Alfred DeWalt - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
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.

Dark and dingy, felt dirty. The whole place smelled. Loud noise in dining room. Seemed unkempt.
