Independent Living Reviews for Holiday at the Atrium

January 18, 2019

I visited this facility

Holiday at the Atrium was great for independent living. It fosters to anybody who will be looking for more of an activity and a social atmosphere. It had a big atrium and it had a nice feel to it. They had a lot of activities going on, but they do not offer any enhanced care. The rooms were very nice. I had no problems with it. The staff did a very good job. They spent a lot of time with us, and they were very personable. We were there during ice cream socials.

Holiday at the Atrium was very disappointing, the residents looked like a group of people just sitting there and waiting to die. The person who gave us the tour was very accommodating and upbeat, she was trying to make the place seem bright, but it really wasn’t. We saw the folks that were eating there, and it looked fine. They also said we could stay there for two days to see what it was like, but we declined. Some of the amenities include a laundry area, a room setup for interdenominational religious services, and so on. The nature of the folks that were there just seemed really elderly, and the living units looked more like an old motel that was made up for someone to stay in.

Provider Response

Hi Tony, we are sorry to hear you had a negative experience at Holiday at the Atrium. We strive to help older independent people live better. Our residents are served three meals a day, provided scheduled activities in and out of the community, and daily housekeeping and maintenance is taken care of. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we can improve. We hope you will consider us again in the future. Take care.

The people that showed us around Holiday at the Atrium were wonderful, but it really wasn't what I was looking for. It was like a nursing home. I liked the fact that they have the dining room and it was like a hotel. They have activities and they take residents on trips. The staff was excellent, very helpful, very nice, and showed us everything.

Holiday at the Atrium was not for my mother because of the open area was so sunny; my mother couldn't handle that because she gets migraines. The rooms were nice, though. The other community had more of a homey appearance, and Holiday at the Atrium had more of an apartment appearance that was not that comfortable feeling. It didn't meet my mother's needs.

My experience with Holiday was very good. However, the apartments were small, and I did not like the coliseum-style complex because I was afraid of heights. The staff was very nice. There was an exercise room, and they played games, but it just not comparable with the other independent living place I visited. The price was a little higher than others, and it was about a half an hour ride away.

We like the location of the Holiday at the Atrium; it is not far from our home. We like the fact that mom has freedom still and she has her own apartment, not just a tiny room. We like the personnel; they are very nice people to work with. She gets to keep her dog, the food is fantastic, and it is a good location for her to be able to get to her doctors also because they have bus transportation. We had to ask quite a few times to get the shower head changed and a few other maintenance things to be done. All three meals are provided. They do the light housekeeping and all the cooking. They have a lot of things every month. Last month it was Mardi Gras, this month it is St. Patrick's Day, and a lot of their meals are themed to that. They do bingo, they do all kinds of different things like bus trips, they are going to the community college for lunch this Thursday, and they not only have them participate at the facility, but they take them out to participate as well.

I toured Holiday at the Atrium. The people seemed to be very happy. There were a lot of people there in walkers, wheelchairs, and scooters. It was very interesting except they didn't have assisted living. Everybody was eating happily there, so the food must be good. It was probably the cheaper place to stay because it's independent living with meals.

Holiday at the Atrium was plain depressing to walk into. The facility looked old; it looked like at one time it might have been a hotel, and they took the guest rooms and made them into apartment type rooms. The average age was 82. The healthiest person we saw was using a walker; this was an assisted living place and not an independent living.

Provider Response

I visited the Atrium, and it was very nice. All of their balconies face indoors, and the cleanliness seems pretty the same as here. I talked to a couple of people, and they seemed nice. I did not like their location; it's too far, and that's why I decided not to go there. Other than that, it's a nice community.

My grandmother has been in Holiday at the Atrium for nine months now, and we love it. We like everything about it so far. It doesn't feel like it's a place for that kind of living -- it's more like a hotel. They have a church on the premises, and she does the church activities. I have tried eating there, and it's OK.

I visited Holiday at the Atrium, which was all glass. The brightness impressed me when I walked in. It was a superb place if you were looking for independent-living, but I wasn?t. The rooms and apartments were beautiful. The dining room was downstairs, and it was beautiful because it was very bright. They have transportation everywhere. and they have a hairdresser on staff. They try to keep the elderly busy. They have an ice cream social on Wednesday afternoons.

Holiday at the Atrium is a nice facility. It was recommended to us by somebody. We went to see if we liked it, and we did. I like the atmosphere of the dining area. Even though they are enclosed, they have a sky light, so there is always light. The staff are very nice and friendly people. They offer yoga, exercise, pool, bingo, music; they offer almost everything.

My mom was at the Holiday at the Atrium because she liked it when we went there. The people were very nice. She had her own apartment with bedroom, bath, living area, kitchen and a balcony. The kitchen was designed such that she cooked if she wanted. Shewould sit and have coffee in her balcony. They also allowed pets like cats, dogs and birds as long as they were kept in your own room. There were various activities like exercise, movies, spiritual meetings, outings, shoppings, and they could also take you to appointments. She was comfortable there.

The Atrium is very good. They make sure you have everything you need as far as food and the physical setup of the place. The rooms here are bigger and the people in it are also very nice. I have no complaints about the food. It's been very good and they give you the main choice for each meal and then they give you five other choices. There was a lot of card playing and a movie everyday. They also have yoga and exercises like that. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday they have live music. We asked the people who worked there and the people who lived there how long they've been there and the people have been here 5 to 7 years and the managers are here a couple of years at least. I think it's excellent.

My mother-in-law's residence in Holiday at the Atrium is just beautiful. In this facility, they provide her three meals a day and some housecleaning services. Their food is good and they do have activity program for the residents. It is a very good facility.
