  • Concierge service
  • Emergency alert system
  • 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. 
  • Selection of floor plans
  • 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. 
  • 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.

Executive Director
A Message from our Executive Director, Heather Lawton
I started my career at Atria more than 10 years ago as a volunteer and have held several positions since then, including Engage Life Director. The best thing about my job is working hands-on with our residents, knowing I’m helping them lead longer, healthier, more fulfilled lives. Why not come by and see for yourself? I’d be delighted to meet you and show you around.

“Good food, good friends and good fun – it’s all here at Atria Shaker. You couldn’t ask for a better life!” 
Kathy MacDonald, Resident Council President at Atria Shaker
"I believe we are put on this Earth to help others. I enjoy my roles as Resident Ambassador and Council Vice-President because I can help so many people. Being at Atria gives me purpose." 
Therese, Atria Shaker resident
“The care and attention I receive from the staff make my stay here a pleasant experience. Deciding to stay at Atria 10 years ago was the best one for my family and me.”  
Genevieve K., Atria Shaker resident
“I truly enjoy living at Atria Shaker. The staff is great, and I have a very comfortable life. I couldn’t ask for better!”
