Summer Place has been absolutely fantastic. A fantastic choice. I can't say enough good about it. If a person had a restrictive diet, such as lactose intolerant, gluten-free, and so on, I don't know how they would accommodate that. But I would say that for any place. I do not have any diet restrictions, so for me, they have met all my needs, and I think it's a fantastic place.... Read more

Recommend it 100%

She loves that utilities are included. She feels safe, and can have her dog there. She does worry about the rent going up. The staff is really friendly, you can go in and see her whenever. She is very happy here and is close to her family. She likes that everyone age ranges all the way up to age 95. It is very welcoming. I have not seen her this happy in a long time.

Beautiful facility, very expensive

The manager [name removed] and front desk gal [name removed] are great people. It is just outrageously expensive for what you get. The employees are very good at what they do, but nursing staff hired to come in seems click. The facility is very beautiful and clean. The residents and staff are always friendly, staff also know everyone by name. The price has increased a lot in just a couple of months and we were not notified that that was going to be happening. I do also think they could provide more activities based on the residents level of care.

The thing that makes Summer Place stick out above and a beyond other facilities we looked at is their staff members, they are right on top of things. I would highly recommend them to others looking.

Good Community

I would encourage you to check out this community. There are social aspects to this community. They will make it easier on your loved one by providing meals and housekeeping once a week. The staff that work here are very helpful. There are some activities available for the residents. There are chairs out front to socialize along as well as in the dining room. The biggest complaint my loved ones have is the food. The meals don't come out hot and it seems very repetitive in meal options. There was a change to the meals in the last 6-8 weeks.

Mom has regained a lot of her old enthusiasm

Living alone for twenty years before moving into Summer Place, Mom’s enthusiasm for life had waned. Now it’s largely back. She’s going for walks again instead of just sitting around her apartment, has made the first real friends she’s had in years, and is eating better. She went from a two-bedroom apartment to a studio with hardly any problem- in fact, it’s easier for her to function and she’s less confused with less room and “stuff” to worry about. The staff is very friendly. From Day 1 she said she likes the food, which is so important because her diet was terrible living alone. And they have a van service for appointments- a life saver!

i great place for your loved one

The location is great and the community has a good value for your money. Communication could be better. My loved one really loves the food and I would recommend this community to others. They have had a good covid plan and have kept the residence safe.

Summer Place is the Place to Go When the Need Arises

Go take a tour. There is some turnover, but not much. When people move in, they tend to stay there. Your loved one will definitely enjoy it. They've been offering lots of activities, despite the Covid situation. The staff is very nice, and they definitely cater to your loved one. They're certainly better at dealing with day to day issues than I could be. They're very caring and nurturing. We looked at other places, and based on what Summer Place offers, Summer Place seems like the best value.

I would recommend

We chose Summer Place at the time because it was affordable and the location to family. The apartment sizes here are nice, she is in a glorified studio and it really works for her. I have heard others residents also talk about how they enjoy their apartment size. The residents have not received their covid shots yet. Another issue we have had is they are short staffed quite a lot. I do think the facility itself needs some cosmetic updating. Overall, I would recommend them.

Improvement needed

Very cozy place to live. The rooms are bright and cheery! The building needs a facelift to keep up with all the other independent care facilities in same area. The food needs much improvement. It is awful. I also feel staff (management) should be there overnight. At one time the managers (2) lived at Summer Place. Felt way more secure having my Dad living there at that time. All staff go home at 7:30. No one available for folks living there after that. I feel that yearly increases in rent should never exceed 3 percent. That is reasonable. This year it was more than 6 percent, with no renovations or updates to the place, that I feel is needed. Last year it was close to 6 percent also. Way to much for these elders with limited funds.

Dingy Place!!

I had recently taken a tour of this community for my parents and I was not impressed at all of what I had seen. I ended up not even taking my parents to look at it after my first impression of the facility. It was a very depressing atmosphere and felt like I was in a ghost town when I had walked in. Everything was out of date and the carpets as well as the wall paper just seemed like it had not been changed in decades. Another thing I was not very pleased with was the staff. They where not very professional during our visit and just was not flexible in any of the questions I had for them. I would not want my parents living in a place like this one.

Good Tour Of This Community

We toured this community for my sister, and her needs. We had a pleasant tour. Everyone was kind to my family, and I. The community was clean, and appeared to be well maintained. It was a good experience, but we did find another community that my sister was more fond of.

Lovely Tour, But Not The Right Fit For My Love One

I had a nice tour of this retirement community. Everyone was kind, and friendly to me. The community was nice, and clean from what I saw. The staff I met was kind, and helpful. They answered my questions, and the experience went well overall. Unfortunately my love one needed more care than they were able to provide.
