Atria Carmichael is clean, bright, and had large ceilings. It’s a nice place with lots of care for the residents. The staff is great and have been very good to us. We observed the residents eating, and it was very nice.

Atria Carmichael Oaks was great and had very good service. The people were friendly. The food is good, and the rooms were attractive. It also happens to be two minutes away from our house, which adds a huge amount of happiness. They have exercise classes, bus trips to grocery stores and shopping, and book clubs. The staff is very helpful and have been very kind to her. They all know her by her name. She’d say everybody treats her well and that she’s very happy. We ate there as part of the first introduction, and it was very nice with a nice menu. It’s attractive.

My stepdad is in memory care of Atria Carmichael Oaks. They’re very nice too. I like the way they get the people to interact with them. They have them play bingo and they play little games with them like naming all different kinds of dogs. They bring them out into the living area. They get them up, get them dressed and get them to interact, so they’re not just sleeping all day. Last week, he got diagnosed with congestive heart failure, so now they’re bringing in hospice and so he is getting extra care, but they’re right on top of it. They’re keeping him very clean and they change his bed when he has accidents. They’re very good staff there. They’re very friendly.

Atria Carmichael Oaks had very nice surroundings. The person that showed us around was very polite and very knowledgeable. The only reason why I did not pick that one was because my sister would have a second- or third-floor apartment, and I wanted her on the ground floor. They had a very nice library, outdoor lounge, and areas where the residents could walk around and sit outside. The food was very good.

We liked that the size of the rooms was a little bigger at Atria Carmichael Oaks. They offered a meal, but we didn’t eat there. However, we did observe that the food looked and smelled good.

I toured Atria Carmichael Oaks. I wasn’t really impressed by the grounds. I had my grandson with me when we looked at it, and he goes, “No I didn’t want to go to the hospital.” I didn’t really like this place. The rooms were smaller and weren’t very accessible.

Atria is a lovely place. My friend has been there for quite awhile now. Their dining facility is wonderful. It is just like going out to a restaurant. My friend’s room is lovely too. She has a sliding glassdoor that goes to the garden area there. It is very nice. The staff is very nice. They have a theater once a week, and then they have the church services, which I think is very nice for the residents. You can also have your little doggie or little cats there if you want.

Atria was an older facility but nice and I liked it. I didn’t eat with them but I looked at the dining area. It’s close to my house, convenient and on a great location.

Carmichael Oaks was really good, but I didn’t have any room in my apartment, so I had to find something bigger. Before Atria took over, the people that worked there were really wonderful. It’s kind of cold now.

Although they were very nice during the visit, it's just that the apartment wasn't what my mother-in-law wanted. She wanted a first floor studio apartment, and they didn't have that at that time. So they may have been a very nice facility, but that was the drawback. Atria Carmichael Oaks just wasn't a lively looking place to us. Maybe we went at a very quiet time, but the apartment wasn't what she was looking for. The person that took us on a tour was quite nice, but it just was more sedated. It seemed too sedated, and she likes activities. She likes to do things, and they may have had it all, but on first appearance, it wasn't quite what we wanted. It didn't have a studio on the first floor, so she would have had to go up an elevator, and it was more expensive, so that was the drawback. Not only did they not have what she wanted on the right floor, but the studio that they had costs more.

My mother has been in Atria Carmichael Oaks before, and we took her back here. The staff is very good. We had a few ups and downs, but she has Alzheimer's, so she is not an easy patient. So far, it's working out OK, but it has only been a week. Her room is private; it is not spacious, but it is doable. It's as big as any of the rooms we saw at other facilities. She likes the food. The dining area is very small. Everything in the memory care is very contained, which makes it easy for them to move around so they don't get lost. They do take them out for a drive once a week into the mountains.

The one closest to me is Atria, and I even negotiated with them. They sent me the monthly activities -- all the things that are available for you. They got everything. They even have trips to take you to the stores and to wherever you need to go, and they take me to church. On one night, you could play poker, and they have Bingo night and movies. They invited me to a meal, and the food was very good. They've got a chef there by the name of Adam. He sat at my table and talked to me. I thought it was very nice, and so were the people. The staff was great; they got a good staff.

Atria Carmichael Oaks was OK, but I didn't like the floor plans of their apartments. This place really needs renovating. It was old and dark. They were just not well-done; they were kind of cheap. Safety-wise, everything seemed OK. They have a lot of improving to do.

It was very difficult to find parking at Atria Carmichael Oaks. It took me 15 minutes to find a parking space. I looked at the menu for the dining hall, and it was not very impressive.

Atria Carmichael Oaks was awful. My mother-in-law was there for almost five years. They had a lot of activities, which was good for the residents. After dinner, there was really nothing for the residents to do other than to go back to their rooms. Their apartments were nice. You had to bring your own furniture. The food was OK -- not the best. The communication between the staff and the family was awful. After hours, there was nobody to answer the phone. If you leave a message, they do not call you back. It was just very hard to reach them. They do not bother to notify you if there were any problems. When they sent my mother-in-law to the hospital by herself because she fell in her room, they didn't notify me. I didn't find out until the next night that she was taken to the hospital. When I asked them why they didn't call me, they had nothing to say. They wouldn't even look at me.

