NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., February 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Designing Spaces™, an award-winning home improvement show on Lifetime TV, recently featured Atria Newport Beach in a segment titled “Keeping Your Golden Years Golden,” showcasing the high quality of life older adults live in the new community that opened in Orange County a little over a year ago.
The Designing Spaces segment covered key amenities at Atria Newport Beach and also interviewed residents Holly and HJ Browning, married for 64 years. Several years ago, they started looking for senior living options early in their search. The couple visited Atria Newport Beach and were impressed. They booked an apartment before the community was built. They officially made the move last January, a year later they haven’t looked back.
“This place brings you back to life. The people who live in this place, it’s the friendliest group of people you can find. The people who work here, the people who move here, we’re all about the same age . And it’s just a wonderful experience. You go down for lunch or dinner and sit down with someone and they’ve become your friends,” HJ said.
son of hj Brett Browning was also interviewed on the show. He said “it’s so comforting to know that here at Atria people are looking after my parents. One of the first times I called my parents here, one of the greatest things I all they ever heard was, ‘we have to call you back.’ And it was almost a weight lifted that you knew they were just having fun and we didn’t have to worry about them all the time.”
“For many adult children, there can be moments of anxiety as they work with their parents to determine living arrangements and care arrangements. That’s why we were thrilled to work with Atria Senior Living to deliver this important educational message to our audience,” said Scott MossEVP programming for the design of spaces.
Located minutes from the Newport Marina, Balboa Island and Sunset Ridge Park – and across from the Hoag Hospital campus – the Atria Newport Beach features California coastal architecture and a selection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.
The design of Atria Newport Beach portends a bold new way for residents to safely live their best life in style. Residents have access to over 30,000 square feet of indoor amenities, including a fitness center, yoga studio, salon and spa, theater, game room, library, and more. Dining and dining options include lighter fare at 1888 Bistro, cocktails and small bites at Avalon, and fine dining at Vasco’s Restaurant.
Through its Engage Life® program, residents enjoy socially distanced events such as conference call book clubs, themed food and beverage carts, and guided meditation. The community also offers in-apartment dining for residents who prefer this added security measure.
Technology is a key part of the high quality of life experience at Atria Newport Beach, with the community having a full-time Director of Digital Innovations to help residents with all their technology needs, from cellphones to Facetime and more. via Wi-Fi. The apartments are equipped with the Atria Smart Home system, which includes a smart thermostat to keep the temperature the way a resident likes it, as well as automated blinds and smart lighting – all controllable via an interface on the TV smart pre-installed in each apartment.
