The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay is at a beautiful location on the Intracoastal Waterway. The facility is very clean, welcoming, and nicely-decorated with the furnishings in excellent condition. The staff is very helpful; I have no complaints. The well-apppointed dining room has one section that overlooks the water and pool. My stepmother lives in the independent section on the fourth floor, and she has an studio apartment with a microwave and refrigerator. Stoves are available if requested. The apartment has high ceilings, two spacious closets, a nook for her king-sized bed, a sitting area, and a small dining area, which she uses for her desk. The small but roomy-enough bathroom has a tub with shower, toilet, sink and ample storage cabinets. She's able to have cleaning come in once a week, which is part of what she pays for....as well as bedding and towels laundered. The room has huge windows, and from where she is, she can see a little bit of the water. Certain rooms have stunning views of the water because the building is 21 stories high. There is a monthly calendar of activities, everyday with at least five or more activities, whether it's bingo, chair yoga, outings to restaurants or stores, trips to special places like museums, programs of live music, learning classes, and craft classes. The movie theater show a film twice a day. Last year, when Hurricane Irma threatened, the staff managed to evacuate all the people to a safe place, which was wonderful. I was very impressed with that...since I was out of town and did not have to worry. This is a safe, well-run place, which I highly recommend.

The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay is in a beautiful location and you can see the Intracoastal Waterway. It's very nice, clean, and nicely-decorated. It seems like it's in excellent condition. The staff is very helpful and I have no complaints. You enter into a nice lobby with a front desk where you sign in. They have a nice dining room, and in one section you can overlook the water. My stepmother is on the fourth floor and she has an efficiency apartment with a microwave and refrigerator. It has three spacious closets, a place for her king-sized bed, a sitting area, and a little area where she can have a table for eating. The bathroom is nice and she's able to have cleaning come in once a week which is part of what she pays for. She also has big windows and from where she is, she can see a little bit of the water. In certain rooms, you have a gorgeous view of the water because it's 21 stories. They have a monthly calendar of activities and every day they have maybe five activities, whether it's bingo, chair yoga, outings to grocery store, or trips to special places like museums, programs where somebody comes in and plays music, learning classes, and craft classes. They also have a movie theater where they show movies twice a day. My stepmother is in the independent section. Last year, when we had that bad hurricane, they managed to evacuate all the people to a safe place, which was wonderful. I was very impressed with that.

I Visited This Facility

The Fountains had everything that I like, and the people were very nice. The only drawback was the rooms were expensive and the ones that we could afford were very small. They had all the games that we liked to play, and there's also a swimming pool. Their restaurant was very nice, and the meals were very good. You can even fish since it's right off the pier.

My mom seems very happy at The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay. She's enjoying the food. It's a larger property, so there's more people and a lot of activities. She's really enjoying the movies, playing Bingo and going out in groups to lunch or dinner. The staff is very good so far. The dining area is very nice, and there's a nice pool with a dock on the water.
