My mother spent the final 3 years of her life at Autumn Grove. Suffering from dementia, she was a challenge at times and the caregivers always handled her with grace and love. My mother often times thought she was either on a cruise or at the country club. She loved the food, the decor and the "help" as she called the caregivers. My mom was a very private lady who enjoyed solitude and oftentimes had a few choice words for caregivers and other residents when they interrupted her solitude. She was always treated with respect and the caregivers enjoyed and encouraged her individuality. My mom loved jewelry and all things sparkly. The caregivers threw a princess birthday party for her when she turned 86. As she transitioned to the final stage of life, I couldn't have asked for a more loving or caring or knowledgeable staff to help us through to the end. I cannot say enough praise for the manager and her staff and I thank God that I found Autumn Grove for my mother.
My grandmother received loving care from these wonderful people. We felt like a family with this small community. My grandmother liked the small quiet atmosphere not so loud like other communities. It was the best fit for her. We still visit with caregivers and the other residents from time to time. I wish more families knew of Autumngrove Cottage.
Choosing the right assisted living facility is never an easy task. Senior residents in assisted and independent living facilities should feel comfortable in their choice of locating a home that fits their needs and is inviting to them. When locating a facility for a person who is fairly independent, I find it necessary to match the personality of the facility with the personality of the potential resident or family member. Autumn Grove Cottage in Champions is a family style home, located in a great location.
The facility is in walking distance to a major shopping center. Although the area is somewhat busy, there are many entertainment venues within a five mile radius. The family style property is designed to feel like home. Safety measures are in place like guardrails and safe entry ways to facilitate the safety of all residents. Many of the residents have memory care needs. This facility provides above average care plans to assist those patients. With a very small number of residents, staff members are able to provide individualized attention. This is not a busy facility. Rather, it is a facility that provides basic care for seniors who need minimal to moderate assistance with activities of daily living, medication reminders, and memory care.
Therapeutic measures are implemented throughout this facility to provide for the cognitive and physical needs of every resident. Residents are given a wide range of options for menus, and menus are amended regularly to assure that the dietary and personal preferences of the resident are adhered to. Activities are also present here and tailored to meet the individual needs and preferences of the resident.
The assets of this facility are the small size, therapeutic memory care, and adherence to meal preferences and need. The facility fits well with a person who enjoys small, peaceful environments, and not a lot of people moving about. Autumn Grove Cottage in Champions has a home presence that is calm and loving. Individualized attention makes this home a first choice home for any senior who is not looking for extravagance and style, but for warmth, specialized care, and a peaceful atmosphere. This facility is also moderately priced.
Historical area and great location! Autumn Grove Heights is in an excellent location, it's peaceful, relaxing, and reminds me of grandma's. This place has many relaxing sitting areas for reading or visiting. Some of the residents were participating in an exercise type activity and seemed to really be enjoying it. The staff seemed very personable and caring. The food smelled wonderful and all of the living spaces that I saw were clean.
