Design, Technology and Safety Features to Enhance Quality of Life for Senior Adults
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Innovations through technology, design and safety await senior adults at Atria Newport Beach, a new Atria Signature Residence offering independent living and assisted living across 77,000 square feet of modern, open space. Located just minutes from Newport Marina, Balboa Island and Sunset Ridge Park – and across from the Hoag Hospital campus – 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 more safely live their best lives in elegance. Carefully designed communal spaces and smart home technology, along with safety initiatives shaped from the COVID-19 pandemic, combine to offer residents a comfortable and convenient lifestyle with peace of mind. Atria Newport Beach will hold its first COVID-19 vaccine clinic for residents and staff on February 5, with subsequent clinics scheduled on February 26 and March 19.
“Much of what we’ve seen through COVID-19 has confirmed the direction we were heading with new communities like Atria Newport Beach,” said John Moore, Chairman and CEO of Atria Senior Living. “Before the pandemic, we had already shifted our design focus to include things like larger apartments with kitchenettes and full-sized refrigerators, large and open communal spaces, more access to outdoor spaces, a heavy focus on daylighting, and using technology.”
Technology is a key component to the elevated quality of life experience at Atria Newport Beach, Moore said. Apartments are equipped with the Atria Smart Home System, which features a smart thermostat to keep the temperature just the way a resident likes it, as well as automated window shades and smart lighting – all controllable through an interface on the pre-installed smart TV in each apartment.
Technology also helps reduce touches, trace human interactions and provide safety monitoring, among many other infectious disease factors. Wearable technology, similar to a smart watch, promotes resident safety by providing keyless apartment entry and access to rooms and amenities, provides immediate fall detection and two-way communication with staff, and monitors and documents contact tracing if needed. Residents also have access to a dedicated care staff available 24/7 as well as the latest in telehealth support.
Atria Newport Beach residents have access to more than 30,000 square feet of indoor amenities including a fitness center, yoga studio, salon and spa, theater, game room, library and more. Dining and restaurant options include lighter fare at 1888 Bistro, cocktails and small bites at Bogie & Bacall’s Lounge, and fine dining at Vasco’s Restaurant. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, the Atria Newport Beach culinary team creates delicious menu selections designed to appeal to personal preferences and accommodate dietary requirements. An interior courtyard garden provides residents with a space to enjoy the ocean breeze.
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 is also offering in-apartment dining to residents who prefer this extra safety measure.
“From apartments with smart home features to engaging social events and elevated culinary offerings, we’re providing residents with a fantastic senior living experience in Orange County,” said Sarah Laloyan, Senior Vice President of Operations at Atria. “Atria Newport Beach is purposefully designed for older adults who wish to lead active and vibrant lives. We’re thrilled about this addition to our Atria Signature portfolio.”
