Smooth Sailing

My dad needed a place within the next week and the team was on top of it! They are very responsive and helped us get him moved in within 7 days.

Very impressed

I recently toured on my own to see if it might be a good fit for Mom and was really impressed with all that I saw. I am taking my Mom to visit as a result. The grounds are peaceful and green and I especially liked the koi pond. The dining menu looks like there is a nice variety of cuisines available and there is a smaller “all-day” dining menu that is also good. The monthly list of activities is extensive and varied so I felt like there was something tempting for everyone to try. The residents and staff appeared to be happy to be there and were very friendly, answering any questions I had. The newer, remodeled rooms were a bit more costly but not by too much and, overall, I think the price point is very reasonable. I am looking forward to having my Mom visit.

Lovely community

My friend is looking for a senior living community for her mom and asked me to go on tour with her. This is the 4th community we toured. We both noticed that there were residents out and about, and there was a lot going on which was nice. Residents and employees seemed happy and greeted us. The grounds are beautiful and maintained nicely. The resident garden and greenhouse were a highlight. We looked at a one and two bedroom. Definitely older, but good space, clean, and plenty of closet space. Different feel than others in a positive way.

Great Community & Friendly Residents & Staff

My grandmother has lived at Atria Willow Glen for the last four months. She loves her apartment and she has been enjoying the exercise classes, games, guest lectures and swimming in the pool. Everyone is warm and welcoming. It has been a great experience for her and our family.

This Place Meets Most People's Needs

I would tell others location, location, location. Move in, however, select your apartment very carefully. The inside of the apartments are all the same; however the outside will vary by view and the size of the patio. If you like the outdoors, select the apartment carefully, and your view. There aren't a lot of activities that are on the younger side of life. The activities don't have a lot of variety and this may change after the pandemic. The food is very good and very monotonous . Lots of fresh fruits and veggies, low salt and sugar. There are a lot of residents that complain about the food. It would be nice to have variety of the food and this would help the residents with the food. The grounds are beautiful. They have a koi pond. There are mature rose bushes, trees, and the gardening is well attended to. It is a pleasant place to wonder around. If you like a beautiful garden this is the place to come. If you want to grow your own garden, there is one on site. On the downside about half the people in independent living have either full time care takers, or have some type of memory care concerns. I would have expected it to be a different level of independent living here. My review is based on my less than 6 months experience.

My Review of Atria Willow Glen

It's fine but not for everyone. This community is more for the independent resident than those that are needing assistance.

Atria is great

We chose Atria Willow Glen because I loved the gardens and the surroundings. It is also in a very convenient location. It is a great facility and I have no complaints about it. I would happily recommend it to anyone looking.

My brother in law loves it at Atria Willow Glen. We chose this facility because of the friendliness of the staff members as well as the location. The apartment sizes are great which was another reason this facility stuck out to us. I would highly recommend.

my mother has lived independently in a 1 bedroom apartment for 4 1/2 years. We have hired additional care to help her with bathing, medicine, and other needs. This excellent care is provided by a separate onsite entity.

Tenure

Two years ago we had to move our father into a dementia care facility in San Jose. We new very little about the process and what is the most importin thing to look for when selecting a home. We selected a facility that was new and clean and very friendly. But little did we know the one importin thing we didn't ask was the tenure of the employees, come to find out it was a revolving door. New employees at each visit, with not consistence of care for our father. We relocated dad this late spring to Atria, top of our list of question was tenure. We were blown away with the the longevity of the staff, every personal has a name tag and on it is how may years they have worked for Atria. We are truly thankful we found the right home for dad and how caring they are, there is laughter and joking abound. The team really feels like a second family. Don't let the old of the building stop you from coming in, because the warmth of the hearts will win you over. We are a believer

Wonderful facility

I can't say enough about Atria at Willow Glen! I was so concerned about putting my grandmother into a facility but I am very pleased with the staff, programs offered, and level of care that she receives at Atria. The staff is wonderful about communicating with me and answering my many, many questions. Thank you, Atria!!!

Amazing Atria

Atria is a safe and happy place for the residents to live! The daily schedules provide social integration for all with parties, clubs, lectures and outings with travel provided! The staff is what makes it feel like home! The administration is always available and the Engaged Life Department are uniquely kind and encouraging social opportunities!

Beautiful community, wonderful residents and staff

I love this atria community! The staff are exceptional - they are caring, professional, authentic and go above and beyond. The grounds are beautiful and condos feel like they are nestled in a park. Best of all, the residents have a strong sense of community. I highly recommend Atria Willow Glen!

A Great Community with Great people

They have such a wonderful place here! They have so many events and fun things to do. I have not met one single staff member who isn't wonderful and caring. Food is good quality which is very important. During COVID they have done a great job keeping the residents connected and cared for while staying safe.

So Very Happy at Atria Willow Glen

After researching and visiting several independent living facilities, I chose to live at Atria Willow Glen. I was concerned that it might be a difficult transition because I had lived in my home for 44 years. To my delight, Atria Willow Glen felt like home immediately. All of the staff are kind and patient with my many questions. They recommended a company that would pack and move the items I wanted to bring with me from my house and they recommended a person to do an estate sale. My Atria Willow Glen apartment feels brand new. Everything is clean and fresh. The meals are delicious with great items to choose from. Even in this time of coronavirus there are interesting one on one or small group activities outdoors, with everyone wearing masks. I have enjoyed the Tea and Tidings Group of three. We wear masks and maintain social distancing as we discuss and explore positive new events, inventions and trends. I have also enjoyed the small exercise group. Again we keep social distancing and wear masks. Even though I am in a wheelchair the exercises are great. Each person can accommodate their own physical conditions. Atria Willow Glen is dedicated to keeping us all safe from the coronavirus. Everyone wears masks outside of their apartments. Staff and residents’ temperatures are taken twice a day. I particularly enjoy paths through the beautiful grounds. Trees, landscaping, a fountain, and a Koi pond with a small waterfall contribute to make the grounds feel like a beautiful park. I could not be happier living here at Atria Willow Glen. I feel safe, well cared for and very happy.

A couple great things about his place but that's where it abruptly ends. The residents here are lovely and the grounds are beautiful! However the management and staff leave MUCH to be desired. When signing contracts with them make sure you take away the paper work and read through every line and examine the phrasing. Later you won't be able to prove anything they said to you, only what you signed. They have lots of stipulations they they gloss over and hope you don't pay too much attention to. The most egregious one being an upfront, NON-REFUNDABLE "facility fee" at the time of at least $3,600. They say it is for programs and maintenance of the community, however if that is true it would be more fitting that that be factored into the rent or added as a monthly fee. Instead the fee is required upfront and no matter how long you stay it will not be returned to you. Of course Atria is hoping you pass away or move as quickly as possible to pocket as much cash as possible. My mother in law stayed at Atria for 4 months and had to leave due to declining health. She left her apartment in excellent condition. When we asked about what they had referred to as a deposit when signing rental paperwork now the "deposit" had suddenly turned into a "facility fee" and would not be returned. SO SHADY! My mother in law did not use $750 a month of programs or community resources!! When we pushed a little asking why this was a upfront fee and not a more fair monthly fee we were given a "you're the ones who signed the contract" canned response. Shame on our family for not being more critical of the paperwork we signed, but honestly shame on Atria for taking advantage of senior citizens on a fixed income and being so underhanded and cold about it. Oh, and the food is terrible. Overall definitely would not recommend Atria to anyone I care about.
