Independent Living Reviews for The Atrium at Gainesville

February 15, 2021

By George

I am/was a resident of this facility

My wife and I are staying at The Atrium in Gainesville. At the present time, it doesn't look like we're moving anywhere else. We chose it for its architecture. It's a 5-story building and the construction is appealing. It's also convenient for shopping. We've been here for quite a while. We've been looking around for some place else, but it doesn't look like there's any other place that's better than this one. Some of the staff are great, some are not so great. Most of them try hard, some of them don't, but I think that's the usual thing. The rooms are fine, but it's the location that really got us. We can't find any place else that is as well located, both for shopping and for doctor needs. The food is average, but it is an excellent building.

Avoid this place - it is not a good place to retire. It once was good, but has declined in service and food quality over the past two year and is now a bad deal for the money they charge. Staff are noted for disrespect and rude treatment of residents. It is not really an independent living facility as claimed, at least in the kind of residents they accept. Many people with advanced dementia and other problems. But there is not enough staff to take proper care of them. The Atrium once had a good reputation, but it has gone so far downhill that it has lost its good rating. Stay away!

I toured The Atrium at Gainesville in person. I met some people that stay there. The tour was nice but it's very old and kinda rundown. The reason we didn't choose Atrium is because it's just independent. If you fall or break a hip, or you have a stroke and need more care, you're out. You can't stay there and you have to find another place to live. The staff weren't up the par. They didn't answer all the questions. They're not very informative. Actually, they weren't allowing anyone eating in the dining room at that time. People had to eat in their rooms because of Covid.

We had a virtual and in-person visit at The Atrium at Gainesville. They're handling things beautifully. We've been very happy so far. They're very attentive to our mother. Nobody can go anywhere because of the pandemic so she has to stay in her room most of the time, but they've been great about communicating. I haven't had a bad experience yet. It's very clean. There are no activities. They closed down the dining area for a while. When they were in their highest stage, they didn't even knock on their doors. They just delivered food to the residents. The residents weren't allowed to come out. They took all the chairs away, so they couldn't congregate, but they just now opened up a tiny bit of that. They couldn't dine in the dining hall, but now a few residents can make reservations. It's a very limited dining experience. The staff has been great. She seems to like the food, although it's the same as in the rehab. It's not fair to rate them on that because it's a pandemic and they can't have a restaurant open, so they can only serve one thing.

I like The Atrium at Gainesville very much. I like the pool, the size of the rooms, the large studio, and their one-bedroom. The people working there are nice, and the majority of the people that I met who are living there are fantastic people. However, I'm not too impressed with the chef. I have had two meals there and I wasn't too impressed with them. Other than that I really like the place. I need a place to swim to get my strength back. They also have machines you can use to work out, and a professional pool table. It's a really nice place.

My dad has moved into The Atrium at Gainesville. It is fine. I haven't had any complaints and he seems to be happy. I think he'd rather be home, but things seem to be going well. His apartment is clean and set up nicely. He eats in their dining room, and their food is fine. He hasn't complained. They offer bus service that will take you to doctor's appointments, they have social gatherings, they have a garden, and they have church services. They try to keep the residents engaged. However, some of the things are not quite set up for people with walkers and wheelchairs.

We liked The Atrium at Gainesville for my father-in-law. It's very nice. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and great. They had a whole activities calendar and lots of different things for them to do. The accommodations were very nice, good sized, and very homey; you feel like you're in an apartment, not a senior living facility. The dining area was beautiful. They had outside areas, a pool with a pool house, a big area in the center for parties and activities, they do tailgates for football games, there's dancing at night, and social hours. It's a very active community.

AARP meeting 4/24/19. Put in pool house. Dirty, bathroom dirty and one toilet not working. Facility not being maintained. Not a very good example of a place where I would want to live.

Provider Response

Hello, we are sad you did not enjoy the meeting space at Atrium at Gainesville. The restroom was in the middle of getting fixed when the space was being used, but is in full working order now. If you have additional comments please reach out to us.

