  • Autumn Meadows V And Vi

    We did not have a great experience here. The community was not always clean and they did not always keep up with my mother's hygiene. Compared to the community she is currently at, the care at Autumn Meadows is not as good. My mother didn't like it here so we decided to move her. They had very little activities available for the residents as well. I think the staff needs more training on how to better deal with those who are in assisted living. It seemed as though a lot of the staff were exasperated and weren't enjoying what they were doing. The new manager they brought in to manage the house was not great and she turned out to be very unkind.

  • Awful Place

    The staff is very unprofessional and rude. There are no specialized meals for the residents that need special diets, no activities just sit and watch tv....never put your love one in this facility.

  • Highly Satisfied with Autumn Meadows

    I was very impressed with Autumn Meadows the moment I first visited their facility on Defense Highway. It is a homestyle environment and very peaceful. I came unannounced on a Saturday mid-afternoon. It is very spacious and tucked in front of a nicely wooded lot. The food they prepare there is from scratch and the facility only houses 14 residents to include my Dad who was a recent introduction to their community after he was discharged from the Crofton Convalescence Center when his rehab therapy ended. Unfortunately my Dad is still grieving the death of my Mother last May and his decline was rapid to the point where he could not live alone and be able to take care of himself. When he was at Crofton Convalescence he was very uptight because it has the appearance of a hospital and was a very chaotic environment. He is still a bit uneasy but the peace and quiet and intimacy of considerably reduced population has been a huge improvement. He has a private room with the bathroom just steps away in the hallway and he has a nice forest view. Like most of the residents at Autumn Meadows he would prefer to be at home. But I am hoping the cheery staff and homemade food and the reduced chaotic environment will benefit him. The Staff are very understanding of his situation and have been taking great strides to amalgamate him into their tranquil lifestyle. Physicians are on hand through a minor surcharge to routinely assess the residents. Susan Masters and Jennifer Peterein are the administrators, the former being the owner of this enterprise. They were very willing to take my Dad into their fold and work with his dementia issues whereas the staff were very inconsistent at the Crofton Convalescence Center and rude with my Dad at times that I personally witnessed. I am hoping this excellent environment will continue to benefit him. I was very lucky to get my Dad enrolled with them. I understand there is a bit of a waiting list. If Autumn Meadows is full there is always the Waugh Chapel Genesis facility which took great care of my Mom for the last two weeks of her life. However, there is a huge difference between both facilities. The cost factors alone at the Waugh Chapel location are very steep but they provide excellent care. My Mom's cost would have been about 12K a month if she had not passed away even though she had robust insurance from her PG County Schools benefits. Autumn Meadows's monthly charges range from 2 to 3 grand depending on the specific care each resident requires. They are a non-profit. Both Susan and Jennifer have been been willing to explore a variety of actions to make my Dad feel welcome and address his issues. Both Susan and Jennifer have personally taken the responsibility to make sure each resident is fulfilled on a case by case standard. Susan has taken on patients from other facilities and has the final decision on who may reside at her facilities even if her decisions are contrary to conventional medical attitudes. They appear to take every measure to retain their residents in a very thoughtful and willing way. She has managed to become affiliated with a broad map of medical services dedicated to her facilities that again do not involve extreme charges. I highly recommend their services even if my Dad ends up not being in the realm of what they can offer. Lastly, there is a dedicated nurse who actually lives at the facility along with the residents.
