What Makes Summit View Unique?

Summit View

A Higher Vision for What Senior Living Can Be

Summit View Senior Community is part of Senior Housing Alternatives, Inc., a 501 C3, not-for-profit organization, which offers better alternatives for senior living.
"Treating others as we would want to be treated" is not just our Mission Statement — It is our way of life in everything we do.

  • Our Independent Living is much more than just an apartment with amenities. For example, we provide three meals a day and opportunities for you to stay active and serving in the Summit View Community.
  • Our Assisted Living doesn't just help with daily living activities, but offers assistence in a way that helps protect and improve the ability to stay healthy and be a independent as possible. Assisted Living that simply "does for" a person hastens deterioration. Assisted Living that helps you "do for yourself" increases longevity and independence.
  • Our Memory Care is NOT a unit where people are locked up and often sedated down, sacrificing their humanity. Instead , our Memory Care effort takes place with support and programming that occurs both in Independent Living and Assisted Living. This maximizes the potential for a normal life for people with some cognitive difficulty at a much lower cost for care than traditional Memory Care. In working with UTC professors and our own skilled staff, we have established the ALEERT Centers (Alternative Living for Elders to Empower Resilient Thinking) in our building to help prevent and overcome cognitive decline and other difficulties. This inclusive model is the new direction in Memory Care and we are proud to be a leader in this approach in Chattanooga.

What Others are Saying

Summit View Senior Community has truly been a blessing to our family. Kendra Coulter and her caring staff helped us transition our parents into an independent living apartment that was just perfect for meeting our family members' needs. The staff's compassion and love for the residents is evident in all the day to day operations.

While the pandemic has brought tremendous challenges to healthcare facilities, the leadership at Summit View has worked tirelessly on behalf of residents to keep the facility virus-free. The delicate balance of keeping residents socially distant and yet continuing the programming specifically designed to stimulate social interaction among residents has been a challenge, but the staff is committed to their residents' physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well being while keeping safety as the top priority.

We are so thankful to have found Summit View and we are confident that they will continue to assist us in meeting the needs of our loved ones with continued excellence in the future.

Summit View is exactly the care facility we needed for our friend when he was unable to care entirely for himself. The staff; from management to nurses, to administrative, to the cafe personnel, security and all of the individuals who fill in the needs of our friend we say THANK YOU! What we love about Summit View is their beautiful quiet location, the inviting lobby and decor, the bird feeders everywhere and an entire daily activity calendar for their guests. They even have a library and a beauty shop!

Our friend lost a leg and was in very poor condition but when he began his rehab at SV it made him stronger in so many ways. They focus on the individual needs of their guest. Not only has he become more mobile but his entire outlook on his life and future has changed. He’s happy, content and improving everyday. We owe a deep gratitude to SV and it’s staff. Their day in day out care during this Covid pandemic has been nothing short of incredible. Daily meals delivered, medications delivered, assistance with laundry and so much more. We can’t thank them enough.

We could go on and on in giving our praises but perhaps the highest praise is to say that we made a perfect choice in a difficult time and it’s because of the facility, staff and their genuine care that set Summit View apart.

Again, to all the staff at SV, on behalf of my wife and I, and most importantly Wayne, we say THANK YOU!!!
