Lottie:  The Forum looks like a remarkable place for seniors.  My mother-in-law resided in something very similar here in Illinois until her passing.  She enjoyed a social world and care that was comforting to her family, as they knew she was safe, well taken care of, and provided for.  If only all families could experience such peace of mind ...

Hello Gene -- I think we'll see more of these facilities in the future as the Baby Boomers age. They provide a great living environment for many people.

Hi Debe -- glad you enjoyed this post. The Forum is a great senior living community, in a beautiful setting.

Lottie, based from your post, The Forum sounds to be one of the best retirement communities in California. Elderly seniors deserve to be pampered in a community where their needs, welfare, and lifestyle are meticulously considered. Having a healthy and balanced life should not be taken for granted as age increases, hence it is essential for elderly seniors to enjoy playing games, swimming, fine dining experiences, walking around, traveling, watching movies, and doing all their tasks within a retirement community.

Here in Charlotte, North Carolina, there are also senior living communities that provide the same services for elderly seniors. In most cases, seniors just rent a place in one of the best senior living communities Charlotte N. C. area or in a posh senior living communities Charlotte -based services.

Hi Tom -- The Forum is great, as are a number of places up and down the Peninsula and in Silicon Valley. I've done a series of posts about some of them in San Carlos, Redwood City, Menlo Park, Palo Alto and Portola Valley as well.

You have some great places in your area, too, I see. They will become more and more in demand as Baby Boomer age.

I am glad there are great places in our area too, Lotta. I will check out those in your list, soon. Thank you for your response.

Hi Lottie, I sincerely apologize for the typographical error. It should be Lottie, not Lotta. Thank you.

Posted by Tom about 10 years ago

Good morning, Tom - no problem with the name. You should see my typos when I'm texting from my Blackberry!

I apologize for the mess in the previous post!  I copied the text from MS Word, and it seems to have included much more than I intended.  I've included solely the message below, so feel free to delete the first one. 

The Forum seems remarkably luxurious with exceptional charm.  It's sad that due to the nation's economic circumstances, fewer retirees are able to afford this sort of retirement lifestyle.  I cannot speak for the west coast, but here on the eastern seaboard, many developers are finding innovative ways to provide the amenities of luxurious retirement communities at lower-cost alternatives.  This is true across the region but especially within North Carolina retirement communities.

Hi David  - thanks for your comments, and no worries about the weird Word coding; I, too, learned the hard way that Word has hidden code that pops up unexpectedly on AR posts.

The Forum at Rancho San Antonio is, indeed, a luxurious place to call hom. With the high cost of housing in the Silicon Valley, and the rapid appreciation over the years, many Seniors have the funds available to be able to enjoy The Forum. While not for everyone, those fortunte ones who do live here enjoy it.

We need a wide range of housing for Seniors - it's definitely not a one-size-fits-all market.
