Highly recommend

We chose Atria Merrimack Place because of the overall appearance of the facility and they seemed to offer more and have more flexibility as well. There are difficulties dealing with covid outbreaks, so at times that makes things hard but they have done a really good job with it. The staff have all been super helpful and friendly. I would tell others to make a personal connection with the people in charge and it will be easier to get what you are looking for.

Looking Good for My 94 Year Old Loved One's Next Chapter

It is a lovely place, but it is just outrageously expensive

It is ridiculously expensive for the amount of money we spend a month. For the cost they should provide toiletries for the residents, they charge for absolutely everything short of wiping someones nose. Taking some one down to the dining hall in a wheel chair qualifies for a high level of care with a price increase. They also raised the monthly rates because of covid protocols.

Staff was amazing

We chose Atria Merrimack Place because of the quality of the facility as well as the convenience to family. His room size was adequate for his needs. I ate here and the quality of food was good but the options were limited. My favorite part about the community was that it was a positive environment, especially the staff members.

Atria - Caring, Clean and Safe Environment

When we were told that Dad needed to have 24/7 care, the decision to place him in a memory care facility was a very difficult one. We started our search for the right “environment” for him. We looked at many facilities and didn’t realize what we were looking for until we visited an Atria facility. Dad has always been a healthy, strong individual and has always been very independent. We wanted him in an environment where he would be able to thrive, continue to be independent, participate in activities and not feel like he was in a locked unit. Atria had it all. During our tour, we were struck by how spacious the facility was and we did not feel like we were restricted in any way. The location was the only issue and then we were told about Atria Merrimack Place which is a much more convenient location for us. We found that Atria Merrimack Place was about to open their new expanded Life Guidance unit and after touring it, we felt the same way. It’s very spacious and does not feel restrictive. There is a great outdoor interior courtyard which the Life Guidance residents can freely and safely access. The Administration and Staff are incredibly caring and will bend over backwards to make sure the resident’s needs are met. If you have any concerns, they want to know about them and will do whatever is necessary to resolve. The facility is beautiful and clean. We have peace of mind knowing that Dad is being well cared for and is living in a clean and safe environment.

The Atria System

As a resident for one and a half years, I have personally acquired the benefits to my health, and my wife's health with a remarkable organization at Atria Merrimack Place. Each of our administrators participates actively in every branch of service that is required in our facility. The net result of their participation results an effective leadership in each department; nursing, restaurant, activities, maintenance. As a result, a whole core of nursing aides wisely selected for their brilliance as students, in like fashion, servers currently serving food in apartments due to the COVID virus effectively get the job done both in serving and educating residents. Our Executive Director [name removed] has continually reported Governor Baker's directives by way of messages and protocol implementation.

Thrive, don't just survive

My wife of 60 yrs. and I moved to Atria in mid November 2016, but her health deteriorated and she died weeks later, Christmas Day of auto immune disease. At age 87, I was distraught and considered moving back to our local condo, but with he help of Atria staff and residents I improved my outlook on life. Sitting at breakfast with a church friend, I noticed her difficulty opening small packs of butter, cream, and sugar. I started opening them for her and others and that opened my eyes to," there but for the grace of God, go I." I saw the needs of people. In June 2017, with the help of two residents, I started a Residents Newsletter featuring bios, poems, history of Newburyport. To date, we have published 18 issues. A weekly Bible group was started with help which has morphed into a virtual Global Meet. I started a Poker group which met 3X a week and which garnered much success until COVID 19 closed it. Since the lockdown companionship has suffered, I feel. We need more contact between people. Too many residents are spending time in their rooms instead of enjoying fresh air,green grass and the change in seasons. I believe this virus will be with us well into 2021 and as such we shall witness despondency grow. I thank God that at age 91, I am thriving and not just surviving. Since 1997, I have written 256 monthly essays for our local Daily News and since at Atria 48. I turned in my car just last week, but while here since 2016, visited every Resident who was in the local hospital or at the local re-habs. Contact with people has been my main objective here because everyone needs some form of help.

