Dear Julie,  Please accept our sincere thanks for your care and compassion for our Mother, Dorothy. We were so thrilled to be able to obtain a room for her in March of 2010. Although she really did not know much about her surroundings, Pat and I felt it was the right place for her.

I can tell that all of Mom’s caregivers truly “care” about my mom’s comfort level. They express heartfelt concern when that’s appropriate but what I love the most is that they “celebrate” the small improvements and wonderful moments when Mom really surprises us with her wonderful smile and witty sayings and facial expressions.


Thanks so much for all you did to make Mom comfortable. She delighted in your special interest in her and she even remembered your name late in her battle with Alzheimers when other names couldn’t be recalled.

“I especially want to commend Julie, manager of the Woodland’s AutumnGrove Cottage. During the storm she managed the home with quiet efficiency, poise and compassion -despite the many challenges she faced during the storm and the days that followed”


I’ve seen so many homes, facilities, cottages, whatever one wants to call them these days. AutumnGrove stands out from all the rest! It’s a long drive, not convenient at all, but I know each time I leave, my dad is loved, cared for, Well fed, clean, SAFE and HAPPY!!!


“You have been helpful, caring and loving and I hope you know what a difference that has made for my mom and our family!”


“i would very much like to say how thankful I am to have Marilynn at AutumnGrove Cottage Champions as my manager.


We are thankful for AutumnGrove and especially Marilyn (Champions Cottage) for taking such good care of Helen!! Thank you for all you do!! We always know she’s in great hands.


Mom passed away at AutumnGrove on January 13th of this year. And honestly, I don’t know how I would have made it through her death without Julie’s help, compassion and dedication.
