Dearest Residents and Staff of The Forum: I would like to extend my deepest gratitude for your support of my dear parents. This has been a trying time since my mother broke her hip 4 weeks ago. I have spent 3 of the past 4 weeks here living amongst you. I must say that I have never spent time with such a caring and supportive group of people. You have expressed your interest and concern to my Mom's well-being. You recognize and appreciate the wonderful qualities of my parents while at the same time worrying about their fragilities. And you go out of your way to care for each other. I have enjoyed learning more about you, sharing stories about the frigid north or your vast and varied life experiences. I am honored to call many of you "friend", especially the 7:30 AM breakfast crew with whom I have had the fortune to chat whilst I nurse my first coffee of the day. The staff at The Forum is unbelievable. You know people by names and truly go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure residents are cared for and appreciated. You have difficult jobs, but do them with professionalism, compassion and aplomb. As I head back home, I look forward to seeing you all again, and thank you with all my heart for the kindness you have shown me and my family. With fondest regards, Ted

My mother just passed away in her room at the Forum after living in four different apartments during her twelve years there. She spent seven years in independent living, four years in assisted living and two months in Bridges. Every area was clean, welcoming and well managed. Special thanks to Jan Kalinder in Ambassador, to Mary Olvera in Bridges and to the caregivers in both places. Mother often said how lucky she was to live at the Forum and how she appreciated the good care she received wherever she was. Thank you to all of you who were so kind and compassionate with my mother. She and I know how much your care meant every day.
