Atria Almaden in San Jose, CA
4.5

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 .

  • Palliative and hospice care
  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision
