Do not take your loved ones to Skilled Nursing at The Forum of Tucson. They left my 92 year old father sit in a wheel chair in wet diapers for 5 weeks ... he slept in his clothes ... he did not get the wound care needed to get rid of bed sore nor the physical therapy needed after his fall/broken hip. All they care about is the money .... they actually charged him for a private room for 4 weeks of his stay when he was in a semi private room. Nurses kept telling us he wasn't getting better because of his diet when in fact they were preparing his food (and my father always eats everything he is served). Amazing enough after getting him out of there his wound was totally healed in less than 2 weeks and he is out of the wheelchair and using a walker.

Part 2 of my review of The Forum at Tucson... To continue- C. Food and Beverage offers: 1. Full hot breakfast and Dinner are included each day and the dining room is open from 7 AM -7 PM. 2. A complimentary lunch consisting of 2 soups and 1/2 sandwich is served in our Bistro each day. 3. On Sundays there is brunch from 11 AM until 1 PM, and the soup and half sandwich is served from 4-6 pm. Also the first Sunday of the month we have Friends and Family brunch where you can invite 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 12 for a complimentary dinner with you! 4. The dining room menus offer choices that no other place we visited could match. A host of alternative menu items are offered continuously. 5. Something you won't probably see at another place is that items, including deserts may be removed from the dining room (in little boxes) for later consumption. Further, meals may be ordered for pick up when you are too busy or don't feel well. They also deliver you meals upon request (first 5 deliveries are free-a small fee for delivery is charged for more than 5 meals per month). 6. You can actually eat breakfast, soup and half sandwich for lunch and dinner everyday. Your kitchen range becomes unused in a hurry! D. We have a lot of ways for a resident to get involved. Our Resident Executive Council consists of 5 committees and the chairpersons of each committee, joined by a president, vice-president and member at large. Committees have monthly meetings. The Council meets with the Director of The Forum at least once a month. We also have a resident meeting each month with both the Forum Executive Director and the department heads present. The Forum costs depend upon the apartment size you decide upon. It offers a lot for the money! Since we were coming as a couple having everything under one roof was important. You do not have to go outside (or drive) to be able to visit a spouse who needs assistance in skilled nursing, assisted living or memory care. They offer everything we need.

We recently moved my elderly parents into an assisted care unit at The Forum and have been very happy with it. Most important my parents are also very happy there! They speak highly of the care givers - especially Stephen and really enjoy the food and choices. Their unit is kept very clean by the staff and they seem to understand the needs of my parents. There is ample room for the 2 of them in the one bedroom unit and they are beginning to feel very at home there. I would highly recommend this place to others.

We really like it here and believe you would as well. There is a lot of competition, particularly in Tucson. We reviewed 6 or 7 places before we selected The Forum. At the time there were 3 major reasons we selected The Forum. They were, 1) its location; 2) the fact that it offers continued care, including Independent Living apartments; Assisted Living apartments and rooms; Skilled Nursing; Rehabilitation facility; and Memory Care Center all under one roof; and 3) it offered great amenities. A. Amenities of interest 1. A nice library which is well maintained by a resident committee. 2. A living room for parties, presentations and musical events. It includes a baby grand piano and an organ. 3. A large multi-purpose room for meetings, slide presentations, exercise classes and movies. It has a spinet piano, TV and blue ray/DVD player and a popcorn machine! 4. Small fitness center which is used by a lot of residents. 5. Swimming pool and hot tub which has a nice covered patio with overhead fans which is also used for parties or just relaxation. Pool exercise is offered. 6. Covered parking for all residents. 7. Happy hour each Friday from 4 until 6 PM - includes live music. 8. A really great Activities Program which offer both internal programs as well as trips and lunch/dinner and presentations/movie opportunities out of town. 9. A really great transportation department that not only offers personal service but also free service within 5 miles of the community for doctor, pharmacies, bank, food, stores, shopping b centers, etc. Transportation is offered each Sunday to Roman Catholic and NorthMinster Presbyterian services. There are also Episcopal services every other week and Jewish services once a month in the community. 10. There are two beauty shops on the premises as well. B. Apartment comments: 1. I believe there are 7 different style one and two bedroom apartments offered. There are 149 units in Independent Living. 2. Apartments contain fully equipped galley type kitchens. (Some people do still cook!) 3. The Maintenance Department is well staffed and responds to work requests in a timely manner. Overall the building is well appointed and maintained. 4. Each apartment has its own heating and air conditioning unit. 5. All apartments include a private, small, covered patio/porch. Part 1 of 2

As a referral agent with years of experience working with the facilities in Tucson, The Forum is the very reliable. They follow through on what they say they will do and are truly caring individuals. Many facilities just want to fill their beds but The Forum wants to make sure the potential resident is a good fit. They have many medical professionals available on their property making it easier for your loved one to "age in place".
