Dad started off in C building in assisted living. He moved to Life Guidance the first of the year. This was a tough transition for him, but he was aware that he needed to do it. He went for almost a week to have lunch there and check it out before he moved in. The staff was very friendly and Dad liked them and the food. He has had a couple of personal hurdles to cross, but the staff have been so supportive. They have taken a huge stress from me and say not to worry. I honestly believe them too. They go out of their way to get him to engage in activities, which once he is doing it he does enjoy it. They are very tentative to his needs and very caring. I cannot say enough nice things about Atria. I have developed a relationship with a lot of the staff there and they know me. I never feel as though I am intruding on their job. They know that I just want to follow up on my Dad. I am very grateful for everyone there.

My grandfather was admitted at this location roughly 3 years ago. Initially, I thought the service was great, food mediocre, and the price was fair. Some time later, my grandfather fell in the bathroom in his room and (later we found out he fractured his hip at the hospital) no one could enter the room in this emergency situation. It took 15 MINUTES to try and find someone who could try to open the door. The worst part was, MY GRANDFATHER HAD TO CRAWL ON THE FLOOR (injured) to unlock the door! The staff never was able to even unlock the door. Nonsense. He ended up having hip surgery and moving locations to avoid this from happening again. The food is rated at "5 stars." I would disagree with this, but that is my opinion. The good thing about this place was the exceptional medical staff. I was in contact with them weekly and the staff was very friendly/supportive and knowledgeable.

At a difficult time in our lives, we have found comfort in knowing that our mother is in the hands of such a wonderful staff at Atria El Camino Gardens. They are very kind, attentive and supportive, and the facility itself is beautiful.

My mom has been at Atria El Camino Gardens for over 5 years and its been a very, very good. She started off in independent living and has progressed onto assisted living and now life guidance. All of the staff have been great. In fact, I chose Atria El Camino Gardens because of the staff. While all of the staff have been great, I would like to note that Ingrid Weber has just been wonderful. She is so thoughtful, kind, caring, and supportive, both for my mom and me. She has gone way beyond the normal call of duty, even staying with my mom past midnite in the hospital. Ingrid thinks of creative ways to resolve issues that come up, including getting my mom hospice care when she needed it. She keeps me informed on how my mom is doing (I live out of state) on a regular basis. She is very cheerful, cares for all the life guidance clients, and has a great rapport with the other life guidance staff. The rest of the life guidance staff (Cora, Priscilla and others I've forgotten their names) really do care about their clients. They make an extra effort to make a happy and fun environment, with lots of activities. They know all their clients, what they like to eat, where they like to sit and what they like (or don't like) to do. In summary, I am very happy with the care my mom gets at Atria El Camino Gardens and would recommend it to anyone.
