Atria is a wonderful place, everyone was so friendly and very helpful. The place is immaculate and she received great care here. I would highly recommend it to others looking.
After looking at a few residences for my father, I knew immediately that Atria Center City was the right place for him. The interior is very upscale and modern, like a boutique hotel, and my dad’s apartment was cheerful and bright. But most important was the sense of community amongst the staff and residents. All the staff knew the residents by name and cared about them personally. They went beyond just doing their job.The other residents were friendly too - and also fascinating. I enjoyed hanging out with my dad and his friends at meals and happy hour. The food was excellent, and my father enjoyed a full range of activities and culture, including musicians from the Philadelphia Orchestra, movies, and art gallery openings in house.
If you have a loved one that only has minimal needs and some independence it's ok, If they need more not so much. They are reluctant to problem solve and met particular patient needs. I would only recommend it if is minimal care needed.
I believe this community provided a great space for my loved one. The community seems to always and wants to be there. I feel that going to Atria was a great decision. Everyone seems very friendly and competent at the job.
Atria Engagement Staff recently enabled my centenarian father to virtually attend and participate in his college homecoming. Atria staff handled all of the computer needs and set-up beautifully. My father had a wonderful couple of weeks getting prepared for the homecoming and he was a big hit with his fraternity brothers when he was asked to say a few words during a Zoom session. Thank you for making this all possible, Atria!
I have been a resident for four years. Atria Center City (Philadelphia) has established a great sense of community. Dining is outstanding as well as housekeeping, maintenance, administrative staff and all departments but the greatest asset is the culture that they have created.
Staff, Management, and aides provide a clean, friendly and hospitable atmosphere. Responsiveness and a genuine sense of client service abound. Locale provides ample opportunity for a variety of splendid visages and all suggestions, comments and, yes, complaints (after all we are seniors) are addressed promptly. A facility which treats with dignity and respect.
As an 80 something widower wallowing in grief and sorrow, having lost my wife of 57 years a few months before, I was caught in a typhoon of loneliness and self pity. My daughter, a Philadelphian suggested Atria. Having the usual images of an “old folks home”; I nonetheless agreed to a tour and admission conference. Almost at once I picked up on the positive vibes of the talented staff, and subsequent to moving in, my fears were fully allayed, Staff, food, services, cleanliness and entertainment factors border on excellence. Literally, every caregiver and aide, staff and associates are personable and gracious in all respects. I give them a 9.9 (must retain my rating for the one and only Bo Derek),
We chose this community because of the location, it is close to my home. The room sizes are great, very generous. The food is really good, they run it like a restaurant where you have a menu and you are able to order whatever you want. My favorite part about this community would be the staff members. One place they fall short it their communication. There is a lot of room for improvement. I would recommend this community. It is expensive, but for those who can afford it it is lovely.
We chose Atria Center City because it was close to my brother. My mother is in a one room apartment with a bathroom, it is adequate size. My mom is not a big fan of the food. I would want people to know who are looking into Atria to read the contract carefully and understand what the expenses are really going to be. I would recommend this facility depending on your financial status and if you are mobile.
My parents really liked the vibe of this place but turns out they're not ready to move yet. Convenient for my brother and I to visit.
Used to be so much better. The irony is that they are doing all this construction (and a mess at that) to include a memory care unit and yet they don't have the basics down. This review from yelp really sums it up. [removed]
They need more staff.the housekeepers don't clean well.the laundry rooms are horrible.the transportation always have an excuse.and now she's complaining about the food.the construction is horrible can't rest can't even eat lunch in peace.my relative been here 4 months and is ready to leave

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback – it helps us to constantly improve our services. I’m sad to hear that your experience is not meeting your expectations and I’d like to help if I can. Would you care to email me directly at [removed]? From there, I can gain a better understanding of your situation and how best to address it. In the meantime, I encourage you to attend our monthly Food For Thought meeting where you can speak with the chef directly about your dining preferences.
Hello, My mom has been living at the Atria for about 2 years. For the most part, the services they have provided her have been fair. Basic services such as; daily meals, emergency support and cleaning services are well covered. However, a basic service which has been a struggle for the past year, while paying rent of nearly 5k/month, has been hot water. My mom's apartment has not had consistent hot water for nearly 1 year. The Atria has attempted to resolve the issue based on constant pestering from my mom and other supportive relatives, but have failed to provide consistent hot water for nearly 1 year. Hot water is a basic service people paying rent are entitled to, and ample time has been provided to resolve this issue. Thanks. [Removed]

Hi, Nathan. Thank you for being a part of the Atria family and for taking the time to reach out. I'd like to learn a little more so I can help. Would you mind emailing me directly at [removed]?
Everything is fine and I am happy with the care my mom receives. I picked them because they are close to me it is very convenient for me. My mom she likes everything and they do a lot of activities. They have current events, work out sessions, walking and show or movies in the evening.
Management does not have a handle on what aides do.

Thanks for reaching out. Rest assured that all of our employees, especially in leadership roles, are required to complete extensive training based on their job functions and state requirements. If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to connect with our Executive Director, who would be glad to address them directly.
My experience with Atria center city is that the pricing information given me when I signed up was deceptive in that costs that were supposed to be included in the rent (for example, export services for my Mom who is in a wheel chair) were supposed to be included in the rent and not factored into the "personal services" that were a separate charge. Although eventually her personal service charges were reduced, it was because of my prodding. I think if Mom did not have an advocate that she would just continue to be charged much more than was represented to me when I first signed the lease. Also the aides are often very slow in responding to requests for transport or other assistance.

Thanks for reaching out to us with your concerns. I'm glad to know that you were able to resolve the service charge with the community. If you'd like to tell me more about how we can continue to improve our service, please send me an email [removed].
Our experience with Atria has been a very positive one, so far! The staff here is friendly, professional, and everyone from the management to the maintenance staff has been friendly and eager to help. They've been very reliable when it comes to communication, they always address any questions or concerns I've had quickly, and they're always clear about when they need additional input from me. The facility itself is clean and well kept, and they do a great job looking after the people who live here.
Essentially positive experience as newcomer but: There was a lack of information about many of the where's and whys of atrial operation. I had to learn too many things such as putting out my laundry, etc from other renters. A brochure would have been so helpful and comforting. Also waiting a half hour or more to be just waited on in the dining room is not cool. I think we deserve better. On the plus side, the staff are all friendly and helpful as are the people living here. In summary, generally ok assessment but can we'll stand improvement.

Hi, Leslie. Thanks for being a part of our community and for your feedback. Our typical onboarding efforts seem to have fallen short and I apologize. Please feel free to share more with me at [removed].
Staff all friendly and accommodating. Dining room is high spot compares with top restaurants in the city. Som disappointment when I first took my apartment. Both the sink and toilet in bathroom were dysfunctional. Seems to me the working facilities of an apartment should be checked out BEFORE the renter arrives. I think the service people should be asked what questions are mostly asked by the renters and then make a compendium of it. Would make life easier for both service people and new renters
