When I first visited The Fountains at La Cholla, I was a bit overwhelmed. It is a HUGE community that is divided into sections – it took me a couple visits to get used to the layout, but when I did and I was no longer focused on not getting lost – I was finally able to focus on just how truly amazing the community is. The Fountains is broken in to sections: 1. Memory Care: The Gardens 2. Assisted Living: The Inn 3. Independent Living: The Town Square and Casitas The Memory Care section known as The Gardens, offers both private and shared suites ranging between 300-400 sq. ft. There are socialization areas such as the dining room, activity room, fitness/wellness room, etc. The memory care area is very secure, nestled in an area next to the assisted living area. The memory care facility is filled with sounds, visual aids, tastes, smells, etc. of things that stimulate the senses and help revive the memories of the residents. Music is almost always playing in some part of the facility and there are frequent activities that are geared toward enhancing and improving memories. The days are filled with activities and events which are therapeutic for residents with memory care disorders. Next, there is the Assisted Living section, known as The Inn. They offer assisted living apartments which range from studio to 1 bedroom floorplans – all are under 500 sq. ft. but they are all well laid-out and cozy. The facility is open, spacious, and very welcoming. There are open, comfortable, and inviting areas that encourage socialization. The activity calendar is always packed full of fun events, activities, and field trips that keep the residents busy and fulfilled. There are many walking paths and areas for outdoor enjoyment. Finally, the independent living facility is known as The Town Center. The apartments range between 400-1500 sq. ft. and include 1 bdrm/1 bdrm + den and 2 bdrm/2bth floorplans. The facility offers a café/dining area, common areas, activity/arts and craft rooms, fitness areas, and more. Casitas are also available to the independent living residents and border the entire community. The casitas are obviously larger, including 1 bdrm + den and 2 bdrm/2 bth casitas ranging between 900-1600 sq. ft. The casitas all have car ports and nice patios/porches with extra storage space which is quite large. The casitas surround a main club house which offers the residents a fun, spacious, and activity-filled area to gather and socialize. The Fountains at La Cholla offers residents the opportunity for a fun, relaxing, and convenient lifestyle. It is more resort-type living than senior living – the services and amenities offered are endless and they work hard to encourage and promote a healthy, active, and fulfilled lifestyle. Whether indoors or outdoors, there is always something for the residents to enjoy. The community offers nice clubhouses, a beautiful pool, putting green, a fitness center, a computer lab, a library, a salon/spa, they even have a dance hall! The community also offers a guest suite that can be reserved for family members visiting from out of town – this is a rare and welcome perk! The dining service at The Fountains is also worth celebrating. The dining team offer services that are unique and convenient. The menu options are plentiful - something for every taste and food presentation is beautiful and creative. Truly, fine-dining at The Fountains. The Memory Care area also offers the residents a pantry program that offers them storage space for their favorite foods/snacks that has shown to be therapeutic in stimulating memories and senses. The community also offers educational opportunities - The Fountains is a Watermark community, so the residents are offered the Watermark University – which is something I LOVE! The residents are able to fill their time taking fun and interesting Watermark University Classes – there is usually a course list available for the residents to choose to participate in and the classes are very hands on – the classes can be anything from tai chi/fitness classes to cooking classes to arts/crafts classes to gardening classes to computer classes to learning about a foreign culture/foreign language classes and so on. The Fountains at La Cholla is AMAZING! So much to do, so much to see, so many friends to make – In choosing The Fountains, you will have found your loved one a wonderful home.
