Overall a good community, but better communication

This used to be Atria Sterling it has now been bought out by Pacifica and during that transition process the business side of things were pretty confusing and difficult. Trying to make decisions for our loved one regarding finances and scheduled was difficult, but that has all now been settled. The place itself is fine, the community has always looked nice and kept clean. During the pandemic the meals and dining were restricted, breakfast and lunch were served in the rooms and dinner was served in the dining room and residents had to take different shifts. Now that everyone is vaccinated they can eat in the dining room. However, they do have very inconvenient visiting hours for those who work a normal 8-5 job, they are horrible. Also we do find the communication with the medical staff is lacking and frustrating at times. Our loved one does really seem to enjoy the place and has made a few good friends.

I would recommend

We chose Pacifica Senior Living at the time due to the value for the money, they were a lot cheaper than others that we looked into. Also the location was nice for family. The room sizes here are a little on the smaller side, they are in a studio apartment. They have recently changed management and the new management seem to be more responsive. I would recommend them to others who are looking.

I would check other places. I had a bad experience and I thought the issue was handled unprofessionally.

my loved one is safe at atria sterling

The community is very protective of its residence. I feel safe that my dad is there. The community sets up social distance visiting and if your out of town they also set up facetime calls for the family. The communication between the staff and the family is very good. I would recommend this community.

Atria Sterling - BEST Senior Assisted Living

I can't say enough wonderful things about Atria Sterling! My Mother-in-law has been there for over a year now and has received such amazing care from the entire staff.......from meal service, to handyman services, to daily exercise, and to creative activities. Atria is one of the most family oriented assisted living venues I have ever seen. The residents and staff treat each other like family and watch over each other like family. It was such a relief to already know this when the Covid Virus hit and the staff was met with so many challenges. They kept a positive attitude throughout it all and we felt so comforted to know the high level of care our loved one was receiving for so so many months when we were not able to actually see and visit her. [name removed], The Activities Director, has been amazing and gone above and beyond to keep the residents engaged and their minds active, especially during the virus time where she managed socially distanced outside visits under a tent for family members to share some time with their loved ones. [name removed], The Director, is very responsive to any questions or concerns at any time, and spends the necessary time with family or resident to listen, understand the situation and resolve quickly, even if it's a little matter. We have really missed seeing and chatting with all the wonderful staff and other residents we have come to know but understand it is necessary to keep everyone safe. We are looking forward to when we can see everyone's smiling faces and hear their laughter again, once we are safely away from the virus. HUGE CHEERS FOR ATRIA STERLING!

So happy we found Atria Sterling

Let me start off by saying we did not find this facility first and I wish we did. We had to leave another facility and moving dad here was the best thing we did. The staff is great. From the concierges at the front desk, the dining staff, the nursing and care team, the residential life/activities team, to the facilities staff. They all are incredible. They will go out of their way to tend to every need of the residents. They all are proud of their facility, the company and their leadership team. They truly make it a happy and upbeat place. The family communication is wonderful with regular email and social media updates. They have been working on a big remodel project that is rolling out in phases, but the master plan is exciting. The building is always clean and well kept. I highly recommend this facility. They take great care of the residents because they truly personally care for them as if they were their family. They have been managing the Covid crisis with incredible infection control procedures and access control to protect the residents.

Love [name removed] the Activities Director at Atria Sterling!

I have to commend the Staff at Atria-Sterling VA. They truly care for our loved one like they were their own. [name removed] ,the Activities Director has stepped up to the challenge of COVID restrictions and came up with some creative activities to keep people stimulated. It’s comforting to know they care about the people living there and the staff will go out of their way to help each other as well as the individuals living there.

Great care and great community

My mom has been at Atria Sterling for a year now and is fully integrated into the community. She is so well cared for and loved by the excellent staff. It is such a blessing for our family to be able to call her and find her happy. I love when I can't reach her on the phone during the day (which happens frequently) because that means she's out having a good time doing activities and spending time with her friends.

Stay away

My father was in the facility for 2 months. There is something shady going on here and I'm requesting an investigation of their practices.

