  • Safe but lonely

    We chose this community because of the activities provided and the food, but both have been impacted because of the virus. The room sizes are nice, my mother has two nice walk in closets. She ate here once before the shutdown and they served restaurant style. Now because of COVID, they deliver the food to her room. My favorite part about the community so far has been that they really try to create a community environment. They had a parade of antique cars come by and the staff did Christmas in July carols in the hallway. They are making an effort during the restrictions. I would recommend Forwood Manor.

  • Excellent care! I call the staff mom's "Forwood Angels."

    My mother has been in Forwood Manor for over 5 years, first in Independent Living and now in Assisted Living. The best thing about Fowood is the staff. My mother absolutely loves them, so of course I do too. I call them her Forwood Angels! Back when I could visit in person I enjoyed meeting the nurses and managers -- they are such caring people, and getting to know them gave me full confidence that mom was in the best of hands. I should add that Mom also LOVES the food. Lots of choices. And when she's too tired to go to the dining room for breakfast they bring it to her -- happily! During the Covid-19 pandemic I have kept in close touch with management and they have been meticulous in keeping mom safe. Of course it's sad that I can't visit her now, but at least I know she's safe and happy, and Forwood has facilitated zoom calls so that we can still see each other from afar. Thank you Forwood Manor for giving me piece of mind!

  • Not a retirement community for Mom

    We have been touring communities in the Wilmington area for our Mom. This community is very nice, get appeal when walking up to the main entrance, the elderly have porches on the first floor. (Loved it). Friendly front desk person and a great room just off the main lobby. The elderly had an entertainer preforming and they were enjoying it. Only a couple of down falls for this community, the front hallways to get to the assisted living or any main common areas (like dinning room, the front lobby great room, activities room) are long and dark (need to invest in better lighting). The carpets are dated and very dark, which doesn't help with the lighting of the hallways. The independent living very beautiful, but they need to make improve the assisted living to the standards of the independent living. The assisted living looks like a step-sister and has not had any attention to it. Apartments in the assisted living looked more like a converted nursing home room. Nothing worth mentioning. Prices were a little high, for not a great assisted living. Not a place for Mom.
