The services provided by Summit Woods are great. With assisted living on an "as-number- of-hours-needed" basis, my parents are allowed to be on independent living (Dad) and assisted living(Mom) in the same apartment. The people there are very friendly and with daily activities to pick from, there are always things to do. The employees care about the residents and want to meet the needs of the people living there. Some time in the future, my husband and I want to live there!

Their food is lacking, in choice, but it's a new addition. They have a huge amount of activities. They are very responsive as far as management is concerned. It's independent and assisted so it has more of an independent feel but there is care available if or when it's needed.
A good communityreviewed on: 05/19/2014 by Anonymous
They have a catholic mass every Sunday, which is important to my loved ones. They have bridge – so the activities calendar looks really good. . There is enough parking. The staff have all been friendly and the community is clean. They said the place would be ready, but it wasn’t ready on time. They prorated the rent.
Good Size and Activity Levelreviewed on: 11/26/2013 by Daughter-in-Law
I was impressed with their activity level and the size of it. It was very small. I think it only had 70 residents. The only detraction was the distance from our house. It would have taken us too long to get there. It could use updating decoration-wise. The cabinetry was dark. I think it used to be a regular apartment building that they converted to assisted living. I was surprised to see they had stove tops. Usually in situation like that there wouldn't be stove tops in the apartments. I was worried that would be a little bit dangerous for my father-in-law because he might start cooking something and forget to turn the stove top off.
