Autumn Senior Living Continues Regional Expansion with Three New Communities

Autumn Senior Living, LLC breaks ground on three new I-Lite Assisted Living and Memory Care communities in Florida, bringing nearly 400 senior residences, over 200 permanent jobs, and a combined $100 million in capital investments.

Autumn is introducing I-Lite Assisted Living to Brandon, Westchase, and Sarasota. According to Jim Soper, Autumn’s CEO, “Residents live the independent life they love with the desired services brought to them in the community. We’ll have great restaurants and cafés. The restaurants will serve delicious old time favorites, like beef tenderloin, and fabulous, healthy choices, including Mediterranean and gluten-free menus.”

“Autumn is a Wonderful Way to Live.” Jim continued, “We are not just meeting the demand, we are exceeding it by engaging our residents in life. They enjoy live music every day and have fun. We’ll go out to the theater, like Cirque Du Soleil, go fishing and to concerts. When your family visits, they’ll say, ‘Can we move in here?’”

“Compassionate care is our brand promise,” says Jim. “We work for our residents. Autumn Care is 24/7 and discrete. Concierge Service brings the comforts of home to residents. We adapt to the resident’s needs, wants, and desires. Nursing is around-the-clock and supported by a highly trained staff.”

Brandon and Westchase build on Autumn of Sarasota Memory Care’s tremendous reputation for care. Autumn continues its commitment to provide residents a safe and secure place to live, surrounded by love. And they have fun! Autumn Memory Care residences were designed in cooperation with the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute – a leader in dementia research.

The three communities are expected to be completed in early 2018.
