Discover an Entirely New Look for Assisted and Senior Living in Irvine, CA

Along the banks of San Diego Creek, just a short distance from the Orange County coastline, Atria Golden Creek provides a progressive way of life for older adults. Our assisted living community recently underwent a $13 million renovation to enhance our living spaces and help us earn LEED® certification as an eco-friendly community. Whether dining alfresco with friends, indulging in our relaxing spa, or staying active in our custom fitness center, our residents enjoy many new opportunities to thrive in a fulfilling environment.


Our tenured, 24-hour staff stops at nothing to ensure a vibrant lifestyle for our community. We’re always prepared to offer discreet assistance whenever needed, and we also offer our Life Guidance® memory care neighborhood for residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia. With our dedicated staff and exciting new additions, many consider Atria Golden Creek to be the top choice for senior living in Irvine, California. We welcome you to visit us today to see more.

    – 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
  • 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. 
  • 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 spa 
    – We are pleased to offer a rejuvenating day spa where residents can receive manicures, pedicures and hairstyling.

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.

“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
“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
