab or skilled nursing.
Nicely updated apartments, wonderful food, and very caring and attentive staff. No wonder their vacancies are so few!
My family has been at the Forum for 5 years. We have been so lucky to have experienced all levels of care. The employees at the Forum are respectful, caring and extremely knowledgeable. They understand the complex issues of aging in place as well as the issues that arise while family members are in the Healthcare unit. We as a family are thankful for there caring attitude.
My family has experience with Rehab and Long Term Care at the Forum. The staff is caring, respectful and compassionate. Sandra, Nicole, Johnna, Jennifer, Isaac and Tabitha are just a few of the employees that make the Forum special. If youre looking for a nursing facility that truly cares about their residents, this is the place.
The Forum has been part of our family for over 20 years - my grandmother lived here in the mid 90s and then my parents moved in about 10 years ago. Weve seen all of the levels - Independent, Assisted and Skilled - and they are all great! Some of the employees have been there since my grandmother lived there. We are very fortunate that our mom is in such an awesome, loving, caring place!
My mother has had a lovely apartment at the Forum for almost 4 years and has been very happy and comfortable the entire time. It is a wonderful, inviting community that has a classic elegance for all its residents to enjoy. Not only are the apartments nicely appointed, but they are convenient to the dining room and activity areas. One of the most important points I want to convey is the sincerity and care that the staff gives to the residents. They are the truly lovely people, most have worked at the Forum for several years. This speaks volumes about quality of the individuals that are taking care of your loved ones. You will find that the staff go the extra mile to serve each person. The staff is kind, sensitive, supportive, and professional. I highly recommend The Forum if you are looking for a place to feel comfortable and at home.
My father toured several different senior living facilities in Johnson County before deciding on the Forum. My husband had worked there for many years so I knew that he would be happy and well cared for living in independent living. The apartments are beautiful and well maintained, the food is delicious and plentiful but the most important piece is that people are cared for like theyre caring for their own family members. It is small enough that everyone who works there knows the residents. They are treated with respect and dignity. He only lived in Independent living for a few months but he met some really nice people. When he became ill and had to move to the nursing unit for the last week of his life, again the care he received from the nurses and the nursing staff was wonderful. I appreciate the tender care that he was given in the last days of his life.
The Forum at Overland Park is a fantastic assisted living facility. Very clean and the aatf is top notch. Kelly gave us comfort as a family and Sandi is one of the best in the city. Our bbq family trusts them. 5 star spectacular
The staff is generally capable of doing their jobs. The management works well with the patients and if you have any issues they will listen to you and try to make workable changes. This has been contributed by someone who has lived in all three levels of care.
I lived at The Forum at Overland Park for 19 months in independent living. It was a good experience because:The kitchen is excellent;The staff was always helpful and pleasant; andThe residents were diverse, interesting and friendly.I left because I married, but would return if necessary.
We have been here at the resort for nearly 6 years. It is wonderful!Our staff is both friendly and always helpful. We have marvelous meals provided by a great chef and his excellent staff served by young folks that are patient and caring. We are surrounded by other folks like us, we are the smallest of similar facilities, who share our enjoyment and camaraderie daily. There is always something to do if one is so inclined. Last, we have the very best location, convenient to everything we need.Do we like it and recommend It? Absolutely!
My mother had a very successful stay here after surgery. Even when I could tell it was crazy busy nurse Simon responded and answered my questions. I highly recommend the Forum to anyone that has a loved one. I commend Simon he is a awesome!
Our mother was a resident at The Forum in both the rehab unit and the assisted living wing. The care she received from the nursing staff, therapists, and everyone involved with her care was exceptional! The social worker made sure her moves and care were coordinated with as little stress as possible, and the Executive Director was accessible and available and was always knowledgable about our moms situation. We would not have had her living anywhere else in the Kansas City area. This is a first class facility! Thank you to everyone who helped us!
My Mother lived at the Forum for the last 10+ years. She lived at all three levels of care and we were very happy with her care. She lived in Independent Living for 7 years. She enjoyed the camaraderie, took part is activities and loved the food. The dining room staff made special efforts to know peoples names, likes and dislikes. When she gave up her car, she took full advantage of the driver services the Forum offered, This gave her the opportunity to keep playing bridge and get to appointments without having to depend on others. Staying independent was important to her.When time came to for more care, the Assisted Living wing worked out very well. The staff was very attentive and caring.. The staff became friends of both my mother and me. They did their best to accommodate the special needs she had, both physically and medically.When she finally had to move to skilled nursing, I was amazed at her progress. The staff, once again, did everything they could to keep her mobile and still independent as possible in the final stages of her life. Once again the staff was attentive, efficient, understanding and caring.Over the years we had several birthday parties and special events there. The Physical Therapy department was also helpful.My family very much appreciated all the Forum did for my Mother and we highly recommend it.
Both of my parents moved to the Forum in 2013 and immediately felt at home. Not only were many of the residents already friends, former classmates, etc., but the staff was very welcoming and competent. After my mother passed away, my father moved to a smaller apartment. My father passed away this past summer. All through our familys tough times with our parents health, the Forum was always supportive, friendly, and so nice to deal with. I definitely recommend the Forum.
My father lived at The Forum for over 10 years. He moved from Independent Living to Assisted Living then to the Health Care Unit. I can not say enough about the loving care he received from the staff especially during his stay at the Health Care Unit. His care givers were incredible and treated him with the utmost dignity and respect. My siblings and I all live out of town so The Forum staff and residents were his adopted family. We will never forget what great care he received.
My mother was a resident at The Forum this past year and our family was very satisfied with the level of care she received. From the top administrators to the nursing staff, my mother received around the clock care, while the family was consistently updated on her progress. It was not uncommon to see the staff holding my moms hand on the way to therapy, which was very comforting to her and our family. I would highly recommend The Forum for your family member in need.Jeff Grantham, Overland Park
