Reviews of The Forum

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.read more

Clean and keep you informed of every move!Can’t say enough good about the whole staff and recently awarded a “no deficiencies” status!Where else would you want your loved ones to go???read more

I have worked at a few other rehab/skilled nursing facilities/nursing homes but the people that work right along beside me at the Forum at Brookside are some of the greatest individuals I know. They are truely in it for the love of serving others. One usually sees how much the staff loves their residents when you enter on the unit. The residents are happy and you see staff engaging with them. There are great residents, families, and staff at the Forum at Brookside and I truely love going into work every day.read more

The Forum at Brookside is more than a happy and comfortable retirement village with beautiful facilities. The Forum at Brookside is composed of a large, friendly and talented staff and with many, many warm and familiar faces. It is a neighborhood, a growing family, all sharing in our unique and extraordinary journey of life, with the various pains and joys of one another as newfound brothers and sisters. Is there any other way? Billy Coxread more

It is a neighborhood, a growing family, all sharing in our unique and extraordinary journey of life, with the various pains and joys of one another as newfound brothers and sisters. Is there any other way?Don’t get me wrong. All of the above and more is included in a special package when you join The Forum. But after considering other resident retirement centers, Velma and I thought The Forum would suit us to a “T”. We love our villa, and we are happy to have been able to join this growing family of warm and caring residents at The Forum at Brookside. Velma and I like to think of The Forum as a clean, neat, courteous and efficient home, away from home. Billy Coxread more

The Forum at Brookside is a wonderful place for elderly care. It was difficult when my mother's physical health failed and home care was no longer a consideration. The Forum at Brookside provides wonderful meals, medical care, great rest, a social environment where the residents can get involved in activities, and a staff who truly cares for my mom. The staff at The Forum at Brookside engages my mom in banter, speaks to her kindly and truly cares for her needs. My mom requires total physical care, as well as bandaging of a wounds issue acquired before she became a resident there. They care for her impeccably and I can't express my appreciation enough nor acknowledge highly enough the great peace of mind they have provided me with the quality care they provide for my mom. Sara, an administrator there has provided unprecedented one on one kindness and consideration for me and my mom, and with all considered, I have to recommend The Forum at Brookside very highly!read more

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.read more

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.read more

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 Earleyread more
