    – 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.

A Message from Our Executive Director
Life at our community is tailored to the interests and desires of our residents. Here, seniors can live comfortably while taking advantage of opportunities they may not have had while staying at home alone. We take care of the cooking; we take care of the cleaning; we take care of the driving - that way, our residents can focus on doing what they love and choosing what they want to explore next. Welcome to a lifestyle that's full of possibilities. Welcome home.

“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.” 
Dave and Scott, sons of Atria Hillsdale resident Penny G. (pictured)
“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
“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
