Karen was very helpful and informative and reiterated all that Mary Ann had told me originally on the phone. I found Summer Place clean, but had two concerns: 1 - strong cigarette smoke smell in one corridor off dining area; was advised that residents are allowed to smoke in their apartments; 2 - since we toured on Wednesday, there were only about 20 people in the dining room which surprised me... could not get a real feel for the types of residents that live here. Overall appearance was very nice and was told that common areas are in process to be updated in the fairly near future. I was actually very disappointed when I read the reviews from residents and their families on the issues being experienced, especially with management turnover rate.

Management needs to turn things around

A relative of mine has been a resident of Summer Place for about a year. In that time there have been numerous managers that stay as little as a few months and then leave. As new managers come and go the quality of services and food declines and they become less responsive to addressing resident concerns. The residents have been treated like children when they complain about decreases in services. The management is unresponsive to resident’s complaints and tells them to come see them individually so they can quell the complaints - divide and conquer. They have meetings to air their concerns and the present managers apparently have decided to run things their own way regardless of the fact the residents are paying increased rents. The amount and choices of food is less than it was a year ago. A recent meal I shared with my relative had a pork chop 3/8ths of an inch thick, 2" by 3" and dry as a bone. There was a scoop of mashed potatoes the size of a melon ball scoop - NO exaggeration! I seriously doubt the meals satisfy the daily nutrition requirements as the portions are extremely small. Their website boasts “3 meals a day” but it would take 2 days to get 3 FULL meals. The quality of food has seriously declined in the last year. I can't believe that the corporate offices allow this treatment and mismanagement to continue or maybe corporate IS the problem forcing the managers to squeeze more profit out of the facility and that is why they can’t keep managers in the place. I also notice how responsive they are to counter some negative reviews I found online but they refuse to acknowledge the residents and try to make them happy as their website boasts.
