In addition to the care provided to our residents, our highest priority is to maintain a healthy, safe and happy home for everyone.

ROOMS AND COMMON AREAS
The facility is divided into four neighbor-hoods which allows for better cultural change.
Resident rooms can be private, semi-private and wards with personal space for each resident.  Residents or families/guardians can bring their own furniture or Park Forest will provide a bed, dresser and nightstand.  Housekeeping services are provided for all residents.

​KITCHEN AND DINING ROOMS

There is a primary dining room for most residents and also a dedicated quiet dining area for restorative dining and for residents wishing for a less stimulating area. 

Dietician-approved menus are changed four times a year and focus on each season.  Alternative menus are available at each meal to ensure everyone enjoys a healthy meal.  

There are coffee and tea times twice per day and snack and hydration carts which make their way through the facility three times per day.
