Is the Time Right for Senior Living?

Senior living offers a lifestyle built on amenities and services that will keep you feeling your best. If you are feeling lonely at home or isolated from regular social opportunities, senior living can give you the connection you are seeking. If you are looking for peace of mind, you’ll find quick access to team members round the clock. If you are ready to feel good, feel confident, and make new friends, then senior living is right for you.

It Begins with a Conversation

Finding a senior living community begins by talking about it with your loved ones or friends. Your physician may mention the option, your family members may tentatively bring it up, or you may take control and advocate for your own desire to choose the Summit lifestyle. Our team members are ready to answer your questions at every step of your senior living journey.

More Affordable Than You May Think

Senior living is likely much more affordable than you may think. When you take into consideration your current mortgage, utility bills, landscaping or other home-maintenance costs, and other fees you pay to attend your favorite activities or go out to eat, senior living often costs less monthly — and gets you access to so much more! Let us help you discover additional programs, such as veteran’s benefits, that could help offset assisted living and dementia care costs.

Getting Started FAQs

I don’t know anyone who lives in your community. How can I make new friends?

There are always friendly faces at Summit! Our residents tend to become fast friends, and you can meet new friends easily. Try joining one of our community clubs, attending a social program, or simply saying hello to a few new people you see in the halls.

How do I know which type of senior living is best for me?

We’d love to help guide you through that decision. Our team can learn more about you and any challenges or worries you may have before you decide to move. We have years of experience and can confidently lead you in the direction of the senior living option that is best for you.

Summit of Uptown offers three types of senior living options on one campus: independent living, assisted living, and dementia care. No matter where you live, you will enjoy the amenities, the activities, and the Summit  lifestyle, including personalized care and deep connections with those around you. However, assisted living and dementia care offer more specialized care and additional assistance, which is ideal if you could benefit from easy access to caregivers, or are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia.

I’m a bit shy. Do I have to attend group activities?

At Summit, you always get to make your own decisions! We know everyone has unique personalities and preferences, and our team works hard to develop opportunities everyone will enjoy. You may choose to skip out on large group activities but participate in a lecture or book club. If you don’t see something that interests you, tell us! We are always looking for new ideas.

How do I schedule a tour?

We’d love to meet you and show you what life is like inside Summit of Uptown! Call our team to schedule a tour or to set up a time to join in on an activity or a meal. We would love to introduce you to some of the residents and staff that make Summit so special.

I have a special diet. Can I still eat in the dining room?

Our chefs are trained and prepared to offer a variety of entree options for any diet. Our dining team strives to cook healthy meals with very little added sugar and no added salt — but with plenty of flavor! We cater to many different tastes and dietary needs, and will work hard to help you meet your health goals.

Is there a buy-in fee?

You won’t have to worry about a buy-in fee when you choose Summit. Instead, you pay for the services you need when you need them, month by month.

Can I come and go as I please?

Absolutely! You can head out to meet your friends at a favorite restaurant or attend a family dinner. For the safety of our dementia care residents, our Evergreen neighborhood is secured. Residents can still go out, but need to be accompanied by a staff member, family member, or friend.

Are meals included?

Assisted living and dementia care services feature three chef-prepared meals each day in our social dining room so that you can enjoy meals with your friends and neighbors. Independent living residents enjoy breakfast plus their choice of lunch or dinner every day. Want to share your meal experience with family members or friends? We’d love to serve them as well. You can order guest meals for your visitors to enjoy in the dining room as well.

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.
