Our perspective

This community deserves closer attention! We love the striking modern look to the exterior of the building, for immediate starters. Inside, the design is striking, featuring an atrium-style dining room that extends to the second floor. Suites are also very stylish.

Christian seniors with discriminating tastes will love the move into Evanston Summit. You’ll add spice to your life by participating in good living here. There are many things to do here, tailored to people this age, Tai Chi being one of the more popular activities. The bistro, billiards room and library all facilitate a variety of interactions.

True heart-and-soul shine through in the entire community’s avid involvement in activities, including a lively happy hour once week, full involvement in birthday and holiday celebrations, and barbecues spread throughout the summer months. Intergenerational programs inspire participation from family members and help broaden the community. There are also educational lectures and bowling. You'll find new joy in life when you settle in here.

We moved our dad to Evanston Summit a few weeks ago. The staff and residents are so great and friendly. The facility has bright open spaces and great suites. The food is very good too. Thanks, Mikee, for making this move so smooth. We are all happy we chose this place.

Larry And Anita Sartori, family member

My mom has lived here on a main floor unit for 1.5 years now and just loves it. Excellent staff, lots of activities, and nice residents. Really took a lot of the stress off of my brother and me knowing that Mom is well taken care of.

Terena Hrycenko, family member

My parents lived at Evanston Summit for three years and it was a wonderful experience for them....The staff are friendly and helpful and the residents are kind and welcoming. There is always something fun going on at Evanston summit whether it be a birthday celebration, an outing or a happy hour. The shared spaces are always clean and organized.

Jennifer Journeau, family member

My Mom has been living at Evanston Summit for a year now, and has really come to appreciate the feeling of community and caring. She enjoys the variety of activities and bus trips, and knows that when she feels like being social, she will always find someone to chat with or play cards in the common areas. She also enjoys the food, and appreciates the work of the housekeeping staff in keeping everything looking so nice, both in her own suite and the building and outdoor areas. She enjoyed getting involved with some light maintenance of the flowers during the growing season, as she had always had her own garden. I would recommend to anyone looking at options for your loved one, to check out Evanston Summit.

I moved [here] about six weeks ago and just want to express my appreciation for the kindness and helpfulness of everyone. I have been so impressed with how all of the staff and even residents who greet everyone by name and with a smile. The friendly atmosphere is contagious and [I'm grateful for the] warm welcome and the things [they] have helped me with to get settled into this new family of friends.

In mid April our mother/mother in law, Mary, lost her husband of 72 years. Since she was no longer able to live in the home they had shared for so many years our family went about the task of finding a seniors complex that would fit her needs. As a family we researched and visited a wide spectrum of the facilities with a variety of environments and programs that would meet her needs. Every person has different needs starting with the present: we were cognizant of the fact that her needs may evolve.

Evanston is an independent seniors residence. We were very impressed. We continued to research and visit a variety of facilities.We narrowed it down and then took mom to visit. In our minds, Evanston was the place we decided on. It stood out clearly as a welcoming and vibrant community. We could see that they would be very open to help mom adjust. Residents and staff went out of their way to welcome and help her...

We know that mom made the right decision to move to Evanston. We, as a family, want to thank all the staff. They [have] watched out for mom and were so willing to help her.

Terry Couch, family member

My parents lived here for a couple of years, and then my mother for 3 years after my dad passed away.
Wonderful caring staff, a clean unit that was more spacious than I would have expected, with laundry in the unit. The only reason my mom isn't still living there is because her health requires more assistance

Sheryle Lind, resident

Evanston Summit - What can I say? It's the epitome of wonderful! The staff are awesome and the suites are great with washer & dryer in each suite. We have a great chef and the food is very good. We are within walking distance of a small mall which has everything we need! I am so glad I moved here.

Dale Norlin, family member

We moved our mother in law and have nothing but excellent service from the entire staff. They have been very helpful and in so many ways and recommend them to anyone considering a move.

Jean F, resident

Let me tell you what I like about where I live. It’s a one bedroom suite with a large bathroom, shower and my own washing machine! Lots of windows and plenty of lights in the ceiling. Neighbors right next door, meals served in a large dining room. I live here like a queen and I wouldn’t be so happy anywhere else!

Delores A, resident

Evanston Summit is my home and I really like it here. The staff are wonderful and the meals are good. I am able to be independent here, that's what I've always tried to do. You will like it here.
