    – In partnership with outside, licensed providers, Atria offers on-site physical therapy for residents and area seniors who need therapy to recover from a stroke, accident or other physical disability. 
  • 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 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

Amenities

  • Cafe with complimentary snacks and beverages
  • Club and volunteer opportunities 
    – Atria recognizes that being older doesn't mean being inactive. Our communities offer clubs and options for volunteer work at everywhere from local schools to homeless shelters. The volunteer program affords our residents the opportunity to share their talents and knowledge with the local community. Feeling needed is an important part of staying active and independent, and the volunteer program shows all who participate how necessary they are to the local community. 
  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • Red Hat Society 
    – Our community has an active Red Hat Society chapter, an organization for women over the age of 50 that is dedicated to creating a welcoming social network and having fun. Red Hat Society brings together women for special events like teas, theater outings, picnics and more. Wearing their distinctive red hats and purple outfits, the members of the Red Hat Society stand out in a crowd not only for their garb but also for their obvious enjoyment of life.

Testimonials

A Message from the 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.

“I’m so appreciative of the care and attention my mother receives at Atria Merrimack Place. I never imagined she would experience such joy on a daily basis – I see her sing, laugh, dance and smile every day. Her quality of life has drastically improved since she moved here, and I’m certain this is the best place for her."
