Summerset’s Assisted Living Program
Assisted Living at Its Most Caring
Summerset is founded on the principle of providing the type of care that residents expect to find within the warmth of a family-like setting. Because we feel that Summerset is truly a “home away from home,” we call our special brand of care, “Family Style Care.” It is a place where residents, guests, and staff are respected and their dignity honored.
Assisted Living is a service provided within a residential “home-like setting” that allows residents to experience an uplifting lifestyle while obtaining assistance with various activities during their normal daily routines. Our caring staff and state-of-the-art facilities are why Summerset ranks among the top senior living communities in Georgia.
Each staff member works together to make every day at Summerset safe, healthy, happy, and filled with meaningful experiences. Our dedicated employees are the reason we truly believe Summerset provides the best assisted living Atlanta has to offer.
Assisted Living Care
At Summerset Assisted Living, we understand the difficulty in making the decision to leave your home for new surroundings—that’s why we focus so much of our attention on making your assisted living community as personalized as possible. Because everyone experiences different levels of care needs throughout their retirement, Summerset is proud to offer two different levels of care in our Assisted Living program: Helping Hands and Tender Loving Care.
Each level of care offered by our various assisted living programs at Summerset meets or exceeds the basic comforts of living stipulated by the Department of Human Resources Personal Care Division. Exceeding requirements is natural for Summerset because one of our missions is to help our residents feel as comfortable as possible while they enjoy the amenities of this warm community.
Whichever level of care you or your loved one requires, Summerset makes the transition to assisted living or nursing home care an easy one with our family style care that emphasizes autonomy, privacy, dignity, and safety. Our goal is to support our residents in their individual lifestyles while providing a community and taking care of things like weekly housekeeping, meal preparation for three meals per day as well as snacks, and transportation.
Which Level of Care is Right for You or Your Loved One?
Our levels of assisted living care are determined by you or your loved one’s needs in relation to Activities of Daily Living (ADL). ADLs are daily tasks like dressing, grooming, bathing, taking medicine, and getting around—as we age, some of these tasks can become more difficult to perform. That’s where the qualified and compassionate care of our team comes in to help. Our Helping Hands assisted living program is perfect for those needing little to no assistance with ADL, whereas our Tender Loving Care program is great for those needing a little extra help.
The Summerset Helping Hands Program is an assisted living service for residents who have minimal need of assistance and require support for two or fewer activities of daily living. This program is perfect for residents who still enjoy a great deal of independence but need just a little assistance on those things that become more difficult as time goes on, like remembering to take medications on time and getting dressed in the morning. We want to help residents be as self-sufficient as possible while assuring that they get the assistance they need when they need it.
Tender Loving Care
For those senior citizens for whom the activities of daily living have become too stressful or overwhelming, the Summerset Tender Loving Care Program is an assisted living service designed to accommodate residents who need a bit more assistance, requiring three to four activities of daily living. Studies have shown that there is a hierarchy to the ADLs with early-loss function generally being hygiene and late-loss function being eating. Our dedicated staff is on hand to compassionately assist residents with whatever ADL needs they may have. There is also a licensed nurse on-duty 24/7 for any emergencies that may come up.
What Makes Summerset’s Assisted Living Unique?
A Residents-First Community
Each resident suite includes a private and “user-friendly” bath, closet, and a kitchenette featuring a microwave oven, sink, refrigerator and storage cabinets. Fantastic views of our beautifully landscaped courtyard with walkways, benches, birdhouses, a fountain and a goldfish pond can be enjoyed from several suites and common areas.
State of the Art Suites
Every assisted living suite in our Atlanta community is equipped with a state-of-the-art Emergency Alert Call and Voice-To-Voice Communication System. Our beautifully appointed dining room overlooks the courtyard and is the center of attention when residents gather for their meals, which are provided three times a day. These amenities are why Summerset is ranked among Atlanta’s top senior living communities.
Family and Activity Spaces
The varied family and activity spaces are strategically located, noticeably roomy and very well appointed. Residents will absolutely enjoy the Clubroom, Sunroom, Library, Chapel, and Wellness Center. This atmosphere has set the scene for Summerset’s Wellness and Activities Programs.
