A happier life is waiting at SummitView Terrace, an Americare community. We offer assisted living services to seniors in Kansas City, MO. Our focus is on making you or your loved one feel welcomed and engaged from the moment you first walk through our doors. With friendly care partners, spacious floor plans, and a selection of amenities and events sure to keep a smile on your face, this is more than a retirement community. It’s home.
If living independently is becoming more difficult or, as a caretaker, you no longer feel scheduled at-home visits meet the needs of your loved one, it’s time to consider assisted living at SummitView Terrace in Kansas City, MO. Our community combines gracious accommodations with professionally licensed support services for a truly inclusive environment that puts people first.
When you choose to make one of our assisted living apartments your new home, you will be treated to a comfortable private or semi-private suite complete with everyday comforts including a full, private bath and air conditioning. Each of our senior apartments also features an emergency call system so you can rest easy knowing we’re here for you when you need us.
At SummitView Terrace assisted living, we offer residents of our assisted living community personal assistance 24 hours a day. Whether you need bathing and dressing assistance, help with medication management, or simply a shoulder to lean on, our caring staff is here to help with a smile. It’s time to find yourself in a happier place.
Being a full-time caregiver can be a rewarding, yet demanding and stressful proposition. If you are caring for a loved one, you need to remember to care for yourself as well. When you need a vacation, have an emergency to deal with, or simply crave a breather, respite care at SummitView Terrace can help.
Once you’re part of our respite care program, with as little as 24 hours’ notice and based on availability, we can care for your loved one for a day, 30 days, or anything in between. This option can allow for a well-deserved rest for caregivers, free from guilt and worry. A brief stay can also be the segue to making SummitView Terrace home if it proves to be a good fit for your loved one.
The care professionals at SummitView Terrace understand all too well the cycle of hospitalization, returning home, and readmittance that can happen to seniors after a health-related event. Our care professionals are here to ensure our residents avoid being readmitted to the hospital, with successful rehabilitation as our goal.
We feel that it is important to support you through this potentially daunting process and make you feel comfortable and confident with your care plan. Our experienced, encouraging therapists and state-of-the-art equipment create the best environment to complete a smooth recovery.
At SummitView Terrace, we consider it an honor to support our residents and their families during all stages of life, including the end-of-life journey. Our compassionate and well-trained team is here to assist you and your loved ones during this challenging time. We partner with the best hospice and palliative care providers in Kansas City to create a circle of support around the entire family.
We understand that this time can be emotionally taxing for everyone involved. However, it can also be a time of reflection, retelling life stories, and recalling moments of joy and laughter. We have found that creating these types of opportunities can be cathartic and healing for all: residents, loved ones, and staff.
In addition to orchestrating expert care and pain management, we offer sensitive emotional and spiritual support. Based on the resident’s wishes and capabilities, we provide social opportunities. Our team is experienced in assisting residents and loved ones through the grieving process. We can also offer referrals to grief support entities for family members.
In support of our families, we often help navigate the applicable Medicare benefits. If it is needed and desired, our staff can coordinate outside palliative and hospice services. Please do not hesitate to express your needs, and know that we are here for you.
Adult Day Club
If living at home is still the best option, you can still be a part of our community through our Adult Day Club. Enroll your loved one in our program at SummitView Terrace and enjoy the freedom and flexibility this service provides. Day Club is available in both our assisted living and memory care communities. Once you’ve gone through the initial setup, all we ask is that you give us just 24 hours notice to prepare. We welcome our Adult Day Club guests to take advantage of all the available services our full-time residents enjoy. Meals, activities, medication management, and personal care, including bathing, are all included.
Our monthly activities calendar is centered around the seven dimensions of wellness – social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, and physical. We include at least one activity for each dimension of wellness and at least two activities per week related to wellness. Past activities have included pet therapy visits, dominoes, chair exercises, Bible study, bingo, and more!
