"We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful friendship and support you gave my Dad. He loved living here and did so fully, vibrantly, and independently. Your kind, compassionate, professional care was so very much appreciated. With just the right amount of activities, intellectual stimulation, fun, and respectful, loving care, the Summit provided my Dad with a comfortable, happy home. He flourished here. As he often said, "This is the answer for me."


Daughter of Nat B.

"The Summit has the best people caring for everyone and they all have a great personality, sense of humor and a very caring soul. So I just want to send all of you a big THANK YOU and GOD BLESS."


Niece of John B.

"I've lived here for a few months and I want to commend all the staff, particularly the aides, for being so helpful and, most importantly, for always having big smiles."


Dan N. Resident