Atria Carmichael Oaks had more accommodations and activities for the people. The help was very conscientious. They were doing a superb job in keeping that place pleasant as well. The rooms were wonderful and very lovely. I would definitely recommend this facility to others.

Atria Carmichael Oaks absolutely was gorgeous. A little high-priced, but for the care we are getting, I am sure it was very reasonable for what is out there. It seemed like all their assisted living was kind of in a general area, and they had a lot of things to do, places to go, right there in that area not having to do a lot of walking. To me, it was rather pricey. And, again, it is not that you are not getting what you pay for so I don't want to put mom here, but for us to look at that, it was a vast increase from what we are paying now.

The Atria Carmichael Oaks was very nice. The facility was nice, and their grounds were very nice; they had woods in the back and everything -- very beautiful grounds. It was very clean and very nice, and everything was upgraded. I believe it is a fairly new facility.

The Atrium of Carmichael was referred to us by the agency. The staff was very helpful and very forthcoming about what is going on there. We decided to have mom in this facility, but she didn’t want to do that. I did have lunch there, and everything was very nice.

Atria Carmichael Oaks was absolutely beautiful. I have a friend who is also living there. I visited, and it had a lovely atmosphere. It was very quiet and pleasant. The décor was very home-like. The dining room was pretty much like a restaurant, but service was not that great. They had a new waitress, and she wasn't very happy with her job, and the food was so-so. It was not bad, but it was not excessively good, either. The apartments were very comfortable. They were very open with lots of light, small but very well set up for the person to feel like she is living in an apartment while she is in assisted living. It was just a very, very nice environment as far as living conditions are concerned. I found the people very much concerned about my friend's unhappiness about some of the services she received.

I chose Atria Carmichael Oaks for my dad because it is the best value for the cost. It has the largest room for the best price, and actually, it is the closest to us, too. The employees' attitudes are fine. The room is pretty much comfortable, nicer, and bigger. The food is all right; sometimes it is really good and sometimes it is fine. They have activities, but my dad does not participate in a whole lot of them.

My mother is at Atria in an independent care apartment. That is an awesome place. She eats so well. She could eat anytime she wants. They have a full breakfast, full lunch, and full dinner and you get two or three choices of entrees at each meal. If you don't like that, you can look on the other side of the menu and pick what you want. They have up to 10 activities a day, including exercise. She is so happy there. I call it the Taj Mahal of senior living. Her girlfriend moved there, and another friend is moving over there now. So she's got a lot of people who have come, following her over there.

Atria was nice and very clean. It was a little more monitored, and the apartments were bigger. They had ducks in the pond, but I just didn’t see a fun life for my mom. I didn’t see many people, and they did not seem as happy.

Atria Carmichael Oaks doesn’t stink when you walk in the door. The facility is beautiful. It is decorated in a fashion that makes it feel like home. The staff are wonderful. They are very helpful and friendly. They address any issue with your room or your apartment that you have. They accommodate and change with the community, so they have a community meeting. They have a really good person who is very personable who transports the residents to shopping areas. They also plan outings. They have all activities in-house, especially for the assisted living side, for those people who are not quite mobile. Their food is just excellent, and they provide food anytime. Their rooms are large enough for quite a bit of furniture. The bedroom has a queen size bed, two dressers, and a walk-in closet. The bathroom is nice and big and very accessible. They also have balconies, and the grounds are beautiful. The price was excellent.

Atria Carmichael Oaks was beautiful, very nice and pretty. The staff were very welcoming and were really good about seeing to it that the medications were delivered timely. They just seemed to connect. However, the price kept us from moving my mother-in-law there. The fund we had cannot sustain her.

The lady that showed us around Carmichael Oaks was very nice. They had backyards and patios, nice dining room, and overall a clean facility. I liked that my mom could have a two bedroom apartment with a little patio, that way she could have her dog, and also a backyard with a sitting area. They had a lot of activities and everything you would want. We were impressed and would probably have mom there if she was ready.

Carmichael Oaks Senior Living, This RCFE is one of the highet of reccomendations I can give. There communiyt Marketing Director Virginia and Denise have been employees there for quite some time. There home facility is always clean, they are both very educated in geriatric care as well as the care for those senior afflicted with Dementia and Alzheimer's. Always when arriving to there location you are greeted with a smile, a helping hand, from there front desk administrator to there residential caregivers they are professional, helpful, and always hands on with there seniors. There dining experience on a daily basis is one of the utmost service oriented I have witnessed. Just from the smiles of there residents to the fact that they even go above and beyond to provide there own residents with name tags as some represent what they call ambassadors and they greet you and tell you stories of why they love the community they live in. I would place my own parents here any day of the week, the compassion the understanding and the assistance at any given time you enter this community is a five star community!
