A place to call home.
The Forest at Duke is a vibrant community, celebrating 30 years in the heart of Durham, North Carolina. In February of 2023, we opened a new state-of-the-art Small House Health Center, and with that new building, we have a unique opportunity to have new residents join us directly in Assisted Living.
While health centers can feel fragmented and institutional, The Forest’s new Small House model of care provides individualized care in a homelike setting. Supported by a collaborative team, residents are empowered in their decision making, maintaining their autonomy regardless of their health changes or challenges.
Residents in Assisted Living receive support with daily activities like bathing, dressing, housekeeping, medication management, and laundry. Our team provides just the right level of support to help residents maintain their independence, which is unique to each and every resident.
Our Health Center serves as the framework of healthcare at The Forest, recreating a family atmosphere and inspiring meaningful connections between residents and team members.Learn More
From start to finish, our sales counselors are here to walk you through the process.
Assisted Living with The Forest at Duke includes an amortized entry fee, as well as a monthly fee. Memory support is offered at no additional cost to our residents. Our sales counselors can provide you with an up-to-date rate sheet upon request.
Before scheduling a tour, our administrative team performs a quick qualification process, ensuring that The Forest at Duke can be part of your planning. Potential residents and/or their responsible party should complete Form A, Form D, and Form E as the first step in pursuing potential residency. All forms and supporting documentation can be submitted hard copy or digitally.
Once qualified, we invite prospective residents and their guests to tour our Small House Health Center with their assigned sales counselor. We can answer questions, tour the private residence and amenity spaces, and talk through next steps.
