Great Facility, but pricey!
Right now...the facility is in a transition, so the quality of Aides is a hit or a miss. They do their job, but they are just learning the residents. Some of them are friendly. Some just do their job and that's it. The housekeeping is fine. They come once a week. I can't speak on the meals

Right now...the facility is in a transition, so the quality of Aides is a hit or a miss. They do their job, but they are just learning the residents. Some of them are friendly. Some just do their job and that's it. The housekeeping is fine. They come once a week. I can't speak on the meals because I don't eat there. My mother doesn't like some of the meals. As for a recommendation, if you can afford to pay out of pocket, definitely. It's very pricey. But it's clean and the staff is friendly.

It is joyful and a place in my stage of life where I would like to be
Atria Almaden is a very clean community and the house keeping ladies are just lovely - that is one of the things I love about Atria I have never seen anything messy or out of place. The staff members know all of our names which I cannot believe it - they are very courteous, nice, joyful and they always have a smile on their face - that is another things we love about Atria. The dining and meals are one of the most important things to us in this stage of our lives - there has never been a day that I have gone to the dining hall and something be bad. There service is just wonderful, the kitchen staff is perfect and they always greet us when we enter the dining hall. They are very patient with us when we order and always explain the menu to us and any other specials they may have. The activities are fantastic - there is almost everything you can think of, there is always something to do from exercise classes, movie nights, arts and crafts. It is like a cruise ship that you do not get off of.

Overall I am very happy here I am been here for quite sometime - but they have struggled with hiring a manager that stays consistently so something's are haphazard. [name removed] does a wonderful job in the kitchen - sometimes the meals come out cold but he is currently working on fixing that problem. Overall based on the experience I have had I would recommend Atria Almaden to other families .

Our Altria Almaden Tour Experience
We arrived at Altria Almaden at lunch time for a quickly arranged tour, which we appreciated, since we were to be in the area for a brief period. First off was lunch for me and my wife with [name removed] (sales counselor). Food selection was very broad and very high quality. Looking for Independent Living accommodations, the facility offered the two bedroom unit we had in mind. They offer every conceivable entertainment and activity to engage in during the day. The facilities are new. They are definitely a place to consider if you like high rise living.

Who's running this place
The director turnover is like a revolving door. The caregivers are understaffed during the 6A-2P Shift. Sometimes there's only 1 working for the entire facility.

Tour of Atria
I toured Atria Almaden, and it was very luxurious. They really appealed to the family members; but Atria gave me the impression that they would not take someone with my moms level of need. I later found out that if a person even needs oxygen, they couldn't be there. They were not geared to handle or accommodate advanced medical needs. The community was very fancy-schmancy; but not a good fit for us.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Almaden

Almaden offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Almaden 7.9 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.
