Environment and Accommodation Services
Each SummitCare centre is configured with single, twin and multi-bed rooms. Every centre has access to well appointed sitting and communal space where residents and relatives are welcome to set up for visiting or to hold a family gathering. Residents should feel welcome to sit and enjoy the television or participate in the scheduled activities program organised by our recreational activities staff.

Colour schemes are chosen with the needs of residents with dementia in mind. We pride ourselves on making our environments pleasant and welcoming.
