Tour experience

All I did was take a tour with Atria Virginia Beach, but from what I saw it seemed very nice - the facility is beautiful. I noticed that a majority of the residents here were in great shape and sharp, my mother needed a lot more nursing care. That was the main reason we did not choose Atria and also it was very expensive.

Community Tour

I thought Atria Virginia Beach was great. The staff were very caring. They had great follow-up, and it was done in a very caring way - not at all pushy. I felt like they kept my loved one's needs in mind, and they also acknowledged how much I was juggling at the time. They were extremely helpful. If my loved one would have decided to stay in that area, I thought they would have been a wonderful choice. The only thing they didn’t have that he would have really liked is a pool table.

Meets all the needs

Our family has had a very good experience so far, and it has exceeded our expectations. The activities are limited being on the memory care side but they are still good. It is smaller which we like, the residents have their own dining room and there is only room for 20 residents - this allows it to be more intimate. Our loved ones apartment is just the right size for her and we like how there is a hair salon there. We would recommend this community to other families.

its been a great move and a positive experience

It has been a really good successful hit having our loved one here, they really understand our loved ones needs and level of comfort. They have a concierge desk that still has families and visitors check in and out and have their temperature taking, their hours are 8AM to 8PM so it gives the residents and families plenty of time to ask questions during the days or ask for assistance which is really helpful. They do not want residents just sitting in their rooms they want them out and about engaging with the community. They have a lot of different and appropriate activities and a lot of the activities do not require advanced notice or sign-ups so it takes the pressure off our loved one having to sign up and then deciding to not go. They provide meals which has been great - our loved one desperately needed to gain weight and she has been. The value for the money is absolutely incredible. We really like the fact that if our loved one starts to need additional care and assistance she does not have to move out of her room, she can stay there and receive the required services. The only time she would need to move would be for memory care.

My mom loves Atria!

Getting mom's meds sorted in the move has been a bit of a hassle, and I think the nurses could be a bit more helpful than they have been. Mom loves it there and is very happy with her choice. She particularly comments on how friendly everyone on staff is.

Overall a very, very good experience!

I've been very happy with them across the board. So has my mother. Everyone we've dealt with, both before we moved her in and since then, has been helpful and friendly. My mom says that everyone there has been really great to her. She didn't want to go at first, but I've been pleasantly surprised how happy she has been. The facility is really nice, and there's a nice little outdoor area where they can sit. It's a covered space, so you can still go out if it's raining. Really the only area for improvement would be the meals. She would just like to see more vegetables.

our families experience

The staff here have great communication, they are very informative and have no issues answering our questions. The billing is very straight forward, everything is very clear and upfront. Our loved one is very happy with the food and the layout of the building. She has a spacious one bedroom apartment, and has house keeping come to help with the laundry. There are also a ton of activities for the residents to do.

My mother likes it

We chose Atria Virginia Beach because of the overall package, the view from the apartment, and the price. The food is very institutional, it feels like cafeteria food so they could definitely improve on the quality of the meals. The staff really seem to care and they get involved. They have really impressed me and are always making sure she gets what she needs. Overall I would recommend to others

Our experience with Atria

She really likes her apartment and the fact that she is able to have her car. She is meeting a lot of people as well. Her one complaint is the food, she says that she and the others are not happy with that at all and she has been skipping a lot of the meals. I do also think they could have some better activities provided. Overalls he is happy and I would recommend them to other families looking.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and the facility is very nice pretty and smelled clean. The people we encountered were all pleasant but at the time they did not have any independent living apartments that had a washer and dryer inside, or that have the availability for us to put one in.

A Great Place for Mom

They have been absolutely great. My mom was in a different facility and moved to Atria, and she has really enjoyed being there. She's really very happy. It has been a very positive move, and we could tell that it was going to be from the minute we walked in the door. It's a warm and friendly environment. There's a lot of care and concern from all members of the staff. My mom has been able to make friends, and she reports that she's really happy with the food.

I made the right choice. Happy that my mom is here.

I am very happy with them. I suspect any problems I've seen are related to staffing issues that are industry-wide. Anything that they don't do or fail at would be related to simply being overwhelmed by the times. But when I come to them with issues, I feel that they sincerely care. Really our only criticism is my mom has been a little disappointed in the quality of the food sometimes.

Disappointed

The residents are pretty much left on their own thoughout the day, except at med time and meal time. The staff in the memory unit working with residents were very nice, but I believe there were understaffed. My sister suffers from early onset dementia and I was hoping the Memory Care unit at this facility would be a good fit for her, sadly it was not. Most of the residents are well in to their 80s, my sister is a young 54 yo. It is my belief that because she was still active, it was too much for the staff and administration, and my sister was asked to leave. I would think all Memory Care facilities were trained in dealing with all types of dementia in all age groups.
