I lived a very lonely life before coming here. I must say the "Staff," from the front desk personnel, our talented directors, who seem to never end in trying to find new ways to entertain and help us to manage our lives, housekeeping, servers in our restaurant, The chef and his assistants, caregivers, managers and assistants are outstanding. I have not found one person to be unkind or rude to any of the residents and being fairly new you see and hear more than most. I love the activities, and we all enjoy the food. I have never eaten such a variety of great salads, entrees and desserts . I feel like I am in a high class hotel and yet I still feel like it is family..I don't know how else to explain how I feel, but I always thought when the time came for me to move to a home for Seniors, I would hate it..Well I am here to tell you, I really lucked out. I feel so honored to have been invited to move into Atria Palm Desert and I will be eternally grateful.

I'm very found of my care taker Rozanna. She has inspired me to make an effort to get rid of my walker. I'm trying to get along with out my walker and use my cane, and hopefully walk independtly. I want to to go New York to see the Ground Zero Memorial, and hopefully my son and his wife will join me.

I am a 71 year old man with PARKINSONS and I have a pacemaker and I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis . I was in rehab for 2 months and had to make some medical and living changes in my life.I was told by my doctors that I would have to go to an assisted living environment upon my 2month release from rehab. This new bump on the road of my life was both a surprising and shocking. I suddenly felt very alone and scared of what the future held for me. After much soul searching and the advise from family and friends I began the difficult task of looking for a new place to call home.I started the search by asking my doctors of possible recommendations. They said that I would have to make the final decision on my own as only I knew what would work for my taste and affordability. I did a lot of research and started to look for my new home. So began my search and saw that this would be very difficult I became very sad and disponded .The first place I viewed was a 4 floor mega building which was out of the question with my limited walking. The second place was so dark and dreary I just wouldn't be happy there. My third appointment to view was at ATRIA Palm Desert. I was immediately Impressed with the beautiful , contemporary décor and tasteful art and modern appointments throughout the premises. My first thought was WOW, I could live here!As I stared my tour I saw that all of the staff were very warm and friendly , From the front desk greeting to my meeting with Vickie Maringer the Community Director Who's (open Door) policy and friendly smile makes me feel very secure and that a top notch professional is the Captain of a very smooth sailing ship!all were very helpful and answering all my questions ( and I had many !) After my meeting and tour It was EURIKA , I had found my new home!I moved in on January 6, 2015. All of my expectations proved to be true. Since living here I have made many new friends among the residents and the very dedicated staff. The caregivers are tremendous with a special shout out to" Gabby" Gabreilla Morales who from my very first day showed me what true dedication is all about.The Engage In Life Director Theresa Ramirez has been a light in my life for her endearing and positive outlook on life. She is there when just when you think you can't do something she will prove me wrong!Joseph Garvida the Residents Services Director does a great job and he too must be commended for his kindness and "hands on" approach to every detail in his very busy work schedule.One of the perks of my stay here is the fine food service that Ely the resident Chef provides. He is always dedicated to satisfy our taste buds with a Menu that is always exciting and new. I thank him , my stomach thanks him!My life here at ATRIA has helped me to realize that no matter how bumpy the road of life can sometimes be there are solutions for a better life at ATRIA .I am very blessed, indeed !

I wish I could remember everyone's name, but the ones that come to mind are Michele, Cassandra, Carolina and Jose. They all try to make the residents and guests happy and cater to their needs (and whims). The chef, Elias, comes out and talks to everyone, shakes hands, salutes (!) and makes everyone feel at home. He takes a very personal interest in making the food both tasty and healthy, a thin line to walk.

It's always nice to come into the building and be greeted by the wonderful front desk staff. Lisa, Mike, Laurie ( and occasionally Gabbie ) are waiting with a smile and are anxious to help in any way they can. My mother calls them with questions and concerns and they contribute to her feelings of safety and connectedness. Their welcoming attitude makes the day!

There are probably more! but we've been privileged to get to know some of the long-term employees working at Atria Palm Desert: Mike (24 years), Emelda ( 24 years), Mariaelena (14 years). Not many people stay with the same company this long anymore, so they speak volumes for Atria. They always treat my mother with respect and kindness and our family is very grateful.

Joseph, the Resident Services Director, made us feel comfortable from Day One and continues to do so. He is very attentive to my mother's needs and we feel she is always in good hands, 24/7. He truly cares about the residents and this shows daily. If we have a concern or a desire, he follows up as soon as he can and makes sure everyone, especially my mother, knows he's there to help. Could not ask for more.

Kelly, the Community Sales Director, was very helpful when we were going through the difficult task of moving my 93-year old mother from her home to Atria. Needless to say, leaving your long-time living situation and moving to a totally new environment is very hard. Kelly was gentle, supportive and sympathetic. She guided us through this and made the transition easy.

Caroline is always warm, attentive and polite to my father (John Santucci) - and he isn't easy to please! On his first day at Atria, at his first meal, she introduced herself and made him feel welcome. Her warmth and caring shows whenever she waits on him.And - she always butters his English muffins!
