I recently toured the property. It was an older hospital that has been updated into an assisted living community. The rooms are big and the staff were friendly. There is a huge garden in the middle of the building which is really nice.

sherry s - Loved one of resident
Where do I even begin? I was searching for a place with a caring office staff, employees, clean rooms, good food, security, room options, and transition to memory care, good location, a manager who knows and cares about the residents, take time to know them, fun activities, offer church services, and the smiles on faces of residents. Well, I found it at The Summit Senior Living. I took my mom there and just registered my mother-in-law. She was not doing well health wise but within a month, with managed medicine, therapy, three good meals a day she looked like a completely different person. [Employee name], the nurse, has been very sweet and caring. I recently drove my mother-in-law all over looking at the highest reviewed assisted living locations in the valley. We looked at Summit first and then spent the next two days touring other places. A decision was made, and I quote my mother-in-law, "I choose Summit, it is cozy, warm and welcoming. They will know me by name and not just a number or $, they really care, you just feel it." The young man at the main desk was always upbeat and smiling when we walked in, he made such an impression on us. [Manager name], I’ve not met anyone like you, you are a unique manager, you are not fake, you see what you get, a really kindhearted person. P.S. A bonus is walking distance to a drug store and food. Thank you for the peace of mind Summit. You are truly amazing. Would add a 6th star if I could.
