Our Perspective

How we see Evanston Summit

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.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Gratitude for Evanston Summit

    My family and I would like to express our deepest gratitude for the staff at Evanston Summit. Our Mother has been a resident at ES for nearly 4 years, and during that time we have had only great things to say!  We have loved the spaciousness of her one bedroom suite with the great view of the courtyard and fountain, and the dining experience has been wonderful.  We have enjoyed being able to go for dinner with Mom in the dining room, and she has enjoyed the activities in the building, all of which are well planned and always well organized. The staff have been outstanding – everyone (housekeeping, front end, Administration) has always made our Mom felt so cherished and has been very welcoming to us as a family.  Throughout the Covid pandemic, we have been remarkably impressed with the communications to the residents and the families, and we have been amazed at the way that the staff has been able to keep the residents safe and healthy.  Even as our Mother declined and waited to be moved to supportive living, we saw the staff being even more kind and more exceptional in their treatment of her, and they created strategies to help keep her safe and happy as she waited. We absolutely feel that Evanston Summit was the best decision we have made as a family and have absolutely no reservations about recommending ES. It is a fantastic place to live and flourish, and offers families such peace of mind to know that their loved one is in a beautiful building equipped with modern amenities, where they can enjoy their retirement years with great food and great people!

  • Evanston Summit delivers the best value with a five star touch.

    Dear Carrie,

    On behalf of my entire family we would like to extend a huge thank you to you and the most amazing staff that you have assembled at Evanston Summit. We were continually impressed and blown away by the facility, staff and residents.

    Evanston Summit is clean, modern and comfortable.  The apartments are spacious and yet cozy.  The entire complex is kept extremely clean.  The housekeeping staff were always helpful and friendly.  We were so touched to hear Rose would not only clean my mom’s apartment,  but also helped her with her lunches.  Any of our handyman needs were handled efficiently and with ease by Barry.

    Meals At Evanston are hearty and varied.  Amanda was so accommodating and thoughtful. She ensured my mom enjoyed her daily meals.  My mom felt very special when Amanda found out her favorite treat and popped a few in her walker after her first meal so she could enjoy some in her room.

    You, the office staff and the concierge were always the best to deal with.  Efficient, communicative and prompt with any issues we needed help with.  From accounting issues to any day to day needs and guidance.  We were always met with friendly hellos and waves by all staff we encountered.

    The residents are a happy friendly group of people who were most welcoming to my mom.

    Evanston Summit delivered the best value with a five star touch.

    Thank you so much.

    - A current resident's son and family

  • Feeling Blessed

    Words alone are not enough to express the gratitude we feel towards the management & staff of Covenant Living. Your concern & devotion to us is the best of the best and we are blessed to be in your care. God bless you all.  – Emilian & Jeannette, Evanston Summit Residents

  • Resident Expresses Gratitude
