Atria Almaden in San Jose, CA

Overall I am very happy here I am been here for quite sometime - but they have struggled with hiring a manager that stays consistently so something's are haphazard. [name removed] does a wonderful job in the kitchen - sometimes the meals come out cold but he is currently working on fixing that problem. Overall based on the experience I have had I would recommend Atria Almaden to other families .

Atria Evergreen Valley in San Jose, CA

Understaffed, as best as they can, they do the best care, food, etc. They let people go who are caring and want to help and keep the wrong ones who don't want to help residents. Don't pay enough for this area.