[Name removed] is great. Facility is a bit old and my wife said it smelled bad. We both thought it was on the small side (50-70 residents). My mom would probably want a 1-bedroom. It was a good start, but need to keep looking. -- We passed a place named WaltonWood ([removed] on the way home. We sent them a note requesting a tour. Are they on APlaceForMom?

A lovely place but modest and seemingly affordable for a moderate budget. Clean, happy guests, friendly place and many nice amenities and updating of rooms. Fairly old place. Good services.

Good Tour of This Community

My wife, and I had a nice tour of this community. Everyone was kind, and welcoming to us. The community was nice, and clean from what we saw. The staff was informative, and our questions were answered. The experience went well, and our tour was a good one.

Kindness and value

This is a nice community for the care of a loved one. We found that the staff was helpful and nice. We liked seeing the residents who seemed social. We liked the activities and the nice menu of meals that are provided. We would recommend this community for the care of loved one.

Brookdale Sterling was nice but seemed a little institutional. Staff seemed to be caring and to know all residents. Facilities were a little older compared to the other places I visited.

Respite Services

I had a close friend of my mother's needing some short term care following an extended illness which left her weak and needing some "TLC" and medication oversight. She was recommended Brookdale Sterling by the rehab next door which shares the same parking lot (2 different companies) for respite services. The community is pleasant, clean and conveniently located to both me which allowed me to visit frequently. I understood that all fees for the respite stay were inclusive and the apartment was already furnished as well. This made the transition from the rehab to the community very easy. I will have to say the community is light on activities, or at least it appears that way.....not much happening during the times I was there but overall I was pleased with how the situation turned out. My mother's friend got well enough to go home and even picked up a few pounds while there. I would refer this community for a short term stay. I'm not sure how long term residency works.

We were not happy with my mother's care when she stayed at their attached rehab facility (on the same property, different name). Rehab was excellent, but unfortunately, the way the certified nursing assistants handled her and her fears means we'll never trust a Brookdale establishment ever again. One or two CNAs made her stay a living nightmare, and even after complaining, and empty promises it would never happen again, they were repeatedly assigned to her, resulting in night terrors and a visible decline in her mental stability. These issues cleared up once we transferred her to another facility. I'd like to add, my mother was a nurse earlier in her life, and knew exactly what was going on -- and she was livid.

Met our Needs

Great little community. Newer Executive Director, however she has been with the company in a different role for several years. Community appears to be getting a little "facelift" as some added touches to common area spaces are look nicer than we moved in. Staff friendly, kind and generous. Again, newer Care Director but she too was part of the nursing team prior and has been in the community supervising. Food is good as far as facility food goes. If asked, yes we would pick this community again.

Don't go there!

I have been involved in many decisions for skilled care facilities for loved ones. I have worked in many care facilities as well as served on my local Ombudsman committee to investigate senior facilities. Going into this facility, we thought it was the best decision for my mother as a decision was made quickly upon her release from skilled care rehabilitation for a surgically repaired broken femur. This is the case for most families when loved ones cannot return home after a traumatic health event. The room was spacious and the staff was warm and welcoming during the initial tour. Upon moving in, everything changed. Less than adequate staff/patient ratio with only 4 medical staff/1000+ beds. Even though her apartment was right next to the nurses station, she was left unattended for hours on end. We paid additional money to have her checked every 2 hours. The facility was aware she was a fall risk as she was still recuperating from her surgery. After 4 falls, the last one left her with a fractured vertebrae in her back. In extreme pain and now confined to a wheelchair, my mother is a mere shadow of what she was upon admission in just 2 short months. When her demeanor changed drastically, we suspected a UTI. It took them 2 weeks to get a urinalysis to confirm our suspicions. Even at that point, my sister had to step in to help them collect the specimen because they were unable to. Her dementia has advanced more quickly due to the pain and infection she suffered [removed]. Their lack of concern and care is unfathomable for an assisted living facility. I know Brookdale is a huge conglomerate but they need to pay more attention to the patients instead of their stock price because all lives matter. What looks good from the outside and upon initial tour of the facility is a deception. Do not consider this facility if you care about your loved one.
