Independent Living Reviews for Atria Bell Court Gardens

I visited this facility

Atria Bell Court Gardens is absolutely beautiful and wonderful. It's a very restful and quiet place. They have a gourmet chef and their food is superb. It's top of the line. They have a large pool and a full-time therapist available for people who can't go into the pool by themselves. I loved it also because of the atmosphere. I also met the chef, and the executive director is really good and outgoing. They have a bigger gym room with a gym instructor and classes you can take.

Atria Bell Court Gardens was lovely. It's an old mansion and relatively small compared to other places. You can have pets there, which is a big plus for me. They provide meals and have little stations around the facility with fresh fruits, sandwiches, coffee, and tea, that you can get 24 hours a day. Their dining setup was lovely. It's a beautiful thing. The people thought the food was really good. I was there when they had a Labor Day meal. They had a real chef there and people who come around and serve water, tea, or coffee. There were tablecloths on the table, and the room was carpeted. Some lights went out in the elevator while I was there and in minutes, there was somebody there to fix them even though it was a holiday.

I liked Atria Bell Court Garden and thought it was very nice. The only thing that was wrong with it was they did not have many levels of care. The apartments were very nice. The food was delicious. They had all kinds of things to offer, plus we had wine with our lunch, which was very pleasant.

Atria was fabulous, it was amazing, and that's where I want to go. It's a beautiful place with a beautiful setting. It's an old hacienda, an old ranch, and they have taken great pains to make it very successful. We had the opportunity to eat lunch in the dining area, and it was just phenomenal. Everything was impeccable, and they allow pets.

I liked Atria Bell Court Gardens a lot. It was like there was a little extra sincerity. I also liked the old mansion that was kind of the main portion of it. I was vegan, and it sounded like they would be willing to work with my diet. I did not see a whole bunch of people out and doing things at that time I was there, but the things that they showed me, they had an assortment of exercise and other activities which I thought I would be happy with. They made me a little stir fry special, and that was very nice. They didn’t have vegan items on the menu, but they sounded like they would be willing to try to make sure there would be something that I could eat.

Everything was nice and new at Atria. There were so many people and so many nice things going on. You could just do anything you wanted to. There were so much going on and much to do for people of my age. The girls who talked to us knew what was going on to show us. We weren’t left alone at all. I really enjoyed it. The food was so pleasant, and everything was pleasantly presented to us. There’s so much going on. The rooms that I saw were so nice I could live in one, and I love their bathrooms. Everything was clean and looked practically brand new. The kitchen was great. I was very pleased.

We were most impressed with Bell Court Gardens. They do not have casetas; they only have apartments, but the apartments are very generous in size, sunny, and airy. The whole facility was extremely well-maintained. We were very impressed with the grounds and the facility overall. The people that are currently living there generally looked, behaved, and felt they are happy there. They are very social and outgoing. In the dining room, the food was spectacular; there was a lot of talk and a bunch of people. There was no indication of unhappiness or sadness there at all. I was very impressed with Bell Court Gardens.

Everything about Atria Bell was very nice during our visit. The rooms could be updated with paint, quality, and design. The rest of the building was lovely. Everything in the dining room was pleasant. The food, people, and amenities were lovely.

My family member has been there for 9+ years. Was once a wonderful location with many caring staff. Since the parent company has gone public, there has been a marked reduction in services and the once standard amenities. Cuts in activities budget/staff, dining staff cuts, restrictive local travel, etc. Local staff can not make decisions without home office approval. All for profit and decisions are based on dividends to share holders. And rest assured, an annual rate increase well above inflation. Security has been a concern. Master keys handed out, etc. My family member had a medical emergency that required an ambulance. While at the hospital for tests, the apartment was entered and all jewelry was taken. Atria did not want to file a police report as the items were likely 'misplaced'. Police report was filed but the jewelry was long gone. I have on numerous occasions, seen the doors propped open with a rock or other item with no staff or resident to be found. Once it was a member of the cleaning staff's pen to hold the door open. Access is quite easy on most days to doors that are not monitored. All in all, I believe it is still one of the better facilities in Tucson if they would turn back the clock and provide value for those on a fixed income and not totally consider how it appears on a profit statement.

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.

Provider Response

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.

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.

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.

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.
