Very happy with The Fountainsreviewed on: 11/17/2014 by Anonymous
Their move-in consultant was extremely helpful, they never got impatient with our multiple visits and questions, and everyone from the staff to the residents were helpful and welcoming. we are very happy we chose The Fountains for our mom.
Really Goodreviewed on: 09/05/2013 by Janet
They're very clean and the value is hard to dispute becasue dad definitely needs to be there. He doesn't engage in a lot of the activities but they do have a lot. They're going really good. The only problem and that's not with The Fountains, it's that Arizona state law, they can't have side rails on the beds. My dad keeps falling out of bed and the Arizona state law is against restraints. If anybody can change the law they ought to because he's falling out of his bed and his wheelchair. It's not their fault - they can't watch him every second.
the staff and the general feelreviewed on: 11/13/2015 by Anonymous
The thing that impressed me the most at The Fountains at La Cholla is the attitude of the staff and the general feel of the facility on a purely subjective level. So that was good. Bringing my mom from another facility on the east coast, comparing the two, the people here are interested in doing things rather than just sitting around getting older.
Tour The Fountainsreviewed on: 11/12/2014 by Pam C
The Fountains was the community that was the "best" fit for the priorities that were most important to my parents. Some of those were: affordability, location, convenience of covered parking, continuing care options located in the same campus area, dining facility, and the updated apartment amenities. There are common areas with books, computers and seating in various locations in the building. The unit patios are a nice amenity, along with the convenient laundry facilities placed throughout the building. Many of the residents have decorated the areas outside of their doors making the hallways inviting and individualized. Pictures and artwork can be hung in the units so that it feels like home. The Fountains has a staff member that helped my parents determine what pieces of their furniture would fit in their unit. It made the move much easier and my parents were so happy that so many of their things could come with them to their new home. I would definitely recommend touring The Fountains. I think you will like it.
