I looked at several places in Lynchburg and was very pleased with what I saw at the Summit. I wanted a place that not only offered independent living but was continuing care. At the Summit, I felt it was small enough to feel at home and I was impressed with the offering of various floor plans, cleaning, meals, transportation, community events, and many more. I chose a small apartment, which has been very comfortable for me.

My husband passed away in 2011. After he died, my life was empty and I definitely did not like living alone. My children lived near Lynchburg, but I did not want to live with either of them and be a burden. I was in my mid 70s and felt I needed to find a continuing care facility in which I could be comfortable.

I've lived here for three years, and found that my decision was a good one. The residents are like family and close friends. Many of us care for each other and check on one another on a daily basis. The staff members are friendly and will help with any and every problem. I cannot say enough about the beautifully landscaped ground, walking paths, and scenic lake. We all have games to enjoy, programs we can take part in, events in town  we can attend, and worship services on a weekly basis. We can never be bored at The Summit. I am definitely a happy camper.
