Future Tenants Reserving Spaces at The Summit in Whitefield
More Than Half of Summit by Morrison’s Independent and Assisted Living Units Have Been Reserved
More than half of the available independent and assisted living units at Summit by Morrison, a first-ofits-kind senior living community in Whitefield, N.H., have been reserved by future residents. The independent and assisted living apartments are in the community’s main campus building, Summit House, which also features apartments for those who may need memory support. The independent living cottages are just a short walk across the campus from Summit House. The senior living community expects to welcome residents in late spring.
“Excitement continues to grow as we put the final touches on the community,” said Chad Dingman, Chief Executive Officer of Summit by Morrison and The Morrison Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Care. “The strong response we’ve seen from prospective residents – and the many who have already reserved apartments or cottages – reinforces the need for senior living communities such as Summit by Morrison in northern New Hampshire.”
Summit by Morrison offers independent living apartments in one- and two-bedroom and bathroom configurations and two-bedroom independent living cottages; these units all feature full kitchens, large closets and washer/ dryer units. For assisted living, each studio apartment is equipped with a private bathroom and kitchenette to help residents feel right at home. And for those who may need memory support, private rooms feature natural lighting, a private bathroom and a layout that promotes independence.
“We can see the enthusiasm from prospective residents on each tour,” said Shannon Lynch, Director of Resident Services at Summit by Morrison. “Residents are choosing to join the Summit by Morrison community for different reasons, but they all appreciate our attention to details that will make sure everyone feels welcome, comfortable and engaged with others in the community.”
Those who have reserved a residence and will be among the first to live at Summit by Morrison hail from around the Granite State.
“We chose Summit by Morrison for many reasons,” said Jessica Bunker of Franconia, N.H. Bunker’s mother will move into an assisted living apartment when the community welcomes its first residents. “Finding a senior living community in the area, where my mom has lived for more than 40 years, was important to me. Because she’s staying close to home, she’ll be able to spend time with friends and family, continue to see her doctors and frequent her favorite restaurants, without the worry of maintaining her house. We also appreciate Summit by Morrison’s layout and design; it feels welcoming, fostering a feeling of community and helping its residents live a full and active life.”
