Villa Fontana has very friendly staff. They have excellent executives willing to help with any problems that you may have. Very clean facility. My mom is very happy here! The primary reason we picked Villa Fontana was because of the studio rooms, they are HUGE compared to all of the other facilities that we looked into initially. I would absolutely recommend this facility to anyone who is looking.

I recommend them
This facility is pretty nice. The Memory Care unit is separate and has a nice atmosphere. It's always very clean, they stay on top of cleanliness here (cleaning up spills, etc). Communication with the family is great. They have a good variety of activities. Overall, it's a really nice and clean place with friendly staff. I have and will continue to recommend them to friends and family.

Tour of Villa Fontana
I toured Villa Fontana Retirement and I thought it was a generally nice place. It was close to me, so I found that appealing. The memory care unit seemed to have a lot of people who were in a vegetative state, in wheel chairs. If my loved one were to move in, they would likely require two people per room; and I knew that wouldn't have worked for my mom. They had single rooms, but it didn't look like that'd be available anytime soon.

My tour review
This was not the type of environment that I was looking for my loved one. It was not as fresh and new like the type of environment I wanted for my love one.

Hidden Gem
The community is really good for my loved one. The place seems to be well run. This is an older community, but it works for my loved one. The meals are okay. The community served a ham sandwich and this can be hard for the residents that have a hard time with chewing food. The rooms are spacious for the residents.

Great facility
What stuck out to us most about Villa Fontana was the fact that it is smaller, there is only 80 residents total. It is also a family owned facility. I would tell others looking to take a tour and meet the staff, they have been very good with communicating about what is going on. It is a nice facility to have a loved one in and I would recommend them to others.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the California regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about California regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Villa Fontana Retirement Community

Villa Fontana Retirement Community offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Villa Fontana Retirement Community 8.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
