Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Fort Myers, FL
Pondella Serenity Court in Cape Coral, FL
4.5

It may not the fancy-shamancy assisted living that has 200 rooms in one building with very poor care. Pondella Serenity Court ([removed]) staff takes this extremely personal with the 10 to 13 room accommodations that it provides. It's a very nuclear assisted living family...no one is left behind or forgotten. The staff is not there for a living.... they are there because their calling pointed them to Pondella Serenity Court. One-on-one interaction is pinnacle. We strive not to be the most popular or well known in the industry, but we strive to view life as its the most important entity or subject on earth. Every life on earth is more that a blessing.

I am happy with this community. The best community we have found. The staff are very good with there care . The rooms are alittle small. We like this home atmosphere. They have activities for her, but she does have someone to come and keep her company. I would recommend this community for the outstanding care and value that is received here.

They're amazing. My mom is so happy. They've been wonderful and have done everything to make her feel like they value her as person. Just because she has memory issues, they don't treat her lesser a person. They care for everyone's value of life, and I really really like that. They're also very good about making sure that she's not overmedicated, and that she's just happy in general. It's all about her being happy, and you can see that when you go to visit. My kids even notice that grandma is so happy.
