Autumn focuses on licensed assisted living communities:
- Memory care for residents with Alzheimer’s and other dementia 50-80 residences.
- Assisted living communities of 80-120 residences. These communities offer larger residences, more amenities for residents who are interested in maintaining their lifestyle yet have assisted living services available.
These communities may be combined into one campus or built independently. Autumn’s target markets are Tampa Bay south to Naples, Florida’s East Coast and the Orlando area. Other areas would be considered within Florida only opportunistically. Autumn is looking to develop a minimum of eight projects within the next 5 years.
Assisted living is the best way to take advantage of the silver tsunami. While there are plenty of opportunities in today’s real estate market, few offer operating cash flow against a solid market. Assisted living does.

Autumn has decades of experience in the Tampa Bay market and understands the local market.
