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 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!
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.
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.
We chose this community because of the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, it was run smoothly. The concern the staff had and making sure she felt comfortable and had the coverage she needed was our favorite part. The food was healthy and nutritious and they paid extra attention to the needs of each individuals.
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.
Lovely spot, caring staff and wonderful facility. This is on the high end, very luxurious feel, in a good way. Not the right geographical fit for us, though.
This is a great community and there is such a positive atmosphere here. the staff is friendly and caring. My mom likes taking part in the activities and special events and she has a very nice apt. Mom enjoys joining the other residents in the dining room and the menu choices are very good as well. I am happy with the care my mother is getting here.
My dad has recently moved into this community and I am very pleased with how things are going for her so far. The staff have been very helpful and I am comfortable with the quality of care that he is receiving. He has had no complaints about the meals and enjoys participating in the activities with the other residents from time to time. Overall things are great and I would recommend it to anyone.
