From day one, wellness has been an important part of life at The Summit at First Hill.

Continuing in that tradition, we have broadened the breadth and depth of these services, in addition to having professionals on-staff in a variety of disciplines.

Wellness Staff:

  • Registered Nurse – She is the first point of contact for our Independent residents, providing basic medical care and assessment without the need to leave the building. She offers blood pressure and weight monitoring clinics twice weekly at no charge. Other services available include medication management, wound care, injections, consultation with physicians and specialists, etc. on a fee-for-service basis.
  • Social Worker – We know that many seniors need some support as they transition from their long-term homes to a senior living residence. Many experience loss in terms of perceived independence, from downsizing, the passing of a spouse, separation from family and friends and so much more. The Summit’s social worker is available to all residents and families, including helping them with the transitions and vagaries of life. She is available to meet one-to-one, in groups and/ or with family members.
  • Registered Dietician – The most recent addition to the team is a nutritional counselor/dietician who meets with residents to help them adjust meal planning in accordance with their nutritional goals or a doctor’s recommendation. Nutritional information on menus, educational sessions and one-to-one counseling are available to all residents of The Summit at no additional cost.
  • Two Fitness Coordinators – Not only are there group classes like yoga and Zumba, but one-to-one personal training is available to all residents at no additional charge five days a week. Coordinators also provide equipment coaching in our Fitness Center.
