catherine reed andrews - I'm a loved one of a resident or client
So grateful!

My sister has lived at Forest Hills in the Health Care Center for a while. Before the pandemic, they had wonderful activities as well as great nursing care. In the pandemic they have done an incredible job to keep everyone safe, to figure out ways to have safe activities and/or virtual or safe visitation zones (following CDC guidelines). The staff is working under challenging circumstances and they continue to be kind, patient and deliver high quality care. We are so very grateful my sister can live in such a great facility.

Awful treatment by staff

My father was there after a fall, and he has dementia. Some of the nurses and staff are rude and unfriendly. They frequently yelled at him when he wandered into areas they didn't want him to enter, without understanding wandering is a common aspect of dementia. Although were were told their staff were trained in how to communicate with patients and residents with cognitive impairments, many of the staff clearly did not receive or ignored their training. My father was often agitated and depressed while at Forest Hills. It was awful. Do not send an elderly family member with any sort of cognitive impairments.