The Atrium at Gainesville was very nice and everyone there seemed happy. There were a lot of people outside and down in the halls, instead of hiding in their apartments. It was clean, nice to look at, and very inviting. The apartment that they showed us was very nice. It's a place I could live in if I needed to. The one staff member that I saw was very nice and helpful, and answered all the questions that we had. All I know about their services is what they say they have. Everything sounded excellent.

I loved The Atrium at Gainesville. It offered everything. The food was great. There were plenty of activities for the residents. Everyone there appeared to be happy. The grounds were beautiful. Everything was very nice. The apartment we saw was beautiful, very clean, and had a very nice layout. I would definitely recommend it.

I agree with Fredsmom. Once the 6 months is up, rent is raised , You will end up paying 500-600 PER WEEK. Rent is Over 2,000 month No one around at night. Elevators are small, SLOW, broken. Always putting notes on your door asking for Christmas money. With the amount you pay, you DO NOT get back the value. People knocking on door, staff comes in with key any time. View the back parking lots.. FOOD, no words on that mess. No words. If they know you coming to look, they do a stage, a show. Really think about it before going here.

Provider Response

Hello, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We generally have yearly rate increases to accommodate for inflation and to ensure we are hiring the best staff for our communities, all of which is communicated before a lease is signed. As an independent living community, we are not required to have 24/7 staff on premises. If you would like to discuss your concerns further, please feel free to reach out to the local team. Thank you

Place is a disaster waiting to happen. No manager or maintenance on premises at night. So many what ifs? These seniors would be at a loss. What if a fire? Those that could even hear the fire alarm would have no one there to direct them on what to do. Food is horrible. Presentation is unflattering and everything is prepared with tons of onions and peppers! Do not recommend for anyone!!

Provider Response

The Atrium at Gainesville was a Holiday property that was a lot older, big, and nice. They had a swimming pool and large rooms. The cabinets were a little bit dated, but they had a lot of storage in the rooms. The residents were coming and going and seemed to be very independent and very happy. Physicians can come in, like a toe doctor comes in every two weeks, which is great; a urologist comes in once a quarter, and a heart doctor comes in once a month. They had a special room for the physicians with a desk, a table, and an exam table. You could also get a ride to your own doctor.

The Atrium at Gainesville was a beautiful place, and we liked it. If my other sister and I needed a place, we would like to go there. It was clean, light, and airy. The people were really nice. The apartments that I saw were very nice and clean. We were able to try their food, and I was impressed with the different choices and balanced diets.

I really liked The Atrium at Gainesville, but my mother-in-law needed more care than they were prepared to give. They had activities like bingo and musicians. They also had an exercise room and a little store that was open for limited hours where you could get things like toothpaste and candy. I felt that the residents were very happy there. They seemed to be friendly and out and about, not stuck in the rooms, and the staff members we met were very nice. We had a good lunch there.

Not all that,- needs lots care.. Food is really in poor taste and quality. Rent goes up ALWAYS. Back parking lot is dirty, Elevators smell's and very small, elevators OFTEN do not work, No manger on site after hours, no security. Could do a lot better for the amount of rent.

The Atrium at Gainesville is upbeat, and I think that’s what my parents need right now. It was real friendly, and everybody was excited to be there. They had lots of things to do. Every time I went there, the old folks were doing a lot of stuff and having a great time. The staff that I saw and talked to while I was there was wonderful. We went with a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, and it was newly painted, very clean, and had fresh carpet. We couldn’t have asked for a better 2-bedroom, 2-bath for my parents. I’m only 15 minutes away. If there’s a problem, I’m very close by. They did show me the menus, and they looked very good.

The Atrium at Gainesville's apartments were very nice. They probably had the most outdoor activities of any of the communities I’ve been to. They took a group of us on a tour and ended the tour with lunch, so they kept the dining room open for us when everybody else had eaten and gone to other activities. It was a nice size and very well appointed. The food was good, and service was very fast. There were only 17 of us, so we almost had a waiter each. They had a good variety with everything from salad to pasta and shrimp and anything in between.

