Atria Senior Living

In Living Color: 
Atria offers safety and endless amenities to senior residents

Retirement is a time for relaxation, and a new senior living community in Cranberry has everything to help the golden years feel a little more golden.

In fact, residents at Atria Cranberry Woods have most everything they need under one roof – an even more important aspect of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The four-story, more than 226,000-square-foot community, located off Route 228, features 183 apartments. Of those, 96 are for independent living, 57 for supportive living and 30 in a dedicated “memory care neighborhood” for residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

All apartments are equipped with a full kitchen or kitchenette, and feature walk-in closets, bonus rooms and balconies. 

But the amenities don’t stop in a resident’s room.

The building features an indoor heated pool, two movie theaters, salon and spa, art studio and a fitness center. Residents are also offered garage parking, housekeeping service, concierge service and scheduled transportation. 

Outdoor, the facility features a grill and courtyard with a putting green and fire pit. Residents also enjoy chef-prepared meals at several dining venues including a restaurant with full table service, bistro and café. Residents are also a short walk to several businesses in the Cranberry Woods area.

The community also encourages residents to continue learning and growing through the Engage Life program. Programs include continued education, fitness, and other personal growth topics.

Since opening earlier this year, Atria Cranberry Woods has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic to keep residents safe.  

New residents and employees must receive a negative COVID-19 test result prior to their move-in or start date. After move-in, new residents are tested again and supported by staff wearing appropriate personal protective equipment. 

Residents are offered continued testing, strict safety protocols, expanded telehealth and opportunities to connect safely with other residents and family. In January and February, COVID-19 vaccine clinics were held, with all residents eligible to receive the doses. 

Moving forward, socially distanced events such as small group dining, scenic drives and drive-up/patio visits from family and friends are planned. 

“We are thrilled to open Atria at Cranberry Woods, and our employees are wholly focused on creating optimal resident experiences through quality service,” said Kevin Ronk, Senior Vice President at Atria Senior Living. “We know what’s most important for the well-being of older adults is a living environment that offers safety, support, social interaction and opportunities to stay healthier and happier longer.”

Atria Cranberry Woods is Atria’s sixth community in Pennsylvania and third in the Pittsburgh area.
