Customer Reviews

Opening for mom

We toured this community and like the staff who were caring. The menu looked very good. They offer a lot of activities. We would of like this clean community, but there were not opening at the time of the tour. I would of like seeing her with the great staff that seems to really care about the needs of the residents. Families should consider a tour of this community for a loved one.

My Thought Of The Tour

We liked this community when we visited, unfortunately they did not have an opening available when we were ready to move mom. The staff seem to have a good attitude and the community was well maintained. The food was good and they offered daily activities.

Thank you so much for the review. We are happy to hear that you had a great experience during your tour of our community. Please contact us anytime if you would like to be added to our waiting list.

Autumn is the best! My mom has been a resident for over a year. The facility is clean, the staff is great and the activities program is fantastic.

Thank you so much! We love having your mom as part of the Autumn family.

The staff they did have was nice!!

Autumn of Sarasota is a clean community. My parents did not complain about the food so it must have been ok. I do not think they have enough staff. We did hire aids to assist in their room. They use electric keys for the rooms and we had trouble using them sometimes. There is no name of a person of contact to find out information about your loved one.

Great Place

We went to Autumn of Sarasota to tour this First Class facility. Jill, the Facilitator at Autunm, did get a wonderful job explaining and subsequently moving our mother moved to the facility.

Jill is great and we're glad you chose Autumn!

Autumn of Sarasota

The place is beautiful. My mom has really settled in well. She has made friends and even calls it her home now.

Robert Ross

Local Representative

Thanks so much for your very kind review. We hare so happy that your mother thinks of Autumn as her home.

Expensive

Very clean new place. But very expensive for the average person. I ran to another community we could afford for my mom.

Carol Copenhaver

Local Representative

We are sorry to hear that you found our community a little expensive. Through the end of 2015 we are running a promotion. Your Mom may stay with us for an all-inclusive price of $5,095.

disappointed

Moving my dad out this month. He was stuck upstairs and my mom has to come in to do showers.

Carol Copenhaver

Local Representative

We're sorry your experience was so difficult. We made every effort to care for your father and are sad that it did not work out for you.

Loving family

To the wonderful staff of Autumn of Sarasota thank you for all you do for our father. You have improved his life greatly and given us peace of mind.

Thanks you so much for your kind words!

Loving husband

Acknowledging that my wife should move to Autumn of Sarasota to get the care she needs was extremely difficult for me because we have had 56 wonderful years together. Although our children and I believe it was the right decision, I admit to having many prior reservations. The caring, compassionate, highly trained staff of Autumn have rapidly put any reservations we may have had to rest. My wife is happy participating in the many diverse activities and receiving all the wonderful are from the care partners and nurses. Our thanks to all at Autumn for doing what you do so well.

Thank you so much for you wonderful review. We're so proud that we have been able to take care of your mother and ease this difficult transition.

Best Care

I toured and moved my mother to Autumn about 4 months ago. I toured multiple facilities in the Sarasota/Bradenton area in search of the "best fit" for my mother who has dementia. From the initial tour with the move in specialist and Executive Director I knew this was the community which would fill all my mother's needs. I like that the fact that the community is privately owned and the owners live right here in Sarasota. I see the owners on a daily basis in the facility interacting with the staff and residents, you do not see this from "large" corporations. The Executive Director has 40 years of experience in the management of assisted living communities, which helped to put my mind at ease regarding experienced, dedicated staff who would be caring for my mother. The Executive Director is readily available giving her direct cell phone number to all families and encouraging them to call her directly at any time with concerns or needs of the resident. The nursing staff and care partners are loving, compassionate and highly trained employees, who meet the needs of my mother on a daily basis. Any concerns I may have are taken care of immediately. I am so thankful for this community and the care, love and happiness they bring to my mother.

Thank you so much for allowing us to care for your mother. We are very proud of our Executive Director and her dedication to care.

