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.

Atria Hillsdale seemed nice. The guy who was trying to get my dad in there was very attentive. When I walked in the facility, it was clean and nice. They had two big dining areas. I liked them enough to take my dad there.
