Welcome to The Forest at Duke
Over 800 residents from 38 different states have chosen to call The Forest home since its opening in 1992.
Today, 400 people live life to the fullest at The Forest, with the helpful care of 275 staff members. Residents are professors, gardeners, authors, CEOs, community volunteers, opera buffs, engineers, librarians, homemakers, artists—people from all walks of life who continue to learn, grow, mingle, and care. Along with growth and rejuvenation, they find security and peace of mind here as well. We think you will, too.
At The Forest, you can activate all of your options—from yoga to cardio, barbells to backstroke, power walking to personal training—and never stop moving, playing, stretching, strengthening your body, and keeping your brain in tip-top shape.