A Great Place

I recently had to place my father in a Memory Care facility, it was an extremely difficult decision for a daughter to make. When I toured Autumn I knew I had fund the right place for dad. From the initial tour with Jill and the Executive Director Carol I felt the love and compassion this community is all about. My father has been there about 3 months and is very happy with his care, the activities and the response from the management if he has a concern or a special need. I highly recommend this facility to anyone who has a loved one who needs this type of community.

Carol Copenhaver

Local Representative

Thank you for your great recommendation. We try our best to take care of residents and family members, because dementia affects the entire family, not just our resident.

The best in Sarasota

I moved my father here after visiting one other community. He has now been living here for a couple months. I love it and so does Dad. He gets to go out to the theatre, lunches to great restaurants, golfing, fishing, etc, and Autumn pays for all of it. Where he was at before billed us for lunches and cultural events. He has incontinence issues and I have never found him wet when I come in. He is the happiest I have seen him in a very long time. Very clean, great staff who are responsive, nurses 24 hours a day. And the Director of the community is available and answers her phone every time I need to talk to some one about how I am feeling with my Dad having dementia. A very knowledgeable and supportive community. While looking for a community, look beyond aesthetics and be sure you find someone who can really give great care. I found Autumn to be the best for my Dad. Thank you very much Autumn.

We're glad you are enjoying all our new changes here at Autumn.

They have some issues to work on

We used this community briefly for respite care, and while there were a lot of positive aspects I don't think it is somewhere we would use again. It is a very new community, and they are working through some growing pains. They're working hard on improving, the for the most part the staff members all seemed very dedicated and qualified. The facility itself is beautiful, and they keep it clean and well kept. My main issues were with the food service. The menu did not always reflect what was served, and I saw some questionable food handling practices. And while most of the staff were dedicated and professional there were a few who were obviously not qualified to be there.

Carol Copenhaver

Local Representative

Thanks. Comments help us much. And yes, sometimes issues do arise and solutions are found. There has been quite a few changes in our community. We now have a new Executive Director with over 40 years of Nursing and ALF management experience. We also have 24/7 on-site licensed nursing. We also now have a new certified dietary manager and dietician. And we can't forget our Activities Director and her fabulous team! We'd love for you to meet our new management and see for yourself what great changes we've made.

Review of Autumn of Sarsota Memory Care in Sarasota, FL

My brother and I moved my 93 year old mother to this brand new facility after touring several other memory dedicated communities. We were very impressed by the obvious dedication of experienced management to reinvigorate the lives of its residents. Since moving to Autumn, my mother's health and attitude have improved markedly. All three of us realize how fortunate we were to find Autumn.

All of our residents are our number one priority in our Community.

About Aravilla Communities

Aravilla communities are for seniors who want the freedom to live their lives as they wish, embracing health and pursuing their own versions of happiness each day. We create beautiful, safe, resort-like environments that feel like vacation destinations, and we treat our residents like special guests. More importantly, we care for them like family.

Unlike many other communities, Aravilla is privately and locally owned, not part of a large, impersonal corporation. Our administrative management lives on site. That means our quality of care is personal and we follow our own evidence-based protocols that immediately meet the needs of the people who live here.

Live Life to the Fullest
Aravilla communities encourage residents to embrace their passions and explore new possibilities with an array of exciting and engaging programs. Our schedule is bursting with opportunities for cultural enrichment and personal growth. Residents enjoy daily live music. They can also take a spin around the floor with a Fred Astaire-style dance lesson, stay fit in a group exercise class, or go on one of our many excursions to local beaches, restaurants, sporting events, attractions and more. To wind down, our residents can relax with a book and refreshing beverage while enjoying the view of our beautiful courtyard garden.

Gourmet Dining with a Bounty of Options
Good food is the essence of good living. Aravilla’s team of Le Cordon Bleu-trained chefs handcrafts each meal using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Meals are served three times a day in a restaurant setting with beautiful table linens and place settings. With optimal health and happiness in mind, we’ve created a Mediterranean diet-inspired menu that’s designed to promote heart and brain health. Plenty of traditional staples are also available and our chefs can accommodate any personal preferences or dietary requirements, including gluten-free.

Compassionate and Professional Care
