    My parents have been in this beautiful facility for years. After my dad passed, my mom was at the mercy of the management. Who in their right minds would force a 96 year old woman to move from her apartment? The Management's needs always outweighed her needs. It happened before, too. Shame on them.

    My mother was at the Forum for rehabilitation services after a fall. The people are great and helped her get back her independence. Mom particularly liked the therapists and the food.

    This is the kindest place; every level of staff here friendly and kind, with the residents comfort and happiness as an obvious priority. My elderly parents have been here for 5 years, and they and the family truly feel blessed with how they are cared for.

    My wife spent 6 months in the skilled nursing center. She couldn't do anything for herself including talking or understanding when you talked to her. The staff did an exceptional job taking care of her. I spent a lot of time there and saw how difficult a job they have. Any issue I had was addressed immediately. They have many caring and dedicated people working there. Several have been there for many years. They certainly knew how to care her.

    My dad has been at the Forum health center since May. We have been very pleased with the staff and the care he has received. Specifically, Sharonda, Bobbie, Erica, and Shameka have gone above and beyond to ensure the absolute best care for my dad. I'd like to list some other staff members who have given my dad exceptional care as well. Vyteis, Tiffany, Lana, Shawn, Rommel, Ronald, Gloria, Victoria, Albine, and Jen. I'd also like to include Eric, Kristin, and the two ladies that plan all the activities! I hope I haven't missed anyone!

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
