Assisted Living Reviews for Summit Assisted Living

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have visited several assisted living facilites in the Lynchburg area, and the Summitt is by far the nicest that I have seen. All of the staff there are very nice and clean. Every time I visited I did not have problems with anyone. The facility is very very clean which is something many facilities do not have. The Summitt allowed my Grandfather to have assitence but at the same time feel like he was at home. He loved it there. The Summitt is located in a beautiful neightborhood so it is a great area to walk. All of the rooms looked brand new, and the food was exceptionallt good. I really have nothing negative to say about the Summitt. Everything was positive especially when you compare it to other facilties that are so dirty. The building and landscape was well kept, and employees were not outside smoking like I have seen at some facilities. All of the elderly there seemed to be happy and enjoy the time. They also have many daily activities to keep everyone active which seemed to be very enjoyable for most of the people.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father was a resident at The Summit in Lynchburg, Virginia. The staff was very caring and very friendly to family members. The facility was spotless and provided a very welcome and classy atmosphere. There were plenty of planned activities covering a broad spectrum of interests for the residents. The food was also very good. The Summit is located in Wyndhurst. This is the perfect location for family members to escape to take in a little shopping or to just have a change of scenery and grab a bite to eat. It is also a great place to wheel residents up and down the paved sidewalks for a breath of fresh air. The Summit feels almost like home. It offers a front porch for residents and family members to watch the comings and goings. There are also landscaped patios to enjoy. Even around the holidays or special occasions, there are rooms you can reserve to enjoy a private family get-together. Under the circumstances, The Summit is a great place to reside when the need arises.

I visited this facility

I visited this facility while searching for a placement for my grandmother, who was in need of care in the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease. I was impressed by the attractiveness of the grounds and also the friendliness of the staff. The Summit is located in a lovely part of Lynchburg, off of Enterprise Drive, and offers a great deal of privacy and quiet for its residents. Although we chose a different placement for my grandmother (I wanted her to be closer to my home), I was still quite impressed with this facility and would recommend it to anyone searching for an assisted living program with a strong spiritual care component and an excellent record of client satisfaction. They are affiliated with the Centra Health hospital system, which is where my grandmother (and several other members of my family, for that matter) receives care on a regular basis. I trust them as a company and would have been happy to place my family member at their Summit facility had it been a shorter drive from my home.

I visited the Summit nursing home on multiple occasions. The staff at the Summit was friendly however the nursing home needs more activities for the patients. The Summit only had bingo on Saturdays and lunch at meals every day and occasionally groups would visit and sing for the patients and the nursing home. The facility separated the patients in therapy apart from those who lived there as permanent residents on two separate floors and has an elevator which is helpful for patients in wheel chairs. I think it would be more beneficial to have one complete floor with different sections for the patients in order to encourage more interaction between all the patients at the nursing home.
