Our Philosophy

We believe that:

As people age, they acquire wisdom, skills, and experiences that they can use to contribute to making the world a better place.

There is a purpose for each person's life as long as they are on earth.

At Summit View we honor each resident's knowledge and experience, finding meaningful ways to use those life skills to improve the lives of others and the community as a whole.

Although at times older people may need some help, they can continue to be involved in living life fully.


With the right prevention strategies, older adults can avoid many of the problems that can result in loss of independence.

At Summit View, each new resident has an opportunity to identify those areas where they might be at risk of losing their independence, and then work with staff to develop a plan for using the Community's activities to help prevent future problems.

With the right resources and support, most older adults can bounce back from infirmities.

Summit View's "Bounce Back Program uses the resources of a Personal Coach assisted by Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing, and Psychology to help residents "bounce back" from illnesses, injury or debilitation."

One's life and long-term well-being are shaped by a combination of physical, psychological, and spiritual factors.

The factors that foster well-being include: thankfulness, hope, a positive outlook, loving others, practicing forgiveness, being of service, and seeing a special purpose for your life.

Summit View programs, activities and staff embrace and enhance this combination of principles, helping them come alive in the Community.

Growing old is not a medical problem, therefore the emphasis should be on living life rather than treating disease

In many facilities, the day is focused around nursing care and the resident feels more like a patient, than someone living in their own home with a little bit of help. At Summit View, the focus is on living life fully. Any health care support simply occurs around the edges of living life well.

A strong community of loving, supportive friends can overcome any adversity.

When you create a community where people are committed to each other, wonderful things can occur.

Summit View is more than just a senior housing setting; it is a true Community where each resident is surrounded by a circle of friends in an atmosphere that promotes treating each other the way you would want to be treated.

Each day is a new adventure in the journey of life, enabling you to seize the moment and celebrate living.

With the love of God in your midst, nothing is impossible.

There are adventures and possibilities, dreams and goals ahead, regardless of your age. Summit View truly embodies the idea that "today is the first day of the rest of your life."
