Highly recommend

We have been very happy with Summit Place. We chose them because of the convenient location. The room sizes at the facility are adequate for what she needs. Everyone here has been very friendly. I would recommend them to others

Highly recommend Summit Place

The staff members have been extremely accommodating and I have been very happy with that. The situation has been made difficult by covid and due to the fact that I am out of state. Communication is critical and that has been very good, the move in coordinator has been wonderful as far as that goes. They have done a wonderful job letting me know what is going on and they were very prompt in letting me know when he needed to be transported to the hospital and responded in a positive way in getting him services he needed. They do have a good nursing staff and a physical therapy department, All of their residents are vaccinated and they have not had any severe outbreaks, so they have been good with keeping things under control. I would absolutely recommend them to others who are looking.

The best facility of it's kind in the area.

I have visited Summit Place several l times with the Calabash Elks Veterans Affairs Committee. We bring donuts, cookies, juices, etc. and enjoy visiting with the residents. I have never seen a cleaner and more happy place than this one. The staff is great and very attentive to the residents, The folks all seem to be happy being there. When it's my time, that's where I want to go. It's almost like being home.

Summit place came highly recommended After just a few days of having our family member placed there they were very quick to judge and wanted to place Her in a different wing and charge extra money. They do not check on them and keep them dry they do not offer them something to drink they are dehydrated. They pick and choose their favorites And those people get special Care the rest get pushed to the wayside. They are taken to the dining room 45 minutes before they're actually serve their food and they just sit there. I watch the woman in the dining room in the afternoon walk around and ask everybody what they wanted for lunch and dinner the next day and never ask my family member the food here is subpar the Care is subpar and the majority of the staff is extremely rude. Care and dedication of the staff was so poor We removed our family member after just two weeks. I would not recommend this place to anyone

Selected facility after visiting facilities in NJ and SC. Cost, atmosphere and closeness to family home in NC where driving factors. Staff and residents were friendly and will be a welcome up-lifting experience to Mom's current at home arrangement that was isolating and lonely.

The nurses are wonderful. Meals are pretty good. Overall the place is clean, but I don't think my moms bathroom is cleaned very well. The morning aid is just great with my mom. The evening aid is lazy and I think she needs more training. Pretty much everyone is very friendly!

I think the only thing is when my loved one says she needs something, it is not looked at as quickly as she would like. Everybody has been friendly, there are activities, I am impressed with the place.

Wonderful Summit Place!

My mom was lucky enough to reside at Summit Place for several years. The cheerful environment, opportunities for varied activities (even bus tours and outings to local restaurants!) and quality meals made it a perfect choice for her. Our FAVORITE part, though, was the caring and kind staff! Every person we interacted with provided excellent care and treated my mom, and all residents, with dignity. Our family appreciates all they did for my mom. We can never thank them enough.

Summit Place is beautiful, leaving very little to be desired. It is comparatively new, bright and airy. Residents appeared to be happy and well cared for. I can picture myself residing there.

Nice place, overall

We've had a good experience overall with Summit Place of North Myrtle Beach! It is a nice looking, clean facility, and the staff have all been very friendly and helpful. Really my only complaint is that I wish the staff were a little more proactive about my loved one changing clothes. If I don't remind him he will end up wearing the same thing all week.

Very nice but just a little too big.

This is one of the places I looked at when I was touring. They were all pretty comparable that I saw. They were all very nice and clean. The staff was friendly. This place was just a little too big though. There were too many corridors, and I felt like I might get lost, let alone someone who might be a little confused.

They’ve been wonderful.

They’ve been wonderful. It’s a very caring place. The staff is very great and very, very helpful. My mom loves it there. She loves the foot which is restaurant quality food. Parking is fine, never had any problem with that. There are several outside areas for residents to enjoy.

Mom (age 91) lived here Jan-Oct. 2012

Don't let them kid you - they do very little for your loved one and are understaffed. Very few activities, food is fair. Some of the staff is wonderful & caring, but some are downright mean. Management does nothing when brought to their attention. My Mom would have been better served in a nursing home. We chose this facility because it impressed us on the tour, was close to our home, doctors and hospitals, reached out to dementia patients and had an Alzheimer's wing, but Mom was not delighted after the 1st month (Jan.2012). She moved here from independent living when she needed a bit of assistance bathing, she got around very well & sometimes needed a walker, was a good conversationalist and had the beginning stages of dementia. 30 days later she was in real trouble. Summit was quarantined due to a norovirus outbreak. The place was not staffed to handle it, and she subsequently became dehydrated, had a stroke, leaving her with expressive aphasia and now required using her walker to walk. They assured us they could still care for her. It was hard to communicate with her, but she seemed to indicate they were not caring for her properly. 9/15/12 she fell in their hallway after a staff member gave her a "high-five" and she fractured both shoulders and a knee which left her bed ridden, but they insisted they could still care for her. A week later it was clear they could not, so we hired in private help in the day-time. They lied just to get our money and it took us a month to place her in a nursing home.
