At Autumn Lodge our aim is to provide our community with a place they can call home. We respect and value each resident’s individual emotional, cultural, social and physical needs, and our staff are committed to meeting these requirements. We encourage each resident and their family and significant other to actively participate in any decision making process that affects the lifestyle choices through all stages of the care continuum.
