The staff at Riviera were friendly during my visit. I met a lot of people. They had different activities, like cards games, board games, and singing nights. Their dining area was nice, and the food was good.
I had a tour at Fountainview. The place was clean, and the rooms were adequate. The staff was helpful and tried to answer all of my questions. Their residents looked fine and contented. Overall, it was good and busy.
The staff at Fountainview was very informative about what they offered. The layout of the campus was very conducive to the needs of my family member. The services that they're offering were great. The campus itself, the layout, the orientation, where the offices were as it relates to the living quarters were laid out very well. It looked like a community in a community. It would be the first place I'd recommend to anybody to take a look at because of the facility itself.
My mother-in-law was in Riviera, and it is a fantastic place. I wouldn't mind being there myself. The dining room experience is very professional. They have real tablecloths, real napkins, and real flowers. I would never have guessed that a place like the Riviera would have that high-quality presentation, and I think that everyone I saw there had a good attitude and were very caring. Catherine was very professional, and I would give her the Award of the Year for reaching out to people and being a people person. I think it's great that they have visiting pastors, and it's very well-attended. They are also very diverse. They have a Catholic service and a generic service. The presentation is really well-done, and the place is just outstanding. It had the largest step-in showers with room for the caregiver to be inside that area and assisting with showers. They have entryways that are very well-monitored and round-the-clock security. Some of the residents also have a little personal garden and pets. They had a lot of parking in the front, back, and on all sides. You can park in the neighborhood, too. What makes Riviera outstanding is the atrium, which as you walk in, you get a feeling of space. They have vaulted ceilings for the entryway. They have an excellent setting and prices. The people that served the food were in uniform, and their attention to detail and cleanliness are note-worthy. Catherine has the right approach in attracting people to that place because she is a people person and she knows how to make people calm. When you're calm, you can connect to other people.
I live in assisted living at Fountainview, and I’ve been very happy here. The grounds are beautiful. They have independent living here as well as assisted living. There are five buildings: one is assisted living and the other four are independent living. I have a comfortable one-bedroom apartment with my own furniture. I get assistance with bathing and dressing, medication management, and three meals a day. The food is pretty good. I was in another facility before this that wasn’t quite as good. They really make an effort here. We have our own dining room, but the food is prepared over on the independent living side. If we want, we can eat in their dining room, although the food is very similar. I only eat over there if I have a guest because I can’t have a guest here.
I fell in love with Fountainview. I do not believe you could find a better place. Everything was incredible and perfect for a situation like that of my mother-in-law. I thought the dining area was nice. The one thing that made us nervous was the fact that they wanted people to be able to walk into the dining room, and we were not sure at that time if my mother-in-law would be able to manage that, but she was doing remarkably well, so I thought we might still have a chance. The apartments were absolutely beautiful. I thought the staff was very nice, personable, and seemed to know everybody in the area. It was definitely a place where I could see leaving somebody that I cared about. I would be happy to live there myself.
We only visited Fountainview. The place is beautiful; however, it requires too much walking for any senior citizen. There are five different buildings that all meet in the middle. Anna, who toured us, was very nice, and the people were very friendly. The place had a lot of amenities and was very clean and well kept.
Although the facility is a bit expensive, there were multiple features that made the price worth it in the end. The facility has a gateman to keep track of the building visitors. The program has various activities adaptable to residents' needs based on level of care. Residents with more advanced stages of dementia would have their own group. The management is very responsive to concerns of residents and family members. There are supportive and stimulating activities for residents. The staff members work extremely hard at their jobs and show kindness and compassion. The staff members offer a structured atmosphere conducive to the growth of each resident. The approach is strictly professional, but staff members are often personable.
This is a beautiful community. It is for seniors of all ages. The rooms have a kitchenette but all meals are in the beautifully decorated dining room. Amenities include a salon and huge pool area. The only downside is that if a resident’s health declines and they go to the hospital they may bit be allowed back. They cannot accommodate the highest levels of care. It has a covenant location close to shopping and restaurants. They provide transportation and onsite activities.
We had to move my mother-in-law down from Orlando. We looked around at other places none of them were as nice as Fountainview. She loves the place and everyone is so friendly. We highly recommend this place! ! We don't have to worry about her because she is in good hands. There are so many activities for everyone and the staff is patient and helpful.
