Caring staff makes my mom feel at home

The staff makes her feel really welcome and at home. She constantly says you picked such a good place for me. This was the most affordable place that was the nicest. It was surprising to me how affordable it was. I feel like there is a trade off with the services that are offered. I think they could have more brain engaging activities rather than just having social hours. I feel if she had more types of mental stimulating activities that she would have improved quicker. They recently transitioned to Gardens from Atria and it was not communicated well to the families, I think communication is something that could be improved. The people who interact with her are very sweet. The executive director seems cool and she is trying to run with the new transition. The facility is really small, so if your family member would be overwhelmed by a large facility, this would be a good cozy place for them. There is limited outside space but it is all well cared for. It is immaculately clean and the person who does the maintenance is super sweet.... Read more

The Gardens is a great assisted living place.

Coming from a traditional home we were skeptical of using assisted living for my grandmother. But with everyone working and taking care of the children it become harder to make sure her needs were met. Luckily the Gardens have proven very capable of making sure she is comfortable and her needs met. Staff is very kind and patient, haven't had a single complaint and for the price it's worth it. Definitely put my and my family's mind as ease having her here.

Great atmosphere and helpful staff!

Just stopped by to visit my aunt for a bit and I was very impressed by how lively the atmosphere was! All the staff I encountered were very helpful in pointing me in the right direction and seemed happy to help. I thought the place also smelled lovely!

Tour of The Gardens

We had a really good tour experience with Gardens at Escondido. The only reason we did not choose this facility was because it was a very large place that was spread out which would require a lot of walking.

Understaffed

We did have a lot of problems with the care just because of the lack of staff, the staff that they did have were great though. I did not feel he got the care that my loved one got the care that they should have had. I found the maintenance staff and housekeeping staff exceptional. All departments were understaffed which I would say is an administrative issue.

Care of My Father

My dad went to Atria from another retirement home. His care from the medical staff at Atria has been outstanding. The other place didn't give him the care he needed.

It was good value for the cost

From what we were we able to see of the community it was very clean, and based off the menu we saw the food looked to be pretty good. We do believe just based off the schedule and calendar they had plenty of activities to offer. Overall for what they offered and the price that we paid we do think the value was good, and if our loved one was just a little more pleasant and more involved we really think they would of enjoyed their time.

I would definitely recommend Atria

The staff members would be a five plus, and the food looks good and good portions. They did their best with the activities, they got IPads so we could talk to our loved ones when they were locked down. Once we could go visits they would set up outside areas. When they had to quarantine they would play bingo on the IPads, so they got very creative.

A great place for my mom

the staff at the community is outstanding, the care they provide is second to none, and the compassion they provide the families is wonderful. The room sizes are smaller than others but they are enough, and she loved the food. I would recommend this community to others.

Decent value for the money

The community was overall very clean. The staff was good, however sometimes availability was in question. Overall, the care was good. The only thing we thought needed improvement were the laundry services. They always had activities available for residents. The price for this community was ok overall.

Staff was very friendly and had a very small family vibe. Bright and higher ceilings. Very clean. Not much outdoor space. Very small @80 residents. No gym or pool. Need to find out how much for 1 bedroom. No kitchen in room. personal care add'l cost. Food brought to room additional cost. licensed memory care facility. Worried about mom being challenged and connecting with the older population.

I toured this community

[Removed] was a nice gentleman that gave me the tour and he answered all of my questions. The property was small. The location wasn't ideal, there were lots of broken down cars on the street where they were located. Didn't feel very welcoming to me. I wouldn't feel safe leaving my mom here.

Really enjoyed my tour, people friendly, place bright and welcoming, my tour guide was very helpful in our conversation. Residents seem to really enjoy it. Unfortunately outside of our price range with the level care he would need.

Very Nice Tour

The staff did a very nice job in showing us around and they took their time doing so as well as answering our questions. This is a very nice community that offers a lot to their residents but we felt the room sizes were not what we wanted for our mother.

Almost a perfect fit!

Atria North Escondido was a really nice tour. The staff was very friendly and answered all of our questions. It offers a nice quiet atmosphere. We had the opportunity to dine there and the cook is very proud of the meals presented. They even had us take home some of the homemade muffins. It is a great location, close to the YMCA. We chose another location because my mom really wanted a kitchen.

Nice community

Atria was very nice. The food looked good too! We decided other options because the layout of the room isn't what we were looking for.
