Customer Reviews

Has A Great Nature Preserve

After touring this community we were really leaning towards this one but then my mom had a stroke and that changed things a little. This community is much larger than others we had looked at and I felt that it might be too much for her to get used to. It has a great nature preserve which I loved but I didn't think that mom would get the same appreciation that I did out of it. The staff was extremely friendly and nice and the community was very well cared for and very clean.

Nasty facility

I really wouldn't recommend anyone to bring their loved one to Summerfield it is a very [Removed] place to live they have numerous of roaches kitchen is very [Removed] memory care units very nasty the staff there a rude miss treat family members even caught one [Removed] a family member so I took mom out they don't communicate well

A tour for care for dad

We toured this community for the care that is needed. We did not like that they have a board walk for the residents. The being did not seem to appear to be safe for the residents. We did like the staff and the community seems on the clean. The community also had activities that are offered. We would suggest that families tour this community. If the board walk is repaired it would be a nice place for the residents to enjoy.

Loved it and within our price. Residents looked happy. Space nice lots of sunny sitting areas. Room didn't have a view was only downside.

I think it's great.

I think it's great. The cleanliness is super great, and the attitude of the staff is wonderful. It really is a great place in my opinion.

After visiting a number of facilities, we selected Summerfield with our parents concurrence. Their accommodating room sizes, facility appearance and cleanliness, food quality, and affordability were among the best that we had seen.

Wasn't Very Impressed

I wasn't very impressed with my tour of this community. The community looked a bit wore down. I would say it needs some up dating. The appearance wasn't very appealing to us. It looked like a place to you would when you were close to the end of your life. Just wasn't the community for my parent and their needs.

Needs Improvement!!

My love one has not been receiving the one on one care i was hoping for her to receive. There has been some lack of communication from the staff towards the family. We had to hire an additional caregiver to help my love one out in the community. She has to stay on top of the staff and the housekeeping, so that they maintain everything in place. The staff wasn't putting an effort to help my loved one interact with activities. I am disappointed in the community at the moment i hope for some improvement.

Above the rest!

The community was very nice and clean. The staff are very nice and pleasant. My mom stayed here for respite care and they took good care of her. They offer medical transportation twice a week. Summerfield Retirement is a beautiful community!

"I Never Want To Go To One Of 'Those' Places" - Mom

My mother did NOT want to go to assisted living but after one visit to Summerfield she asked us, "When is the moving truck coming?" We were delighted to find a place where she immediately felt like she belonged, which was due to the friendliness of the staff.

Although she has only been there about two weeks she has no complaints and seems to enjoy having her own space where she can be alone or step out of her door any time of the day to join others her own age in a variety of activities. Mom seems grateful to not have to worry about the daily chores of keeping up with a large house. (Though I don't expect her to ever admit that!)

My husband and I have dropped in many times unannounced and have been pleasantly surprised in most cases. Our only concern is that the caregivers seem not as attentive when the head nurse is off duty. We arrived one time and found that she had not gotten her meds long after they were due. However, when the nurse is on duty things seem to run a bit better.

Overall we are very pleased and hope that Summerfield will continue to meet our high expectations for helping my mother enjoy life.

Understaffed and undertrained

Our experience with Summerfield Retirement hasn't been a good one. My loved one is in their memory care wing, and from what I have seen they are just not staffed appropriately to properly handle the needs of memory care residents. The facility just seems understaffed in general, and the people they do have seem young and under-trained, as well as being somewhat rude at times. The response times for care issues are slow, and I've also had problems getting reponses to maintenance issues and with their laundry service. They are apparently looking for more staff members, but at the time of this review what they have is not adequate.

Visited 7/21/15 and met with Deena. Very thorough meeting and tour. Pretty nice, clean, older facility. They don't take Medicaid patients.

Very nice place

Things have gone very well at Summerfield Retirement so far. The staff is friendly and professional, and they've been very accommodating throughout the whole process of helping my Mom settle in. The facility itself is nice looking, and always spotless! I think they do a great job here, overall.

Nice place and services sporadic(but they are fixing it)

Food is great. Place is clean. Only issue is one wing has aids on the weekend that are not responsive and doing their job. New management knows this and does seem to be making the right changes to fix it. I would recommend them. Both my parents are they and I feel good about that.

positive first impressions

I toured this facility and spoke at length with staff, and looked at other assisted living communities, before deciding to place my mother here. She hasn't moved in yet so I can't really rate things like care and activities, but my experience with Summerfield so far has been very positive. The facility is clean and attractive and seems well-run, the people I have talked to have been friendly and competent, and my questions have been answered promptly.

Visited here - Mom really l...

Visited here - Mom really liked it. Loved the garden walkway and the open atmosphere. Liked the location. Still little big for their tastes.

I feel like they get it!

Having come from a business environment where the competition is always nipping at your heals and chasing your clients, I whole-heartedly understand that balancing costs with profits and service is necessary for any business' survival today. And I know that, although I'd love for my mother to have "personal, 24 hr attention"; in today's world that is not possible unless $$ is of no concern...but it is (generally for most of us). My point being that a 1 to 1 client to caregiver ratio is financially impossible without big buck prices.

Having said that I must say that the folks at Summerfield have never, ever, ever made me feel like $$ was the object of their existence. I am so grateful for the staff's positive outlook and generally optimistic attitude when it comes to dealing with elder care. I know that it cannot be easy to deal with the aging on a daily basis.

They have my enduring respect, sincere gratitude and unquestionable support! Thank you Summerfield.

Didn't Work Out

She is not there anymore. We left her there two weeks and she was miserable. It wasn't the right place. She was always alone in her room and we could tell it wasn't working out; the personal attention wasn't there. We have since hired a live-in care giver for her at home, and that is working out much better.

Overall, Very Happy

Very happy with them. We have had a little problems with the care. They are very nice but they are not always available. My mom did her own laundry because she didn't think that they were coming, and it would help if she was reminded of the schedule.

Summerfield Rating

First impression it looks like a real nice place, well maintained and clean. Patient seems very satisfied with his surroundings. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Great Community

They have a lot of activities for the residents to keep busy if they choose to participate. The community is very very pretty. It is the best community in the area and it was the most economical. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I am very pleased with Summerfield.
