What brought Judy Fenton to Fountainview? In her words, “A confluence of events.” Her friends were downsizing. She had shoulder surgery last year and saw the burden it put on her children to care for her. Then, after her husband passed away, her financial planner recommended community living as a way to stay active and engaged.
The mother of three and grandmother of 11 is active, indeed. She conducts her synagogue choir, sings in the Los Angeles Zimriyah Chorale, takes classes at the University of California Irvine, belongs to a book club, volunteers for the Alzheimer’s Association and is a member of the Chesed Committee at her synagogue.
“When I first looked at Fountainview, it seemed perfect for me,” she says. “It’s close to my family, it’s got opportunities for social involvement and, at the same time, complete privacy in my own home.” Judy is excited about her future here, loves the peace of mind that comes with a CCRC, and looks forward to making new friends.
