no better place for a loved one, exceeded all expectations, caring community

If you want a great, caring place to send a loved one, Forge Hill is the place to go. Second to none. [name removed] is a great manager, and it's clear how much he truly cares about the residents. All of the nurses and medical staff, the CNA's, the maintenance staff etc., are all great, caring people. My mother had MS and other health issues which severely limited her mobility, and never once did she have a bed sore nor complain about the staff. As a matter of fact, she loved them all. And she was hard to please. When she passed, there were so many staff that were heartbroken, as they really cared about her. None of the negative things you hear about Assisted Living facilities apply to Forge Hill. I recommend it to anyone and will continue to sing their praises and refer them.... Read more

Our new home

We are currently residents at Benchmark Senior Living at Forge Hill and overall things have been good for us here at this facility. Our move in process was timely and efficient. The staff here are very friendly, positive and efficient. The variety of meals is unlimited. However, they are often only lukewarm. I've already spoken to one of the chefs about that. The facility is very clean. So far overall, I have no complaints. However, many of the other residents are extremely negative about everything.

Good Experience

It looked like a beautiful facility. My loved one, has a 1 bedroom with kitchenette, and it is quite nice. Of course, not what she was used to, but very adequate for her needs. She has been joining in some of the activities, which is a bonus as she had lost her few contacts over the past years for various reasons. It's good to hear of her participation.

Gracious Living--At a Price.

I would recommend if you can afford it. We picked this community because, it's a good location, continuous dining 7 am to 7 pm, and attractive facilities. It's very friendly and homey, but expensive. They keep in very close touch with family of residents.

friendly and responsive staff

We really like how responsive the staff members have been, anytime we reach out by phone or email we usually get an immediate response. The common areas of the community are very clean but the house keeping of our loved ones apartment could be a little better. We do wish they had more of an ambassador's program for the new residents moving in. Our loved one received a lot of good information during the move in process from the staff which was great, but it was very over whelming so our loved one has forgotten some things, so it would be nice if residents could be apart of the program to show the newer residents where things are and how things work.

Review for Benchmark Senior Living at Forge Hill

I am not happy with the care, that my loved one has been receiving. They are not getting what is required. The food quality is fine. Sometimes, they are not notifying my loved one during meal time. They are short staffed. It's a great community for anyone who requires less care. I am more concerned about the care services, and they have not been following through with assisting my loved one. Overall, It's a nice community, and they are down to earth.

Short-Lived But Great Stay

I thought it was very nice. I'm just disappointed that my loved one didn't get to enjoy it longer! During her short stay there, it was a great atmosphere, and the people were very friendly.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and the people were nice but the dining room was very small, not very appealing and almost looked like an office break room. It felt kind of cold, so if you are someone who just wants to be alone this is probably the place. Also the pricing structure was not going to work with our family.

Our tour experience

Our family was able to do a virtual tour and they did a good job taking us around the community. We were looking into another community at the time, and the reason we did not choose Benchmark was because they did not really have a backyard outside area where our loved one could walk around freely without having an escort be with her the entire time.

Great place for mother in law

We chose Benchmark Senior Living because of the director and the people at the facility, they all seemed very happy. They also have a great reputation and the facility looks nice. The room sizes are adequate. My mother in law thinks that the food post COVID has been horrendous, prior to COVID, she thought it was just ok. The food isn't really fresh and there is not a lot of variety. My favorite part about this community would be how close it is to us and that she is happy and well cared for. I would recommend to a friend or family member.

The community was always clean. The staff tries to keep the residents engaged and are very friendly. They also have good communication with the families when they need. My family member is a little reluctant to receive help, but the staff is very accommodating and with always be willing to talk with us and address any of our concerns. My family member complains about the food, so we think it could be a little better. They do have activities available for the residents.

Very nice place but avoid third floor at all cost during heating season. Heat from first two floors rises and they have no control over it. Not unusual for the hallways to be 90 degrees and residents have doors and windows open on warmer winter days.

Needing More Consistency

The care is going a well as it can for my parents. The staff are nice, helpful, and attentive. My only complaint is the lack in consistency. I have asked to separate my parents clothes, there are labels to see. I put a big note on his walker to be in a specific area to avoid falls. These are not always, consistently done. The meals varies, it is good some days and not good on other days.
