I think Atria Park of Lafayette was very nice and positive. Mom and Dad have not made a decision, but it was a good place with very nice rooms and amenities. The staff was very friendly and I like them. I didn’t notice anything that needs improvement. The food was good.
I have a friend who lives in Atria Burlingame. She went there about four to five years ago, and she’s fairly happy. She has a small room that is adequate for her use and has its own bathroom, is well lighted which she likes, and it’s very near the nurse’s station. She’s usually out of the room all day until the evening. One time when I was there, they were doing some word games, and it was interesting. The activity therapist is quite entertaining and very engaging. I did stay a couple of times to eat with her, and the portions were fairly large for older people. They don’t have a lot of parking because it is in a small area so you do street parking. My friend doesn’t walk very far, so I’d go to the garage to pick her up, and sometimes it’s hard because there’s not a lot of space or handicap parking nearby. It’s in a nice area by the park, so it’s breezy and windy, even though it’s noisy because it’s by the train. The atmosphere is good. You can walk to the stores and to the park, where there are always children playing in the summer.
Summerhill Villa is all good. My one complaint I have about it that they will not do my mother's laundry unless she pays another $200, but other than that, it's a great place. Their common area is huge and beautiful. They have a huge beautiful courtyard with 100-year-old oaks in the back that are enormous with bunnies and squirrels and a walkway all around it. The rooms aren't huge, but their bedroom is a little big bigger than bedroom size with a nice roomy bathroom. They have fantastic activities, like bingo, movies, outings, games, art, and happy hour. The staff is awesome.
Summerhill and everybody there was nice but expensive. A staff member introduced me to all of the people. They were having a concert that afternoon, and some of them had personal help which was nice. It was highly overgrown with lots of trees and shrubs outside, but it keeps it cool, and you can go outside. We didn’t eat, but the dining room was nice.
My brother is in Atria Covina. I love it. The food and people are fantastic. The rooms are great. The residents are very active and play games all day long and go on scenic drives to the casino and grocery store. They have memory games, electronic games, sing-a-longs, and today they have a Cinco de Mayo party. The security is very good. They lock the doors at 8:00. Everybody has to sign in and sign out. They know you, and if they do not know somebody, they question them. They have very nice amenities.
My father-in-law is in Atria Hillsdale. It’s not overly large and seems to have the right amount of friendly staff to the right amount of people. There isn't much to the grounds, but my father-in-law has to be in a lockdown facility. The food is pretty good. The neighborhood is fine. The community is right off the freeway, and you have the Kaiser right there.
Atria Palm Desert seemed a little more modern, very clean, and inviting. The employees were very friendly. The woman who gave us the tour as we were walking through the rooms and grounds knew a lot of the people that lived there, which impressed me. We had a sample of a bakery item, which was very good. They had a whole month of activities mapped out. They had a movie room, dancing, exercise, and once a week or every other week they take the residents around to certain areas if they want to go somewhere. It was very nice. I was impressed, but it was out of our price budget. They seemed to be very accommodating. If we could afford it, we would have probably gone to that place.
Atria Collwood was a lovely place with a lovely staff. They picked my mom up to her van. The only problem was her inability to transfer. There was beautiful, peaceful garden. We would have to have a physical therapist come there, and they didn’t have facilities that the other facility was saw offers. The staff was wonderful. In fact, the nurse came and evaluated my mom several times, trying to see what modification they could make, but it was not a good fit.
Summerhill Villa was lovely and seemed like they had very nice accommodations, but it was pricey. The building was very clean and kept in good shape. The few residents that I saw seemed very happy. They did say they have restaurant style dining.
We visited Summerhill Villa. The whole visit was great, and I liked the place. This would be our first choice. The amenities were perfect. It had a homey atmosphere, and their price was reasonable. The studio that she would be living in was spectacular.
Our visit to Atria was fine. The facilities looked beautiful, and the lunch we had was delicious. However, husband was not interested in that type of situation, and it was so expensive, but it were really nice. In fact, I'm attending a caregiver’s class there every week. I thought it was lovely.
I went over to Atria, and they didn’t have anything available for me. I wasn’t pleased because it was too small for me, and I felt very confined. The staff was excellent, very efficient, and tried to help as much as possible. The atmosphere was very nice, very friendly, and very good. They had an ice cream parlor open on Tuesdays and Sundays and a hair salon.
Atria Hillsdale was not a real good place for my mother because she is visually impaired and the hallways were not very bright. She is also using a walker and a wheelchair and will not be able to navigate herself around that place. It would be a fine facility for someone who is not as impaired as my mom. The dining area looked pretty nice and looked out into a courtyard and had a pleasant atmosphere for eating, more like a restaurant. The gentleman who met us was the director, and he had a good, positive attitude about helping people. He wasn't pushy and was informative, helpful, and courteous.
Atria Park was beautiful. It looked like a resort, and I wanted to move in. The staff was friendly and awesome. The residents I saw were leaving to go places, and a couple were in wheelchairs and seemed fine. Everybody seemed upbeat and really happy. They gave me a gift pack to give to my mom, and she loved it.
When we went to visit Atria Hillsdale, the place was livelier compared to the other place we’ve been to. When we got there, they were doing activities. It felt like it was a more social place. The residents were ambulatory. It's not posh and a little dated, but it’s still very nice. The director was very nice to us.
This is a very warm and family-like facility. When I entered this facility, I was greeted by a resident who was friendly and energetic. I was also later greeted by the person at the front lobby. The staff were friendly and professional; however, a couple of the workers appeared to be very occupied during my visit. There were two workers who did not greet me, but I did notice that these workers were assisting the residents, and to me, that was most important.
