Really beautiful and caring place! Highly recommend !!
Has gone downhill under new management, was outstanding before. Avoid!!
They never responded to us.
I was able to do a virtual tour with this community and it was very nice., they took us throughout the entire facility. We decided to go with another community because that community had a credit dementia practitioner and we thought they would be better for our loved one.
The staff are friendly and the residents seem happy to live here. I was impressed with the rooms. The food looks good and nutrional. It's pet friendly. There are outdoor areas and activities for memory care. It is more $$ than the other places I have visited. On the down side, it is 30 minutes from our house.
My loved one liked Atria but the transition to Morada has not been good. Lots of staff turnover (even more than usual with these kinds of places) and there’s no communication anymore! The people used to answer the phone and be friendly but now it’s just all business. I used to recommend this place but now I don’t. We’re probably going to have to find a new place. So sad
Well done. Guide walked through the entire memory care area using his cell phone. Shared some of the programs they have to engage the residents. When he unlocked the door to the court yard I asked why the doors were locked. He indicated that it was too cold for the residents to be out but when the weather was warmer, the door was not locked. Empathy for residents came out in how he answered my question. He then walked the court yard and shared about the residents grow their own vegetables and tend to the court yard plants. the tour lasted about 50 minutes and he interacted with the only resident we encountered.
Overall, since we have been there they raised the prices over $300 a month due to the virus. We have had some payment issues with them and I have not been able to get a hold of anyone on the phone so they have not been good with communication. They never return my phone calls or voicemails. They did just get bought out so I think that is where a lot of the issues have been. Other than these billing issues, everything has been pretty good with the facility.
The community is safe and the staff is nice. It wasn't the best of the best but I felt comfortable leaving my loved one there. I would recommend this community to others.
Depending on the level of care that your loved one needs it is definitely a great place to be. As my loved ones declined in health, the community wasn't as proactive at discussing with us about any of the updates. If you don't need as much cares, this is a great place and they communicate well with you.
[name removed] was very personable and seemed to understand and sympathic to my situation. Provided good information.
We had a really good experience with them. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They had a lot of activity. We chose this community because it was just a really nice facility, it was very safe, the grounds were really nice and they had courtyards and plenty of room to walk. They had church services, both non denominational and a separate Catholic service every week. The food was pretty good with a variety. The also have an in house ice cream parlor. I would recommend this community to other families.
very disappointed. The renovation is not systematic but everywhere. Trip and fall hazards abound. the smell of sewer gas on the upper floor public restroom hurts when breathed. As far as I know, it has gone on for three weeks. The food is processed, and of poor quality. It is presented very nice. Twice I have visited and have caught a nasty virus. the protocols for cleaning for illness needs stepped up.
First of all, my mom loves the residents and staff she comes in contact with at Atria. But upper management could do a much better job of rectifying problems that should be very easy to fix. My mom has lived in Atria since [date removed]. She was not given keys to her mailbox. She requested her mailbox keys several times from the front desk personnel and each time was told they would submit a request for her keys. We thought they were requesting the keys from the US Postal service. I didn’t find out until [date removed], by calling the USPS, that Atria owns and manages those mailboxes, and must provide the keys. I called and spoke with the maintenance manager, [name removed], about this on this same day. [Name removed] said he had only been in his position since the previous Monday ([date removed]) and had no extra mailbox keys for any of the new residents. He ordered keys and hoped to have them by [date removed]. I called [name removed] on [date removed]. The mailbox locks/keys still hadn’t come in yet, but they were supposed to come in the next day. [Name removed] said if they don’t come in on the [date removed], he would go to Home Depot and pay for the locks/keys himself, out of his own pocket. I called [name removed] on [date removed]. The locks/keys still hadn’t come in. He took my phone number and said he would call me when they come in. I called on [date removed] and asked to speak with [name removed]’s boss, the executive director of Atria, [name removed]. I relayed this entire episode; told her how two important documents had been returned to sender; and asked for her help in getting my mom her mailbox keys. [Name removed] promised me that: “she would address this with [name removed], get results, and call me back.” I have no way of knowing if she addressed this with [name removed]. But she has not gotten results, nor called me back. I called [name removed] on [date removed]. [Name removed], the receptionist, said [name removed] wasn’t in her office. I told her the entire story. [Name removed] sent message to [name removed] and [name removed]. [Name removed] called me and said mom’s mailbox is ready to use. Her mailbox keys and mail is waiting for her at the front desk. I thought this issue was thus resolved. I spoke with my mom on [date removed]. She said she does have her mailbox keys, but her mailbox doesn’t have a lock in it – just a hole where the lock should be. I called and asked for [name removed]. [Name removed], the receptionist, said [name removed] was with someone in her office. [Name removed] said she would pass on my message to [name removed]. I’ve since called for [name removed] on [date removed] and [date removed], leaving messages on her voicemail. [Name removed] has never called me back. And my mom still does not have a lock on her mailbox. I want to stress that these failures in responsiveness and communication are solely those of the maintenance manager, [name removed], and executive director, [name removed]. Everyone else at Atria has been so kind, helpful, caring and responsive to my mom. And my mom loves living there. No one knows how personnel at these facilities will respond until an issue or problem arises. This episode does cause me concern, especially if a more serious problem were to occur.
We were impressed with the physical facility on our tour. It is a beautiful facility, however, there is something to be desired from the management and some staff. Once Mom was moved in, we realized that certain services promised were not being performed until I begged. Excuses of short staffing, people on vacation, staff turn-over were given. The situation did not improve much over time. It was not made clear while signing a contract that many basic services came with extra fees and charges - over and above the substantial rent amount. If you are considering this facility for a loved one, be sure to get clear information from the marketing and contract administrators before signing anything.
I just visited my mom at Atria for the first time since she moved in. I am so happy she chose Atria. Atria is so appealing, clean, safe, and welcoming. My mom's studio apartment is perfect. It's clean, has everything she needs, and very comfortable. It's even nicer than she described (which was very nice). She enjoys her choices for meals. Everyone (staff and residents) are so friendly and helpful. They have several nice outings and activities. I would be happy moving into Atria myself.
This place was really really nice! Only thing missing was assisted living options which is what I we need. [Name removed]
My mother has lived at Atria Vista del Rio for the past 2.5 years. She lives in the memory care unit (Life Guidance). She actively participates in bingo games, art classes, discussions of current events, chair exercise, and Friday happy hours with music. She blossomed while living there, following my dad's death. She became the person the staff looked to to help lead residents in group discussions or exercise and a good listener to those who wanted to talk. The food is good and the staff are very capable. There are opportunities to get out and see the city (on van rides) and to enjoy music with the larger community. Spring, summer, and fall in the secure courtyard adds an ability to get outside.
My Mother lived happily in the Memory Care unit at Altria Vista del Rio for three and 1/2 years. She arrived from Chicago and was wrlcomed by sraff and residencys alike. In her previous residence she had felt overwhelmed. In her new lovely rooms with varied activities she regained her confidence. At 94 she was encouraged by the wonderful art therapist to try painting and amazed herself and her family by creating beautiful paintings. She loved giving original works of art to friends and family. The staff recognized ways to challenge and motivate her and She responded. At 96 eight months after surgery and PT she said she wanted to walk again. [Name removed], the unit Director had her re-evuated and was part of the team that listened, supported and encouraged her progress. Her care givers were loving and caring, making sure her needs were met and exceeded. Her sense of style was encouraged and even given new life. My brother and I cannot say enough positive things about the care and love given to my beloved mother.
