The early chapters

On September 21, 1991, The Forum opened its doors to its first four residents. Within two months, The Forum had 163 residents. Two things have remained constant since the beginning: The warmth, helpfulness and the sense of family, that have always been part of The Forum’s culture, and the good food. In the beginning there was no landscaping. One resident remembered “not a bush or a tree, or even a weed.” Today’s beautiful landscaping came later.

At the outset, The Forum offered only a small fitness center and no swimming pool. The first pool, a cloverleaf shape that did not lend itself to swimming laps, was built in 1992 and replaced by our rectangular pool in 2006. At the outset there were two saunas, but these were little used and soon phased out. The present larger and well-equipped fitness center was designed in 2007. The Forum’s library has grown from a relatively small collection, primarily of books donated by the new residents, to the first-rate facility we enjoy today. The Forum’s highly rated Health Care Center was open in 1991; Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing opened in 1992.

Our present

The Forum is now well into its 30th year. Nestled in the beautiful foothills where Cupertino meets Los Altos, The Forum offers an engaging, dynamic lifestyle for today’s seniors. Our resort-style activities and amenities inspire you with potential and possibility. We now have more than 500 residents, over 30 groups and clubs with two boards made up of 100% residents that provide overall governance of The Forum.

Our next chapters

After years of preparation and planning, we are far along the path of transforming our vision for expansion into a fully executed plan.

We recently added 23 new independent living villas and two new dining venues. A brand new, freestanding memory care building is nearing completion and additions and upgrades to the assisted living community, skilled nursing community, fitness and multi-purpose building continue.

Forward looking

Moving forward, we will continue to position The Forum as a Life Plan Community of excellence while fulfilling our mission, vision and values with goals such as implementing leading-edge technology that positions us as a five-star leader in health care quality, and fosters an environment that gives our residents a strong voice in shaping and guiding our community through equity ownership.

“Time has gone by so quickly. I have lived here for 13 years and loved every minute of it.”
