"Worst It's Ever Been"
The title is a quote from the Director of Assisted Living. This place has suffered a significant decline in the quality of service since my Dad moved in 5 years ago. The worst parts include the emergency call system not working (a constant problem over the past 5 years, that persists to this day) over worked poorly trained staff, persistent problems and mistakes with medications management, and worst of all is the management simply ignoring, lying or deflecting blame for these and other problems. Staff in all units seem very disgruntled with their management. Costs increase yearly like clockwork at a rate well over 3%, yet the number of staff declined starting before the Covid pandemic and has remained consistently lower than 5 years ago. So less staff, more burned out staff, more poorly trained staff who don't stay, all resulting in a lower quality of care while the price steadily increases. Their own Nursing Care staff advised against moving Dad in there. Avoid this place!

Hi, so sorry to hear about your experience, since we don't know what part of our community you had experience with-- We are unable to make the proper accommodations. It is our goal to provide a 5-Star community so the more information we have to make improvements, the better! Even though your review is anonymous, we hope you'll reach out to help us make our community GREAT for others. Call our marketing director at [removed] to update us.

Best community we looked at
I can’t say enough fantastic things about this place. My sister fractured her hip and after the hospital she stayed at Mountains vista for rehab... it’s such a beautiful place and well maintained! Currently, our mom is living in the assisted living community where she’s more social and the food is amazing (we eat with her every week). We have so much peace of mind knowing she’s well cared for... Thanks to Mountain Vista!

Great care for our loved-one
My father is currently living at Mountain Vistafor 2.5 years after a stay in rehab. This place was the cleanest and friendliest community we visited. We were also relieved to know that they can care for him even if his care needs change. When you see this place you’ll be just as impressed. So thankful we found Mountain Vista!

The best care in a beautiful community
We toured many assisted living communities, this one stole our hearts. The clean and inviting building offered indoor and outdoor spaces and the dining room was spacious. We are really lucky to have found Mountain Vista for my mother who needed more help. The staff has been here for a long time and the residents are very friendly and inviting.
