AUTUMN’S PROMISE ASSISTED LIVING MISSION STATEMENT

Autumn’s Promise Assisted Living places our highest priority in acknowledging and appreciating the resident as an individual. We recognize that each resident values their own routines and lifestyles. We wish to supplement and enrich their lives through providing the services and assistance the senior needs to remain as independent as possible. We pledge to provide dignity, protect privacy and ensure a safe, secure environment. We will remain steadfast in our efforts to provide the services to meet each resident’s current needs and will offer flexibility in meeting needs of the future. We strive to build trusting, personal relationships with both residents and their families. We acknowledge the unique opportunity of being included in the process of helping seniors and their family members make important and sensitive decisions. We are committed to providing an environment where families feel comfortable and informed about their loved one’s daily lives and healthcare on a on-going basis. We are proud to provide highest quality health and daily living care. We are committed to the employment of caring and specially trained staff. We will not only perform to the standard of residential care, but will be progressive and conscientious in our commitment to excellence. We will foster a working environment where staff feel valued for the knowledge and expertise they bring to our community. The Autumn’s Promise community will make every effort to ensure that each adult residing with us enjoys life to it’s fullest. We will provide continuously maintained and updated amenities. We will feature high quality furnishings and handsomely decorated interior that will cultivate a cozy and comfortable atmosphere for all. Our commitment to excellence will be evident in the delectability and variety provided in each dining experience. We will feature flexibility of schedule, choice of nutritious food preferences and hospitable “restaurant” like service. Our activity and enrichment program will be tailored to the special and varied interests of our residents. We are dedicated to providing opportunities to enrich and stimulate the knowledge, wisdom, spirituality and joy of each individual.
