  • 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 local transportation 
    – Local scheduled transportation is available to residents for medical appointments, shopping, religious services and other desired local destinations. 
  • Trained staff available 24 hours a day


  • 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. 
  • Computers 
    – Our community provides computers with Internet access specifically for resident use. Staying in touch with family and friends and staying connected to the world is important to our residents, and we want to make it easy to shop online, research, play games and more. 
  • Engage Life programming 
    – Explore our events programming, tailored to nurture the mind, body and spirit of every resident. 
  • Fitness center 
    – We recognize the importance of your physical and emotional well-being. And we also know that regular exercise is key to good health. That's why our community offers an in-house fitness center with exercise equipment designed with older people in mind. 
  • Media room with large-screen TV 
    – No matter what your interests are (movies, sports, musicals, shows, etc.), enjoy them on the large-screen television in our media room. 
  • Pets welcome 
    – 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. 
  • Salon and barber shop 
    – Whether you're looking for a new hairstyle or a haircut, you will love the convenience of our in-house hair salon and barber shop.

Executive Director
A Message from our Executive Director - Wendy Winnick-Baskin
I began working for Atria Darien in 1996 before construction even began. More than 15 years later, I still love walking into the building every day. Life at Atria Darien is an extension of the lives and lifestyles our residents enjoyed prior to moving here. Residents and families tell us they chose our community over others because of the friendliness, the convenience and the attractive grounds. Professionals who work with older adults tell us they prefer Atria Darien over others because of our employees’ caring attitudes, professionalism and the upbeat atmosphere. The sum of the parts equals a very happy whole!

“My wife and I have lived at Atria Darien for nine years, and we’ve been part of the Darien community for decades. The atmosphere here is ideal for us. We’re close to family and friends, and the staff is always accessible and flexible in their willingness to help any way they can.” 
Ed, Atria Darien resident
“I’m greatly impressed with the variety of events offered here at Atria Darien. The entire staff is wonderful, too. They’re all so cordial and affectionate!” 
Clarice, Atria Darien resident
