Costs

When deciding on a senior living option, there are many things that contribute to the value you receive for your monthly rent. While there are tangible benefits such as a private apartment, three chef-prepared meals per day, transportation, daily engagement activities, 24-hour staffing & security and more, there are many less tangible but highly valuable aspects as well.

We've having a wonderful experience at the Residence at Stafford! They are very attentive and the activities are great. My mom is active, engaged, thriving, and better than she has ever been since she moved into her apartment there. Mom loves the meals- she always tells me how good everything is. The activities that they have are phenomenal and everything is diverse and well rounded. I am so very impressed with everything that Christy and Pam comes up with and offers the community. They are as creative and energetic as they are warm and caring! This community is a little expensive but it is well worth it. I just want my mom to be as happy and healthy as possible and she is at the Residence. I'm thrilled she calls it home.

The activities that they have are phenomenal, they have art activities and more everything is well rounded and I am very impressed with everything that they offer. I was worried that my loved one would not want to participate but she is participating and has done a lot in this community. They really stimulate her. This community is expensive but it is worth it. I just want my loved one to be as happy as possible. I am excited for my mom.

I think that you can rest assured your loved one is being taken care of very well, which was very important to me. We searched a lot of places before we finally decided on here. When we arrived for our tour, the staff were right there, and we didn't have to wait. Even though we were early, they took us right in. They answered all of our questions. I've met a few of the staff so far since then. From the manager to the aides, they've been very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about them. They're very good. Anytime my loved one has needed help, they've been there for him. There was a change in management, and I kept asking my loved one how things were going. I expected there to be cause for concern, but if anything, it's been even better than before. They've offered more activities and things to do.

Atria Stafford has been nothing less than exceptional regarding taking care of my Dad for close to a year now!! We were extremely impressed with all they have to offer! When the COVID-19 pandemic began, we were scared for Dad’s safety, but Atria rose to the challenge and not only kept everyone safe, but invented new ways to keep everyone engaged while quarantining! Exercise classes done from their own rooms, virtual bingo, crafts, virtual prayer groups, virtual piano singalongs (with my Dad on piano), video calls to family and so much more! The atmosphere is always fun and upbeat, with themed celebrations!! I get frequent and sometimes daily emails regarding COVID-19 protocols and all that is happening within the community. My Dad loves each and every staff member, and we do, too! They all treat him as if he were family! On top of all that, the building is beautifully decorated and immaculate. It reminds me of a posh hotel! We couldn’t be happier with Atria!!

Though I am not retired, I often tell friends that I wouldn't mind living at Atria when I'm ready to because it is such a wonderful place. It's like living in an elegant hotel with high-end services! The building is beautiful and wonderfully decorated, the programs delightful, the food excellent, the staff knock out professional and very accommodating to residents needs. They have given my husband's elderly mother such excellent care! Everyone, I mean everyone, is so professional, loving and caring. They go beyond the moon to be kind and helpful. They also have a terrific nursing staff that provide excellent medical care! I am able to get in touch with them 24/7 with any questions or needs.

My family and I can't be more pleased with Atria Stafford. The entire staff has gone above and beyond making my Dad's transition from losing our Mom to selling his home in a short 4 month time during Covid no less. He has adjusted quickly and more important we can all put our heads on our pillows at night knowing he is in good hands. He loves everyone there and I think he could work there part-time lol. That being said they are the best and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Atria Stafford to anyone.

We are so happy that our Mom resides at Atria Stafford. From the beginning of the Pandemic, Atria Senior Living took extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of their residents. Although it was difficult not being able to visit, it was comforting to know that everyone was safe and being cared for. Initially arrangements were made to see & visit family members via social media. Arrangements are now being made to visit while following safety protocols. If you are looking for Memory Care, they have the best. The Director is a talented, loving, caring person who devotes her life to her “residents.” Her energy is contagious and is evident in her staff as well. Everyone is well cared for; the food is great; it is very clean and family is encouraged to be involved. We are so blessed that Mom calls this place home!

My mom has been at Atria in Stafford for over a year. I can't say enough about the team that cares for her and all of the residents in memory care. They are positive and genuinely care about the well being of the people in their care. In the time that she's been there I've never had a doubt that she's being well cared for as an individual and welcomed as part of the overall community. My mom lived with me for a year and a half before I had to make this move because I was no longer able to provide what she needed. It was difficult to let go and even harder to trust my mom to others. The team at Atria made for a comfortable transition. This is a dedicated crew. Couldn't be happier to have my mom in hands other than my own.

Karen The Residence at Stafford
I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident My uncle was in here, but he was told he had to leave because he kept falling. It's a beautiful assisted living facility, it looks like a five-star hotel inside, and it has a beautiful outdoor porch for visiting. The only negative I can think is that he couldn't stay because he fell too often. They were insisting that he press the button for help when he had to get up, go to the bathroom, or something like that, and in his mind he thought he could do it, and he would get up and fall. The food looked very good. The room was a little small; he had a studio room, and it was very nice, but a little small. They explained to me that it was more of independent living with assistance.

I recently went to Atria Stafford to look for my Grandfather. I found the staff to be very polite and the building looked very clean. We were shown around and had a meal in the dining room. I watched the waitstaff interact with the residents and felt like I could see my grandfather here. I can’t wait to move him in here. Everyone there seems like they are one big family.

I toured Atria Stafford last month with my mother. We met with Christina the Sales Director for the community who was an absolute delight. We had toured several other senior living communities and this community was by far our favorite. The community was extremely clean throughout. The staff was genuinely happy and compassionate towards the residents. More importantly, the residents were clearly happy. We sat down for lunch in their dining room and had the pleasure to meet and talk to some of the residents who raved about the food and activities offered. I can attest to the food being surprisingly delicious, restaurant quality. As we were leaving one of the residents was coming back to the community from rehab and many of the residents and staff gathered around to give him a warm welcome. That was great to witness. When my mother is ready to take the next step to senior living, I’m certain this will be the community she’ll call home.

My wife and I stopped in to speak with the manager working. I explained that my father is currently in the Atria in Cranford, NJ and that we had just purchased a new home in Waretown and wanted to see if we could move him there. They showed us the entire place and the rooms available and that made our discession easy. The staff was great and very informative.

I visited this facility It was very nice, but for a couple, it wouldn't be good because the units were too small. They had lots of activities, physical therapy, game room, and dining room. Everybody was very nice. The place was clean and beautiful. They provided laundry, housekeeping, and food.
