There’s nothing quite like that friendly, small-town feeling that Summer Village communities provide. Nestled in quiet neighborhoods with pleasant surroundings, every Summer Village property offers a comfortable, laid-back lifestyle full of enriching programs, outings and opportunities.We will make it easy for Residents to fully engage in the lifestyle available at Summer Village, while at the same time encouraging them to stay connected to their larger network of friends, family and community organizations. All of these relationships play an important part in the overall health and vibrancy of a Summer Village community. Our philosophy is to incorporate not only Residents’ individual interests, but also opportunities that allow them to make meaningful contributions to each other, the community and surrounding neighborhood on a regular basis. Our partnerships with area hospitals, therapy companies and other senior-focused organizations all contribute to the health and well-being of our Residents, Families and Associates.
Living options at Summer Village
Our community is designed to accommodate and support the needs of a wide range of seniors. We see this as a definite strength because it means that once you become a Resident of Summer Village, you can remain one even if your care needs change. That’s comforting.

Dining in style with us, or cooking in your fully equipped kitchen
Knowing that assistance is available when you need it

Our Memory Care Mission
Our focus is to help Residents embrace the beautiful moments of life, even in dementia, and provide peace of mind for our Residents’ Families. We strive to cultivate a supportive environment with innovative enrichment programming that supports Residents with Memory Care needs. Our philosophy of “knowing our Residents” fully supports engagement with them, thereby preserving their dignity and encouraging stimulation and active participation in daily life. We partner with our Families to keep the connection strong between the loved ones they knew and those who are in our Memory Care program today.
Here, there’s something to look forward to every day
One of the biggest fears you and your Family might have about senior living is that it will be, well, boring. Let us assure you, life at Summer Village is anything but boring. In fact, you should prepare yourself for a stimulating social calendar, delicious full-service dining and an inspirational health and wellness program.
Dining at Summer Village
Sharing a meal is one of the most fundamental human activities. We give Residents at Summer Village the opportunity to come together for tasty and healthy fare that’s prepared by our talented team each and every day. Our varied menus are something we’re proud of, and we even encourage our Residents to share their own recipes with our staff to expand our offerings and make our home truly yours. Dining here is something our Residents look forward to. But don’t take our word for it. Try it yourself.
We know that providing a beautiful and cozy environment lifts the moods of Summer Village Residents a lot. As we mentioned before, Summer Village is home for our Residents. So we pay attention to the details, like accommodating Residents’ personalization of private living space and providing a friendship lounge with a fireplace for gatherings. We also strive to maintain attractive landscaping with woodland and lake areas, and keep our dining room and common spaces comfortable for all residents.
Staying Active at Summer Village
Our Discover Your Spark program promotes active and engaged living. We encourage you to look at our current schedule of events to get an idea of all the ways our Residents have to fill their days. Beyond the schedule, our Associates take it upon themselves to look for opportunities to make every day a surprise and delight for Residents and their families – because little moments of joy mean a lot. In addition, Summer Village features many amenities for everyday use, like exercise facilities, a library, an arts-and-crafts studio and rooms for club activities and socializing, discounts at a local fitness club and pool, and scheduled transportation for shopping and local events.
Because of our relationships with our communities, our leadership team is able to make quick and sound decisions that positively impact the lives of our Residents, Families and Associates. We pride ourselves in getting to know our Residents and Associates at a deeper level, not just by the apartment they live in or the job they hold. We take interest in their lives and always work toward fostering that personal connection.
