  • 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
  • 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, Tamra Schmutzler
I’ve always had a deep respect for older adults. Gaining wisdom and perspective from those who’ve lived through so many different experiences is inspiring; that’s why spending time with our remarkable residents and hearing their stories is the best part of my job. And I am fortunate to be surrounded by an impressive team – I can’t say enough good things about them. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have about our community. I’d be delighted to welcome your family to ours.

“Atria Hillsdale is such a great place. We couldn’t have found a more caring and friendly home for Mom. The family atmosphere is wonderful, and the staff is dedicated to making life enjoyable and safe for the residents.” 
Helena and Richard, daughter and son-in-law of Atria Hillsdale resident Maria
“My mom has been at Atria Hillsdale for a year now and also came for a respite stay in the past. She decided to come back and stay because the care staff takes good care of her, the kitchen staff is very accommodating and the activities are very fun. But what it truly comes down to is the compassion the entire community has that makes my mom feel very comfortable and happy. As a daughter, that is the most important thing.” 
Nadia, daughter of Nelly, Atria Hillsdale resident
“Thanks to everyone at Atria for making our mom’s 90th birthday celebration such a huge success. It’s just another example of how Atria truly cares about its residents. That’s why our mom has chosen to live there for the past six years. She would like to formally acknowledge the fine care she continues to receive. Sometimes the interactions residents have with caregivers are the only communication residents may have during the course of the day. When caregivers offer encouragement and a smile, it can make a tremendous difference. Kudos to everyone who helps make our mom’s life at Atria Hillsdale enjoyable.” 
Dave and Scott, sons of Atria Hillsdale resident Penny G. (pictured)
