We have been here 15 months and are very happy and satisfied. We enjoy many activities, such as exercise classes, dancing, and education sessions. The quality of all is excellent.

I've moved in at The Fountains at La Cholla. I really like it. I'm almost in and settled, so everything is just fine. I'm perfectly satisfied. My apartment is all decorated, and everything seems really good. The staff has been wonderful since I've been here. I don't have any complaints at all. They have just been wonderful to me. The food is OK. I'm very particular with what I eat. I buy my own groceries, so I eat all organic. I eat some of my meals downstairs, but mostly I cook in my apartment because I don't eat fatty fried stuff, but the meals that I had down there had been alright. I have met some really nice people here and enjoy visiting with them. I think all is well. They're topnotch as far as I'm concerned. The place is clean. The staff is friendly. I don't have any complaints whatsoever. I think it is a marvelous place to live.

The Fountains was nice, and we enjoyed it, but it was too far away from where my folks lived. They want something close to where they lived so they could be familiar with the community and something with shopping nearby. At the Fountains, there was a big hospital complex, but it didn't have shopping close by.

The rooms were very fine and satisfactory. We would have liked it if they had dryers in them. The washing was down the hall. The food was great. They had good meals. It looked like there was variety and options.

There were nice grounds. You had a place to walk around, and they had nice options inside for exercise, games, and different things.

I really like my visit at The Fountains at La Cholla because it wasn’t such a hard sell kind of thing. Some people I got calls from were really pushing for the hard sell. They put me on the waiting list. When I walked in there, they were having a big musical gathering in the dining room which I know my mom would love. Their one bedroom unit was really nice. Their dining is kind of like a restaurant style menu with tablecloths. The price was also very reasonable.

I have friends here in The Fountains at La Cholla, and I shopped around among about six other facilities before I chose this one. The staff are very helpful. The rooms are wonderful, beautifully cared for, and beautifully made. With activities, you name it, they've got it. They have a recreational program, and they have a free bus service to various shopping areas, to some of the downtown places, and other places of interest around the city. What impressed me most is their friendliness. It is very well secured, 24/7, 365, complete security and people on duty every minute of every day.

My mother-in-law visited four or five other facilities, but she chose The Fountain. She is in the Independent living. The biggest reason she liked it was because the place has a fault monitor built in. If somebody for whatever reason needs to call the paramedics, they have somebody 24 hours that will stay with the patient until help arrives. They provide two meals a day. There is a continental breakfast and your choice of lunch or dinner. They have a pretty nice menu although she is not always happy with it. She is diabetic and has a lot of food restriction. But she can prepare her own meals in her apartment's kitchen. They also have a cafeteria style or deli style where you can order custom sandwiches. She only moved there less than month ago and is still getting used to the people and how they do things. They go out to different locations like the desert museums. They arrange trips to see plays and so on and so forth.

Upon walking into the lobby there is an immediate good feeling. Everyone -- staff and residents alike -- are smiling and welcoming. The food is very good and nice variety, maintenance problems are taken care of quickly, and the staff is quick to lend needed assistance and is caring and friendly. Love it!

We were able to look at The Fountains at La Cholla, and it was very, very nice. Their units were very nice. The lady that ran the place was excellent and was really efficient. The cafeteria was good and clean.

The staff of the Fountains at La Cholla seemed to be fine. I had no complaints at that time. One thing I liked about it was that it is close to a hospital.

The Fountains at La Cholla is very nice and the people running it are very compassionate. I think that my sister gets very good care there. She has a private room, which is not the smallest room available. It has a little kitchenette with a refrigerator, a sink and a microwave, a bedroom, and one bathroom. The staff is very nice and very cooperative. They hesitate to move her or to suggest moving her because she is content there and has never asked to be moved. She has been in one place and she was adamant about leaving it. I consider the food very nice. They do provide rides around Tucson to interesting places. There are a wide range of activities such as Bingo, games, and movies -- that sort of stuff. They have classes in painting, current events, and various subjects that the groups might be interested in. They have intimate groups for conversation or dialogue. I don't know if she gets all the medical attention that she needs, but all of her personal needs are met.

We visited The Fountains La Cholla with my mom. She felt that it was too large and too expensive. She'd probably get lost inside the facility. The rooms seemed nice, but they weren't as large as other facilities. The staff was very helpful, and they were also very nice to her and offered a lot of assistance. I thought it was very attractive and almost luxurious. Mom felt like it was a large hotel, but she wanted something homier. I thought it was a very nice facility.

I visited the Fountains and thought it was very nice. The staff seemed very helpful. We ate there, and the food was average to above average. The facility was reasonably priced. The original building could use some upgrading, but the newer facilities were very nice.

My grandmother stayed in this facility when my grandfather passed away. The staff were very professional and courteous, not only to myself, but to my grandmother and any visiting family and friends. My grandmother did pass away only a few weeks after staying here, but not due to any fault of theirs. She enjoyed her stay and in her last few moments she told me that she had a great life and loved everyone around her, she included some of the staff members when she told me about this. When she finally passed, the staff helped me and my family to cope, a lot more than I thought they would, and they also attended her funeral. That was something I had never heard of or seen before and it was felt throughout the family.

In Tucson there are several different assisted living facilities to choose from. The Fountains has one of the best reputations for having to most to do and having the greatest grounds. I was very impressed with the rooms and the overall cleanliness of the whole facility. The staff seemed very friendly and knowledgeable. The activities available were also very impressive. Not only did the facility offer a wide range of activities on site, but they also provided transportation to other activities off site. My Grandmother was very impressed with the beauty salon that they had on site for guests. I think this made her feel at ease to not have to replace her old salon. The only negative that we could find was the price. Everything was top of the line and very impressive and I am sure they are able to do that with how much each guest is paying to live there.
