Autumn House is an assisted living community that provides a safe environment without restricting residents' freedom. The community consists of four households with individually designed layouts, color schemes, traffic patterns and living areas that ensure residents' comfort and security. Staffed by licensed personnel 24 hours a day, its care philosophy revolves around being an extension of residents' families, seeking to use these links to residents' pasts and involving family members in their memory care program. The staff works to understand residents' backgrounds, interests and personalities to involve them in daily activities. With a beautifully maintained courtyard garden, its open design promotes therapeutic activity to encourage walking and help reduce stress. Seeking to preserve residents' dignity, it encourages participation in daily living tasks that include exercise, light housekeeping and recreational activities. A web of structured walking paths encourage movement.
What Residents are Saying:
Family members mention the staff, with one saying, "I moved my mom into Autumn House. They have round-the-clock care ... their staff is outstanding. It has a home-like feel." While another notes the activities, "One of my great grandfather's favorite things was going on the 'field trips' that the facility held every couple of days or so."
