Atria Covell Gardens is a mid-level to upscale retirement and assisted living home. Atria is based out of Kentucky and operates over 120 homes all over the United States, with many locations in California.
A protest was held by some of the Atria residents on 2007-12-21 at the Atria Covell Gardens facility. The protest was due to a proposed 8-11% rent increase for 2008. Lamar Heystek attended the protest and spoke with several of the residents afterwards. Several residents, many of whom are on fixed incomes, stated that the proposed increase would make it impossible for them to stay at the facility.
They have a bus for transportation.

2011-09-19 13:45:11 My mother moved into Covell gardens this past summer. There are many benefits to living there. The setting and gardens are beautiful. The staff is courteous and pleasant. The new dining room is nice. The food was good when she first moved in. After losing their chef, however, the quality has really gone downhill. The fruit is no longer plentiful and fresh as it once was. Residents are served odd combinations of food items that are difficult to eat, unfamiliar to them and unappetizing ie flank steak tacos. Lettuce is old and limp. Residents should be served well prepared comfort food that is well seasoned, tender, fresh, local, and familiar to the residents. Menus should not contain grandiose sounding items that arrive cold and unidentifiable. There is a comment box outside the dining room door which is getting lots of attention these days from the residents. —chrisdenton
