  • Would not recommend this place

    Management and employees come and go very quickly. CNA's are not taught proper care for the elderly in the memory care (lockdown unit). Fights have been wittnessed between residents and CNA's and falls have been wittnessed. Many violations have been wittnessed also. The food at this place was decent until they switched management to Pegasus....now food is not very healthy at all. Mostly carbs which is not good for diabetics or people with heart problems. When served food it lukewarm and takes about an hour to get. No hair nets are worn by the staff in the kitchen leading to hair in the food. Unfortunately people do not look happy here and do not get the PT or OT ftherapy that is need to build muscle and range of motion.

  • Violations of State Requirements and Poorly Run

    We setup Mom to be in a respite stay post surgery for hip surgery after a fall. She had already come down with Dementia, and she was needing extra care without being home where there were too many obstacles to walk around. The initial month was OK, but then things were declining rapidly. Since June, there have been incidences where the entire kitchen and wait staff have quit. They have many times asked for medical staff to wait tables. This causes a huge turnover in the qualified health care staff available to help patients, and they resign all the time. Food was once plentiful and tasty. Now the portions are so small, there is hardly enough caloric count to sustain someone. One afternoon, my wife and I were there to visit and stay for dinner. Dinner service starts at 5, and we arrived at 5:45pm. There were no staff cleaning tables, and no place to sit where there was clean dishes, glasses, and utensils. After 30 minutes, mom got up and went to the kitchen to yell at someone to get out here to serve dinner. And now it is Nov, and things are far more worse than that because they have lost the whole wait staff many times over and are on their 3rd chef in 6 months. In addition, there was a power outage and we found that the facility is in violation of State statute by not having any backup power generators as required by law. Our private duty nurse was helping other residents who were in total pitch black darkness, and their oxygen generators and other medical equipment stopped working. Fountains has only 2 personnel on call at night, and they were nowhere to be found. They each have an entire building to cover. During this power outage, the locks securing the doors in the Memory Care wing automatically shut off and allowed the Alzheimers patients to freely leave. One patient left the facility, and walked to a neighboring church, climbed into the back seat of a car, and was transported to another neighboring town (Venice) by an unaware driver. She was eventually returned. So during any storm or hurricane, the power can shut off leaving residents in total darkness, without medical equipment that requires power, and unsecured buildings that will allow residents to freely leave and wander towards the adjacent interstate, the woods and swamp and canals behind, or into local neighborhoods. I would not recommend Fountains of Hope to anyone who truly has any love for their parents/spouses. I was lucky because I was providing a team of my own private duty nurses to be with mom 24/7 apart from the staff. They ended up cooking food for her and bringing it in. Don't waste your money here.
