Review ofAtria Rye Brook
5.0

The Atria at Rye Brook has been a safe haven for our family. We contacted the Atria after realizing that the care my mother had received at another facility was not a good fit for our family. The community director at the Atria immediately put us at ease, and every interaction we have had with the staff at the Atria since then has been equally satisfying. The kindness and care the Atria staff has shown to my mother gives our family peace of mind that she is in a safe and healthy environment. Someone is always available to answer our questions, and they are thoughtful about the way that they provide individualized care for each of the residents. Every member of the staff knows my mother’s name and is interested in how she is doing and what her plans are for the day. She loves to go to the movies every day and has meals with her friends. Her apartment is lovely and feels like home. We recommend the Atria to all our friends who are looking for the next step in care for their parents.

My father has been living at Atria Kew Gardens in the memory care area. The staff are so loving and care for my father so well. I tried to care for him myself at home but it was such a struggle and when I made the decision to move him it was a difficult one. But I see now that I made the right choice and everyone has just been so helpful.
