I visited this facility

I went to Atria Bell Court Gardens, and what I didn?t like about this place is that it's kind of in the middle of an enormous medical complex, and it felt like a part of the medical complex, so that bothered me a little bit. Overall, it?s a beautiful place. I like their apartments, and they are wonderful. They have a beautiful pool, but I just didn?t like the location.

I loved Atria Bell Court Gardens; it was very nice. I think each of them there went out of their way; they were more than excellent. They all went out of their way and went more than the extra mile. I've worked in several care homes, and Atria Bell rocks; they're the best. They were like regular little apartments, they weren't like a room, and if they called for help, they got the caregivers there. It was beautiful and very well structured. I was just so impressed with the way they did things there. They had a calendar of activities, and they had it posted where everybody could see it. They gave me some complimentary cookies when I first came in, and those cookies tasted so good.

Atria Bell Court Gardens was very nice. My mom chose it because it was quite a bit smaller than the other facilities. The food was excellent. I would recommend this facility to others. It is just amazing. They had so many different physical and cultural activities. I was amazed and so was my mom. The grounds were very well maintained and beautiful.

I live in Atria Bell Court, and it’s a lovely place. It’s what was available, and it’s been very satisfactory. I would certainly recommend it to others if they have enough money.

Atria Bell Court Gardens was very pleasant. I had a very nice experience. The person who gave us a tour of the place pretty much explained all the facilities, the requirements that they had and a lot of the services that they offered. She gave us an overall view of the place and some financial information. Overall, it was a pretty nice place. What impressed me the most was the overall ambience of the place. The views were excellent. It was very well kept.

My mother was here a little over one year. I think it was the best option for her in Tucson but she needed to move to memory care. The grounds are beautiful, green with mature trees. It is great for people and dogs. It is very dog friendly and many residents have dogs.

It is an older building, but it has class. Apartments aren't fancy, no granite countertops or stainless appliances, but the rooms are plenty big and they have beautiful old wood doors everywhere. I never smelled a musty or urine smell in the hallways, like some other places.

They have a very nice and comfortable dining room. The dining room staff was mixed. Some experienced staff are wonderful but others, especially new staff, can be pretty bad about getting orders right and being friendly. The food is mixed. They have excellent soups and desserts but vegetables are just edible and entrees can be good or bad.

They do have some turnover in the staff, including the dining room, but almost all the staff are very friendly and many are older, too. Most of the residents are friendly and happy, too.

Atria has the potential to be a great retirement community. However they fail to maintain adequate or competent management. Consistency in service and the quality of service seems to be an ongoing issue. For the money, I would send my parents elsewhere.

Atria is an independent living facility and more expensive. They have beautiful gardens. They allow pets, and you smell urine in the carpeting from the pets when you walk around. The rooms have one bedroom, a living room, a teeny alcove kitchen, and a bathroom. They told me they have activities.

My parents apartment smelled like cigarette smoke, although the complex is supposed to be non-smoking. We complained and nothing was done. The housekeeping was supposed to be done every other week, but only happened occasionally when I called to check. They lost and messed up my parent's sheets and towles with those of other residents and I have had to buy new sets of sheets. Allow a lot of time if you want to ask a question or for any assistance at the fron desk. No one is very responsive or helpful. There are no ramps where there are stairs. One pays a lot just for a mediocre apartment and meals, and one can get very tired of eating in that same place every day. No way was there anything--food, ambiance, assistance--that made this place worth the cost--or the cost of replacing the linens. As soon as you need to hire in-home help, the costs sky rocket.

Provider Response

I am sorry to hear about your parents’ housekeeping difficulties and apologize for the inconvenience it has caused you. Your comments will be shared with the appropriate directors to ensure we are looking into the areas you mentioned for ways to improve.

I visited this facility

The Atria was excellent, very well-run, good food. It just didn't have assisted living. The staff is excellent. Beautiful apartments. The food was wonderful, it was like a 5-star restaurant. They have walking, bending, stretching. I really like the place, but I couldn't stay.

Provider Response

Atria Bell Court Gardens looks like my home. It is like a home and not institutional. I'm not too happy with the food, but everything else is 100%. All of the staff are very nice, very helpful, and friendly. I have a 600-plus-square feet apartment, and it is very nice. They have all kinds of exercises, classes, games, arts and crafts, making beads, same old things. You name it, they got it. If you are lonesome or bored here, it is your fault, not theirs.

Atria Bell Court Gardens is like a resort. The surroundings and the landscaping is very beautiful. It would be something like a place for someone with little to go and spend some time on a vacation. It's really a very beautiful place. They're also very nice there. The population there participates in the activities, and they feel that they're very active. It's a very stimulating place to be. I thought that was very nice. The rooms were very comfortable, and they have nice accommodation.

I visited this facility

Atria Bell Court Gardens was very nice. It's in a very nice location. I was picked up and brought there and the staff who picked me up was a wonderful person. She showed me the accommodations. They also showed me their activity room, exercise room and their library. They're all nice. However, the facility itself didn't seem to be decorated as fancy as other places. They had very plain decorations. I think they should consider purchasing better paintings to hang on the wall. Everything was beautiful, but it looked like they didn't spend any money on artwork. What they had were very cheap and out of proportion decorations. Also this facility would be too expensive for me. However, if anyone asks, I would recommend it. I did have a wonderful lunch at Atria. Their food was very good. They had an excellent chef.

I have been living in Atria Bell Court Gardens for two years now. It is in a nice location, which is just a block from Saint Joseph's Hospital and there are lots of doctors in the area. It is an old building with modern Tucson touch in it and it's beautiful. There are studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. We have games and outings. The operating staff was wonderful. The dining room personnel were great. However, there's no one on call twenty-four hours.
