Dad has been in Atria Tamalpais Creek for two months now. We chose it because of its location, and it is one of the best facilities I have seen. The staff is very friendly and seems to be very experienced. They care a lot about him. I like the ratio of staff to residents. They have a small number of people for every staff member. I have eaten there at every meal, and the food is excellent. The rooms that I see are individual. They have their own room, which is very clean, new, and very nice. They have activities in the memory unit, like lectures in the arts, they do tai chi, they go on field trips, and it's very nice.

I visited this facility

Atria was very nice and had a lounge feeling to it. They just remodeled the apartments and it feels a little bit like a hotel but nice. The one bedroom feels bigger because they had cathedral ceilings. They have a restaurant which is open and a bistro where people from the outside can come and have lunch or dinner.

I visited this facility

Atria seemed to be fairly ordinary. I didn't see anything special about it. We did have lunch there and it was quite nice and pleasant. Nothing to write home about.

At first Atria at Tamalpais Creek seemed to be a great place for my Dad. Nice people working there, good food, beautiful surroundings, relaxed and not crowded. The sales person who we were talking to about my dad moving in sounded interested in his wellbeing both socially and physically. Immediately after he moved in, she evaded questions about the facility, I.E. basic questions about his medication management, services provided, special dietary needs and how they could be met, general questions about the facility, and treated my family "rudely". After a few months my Dad's needs increased, and we began paying for higher levels of care. It quickly became painfully obvious that Atria was incapable of assessing his increasing needs and reacting to those changes. It routinely takes over 10 minutes for them to respond when he pushes the call button to request assistance. In case of an actual emergency, that could be the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, because of their incompetence at Atria, we are moving my Dad after only 6 months to another facility nearby that charges less and provides a higher level of care. As an assisted living facility that provides 3 squares and a cot, Atria at Tamalpais Creek is fine. If you are hoping for more, go elsewhere.

On the positive side, the grounds are beautiful, clean and quite lovely. The food is great and the activities offered are also sufficient. However--the care for my father, who currently lives there--is totally deficient, despite the $2100.00 above and beyond the almost $5,000.00 rental for his tiny studio apartment. We are paying for a variety of increased needs since his recent hospitalization, and on top of paying Atria, we are paying $200.00 a day to an outside caregiver to come in and make sure my father is getting what he needs. By all accounts--from the Kaiser Physical Therapist, Kaiser Nurse, Kaiser Social Worker and Kaiser OT, not to mention the testimonies of the in-home care layer that we are paying extra for--Atria is a disaster. My father pushes his button and no one comes. He pushes again--nothing. 20 minutes or more...nothing. A meeting with the Executive Director resulted in many apologies, acceptance of responsibility for not fulfilling duties...and yet, once again this week...the SAME. We are now actively looking for a place that actually does what it says it will do. My take is that Atria is cutting costs by not having sufficient staff. We are documenting all the breaches in service and will be taking steps soon.

PROS: Most of the staff are pleasant all the time CON: Most are not trained to care for aging residents who invariably require more care the longer they reside there CON: Training is brief, at the onset of being hired. CON: Frequently understaffed for the number of residents. PROS: Building and grounds are clean CONS: Frequent staff turnover PROS: Lots of activities available for residents (shopping, movies, drive, art shows, art classes, exercise, games, etc) CONS: Additional fees above base adds up quickly. Review bill each month for hidden charges.
