    – 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


  • Cafe with complimentary snacks and beverages
  • Engage Life programming 
    – Explore our events programming, tailored to nurture the mind, body and spirit of every resident. 
  • 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.

Executive Director
A Message from Our Senior Executive Director, Bill Lawson
I’ve worked in health care for more than 16 years as a dietary manager, social worker and administrator. What I like best about my role today is the opportunity to work with seniors. I enjoy connecting with them, being someone they can count on. I like the continuous change, and there are new challenges every day. What sets Atria Encinitas apart from other communities is the warm feeling you get when you enter our community. The staff is happy and, in turn, our residents are happy. Come for a visit and experience the feeling yourself.

“I like the interaction of our community and wanted to be a part of it, so I became a Resident Ambassador. I like meeting and greeting new people and making them feel comfortable.” 
Cynthia Y., Atria Encinitas resident
“The big things for me are the variety of activities and the opportunities to learn. It’s not only learning a new game, skill or information, it’s learning about the people who live and work here, too. I just love it!” 
Orvil M., Atria Encinitas resident
"Atria Encinitas is a delightful place to live. I’ve made many friends and had some great conversations. I love the activities here.” 
Bertha, Atria Encinitas resident
