We feel we have found a good fit

Everything is going well at The Atrium. They call us once a week with updates. The care giving staff is very communicative and is quick to confirm anything they need in terms of my mother-in-law's care. Because the community is on lock down as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff offered to FaceTime with us to make sure my mother-in-law got time to see us and interact with us. The cost is steep and my mother-in-law is quickly running low on funds, and The Atrium does not accept Medicaid so she will need to move relatively soon. They normally have good activities available for the residents as well. The executive director is fantastic and is always very communicative and will to address any of our concerns.

Visit only. Wait list. This was a very clean, spacious community. I liked the amount of space available for the residents to move around in though there didn't seem to be a lot of available independent activities. All staff were very friendly and informative. The one negative is that there is one nurse that administers medication who is on site 8-8. If anyone needed medication outside that time, there is no one to administer it. This won't work with someone who needs emergency medication like inhalers.

Poor aides

Very clean and awesome staff. However staff is under paid. The residents can be very difficult. I as a family member pay way too much and the poor aides is under paid. How does that work!?!
