  • I had a pleasant tour of Forestview. Attractive decor and roomy bright dining room and various activity rooms. A nice variety of activities I would enjoy in the monthly program. The resident studio and 1 bedroom apts. I viewed were a good size for the price. The building faces a treed ravine and is in a quiet area.

  • Tough Decision

    The most difficult decision to make is when we were told that our loved one could not come home after her recovery at the hospital. We never knew that we would have to bring her to an Assisted Living retirement home. With the dementia we know it was no longer safe to go home alone. We were completely clueless on assisted living retirement homes. After doing multiple tours of other retirement homes, we looked at Forestview. We were so impressed with staff, cleanliness of all the facilities. The rooms were all well lit. We actually felt as if we were is a hotel. From the entrance to the Country Kitchen to the Bistro. We decided that this was the place for our loved one. We wanted to give Forestview a try for at least 3 months to see if our shy, non English speaking mother would thrive in this environment. This shy mom, loves the staff, engages in some activities. Who knew she would love to paint! The staff has even learned a few words in Italian! We are very happy to see her happy.

  • Beautiful place with state of the art facilities and luxury for residents. But too pricey on a day to day basis and too isolating for the location for public transportation. Although I would choose this place if it were me and my partner moving in, because the views are amazing and the staff very welcoming!
