I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother is a resident of Autumn of Sarasota, having been there almost a year. Each and everyone of the care staff provides care with love and concern infused into everything they do. Not only for my mom, but love and concern for my father who is struggling without mom at home. .Mother settled in well and is doing fabulous. Carol, the Executive Director as been so supportive of my Dad as he has gone through this difficult transition. I can not say enough good things about the wonderful staff at Autumn, Autumn has been the saving grace for mom and dad.

Autumn of Sarasota is a beautiful facility, there’s a lot of caring people, and our first impressions were very good. They’ve been wonderful. We toured a lot of facilities and of all these facilities, this one was we’ve heard a lot good things. The administration was extremely attentive and very visible. They have activities everywhere -- they take them out to lunch, they take them out on mystery bus tours. They have a lot of activities.

I visited this facility

Autumn of Sarasota was new and everything was beautiful. They had a nice setup with the hallways, but it did not seem suitable for my mother-in-law. I didn’t think the grounds would have been as nice as for her to get out. It was very small, and kind of limited. If she would be on the second floor, she would be confined. The ceilings of the rooms were very high, they had fans going, but most elderly people do not like ceiling fans.

Provider Response

Thank you for your review Barbara. In our community the hallways are spacious and have many comfortable seating areas along the way to sit and relax in, with welcoming porches that lead into just a small portion of their living area . Being on the second floor is a preference for some of our residents that have come from living in apartments and condos. Our residents can go freely throughout the community and can also enjoy the court yard area and several lovely patio areas, as the entire living area is safe and secure. We have also an expanded outdoor area where our residents can watch the swans from the gazebo. Our ceilings are higher so our residents don’t feel closed in which often occurs with dementia. The ceiling fans in the rooms are mainly for circulation and your right most of the time our residents turn them off and adjust the temperature in their room to a personal comfortable setting.

I visited this facility

Autumn is a big facility, brand new, and the rooms are very large and spacious. It was nicely decorated and had more the feeling of a hotel than a care facility. It was very cheerful inside. It had two floors, and the outdoor space was limited.

Provider Response

Thanks you for your kind words. We have just added swans to the pond area, offering an expanded outdoor area for our residents.

My wife is already in the Autumn of Sarasota. It was recommended by a friend of mine. What they primarily have is memory care; most residents are memory care clients. They have two stories, and it is beautifully decorated. There is a therapy group right there at the center, plus they have a beauty shop and a nurses’ station. It is kept clean, and they wash their clothes. It is a little expensive, I think, but it was the finest one I could find; of all those that I looked at, I thought it was the cleanest. They provided the bed, and I provided the TV and a few other things. They have a walkway that goes around in a circle where the clients can walk around what they call the Yellow Brick Road; it’s very nice. And they also have a center atrium with plants in the middle where you can walk out and still be in a controlled environment, which is very beautiful. In addition to therapy, they have activities or exercises, and I think that at least twice a day, they have something going on for all of the clients. My wife doesn’t participate in most of them; she just wants to sit and read, and she is really hard to get to do things, but she does walk the Yellow Brick Road. In my judgment, the staff is very good people, and they seem very conscientious about what they are doing. I ate there once, and I think they are very good. They have assigned seats -- four to a table -- and the same people sit at the table every day. My wife gets out of the room to the table and is served. The big meal is the lunch meal, which I feel is inappropriate, but they get to select some different things. For the most part, I think it is very tasty. They also have snacks available.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind & thoughtful review. We make the main meal lunch at Autumn because it is healthier for our residents. However, if you feel the portions are too large for your wife, we will be more than happy to give her portions sizes that are best for her, just talk to Carol or our nurse on duty. Thanks again!

Autumn of Sarasota was for higher needs. There weren't a whole lot of people there that were able to interact independently. The food was good, they had several dining rooms, and it was a nice eating experience. They had music for people who like that, and they had live music come in. They have all kinds of activities, but my father didn't take part. The rooms had private bathrooms, and some of them had little porches. It was safe, clean, and pretty well tended to. However, it had a difficult system for getting into the rooms, and for memory challenged people, it's kind of difficult. He wasn't very well attended there because he didn't need a whole lot of assistance. They didn't make sure that he changed his clothes when he should have.

Autumn of Sarasota is a brand new facility, and it is privately owned. It is the nicest facility that we have been to. The people are wonderful to work with, and it has indoor and outdoor space. It is just a very high quality place. It is absolutely secure and safe. The cooking facility is just amazing; they have a chef that is working there. According to my mother, the food is amazing.
