Friendly, cozy place for your loved one.

Like all communities and all businesses they are short handed. They are trying to handle things the best that they can. They are not getting the quality of workers that they would like at this time but everyone is dealing with this at this time.

The best!

My mother was a resident at Autumn Leaves GURNEE from April 2019 until her death in June. Her Alzheimer’s had advanced to the point where I could no longer care for her in my home since I was also caring for both my disabled husband and son. I can’t say enough good things about the staff of Autumn Leaves. They understood my circumstances and gave my mother wonderful care while also giving me support. They allowed me to be just my mother’s daughter again which was the greatest gift! I wouldn’t think twice about placing another family member there if the need arose and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs care for a loved one suffering from dementia!

They have a true heart of the special needs required of Alzheimer's and dementia residents and take every step to provide them with a healthy active secure lifestyle. The residents seemed happy and comfortable with their living space. The staff fabulous with the residents. Loved the way all corridors lead to central areas. I also liked the single level living as opposed to multi level living

They encourage the residents to join activities...

As far as I know, my mother is adjusting well. It is such a new experienced, so it is hard to know. I see her every other day and she's eating better than she was at home. I would recommend this community because of the care, but obviously that depend on what people are looking for. They offer various activities and things to do but my mother is not much of a joiner. I know they try to encourage her without forcing her and she will hang out and watch sometimes. What I liked while touring was that they are strictly memory care, and only have about 40 residents. It gave her more chances to fit in.

We need more stars!

5 stars just doesn't seem enough when rating Autumn Leaves of Gurnee. We transitioned my grandmother here after a poor experience at another local nursing care facility. From the very beginning, the staff at Autumn Leaves Gurnee has been terrific. A move of this type is stressful for the family as well as the resident. I can't say enough about [Removed] who made this transition quite a pleasant experience. Since the move, the care my grandmother has received has been excellent. The nursing staff care and communication is also terrific. [Removed] keep us well informed regarding my grandmother's health and have been always available for a health consultation. [Removed], Executive Director of Autumn Leaves Gurnee, is nothing short of amazing. She cares deeply for the residents and goes above and beyond what we would have ever expected. The staff is always warm and welcoming when we visit and are very attentive to the residents. We researched a dozen different housing options in the area and Autumn Leaves of Gurnee stood out among them all. Our experience since moving in has shown this to be a great decision for my grandmother. I could not recommend them highly enough!

We have good communication.

Mom seems to like the food at Autumn Leaves. The residents are friendly and she is making new friends. The community is gorgeous and it is a nice environment. The staff are wonderful, encouraging and attentive. They try to do whatever they can to make sure the residents are well cared for. They offer daily activities and mom seems to enjoy participating in some of them. She is walking better since moving in and I would recommend this community.

Mom has made amazing progress in less then 3 weeks

My mother had been in another facility for almost 2 years when she moved to Autumn Leaves about 2 weeks ago. When she got there she wasn't speaking or walking, slept most of the time and spent most of her time in the wheel chair, and was almost total care. From day one the staff noted that it was very hard to wake her up and to keep her awake. Slight changes were made and now she is allowed to sleep until she chooses to wake on her own. She is talking again. They encourage her to walk and her legs are getting stronger. She is a concert pianist and hadn't played in 2 years, she has started to play again. The people at Autumn leaves have been amazing. She even says she like the food.

Keep your loved one at home

[Removed]. I would not recommend for anyone to place their loved one at Autumn Leaves as I feel the care is not good. The caregivers do not have the knowledge or compassion toward the residents that they deserve. There is not proper oversite of residents. Wish I had kept my Mother in her own home. Biggest mistake I've ever made.

Would not recommend...

We toured this community when looking for my mother. The staff needs more training on awareness of each resident's ability levels and accommodating that. Offering an environment that recognizes every resident is different. The atmosphere should be more fluid.

Very Close to Me

I found a home in the community for my patient. It is always very clean. The staff have been providing the care he needs. I liked that it is around the corner from my house so it is easy to get to. After an incident which lead him to be in a wheelchair he will need more care. It was good here during his time.

New Community!!

The meals are good they have a wide variety. The staff is nice. It's a clean community. I wish there was a little more communication between them and the family. It would be nice of the staff if they could try to do more activities with my mom. That way she wouldn't have to sit in front of the television all day. The effort of activities is not very good it doesn't seem like they put an effort.

A nice cozy community!!!

This community is a newer community and they have already had a high level of turnovers. Things are left out and they are sloppy. I have come in to find dirty diapers on the floor. My mom does not get her baths as often as she should. There have been some growing pains with the kitchen and the food. I have had nothing but issues with this community since she moved in. They are slow to open and slow to fill. It is a nice community as it is about 6 months old.
