Get to Know Our Neighborhood

Part of what makes Forwood Manor so special is the location, right in the heart of Wilmington, DE. Being in a place where everything is within walking distance or a short drive is incredibly helpful for staying active in every way.

Community isn’t a building or even a single group of people. It encompasses an array of connection points. Maybe it’s the barista who pours a sweet tea as soon as you walk through the door, or the cashier who calls you by name, or the musicians at the local farmer’s market who ask your favorite tune. When you feel that sense of place and belonging, it’s home. We’re fortunate and grateful to have that type of community here, and we think you’ll love it just as much as we do.
