My husband was a resident of Summit Place of Anderson a little over a year ago. I was very happy with the care he received. He was in the memory care unit until he passed. My daughter and I would stop in at all times of the day or night. The staff that took care of him were wonderful to him and to us. As it happens when you have employees not every one has a residents well being high on there agenda. But at Summit Place of Anderson if I had any issue it was addressed and taken care of immediately. Most of the workers are wonderful caring people. The night my husband passed several that were on duty that night cried with us.

I visited Summit. The staff was nice and showed me around. The room was adequate. The common dining area was OK. However, it was too far for me to drive.

My husband is in the Summit Place. He seems to be well cared for. I think the accommodation is comfortable for him. He has a nice bed, a nice chair, and a private room. So, it is very comfortable for him. He is happy, and that’s what counts. I think that he participates in some of the singing.

I really liked the look of Summit Place. We heard negative reviews from a couple of friends, but the people were very nice and very accommodating. The rooms were beautiful. They had a calendar of activities, which seemed pretty varied.

The staff was very friendly and helpful during my visit at Summit Place. It's a beautiful place, and it?s like a home. I like that they have everything I needed, but just very far from where I live.

Summit Place of Anderson was very pleasant and clean, and we've had a better look at it lately because we visited our neighbors who moved there. The rooms were quite adequate. The staff were very qualified and were able to answer your questions. The monthly calendar that's up on the wall has everything. They have movie afternoons and parties.

Summit Place is literally across the street from where I live. It was very nice, but I didn't like the entrance way. The nurse was OK, but I didn't really warm up to her. She sort of rubbed me the wrong way. Their facility was nice. With regards to activities, they had baby dolls. They had the common eating area. Their layout was kind of a nautical-type theme in the memory care. The room that I saw was not any larger than the one in the other facility I saw.

I think Summit Place is an excellent facility. I would recommend this facility to anyone. All facilities have unhappy and happy families. I know first hand because my loved one has been there for a while and is given excellent care. The caregivers and managers have always responded promptly to any questions, or concerns I may have had. My mother passed away in memory care and was treated exceptionally well. Some of the caregivers complained about her being there and would tell me " she needs to be in a nursing home" but with the caring staff, DON and hospice my mom was able to be at home; as she wanted from the beginning. All the managers and their entities, was always helpful. Placing a loved one in a facility is a difficult thing to do and Summit Place provided reassurance that I needed the entire way. It's hard to find caregivers that are working because they care and want to help. All the caregivers display a caring touch and always makes you feel like your loved one is the only one there. Summit Place....... Thanks for all that you did for my mom!!!!

This is an Assisted Living/Alzheimer's Care Facility. I could not find any reviews on it, but checked out the other facilities in the area that had reviews and decided that this was the best facility for my mother. I researched everything. My mother started in the Alzheimer's area after having been released from the hospital and the nursing home from a bought with a UTI and bowel impaction. We then moved her about a 1 1/2 months ago to Summit Place and she has been given excellent care. After she was in the Alzheimer's area, she started to get a little better so they told us they thought she would do better in the Assisted Living, so we moved her, and she is very happy there. She is social and active, although her Lewy Body Dementia flares up quite a bit. We appreciate the love and caring they give her there. The facility is clean, updated, and very nice. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
