Fall prep isn't extensive. Remove infected leaves if there is any black spot; remove dead, damaged or diseased wood; water all throughout fall if there isn't adequate rain; and mulch the crown with 4-6 inches of compost or topsoil or bark mulch. Leaves don't make a good mulch unless they are shredded/chopped first. (Remove crown mulch in early spring.) If I knew the type of rose you have and where you live, I might add more but I've listed the crucial aspects of winterizing roses.
