Reviews of Summit at Brighton
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I have been visiting The Summit for a quite some time now and one of the things that I always think about when I think of this community or am getting ready to go back for another visit is about how much fun the residents have in this community. They are very active and sweet people, they love doing things together and like to be involved in things around the community, both The Summit community and the Rochester community. They like to keep busy and feel like they have a purpose, like they are making a difference somehow, or helping someone in some way. They really love getting involved in volunteering projects and in community events. It doesn't matter what the project or event entails - they just love getting out there and being a part of it. They can find fun in everything they do which can be contagious to all around them. They are really fun and optimistic people to know and I have had such a great time getting to know them!
The staff members at the greatest. They treat the residents like they're royalty, they are so accommodating and also very creative in the methods and techniques they use to care for the residents. They are always doing something to try and make life better or easier for the residents. They are a very inventive care team with some excellent ideas on how to better care for the residents. I just wish that the management team would actually take the time to not only listen to the staffs' ideas but to also take them seriously. That bothers me a lot - I have had staff members tell me of some fantastic ideas and if implemented I am sure they would better the community, but I have seen them and their ideas be blown off time and time again. Eventually they are going to become discouraged and stop going to management with their suggestions altogether, I know I would. However, other than that issue the staff members seem to be very happy with their jobs and it is plain to see that they just absolutely adore the residents.
The community is very nice, very homelike and simple - just the way I think a community should be. There are many places for the residents and their families to gather and they do often, Families are always welcome, always invited to community events, and they are also encouraged to participate in residents activities. The staff want to see the family members as comfortable in the community as the residents, they want the families to also feel at home and to feel welcome, accepted, and included in The Summit family. From what I have seen it seems like the families do feel this comfortable within the community. They seem comfortable around the other residents and the staff as well.
The Summit at Brighton is a wonderful and happy home, a fun home for the residents. The residents are amazing people and they always look forward to new residents moving in to the community so that they can befriend them and help them become comfortable with in the community. The residents here are very proud of their community and they love showing it off to those seeing it for the first time. So if you decide to tour, be ready to meet a bunch of happy, friendly, and helpful "tour guides"!
I visited this facility
I visited the Summit with my parents a few years ago, when my grandmother was considering moving to the area and was weighing the pros and cons of assisted living facilities. Although she did not end up residing in this facility, to me it seemed to be a wonderful, warm community with a great number of top-notch amenities, friendly and active residents, and an extremely competent staff. One thing that seemed to be very well-planned about the Summit was its very close proximity to a nursing home, meaning that, should residents eventually need an increased level of care, they would not have to be greatly uprooted from their homes, and would still be able to maintain relationships that they had formed with other residents. On the whole, the Summit seemed to me to be an excellent community, with a great number of features that made it stand out from the rest.