Atria - Excellent New Home for My Mom

My Mom just arrived and is now part of the Memory Care Unit at Atria - Newburyport. She is doing wonderful with all the special help she is receiving from many of the team members. I could mention some names, but would be unfair as EVERYONE has been fantastic. My Mom is much healthier since she arrived with the help of PT and not being confined in her room. She gets along wonderfully with her new resident friends and again, my wife and I are so happy to have her part of the Atria Family.

A wonderful place to live!

My father has resided at Atria Merrimack Place for over 5 years and he feels right at home! The staff is amazing and so friendly and will do whatever is necessary to accommodate the needs of their residents. The areas outside each residence, including the dining areas and living rooms are spotless. The activities that are planned keep my father busy daily, from the bingo games to the movies in the theatre room. The weekly bus trips show the residents the fall foliage as well as decorated holiday homes in the surrounding areas. They offer a wide array of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they are always delicious. My dad's favorite is soup and they offer different kinds each day! The management has been phenomenal during this Covid pandemic and have been proactive about setting policies necessary to keep everyone safe. Overall my family has been very pleased with the Atria Living experience.

Incredible staff, cozy room, fine dining, group activities

My mother moved to the Atria at Merrimack Place 2 years ago after my father died to be nearer to me and my family. From day one the staff at the Atria made her feel at home. They were all so friendly, kind, and welcoming. It didn't take long before my mother felt at home. She enjoys all the activities especially the singing group, exercise class, bingo, and trivia. She is always busy doing something and I never have to worry about her. Her room is spacious and comfortable and she loves the large walk-in closet. So do I!! The food is delicious and the menu is something you would find in a fine dining restaurant. If by chance there is something she doesn't like on the menu, the kitchen is only too happy to make her something else. My mother thanks me all the time for finding the Atria at Merrimack Place for her. Seeing her so happy has made the transition so much easier. I can't thank the staff at Atria Place enough for going above and beyond for my mother and all the residents.

Our mother loves Atria Merrimack Place!

Our mother was not happy after we moved her out of the house our father built 60 years earlier. That was almost five years ago when my father passed away! Since then our mother has come to love her stay at Atria Merrimack Place. She has many "girl friends"! She says the food is yummy, the staff friendly, and enjoys all the activities. Thank you Atria for taking such good care of our mother!

Atria Merrimack Place - Ideal Location

Thinking back to the first time I went to Atria Merrimack Place, I knew it would be an ideal spot for my mother. Failing eyesight has caused my mother to depend heavily on those around her, so trusting the people around her and finding a safe & accessible facility, were extremely important to our collective family. Given that my mother moved in only three to four weeks before Atria chose to lock down the residents due to the Corona virus [a decision made by Atria before the governor of Massachusetts made any official such request], knowing she was in the great care of the people at Atria Merrimack Place was extremely comforting during such a stressful time.

Ten wonderful years and counting......

My mother-in-law has been a resident for ten years. During this time she has made many wonderful friends. The staff has treated her with absolute kindness, consideration and respect. She considers so many of them extended family. If you are looking for a new home for your parent or loved one, I ask you to consider Atria Merrimac Place. It really is a special place. There is something for everyone to participate in daily, a place to celebrate holidays and milestones and, most of all, to be safe, happy and well cared for. Needless to say, my mother-in-law's needs have changed. She's 96 now and thanks to the staff and services, she's still able to live there independently and happily. I don't think we could possibly keep Mom as happy at home. She's with her peers and has lots to do in a safe environment.

Atria Merrimack Place

I wanted to move my husband into Atria, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we weren't able to move him in. This was terribly disconcerting to me and we asked if we could get out of our contact, however Atria would not allow us to break it. It was beyond everyone's control and I couldn't in good conscious leave my husband in the community on lock down. I feel they wish they could have done more to accommodate with my situation especially given the extenuating circumstances. It was a large chunk of money for nothing.

Eighteen years in business and physically looks very good. There are plans to add more apartments and speciality common areas, e.g. a movie theatre in the next several years. Its stated strengths are its food (dining open from 7am to 7pm with a menu of 30 items), quality of nursing care (10 minute response time to resident calls, an exceptional executive nurse), and program quality. Property not large but well groomed with a circular paved footpath.
