Review ofAtria Sunnyvale
4.7

We've never seen anything better. We looked at quite a lot of other places, and this one is far and away the one that is most appropriate for my mother. There were some that were more expensive, and some that were less expensive. This one hits the target. Surprisingly enough, they even reduced the price after they evaluated her level of service required. They're very friendly. 99% of them go overboard to make sure people feel comfortable. They've learned our names quickly, even though we're not residents, and even with mask wearing. I was surprised how good the food was. There's only couple of things that my mother has complained about. She says that sometimes the person who assists with showering is a bit rough for a 92-year old. Also, the dining hall has some kitchen noise that hurts her ears. And the only complaint I have is there was one person at the reception desk who operated like a security guard instead of a welcoming committee. I've given that feedback directly already. They have addressed the issue, and we've been really friendly with one another ever since. And the staff overall - the maintenance staff, care staff, medication staff, and top management - are all just overboard outstanding.

Review ofAtria Willow Glen
4.9

I looked around at various facilities and I chose Atria Willow Glen because of the value for the money, it is close to my friends, as well as the fact that it is only 2 floors. It is on 7 acres and they have pods where you are able to stay. They are all separated and each pod has their own activity room and outside area. The location is great and close to a lot of shopping. The grounds here are absolutely beautiful. There is a great swimming pool as well. I would highly recommend to others who are looking.