The food here is very good and offers a lot of variety. This is not the food you would expect at any facility. The choices include fresh vegetables and desserts. Still, I did find that the chicken that I had during my lunch visit with a friend was not very seasoned. Nevertheless, the residents seemed to enjoy mealtime, and all of the food was served fairly hot and in a clean surrounding.
The best part about this facility is friendship. The residents here are awesome, and they stay busy ranging from games to art. This facility will keep your senior involved and feeling a part of a family.
Atria Park of Lafayette is a nice, somewhat newer community, in a very quiet area, yet very convenient to local shopping and dining, that has 103 apartments, with a 22 person memory care community. They offer all day dining, a movie theatre with daily movies, a massage room, a full service salon and on-site religious services, as well as excursions to local churches for worship. They offer a hydro spa tub for residents to take a relaxing bath, a billards/table tennis room, game room, and Friday happy hour. Each apartment in the independent/assisted living area is equipped with a kitchenette with a microwave, sink and refrigerator/freezer. Their private dining room for residents and their families has a full kitchen, where residents and their families can make favorite family recipes, or any other cooking adventures they want to partake in. Atria Park of Lafayette is an enhanced care community, which offers additional residents' needs that many others do not offer. They are currently offering a special until the end of September that would not have a rent increase until 2017. This is the first community I have visited that has offered this. This is a lovely community and I highly recommend it!
Atria Valley View, a community of independent and assisted living, is tucked away in south Walnut Creek in a very quiet area. There are 126 apartments, that have either a shared patio or balcony with an adjoining apartment. They have a nice movie theatre, full service salon and massage room, fitness center, as well as a sundries store, where residents can buy anything from shampoo to snacks. When a new resident moves in, they throw a party to welcome them to the community, which is very nice and welcoming. They also have a WiFi lounge, are pet friendly (no fee), and have a Friday happy hour, as well as the option of beer or wine with dinner. They also cover many of the costs of their outside excursions--the first this reviewer has seen. In addition, right next door is a rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility, should a resident need. The only drawback is that they do not offer any memory care services. This is a wonderful facility that I would highly recommend!
Review by Cheryl P. - Penrose Senior Care Auditors®
Located in a quaint residential neighborhood, Atria Willow Glen has the feel of an apartment community. Residential buildings are scattered across several beautiful, well-manicured acres with lawns, willow trees, a lovely Koi pond and swimming pool. While the community is several years old, it has been well taken care of and the apartments have gradually been renovated to feel fresh and modern. The apartments are a little larger than average and all have balconies or patios. The dining room is large and bright and looks out over a Koi pond and pool. I arrived right after lunch and the dining room was still buzzing with conversation. Many diners had moved to the pool deck under the shade of umbrellas. Atria Willow Glen has a great, independent air about it. The staff were all very attentive to the residents but without seeming to detract from their independence. This community would be very attractive for someone who enjoys gardening or the outdoors and a friendly atmosphere.
There’s much to love at Atria North Escondido. This facility has impressive outdoor spaces including a rooftop terrace that overlooks the rest of the property. The property of Atria North Escondido is well landscaped and scenic. There are also a few outdoor sitting areas on property that are shaded, but there are only a few and no very many. One of the sitting areas had a nice fountain where birds were gathering. Atria North Escondido also offers amenities such as a library and activities that include scenic drives around the area. I think Atria North Escondido has staff that are well trained and professional. While I was there they seemed to be constantly busy accommodating residents.
Atria Encinitas has nice outdoor sitting areas and plenty of mature trees on property that provide good shade. This facility also has an ‘Anytime Café’ where residents can come enjoy a snack in between meals. There are a few walking areas on property but nothing very huge. Atria Encinitas is pretty clean inside but there are rooms for improvements. The amenities here are good as well and there’s plenty of variety in the nature of activities.
Atria Walnut Creek is nice facility, which is located about 1/4 mile from John Muir Hospital, a leading medical provider in the area. It is also extremely close to multiple doctors' offices, which makes its location ideal when needing medical care. Atria has a total of 155 units, 34 of which are memory care units. There are several housing unit sizes to choose from, from studio apartments to one bedroom units. There is a beauty salon on site that offers hair and nail care. Atria also offers group exercise classes and has a new, but small, fitness center on site. They also have a 21 seat movie "theatre" that offers nightly movies and fresh popcorn! For excursions and transportation needs, Atria has a small bus, as well as a town car for residents' travel needs. Their dining room is open daily from 7 am to 7 pm, which is great, as it does not restrict residents to limited hours in which to enjoy meals. They also have a bistro/café for other dining options, free to residents, and at a reasonable cost to residents' visitors. Atria is expanding and renovating, and hopes to provide a wine bar and free WiFi soon to their residents. In the meantime, residents can use free WiFi in certain common areas, or pay for it themselves for use in their room. Cats and dogs are permitted, although the sales representative was not sure if there were costs involved if a resident wanted to bring a pet. Lastly, Atria is within 2 miles of both Target and high end shopping and dining in downtown Walnut Creek, making its location very desirable.
This community is built into a beautiful tree covered hillside in Walnut Creek just a few minutes from John Muir Outpatient Center. The community was recently remodeled to resemble a Mission style lodge so it looks like a vacation resort as you pull into the driveway. There can be a challenge to find a parking place, so be prepared to park and walk a good distance if you are visiting. This community offers so many wonderful activities to keep their residents healthy and happy including outdoor dining space, an outdoor fireplace, walking paths, and a large movie theater just to name a few. The staff are experienced and professional and really go out of there way to make the residents feel a home. While I was there, some of the residents were on their way out to an excursion which they were excited about and the staff was very helpful in loading them on the shuttle. I had lunch while I was there and the food was excellent with many tasty options available. The Marketing staff were very helpful and informative and called me after my visit to make sure that I had all of my questions answered.
