  • Retreat/temporary stays 
    – Atria offers a respite (retreat) program for seniors who need assisted living services on a short-term basis. Atria Retreat permits seniors to test the waters of senior living. By allowing guests to stay for a short time in an Atria community, potential residents can decide if senior living is right for them. The retreat program is also an alternative to high-cost inpatient rehabilitation following an illness or surgery. Should a patient be ready to leave the hospital but not ready to go home, Atria offers the comforts of home and 24-hour assistance until they get back on their feet. All of our Retreat guests enjoy the same great amenities as our full-time residents, including delicious meals served daily, a full calendar of social activities, scheduled transportation service and more. 
  • Scheduled transportation to local appointments, errands and events 
    – Local scheduled transportation is available to residents for medical appointments, shopping, religious services and other desired local destinations. 
  • Selection of floor plans
  • Trained staff available 24 hours a day


  • Cafe offering refreshments and lighter fare
  • Club and volunteer opportunities 
    – Atria recognizes that being older doesn't mean being inactive. Our communities offer clubs and options for volunteer work at everywhere from local schools to homeless shelters. The volunteer program affords our residents the opportunity to share their talents and knowledge with the local community. Feeling needed is an important part of staying active and independent, and the volunteer program shows all who participate how necessary they are to the local community. 
  • Engage Life® Events Program 
    – Explore our events programming, tailored to nurture the mind, body and spirit of every resident. 
  • Pet-friendly environment 
    – We recognize pets are important members of the family. That's why our community allows them in residents' apartments. Moving to a new home doesn't have to mean leaving your furry friend behind – instead, they can enjoy the benefits of Atria with you.

A Message from Our Executive Director, Meg Franz
I chose to work at Atria Collwood because my true passion lies in helping families and making a positive difference in their lives. One of my favorite things about my work is sharing the benefits of community life, and how it’s possible to be independent and live in an engaging environment – you don’t have to live alone to maintain your independence. If you have questions about our community or would like to arrange a personal appointment, please contact me.
