Experience that keeps getting better
Summit Adult Day Services, in operation since 1977, is the first of its kind in the Akron area. For nearly 40 years, our program continues to evolve, grow and change to best meet the needs of older adults. We are a free-standing facility, not attached or affiliated with a nursing home. Our purpose is to help keep older adults independent, social, and in their homes.
Custom Care Groups that meet individual needs
We know that each individual situation can be dramatically different from that of other participants. That’s why, Summit Adult Day Services offers four custom care groups designed to improve independence and socialization through activities that strengthen physical and mental functioning. Our groups accommodate all levels of function from alert and highly functional participants to those in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
Caring, Compassionate Staff that knows each participant
The staff at Summit Adult Day Services is committed to providing the highest level of care for your loved one, while treating everyone with dignity and respect. With a 1-6 staff to participant ratio, the caregivers are able to know your loved one personally and provide the assistance he or she may need. An on-site Licensed Social Worker maintains an on-going team approach to communicate with nurses, activity staff and caregivers.
There’s something for everyone at Summit Adult Day Services. Our Director of Nursing and Activities Director keep a full schedule of alternatives for our participants. We’re confident you’ll enjoy your daily visits, while receiving the appropriate level of nursing services if needed.
