With Gratefullness

We have been extremely impressed with the level of care Mom has received. Not only have the staff taken care of basic needs but they go above and beyond with interest, compassion, helpfulness all with a positive attitude. For special family occasions the staff always has mom dressed well and she is prepared when we arrive. The staff interact with Mom while we are there and this gives us a sense of comfort. Mom seems very content and this reassures us that she is in the right place.

Wonderful community!

The care provided in Life Guidance is absolutely wonderful! The staff are very capable and caring. They keep the residents happy and engaged. You are welcome to visit anytime. The garden area is lovely and we have spent many pleasant afternoons having lunch there. Moving your loved one to memory care (Life Guidance) can be a hard decision. Our Mom is quite content living at Atria El Camino Gardens. Know that your loved one is in good hands there.

Saved My Mom

This review is for the Atria El Camino on Garfield. It was such a difficult decision to move my Mother from her home and frankly my siblings and I didn’t agree or know what was best but she was alone and declining rapidly. But after spending the holidays with Mom at this beautiful community we are all so thankful for the staff, her friends, the care, food, and lovely environment. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Highly recommend this place!

I cannot be more pleased with Atria El Camino Gardens. The staff is caring, and patient. The food is really good, with so many choices. I've eaten in the dining room, with my parents (residents), several times, so personal experience! There are so many activities, and so many forms of entertainment. The staff welcomes family and friends from the "outside" with a smile. My mother is in assisted living, my father is in memory care (Life Guidance). Both are thriving and happy. My parents moved in THE DAY the world shut down from COVID. I truly believe they would not be here without the wonderful staff and the precautions everyone took to keep the residents safe. I recommend Atria El Camino Gardens to any of my friends who are searching for a good, safe place for their family members. I would choose this place again.

Clean, Friendly, and Welcoming Life Guidance (Memory Care) Program

We had to move my mom in when the facility she was at was unable to accommodate her rising memory care needs. She needed a good amount of attention and it seemed to be getting worse by the day. It was a stressful time and I cannot say enough good things about the Atria staff, not only those that assisted myself and my mom in getting onboarded into a room, but also those that continue to care for her day after day. I have had universally positive experiences with Life Guidance Director [name removed] and her team. They are compassionate and direct with both their residents and their residents' family. I have had numerous experiences with them going above and beyond to not only accommodate my mom's needs, but also observing and sharing useful information about everything from medical to clothing needs. It is always difficult having a loved one begin to suffer cognitive issues, but the team at Life Guidance make sure that my mother has both a good quality of life and a voice to communicate.

A good fit

We chose Atria El Camino Gardens because the facility is beautiful. There are lots of places for residents to walk around and go sit outdoors. They have a nice activities room and library. They have nice dining room and a grill as well where you can get some food afterhours. The layout is very nice, we liked that it is all on one level and there are lots of things to do. I would recommend them to others looking and already have.

Don't bother

I would share with others that Atria El Camino Gardens is a nice place, but the staff isn't very attentive. The staff there don't know how to get back with people if they call with an issue. I've had to call the building director four times for her to call back. Same with the nurse, who never called me back. I've left message after message and there's nothing in return. They are terrible when it comes to getting back to someone. If you have a concern and have left messages, they wont get back to you.

I'm really happy here

I'm really happy here, I have lots of friends, the food is really good and don't have a complaint. Getting older isn't easy but when you're here you feel better because there's lot to do all the time. My apartment is nice they keep things clean all the time and love playing bridge several times a week and playing corn hole and being with others. Couldn't ask for a better place to live, I'm not lonely anymore either.

Happiest mom has been in a while

Mom really likes it here. She enjoys the activities that they have provided, that has been her favorite part. They include the residents in suggestions for change and they have meetings that they will come up and get her for so we like that aspect. Unfortunately covid hit the building again so they are not doing activities and they are delivering meals at the moment. Overall the facility is very nice and welcoming and we would recommend Atria El Camino Gardens to others.

Atria El Camino Gardens was like a resort. They had three restaurants. The rooms were nice. I would feel like I was on vacation all the time. They people were very nice and personable. But the environment just wasn’t the right fit for our family member.

Tour of Atria

Atria was one of our top runners. It looks like an older facility from the outside, but when you walk in it is all re-done and beautiful. The staff members were very accommodating with trying to find a room that would work for him and his needs. After interacting with the residents here we could see him fitting in well. The only reason we did not choose them was because they did not offer diabetic care.

Friendly Environment

It is an average community. The staff is friendly, and the residents are getting the required care. The community itself is clean; however, my loved one's room could be cleaned more. It seems like the housekeeping could be improved. The community does seemed to be understaffed.

Loving Care

This was a good place for your loved one. We weren't happy at the end due to the doctor not being able to diagnose our loved one with COVID. The staff didn't test my loved one for COVID. The staff would call us if they needed anything. The food was excellent, we were able to join our loved one to eat meals. This was prior to COVID. The room was spacious.
