Samaritan Summit Village

The Samaritan Summit Village provides multiple levels of support for the local senior population, including an entirely new level of care for the community – assisted living. For those who need some help with activities of daily living, but do not need continuous nursing care, assisted living offers independence and added privacy.

The facility will have 120 assisted living beds and 168 nursing home beds, to create a continuum of care for our community.

The continuum of care includes:

Assisted Living Program (ALP):

This program provides nursing care, home care, personal care and meals for residents that require services above and beyond what is typically provided while living in the community. The program may be an alternative to nursing home care.

Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR):

The enhanced assisted living program offers an advanced level of care to serve people who wish to remain in their residence, adding services as they develop age related difficulties. This is commonly referred to as "Aging in Place."

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF):

A skilled nursing facility is a health care facility providing 24- hour nursing care as well as other services in a home-like environment.

Services provided at the Samaritan Summit Village include:

Personal Care
Physician Services
Therapy Services
Residential-style Dining
Flexible Dining
Activities Program
Beauty Shop
Laboratory Testing
Social Services
Pastoral Care
Gift Shop

As part of the overall design, the Samaritan Summit Village will feature a home-like environment that is flexible. This will enable residents to easily transition from assisted living to nursing home care as they require a higher level of support. Throughout the design, the emphasis is on the residents. Services will be brought to them, rather than requiring residents go to the services – a design feature that improves efficiency and will give the staff more time to devote to the residents and their needs.

Highlights of the Summit Village Design:

  • Resident centered Care which places an emphasis upon the needs, habits, goals, likes and dislikes of the resident rather than the systematization of care to achieve maximum efficiency
  • Residential-style dining rooms for small groups of people versus a larger, institutional-type cafeteria setting 
  • Use of softer materials, such as carpeting versus tiled floors; less glaring paint colors to help aging eyes see objects and surfaces better, and wood railings versus those made of hard plastic or metal
  • Flexible food service that is prepared on residents' schedules and that fits different lifestyles
  • More abundant, but smaller "common rooms" that give residents areas for various activities such as reading, computer use, or conversation as opposed to one less intimate large common area
  • Resident privacy – the resident rooms are designed to maximize privacy
