  • Medication assistance
  • Physical therapy room 
    – 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. 
  • Restaurant with full table service
  • 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.

  • Trained staff available 24 hours a day


  • Cafe offering refreshments and lighter fare
  • 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. 
  • 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.

    – 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. 
  • 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.

Executive Director
A Message from Our Executive Director, Kymberly Codair
I pursued a career in senior living because I’ve always admired the older generation. Their wisdom and unique perspective on life makes them an invaluable resource to all of us. I am fortunate to lead a talented team of professionals as we work to enrich the lives of older adults. We laugh together and treat one another with the kind of warmth, humor and compassion you’d expect from family. Stop by for a personal tour today and see for yourself.

"It's a relaxing atmosphere and I feel right at home." 
Kathleen, resident of Atria Merrimack Place
“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." 
Melissa, daughter of Atria Merrimack Place resident Carol. (pictured)
