    My father came to the Forum independent living on January 5, 2018 and after 3 months my sister and I think it's one of the best decisions we've ever made. Dad loves it. I love it. The activity director, Mark is really good and there is tons going on all the time. High quality food. You can have your pet if you want. You do not need a car. There are weekly shuttles to grocery and other stores. They will take you to doc and other appointments. Tipping is not allowed. They have trips to the theatre, restaurants, orchestra, Louisville sports and many others. Out of town over night trips too. There are craft classes, creative writing, games, exercise, swimming, aerobics. A podiatrist comes to the Forum. They have a hair salon/barbershop you do need to pay for. There is a happy hour twice a week. You cannot wear jeans to dinner. There is no alcohol at meals. There are religious services, computer classes. They seem to have all different types of living situations. My dad has an apartment. We got him a scooter and he zips around everywhere. The ages seem to range from late 60's to over 100. The campus has plenty of green grass, lots of large mature trees, a Brook. Oh, dad has a patio too that overlooks the quad. This place is a blessing since mom's death. I highly recommend.

    My parents moved into a duplex home at The Forum in 2006. As they aged they decided to scale down and we moved them into the main building where they lived there for twelve years until February 28, 2018. The Forum had decided it was "time for them to move on", meaning they were going to exercise the 30 day notice of termination clause in the lease that they signed upon moving in. Their reason for terminating the lease was that they needed more care than The Forum could offer. My mother is 92 and my father is almost 98 years old. I can't tell you how hard it was moving them from the place they had grown so comfortable in and had hoped to live out their final days. Last year on two separate occasions they had to deal with bed bug extermination. Since they never left The Forum I have to assume the bugs were acquired on site and not brought in by my parents. With all this being said my main complaint is with the Executive Director, Bill Husley and the Resident Services Director, Darlene Fehder. Neither one of them ever bothered to take the time and check in on them during the move-out nor even to bid a farewell after twelve years of living there. Two more spineless people I have never seen in my life.

    We have been residents at The Forum since January, 2016 and we love our new home. The meals are delicious, the staff are amazing, the campus is gorgeous, the many programs are interesting and stimulating and our villa is beautiful. Best of all- the residents are amazing. We feel as if they immediately wrapped their arms around us and welcomed us to this beautiful community. Al and Myra Earley

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
