The People

From our first days of envisioning this Life Plan community, we wanted to build a senior living environment that would offer retirees the sense of community and peace of mind to fully engage in the freedom and joys of life. Each day, the residents live that vision in their own way, bringing with them great experiences which creates this special place. 

Many of the greatest qualities of this community were started or inspired by our residents. Dedicated to supporting their active role in this community, we hold monthly Town Meetings among the Residents’ Council, each of its committees, and a member of the staff. That clear communication is an important part of our vision to provide an environment to be engaged in life.

Critical to this vision has always been a commitment that no person will be asked to leave The Summit for financial reasons beyond their control. The Summit Benevolent Fund was formed to provide the financial support needed, should a resident experience unexpected circumstances. This is one way The Summit exemplifies community in the best sense of that word.
