Honoring the people you love.
Serving each individual’s unique needs.
We work with residents and their families to get to know each person who lives at Summer House. With this understanding, we can better support each individual—in mind and body. It’s these person-to-person connections that foster a deep sense of community, and make all the difference.
It starts with compassion. At Summer House, we create opportunities for meaningful interactions and purposeful engagement. Through personalized care, based on dignity and respect, we build familiarity and nurture close bonds between our staff and residents. It all works together to help decrease agitation, pain, and behavioral challenges. And we offer peace of mind for families whose loved ones are living with memory loss.
