  • Lack of Compassion

    The overall facility is very nice and offers a great apartment for Seniors looking for a retirement center. My mom moved in [date removed] and lived independent until her death in October. We were initially impressed with the facility, the activities, the offerings. The Fountains put a lot into marketing and making prospective residents feel very welcome. Unfortunately, after the move in period is over the residents become a number and are just a source of income to the management/owners. They profess to foster a caring community for our parents to live in, but the reality is the management lacks the compassion needed to continue to make residents & family feel like they are really important. When my mom passed away, we met with management and were told that they would set up a memorial for her so that other residents would know of her passing and would transport those that wanted to go to her funeral. We were also told a rep from The fountains would be at her funeral. Not only did none of these things happen but we never even received a sympathy card from the Fountains. While we were cleaning out moms apartment, Several of my moms friends stopped by and were visibly shaken by how the management treated them. They were so upset that they couldn’t come to her service.(The Fountains told them it was too far away) The reality is, if we had not been told by the Fountains that transportation would have been provided, we would have made sure her friends had a way to get to the service. Even a week after her death, there were some staff members that weren’t aware she had passed and we had to be the ones to inform them. Sadly, members of the management staff are severely lacking in compassion. The so called caring community they profess to have is only to get residents in the door and start paying for this facility. Sadly they left us with the impression that our loved ones are nothing more than an income source. Sadly this is the lasting impression I have of The Fountains and one that I feel strongly others are aware of.

  • We found the Fountains of West County to be everything we were looking for. All our questions were answered to our satisfaction. Our tour leader, [name removed], was pleasant and showed us everything we wanted to see. They made us feel important. we should acknowledge that this was the first facility we have visited. We plan some more visits to compare other places with the Fountains - who have set a high bar.

  • Family Owned Property

    This property is a gem my parents love it here. One of the rare features is that the property is family owned and you can tell that they take pride in the property. There is no smoking at all on the premises which is nice so that keeps the outside and inside clean and maintained. The apartment that my parents have is on the small side but they have plenty of space for both of them to be comfortable. There is so much to do my parents have joined a water aerobic swimming class and they love it. In fact, they allow residents families come over and swim which is wonderful. My parents love the food every day you order off the menu and there are always 2 entree choices. They have lovely table linen table clothes on the tables that are always nicely ironed and look neat The staff is always smiling and friendly you can tell they enjoy what they do and they like spending time with the residents.
