Visitors can’t help but gaze upward to the roof inlaid with beautiful stained glass when entering Atria Richardson. Below, white wooden guardrails stretch around a furnished porch laced with potted greenery. The elegant décor continues inside. Textured wallpaper is a muted backdrop for the prettily upholstered furniture and dark wood pieces that sit atop richly colored rugs. Brass light fixtures and glass globes shed soft light, adding to the homey feel. A grand wood and glass birdcage near the entrance runs the length of the room and houses several finches. We observed a group of residents visiting with one another as the birds twittered in the background.

Residents’ rooms run from small to large; each is spacious enough to accommodate personal furnishings. Residents with Alzheimer’s enjoy the comfort of private rooms. Natural light cascades over the dining area, making it bright and cheery. A waitstaff serves residents three meals per day; snacks are available around the clock. The enticing dessert menu featured “Florida” lime pie and Irish bread pudding with caramel-whiskey sauce on the day of our visit.

The outdoor area is quite popular among residents. Atria Richardson is adjacent to a private park (also owned by the facility) that features flower-laden paths surrounded by thick wooded areas. Even during winter, the walking club gathers every morning to stroll the meandering walkways that abound. Residents seem to socialize constantly; one group chatted excitedly as they prepared for a scheduled outing. The daughter of one resident paused a moment to share with us how happy she and her mother were with the care at Atria Richardson.
