Atria Sarasota is pretty large. They take care of all my mother's needs. The food seems pretty good and adequate and they try hard to make it tasty. She has cleaning once a week, but the cleaning is not too good. We have to get an outside cleaner in, every once in a while to give it thorough cleaning, but they keep it as clean as they can. I've looked at a lot of different places for my mother and we found that Atria had the best to offer her. The nurses are very good, very attentive to her needs and look after her. The facilities are a bit dated, and they don't refurnish things very often. Her room can use some repairs.
I visited this facility
We liked Atria Sarasota very much. We could have a waterfront villa with a full kitchen and I can take my cat. It had two bedrooms, two baths, and was small but adequate. They had a whole page full of activities every day. They play Jeopardy, bridge, go on trips almost every day either shopping or to a restaurant, and exercise. They have a director of activities that keeps everybody including herself busy. There's a library, a movie room, a pool, get-togethers once a week, and they serve wine once in a while. The staff during the tour was wonderful and very helpful.
I Visited This Community
Brookdale Sarasota Central was the first place that we visited. Their food was very good. The rooms seemed small, but I think we were looking at smaller places as we were just starting out. The person who accommodated us was very nice and gracious. We went back the next day and had lunch with her. She was able to answer a lot of questions for us. The dining area looked fine, and they had waiters to wait on you. They were very respectful and had different activities, like games and outings. They also had a TV room and library. The place looked welcoming, bright, and cheery.
