good value

Compared to other places we have evaluated, the value at The Fountains at La Cholla is very good. The only complaint that my mom has expressed is that when they go down for Sunday brunch, the line is so long. She is diabetic and by the time she sits down she is feeling the insulin reaction. They are really on top of taking good care of mom though. For example, she recently had a fall and they were right there to help her and to care for her afterwards.

Tour The Fountains

reviewed 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.

It's been just excellent.

From the first day we visited the facility we felt it was warm, inviting, very friendly, both residents and staff. After visiting several others mom decided this was the place for her. She needed to sell her townhome in Colo so we went on the waiting list for a unit. One on the ground floor facing a courtyard became available within 6 weeks so we put down a deposit. She moved in 2 weeks ago and is very happy. The facility is friendly, helpful, clean, food is great. Though we were rather surprised to have to pay $47 for a second set of keys which seems rather steep and should have been communicated when we ordered them as we weren't told there would be a cost. We needed some closing documents notorized for the sale of mom's townhome and they sent a staff member to her unit to help us out. She even made copies for us. She hasn't had a chance to use many of the amenities yet as she is having trouble with her knee, but looks forward to the exercise classes and other activities offered.
