Premier Alzheimer’s Care and Dementia Care at Summit Hills
Summit Hills offers an innovative, eclectic and person-centered approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our memory care program includes a variety of daily exercises to stimulate the mind and body, a brightly lit environment to ease maneuverability and reduce stress, and a vibrant social and wellness calendar to keep members engaged in their care. Safety is our community’s number one priority, which is why our memory care facilities are kept secure to protect members with symptoms of wandering.
One of the most valuable aspects of our memory care program is the relationship that residents develop with their caregivers. At our luxury memory care community, residents benefit from individualized care plans provided by a staff who are specially trained and certified in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our caregivers do everything from assisting members in daily needs such as dressing and bathing to engaging them in mental stimulation activities geared toward slowing the progression of the disease. Depending on the stage of dementia they are at, memory care residents can have a variety of dietary needs. Our program includes an on-site dietician who works with each member to come up with a dining plan that’s right for them. This may include traditional, family-style dining for those with fewer dietary needs or a pureed food option for those with more trouble eating. For seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia, being supported by a team that truly understands their needs and knows how to provide the best care can be a life-changing experience.
We understand how difficult it can be having a friend or family member with Alzheimer’s or dementia. At Summit Hills, we exist to serve our members, and you can rest assured that your loved one is in good hands at our community.
Memory Care at Summit Hills is designed to serve our members, helping them to enjoy their friends and family and live in happiness and dignity as they age.
At Summit Hills, memory care residents enjoy access to our award-winning wellness program. When they join our community, each member meets with the wellness director to develop a personalized wellness plan for their stay with us. One of our most popular wellness classes is WAVES, a 2010 “Best of the Best” award winner by the Assisted Living Federation of America. WAVES is a therapeutic program that harnesses the power of low-impact aerobic exercise in a warm, salt water pool. It has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, improve appetite and promote healthy sleeping patterns. Memory care residents also have access to our robust calendar of social programming, which gives them the opportunity to socialize with one another and engage in activities they enjoy.

Memory Care Pricing
No hidden fees; No surprise charges.
Summit Hills is dedicated to making senior care as straightforward and stress-free as possible for members and their family. That’s why we offer hassle-free pricing where what you see is what you pay. Other communities surprise their members with unexpected amenities or levels of care charges, which makes it hard to budget properly and creates unneeded stress.

This means that you will pay one rate for all your care while in the memory care program.
Living With Alzheimer’s and Dementia
A Blog Series
Understanding that your loved one may have a form of dementia can be a difficult and trying time. While there is no single test that can diagnose a person, it’s vital to identify and become aware of the symptoms attributed to dementia. There are various cases of dementia and on average, Alzheimer’s accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases, while Vascular dementia (which occurs after a stroke) is the second most common form.
