The rewarding lifestyle.

Once you leave the hassles of homeownership behind, life expands. Suddenly, there’s more free time to do exactly what you want. We put a lot of rewarding programs and activities in place. Residents choose to participate in as much — or as little — as they like.

Of course, resident programs aren’t limited to our campus. People here are active and involved, both at our community and in the surrounding area.

Social responsibility, civic contributions and volunteerism are common — and fulfilling — endeavors. It’s not unusual to find Edgewood Summit residents participating in Habitat for Humanity, Union Mission and Veterans Affairs, just to name a few. Annual service projects include Read Aloud programs with Kanawha County schools, food and clothing drives, and stuffing Easter eggs for children.

Frequently asked questions.

Many older adults choose an independent community simply to eliminate the burdens of owning a house — higher insurance, property taxes, repairs, yardwork, shoveling snow and regular maintenance. Often the decision to make a move is driven by the desire to be in a social and active environment. It also provides levels of safety and security. Unlike living alone, at a community there’s always someone close by if an emergency arises.

Edgewood Summit recognizes that choosing a new home is a personal decision and making a lifestyle change can be difficult. Finding the right community for you that balances independent living with senior care and services when needed requires some research. We invite you to attend regularly scheduled informational sessions on a variety of topics to help you make an educated decision about your future. We’re available to answer your questions at any time, and welcome your inquiries. We offer an open invitation to visit and take a personal tour.

There are several benefits. The investment you make into Edgewood Summit is reinvested in the community to pay for capital improvements, fund reserves, retire debt, and generate interest earnings to help with operational expenses. Also keep in mind that the entrance fee at Edgewood Summit is up to 90% refundable. Also included in the contract is a Health Care Benefit, offering a substantial discount on higher levels of living at Edgewood Summit, should you ever need them.

Living at Edgewood Summit is surprisingly reasonable. Cost depends on several factors. Comparing the actual costs of your current living arrangement and the comprehensively inclusive monthly service fee should be reviewed in detail with our marketing team. We would love to sit down with you and go through the financial advantages of residing in an independent senior living community.
