Fee for Service

Our commitment to The Summit residents starts during the search process. That's why we share our Fee Schedule with you up-front. As a fee-for-service organization, you pay for only what you need when you need it.

Cost is an important part of your decision for senior living  and so is the culture of the community you choose.  At The Summit, we want to set the expectation for how we will work with you and your family.

We are an organization of real people who care about real people. We encourage feedback, because without it we can't do the best job for the residents and their families.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (434) 582-1500.
