  • 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
  • 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, Kurt Gürsu
I began working in senior living because I understood the benefits it can have for residents and their families. With our focus on independence and quality of life, our staff continually goes beyond simple job tasks to make a real difference in the lives of our residents. Many members of our staff have been here for more than five years – some for more than 20. That experience combined with our lush setting makes Atria Willow Glen the best community in San Jose. Visit us today to see for yourself.

"I enjoy the camaraderie of the people living here. Everyone is helpful, courteous and friendly. I especially like the meals.” 
Harold, Atria Willow Glen resident
“I moved to Atria Willow Glen six years ago. What I like most about life here is being around the people. After a career of helping people as a manager for the telephone company, I still enjoy helping others. Living here allows me to stay involved with neighbors and friends, which is very important to me. My family loves that I live here because they know how happy I am living in a community setting.” 
Dorothy, Atria Willow Glen resident