I liked the Atrium at Gainesville. The staff was wonderful, very caring, and very professional. It was a great location to get to and from. The community was very nice, and the food was great. For the age group that they were dealing with, the activities were adequate. There didn’t seem to be any actual physical activities other than the swimming pool, so there might be some needs for some additional physical activities.

We visited The Atrium at Gainesville, and it was very nice. It was great. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were nice, and it was reasonable, but the only thing is, all of Mom’s doctors are in Jacksonville, so she would have to change all her physicians to go to Gainesville. I really don’t want to do that. Nevertheless, I told my sister I wouldn’t mind living there. They had lot of activities going on while we were there, and they even invited us for lunch. The cafeteria was nice, the room was very nice, and they had elevators. It was like a condominium-type thing. The Atrium at Gainesville was very nice.

We're at the Atrium at Gainesville, and we moved in last March. We have a two-bedroom unit with two bathrooms, huge walk-in closets, and a walk-in shower. Cable, phone service, electricity, and water are provided. We get three meals a day, and the food is pretty good. The chef is Puerto Rican, so you have to acquire a taste for a lot of pork and chicken. There are very few red meat items. They could improve on having a more diversified menu. There is an exercise room and a huge library. They have an activities board; you couldn't do all the activities in a month if you tried.

The last place we visited was The Atrium at Gainesville, which is where my mother-in-law would stay for three months. They were the least expensive and willing to let her try to stay there for three months. They supply three meals a day. It’s a very clean place, but I think it was built back in the '80s, so it was kind of dated. The apartments were of a nice size, but the kitchens were old.

I had a friend who lived at The Atrium for a couple of years. It was a nice community with a lot of people. The staff seemed to be very caring. I didn’t spend extended time there, but I appreciated the fact that they tried to find interesting things for the residents to do and think about. My friend was in a small, private room that seemed to have all that she needed at the time. Overall, she found everyone there friendly, and she liked it while she was there.

I visited The Atrium at Gainesville. It was absolutely gorgeous. The complex itself was beautiful. There was a little shopping there of toiletries and food. They had everything you could possibly need without leaving the grounds. I did have lunch there, and the food was delicious. The place was really great, but I did not choose it. For me, the unit was smaller. It was a one-bedroom, one-bath. You don't have a washer/dryer inside the unit.

We went to The Atrium at Gainesville ,and the place was very nice. The rooms were very nice, but it wasn’t for us. I would call it a retirement community more than an assisted living facility. The dining area was nice, but it was small. It just didn’t have a homey and comfortable feeling to it. They didn’t have the facilities that I had wanted for my husband; he has Alzheimer's.

My mom is at Atrium at Gainesville. We chose this place because it gave her more independence as she wanted that. They cook excellent meals. The apartments were very nice. They have call bells if anything happens. They have a plethora of activities. They have a swimming pool, and they do aquatic activities. They have entertainment. They also have buses, and they go to the malls in the area.

We did find and put a deposit down in the Atrium today. My sister is not getting it until October 1st. It was affordable, and it looked nice. She's going to have a large studio apartment. The staff was nice and gave us all the information we needed. Meals are included. The food is very good. I like the location.

I was able to visit Atrium of Gainesville when I was looking for an assisted living facility for my mom. It's a nice facility and there was nothing I didn’t like about them. Their rooms are of nice size. The staff were really knowledgeable with regards to the facility. I am not really familiar with the names of the activities, but they do have several activities that is on their board that you can choose from.

My mother-in-law is really happy at Atrium Gainesville. We were surprised because of course nobody wants to move. She has a 1-bedroom apartment. She just needed having somebody cook her meals and knowing that somebody was around 24-hours a day in case she fell. But other than that, she doesn't need any assistance. It's really nice. If you don't want what's being served, there's enough variety from the menus, so you're not getting the same thing every day. However, their swimming pool is not really clean and their hot tub is so nasty. They use the swimming pool for exercise class. It should be cleaner. But that's the only thing. I've been really happy with it, so is my mother-in-law. We were concerned about her because she slowed down physically. But the physical therapy there is wonderful and that really improved her stamina.
