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.
