I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in Autumn Wood. We are Northeast Oklahoma’s premier Alzheimer’s and dementia nursing facility. Tucked away in an idyllic, wooded backdrop in Claremore, Oklahoma, Autumn Wood is located in the ideal place to allow our residents to have the peace and tranquility needed to promote optimal functioning and a relaxed lifestyle beneficial to those afflicted with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
We officially opened our doors on November 1st, 2012. Every detail of our facility was developed with our residents in mind. We were designed from the ground up to offer the high level of care that families and residents expect from a modern nursing facility, but we wanted to accomplish this all while making Autumn Wood not feel like a nursing home. This was accomplished by using the neighborhood model instead of having the long, institutional-feeling hallways in traditional nursing homes. We have 5 individual neighborhoods, with 12 rooms per neighborhood for a total of 60 rooms. The neighborhood concept is quieter, more intimate, less confusing and more home-like than the traditional nursing home design. Each neighborhood has a private dining room, and residents dine with 12 of their peers, rather than with the one hundred plus residents typically found in a large, shared dining room in a traditional nursing facility. There are many other details about our design and philosophy that must be seen to understand, but I can assure you that every design was made with our residents in mind.
Take your time and explore our website; we hope you find it informative, and we hope it can assist you in making a nursing facility placement decision for your loved one. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact an admission representative, and we will walk you through the admission process.
