Review ofAtria Marina Place
5.0

We identified Atria for my mother in Spring of 2021 and were able to get her moved in within a week of her touring. The Atria staff was attentive, patient, and unconditionally accommodating during her tour. Since moving in, the staff has maintained this level of excellence even during the pandemic. They’ve been able to stay creative with planned activities for the residents while keeping everyone safe, and consistently deliver excellent programming. The facility is incredibly well maintained, and the residents and staff all make it evident how happy they are to be living or working there. This was a great find for my mom and I look forward to visits with her at Atria for years to come.

This week my wife and I visited our long time next door neighbor, who recently moved into the Maplewood facility. Frankly, we miss her and wanted to see with our own eyes, the place she speaks so highly of! Well, we’ll still miss seeing her everyday, but we will no longer be concerned about her new home (assisted living) and the professionals that help her. Wow! Everything really exceeded what we had expected. While we were only there for a couple of hours we had a great feeling when we left, knowing that she really was in good hands!! Thanks Maplewood!

They were good. A couple of times people wouldn't show up or left my sister alone. But as far as the staff, they immediately tried to help me and get me somebody to come and help in those instances.

We chose Guardian Angel Senior Services because of the value for the money as well as the locality.
