Discover Vibrant Assisted Living and Innovative Memory Care in Irvine, California

Along the banks of San Diego Creek, just a short distance from the Orange County coastline, Atria Golden Creek is a thoughtfully designed community where older adults enjoy an active lifestyle with just the right amount of discreet support. We recently completed a $13 million renovation to not only enhance our living spaces and amenities, but to help us earn LEED® certification as an eco-friendly community. 

Whether dining al fresco with friends, indulging in our relaxing spa or working out in the fitness center, our residents enjoy abundant opportunities to thrive and participate – and our tenured, 24-hour staff is dedicated to creating a fulfilling and supportive environment. 

Innovative Memory Care in Irvine

In addition to independent living and assisted living options, we are also proud to offer innovative care for Irvine seniors dealing with the challenges of dementia. Our welcoming Life Guidance® memory care neighborhood provides an intimate, structured setting where residents receive more personalized care and attention from specially trained staff.

  • 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.

Executive Director
A Message from Our Executive Director, Phill Barkow
For the past 20 years, I’ve been lucky to build a career doing what I love – helping older people live well. Our residents have so much to contribute, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to spend time with them each day, listening to their stories and learning from their life experiences.

I’m also thankful to lead a compassionate staff of professionals who are driven to serve others. Together, we are committed to creating a warm, inviting community where older adults can enjoy the lifestyle they’ve always known. If you would like to schedule a visit, please contact me. I’d love to meet you and your family.

“I’ve lived at Atria Golden Creek with my wife for nine years, and I haven’t found anything to complain about.” 
Bud, Atria Golden Creek resident
“For me, Atria Golden Creek is the ideal place to spend my 90s. The apartments here are comfortable, and we enjoy delicious, varied gourmet food prepared by a wonderful chef and his team. All the residents here are enjoying their lives while taking part in well-planned daily activities. I wouldn't want to be any other place.” 
Anita, Atria Golden Creek resident
“Transitioning from a single family home we lived in for 32 years to an apartment half the size was very emotional. But with the helpful, caring and understanding staff here at Atria Golden Creek, it was much easier. We are very happy living here. We have made so many new friends and know we made the right choice at the right time in our lives.” 
Marilyn and Bob, Atria Golden Creek residents
