“I went on this adventure and had a wonderful time on a beautiful Autumn afternoon. Riding a horse again was on my bucket list and I am so pleased that Atlantic Shores gave me the chance to do it. It was fantastic! I did pretty well with riflery and archery too. I hope we have more of these outdoor adventures. I especially want to thank Jason and Joy. They are delightful to be with and so much fun. They helped to make it a perfect day!”

Janice
Seaside

“My second time as a patient here and I wish to comment on my stay. Employees were exceptional. They related extremely well with the patients. Each worked at providing the highest possible care. Food service was very good, and most importantly, the physical therapy program was excellent - main reason I requested to be here! In 12 days, I went from a stretcher to walking out on my last day unassisted. I strongly recommend the services at Seaside.”

Linda
Lifestyle

“My husband, a 24 year Air Force veteran, and I moved to Atlantic Shores in October 2016. We decided to tour three retirement communities in Virginia Beach, but after seeing Atlantic Shores we threw the names of the other two away. We chose to live in a villa on the big lake and we love it! We've met wonderful folks through the years but feel we've never lived in a friendlier environment. We've made friends quickly and treasure these friendships.”

“My wife was admitted for a burst fracture in her back. I selected Seaside over other rehab centers and know I made the correct choice after visiting for several days. Seaside is a vast improvement with staff care over the hospital. The food is also a large leap forward over hospital food. The staff is very cheerful and accommodating to all visitors.”

Regina
Dining

“I have been working with Atlantic Shores for some time now with their annual Wine Dinners and the monthly wine tastings. The food is such a demonstration of the talent the chefs at the Club as they pair each of the wines with a unique dish. It is enticing to have a variety of great food and great wines for the residents to come and enjoy on a regular basis. Not only is the space beautiful and inviting, but the decorations are wine inspired and presentation of the food and plating is impressive.”

Kimberly Brown
Housekeeping & Maintenance

“Kudos to Jeremy! Came to our villa at 3pm to deep clean the house, and paid special attention to areas like shutters and ceiling fans. He worked until all was properly cleaned. Great work ethic... very personable. He is a new addition to the ASCA team... Welcome aboard, Jeremy!”

We chose Seaside because we have been there before, and the care was very good. They were able to offer a private room for my dad, and the timing worked out right. They have given exemplary care, and my dad is doing well.
