FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

Assisted living offers seniors the help they need with the tasks of daily living, a residential community that supports and encourages their independence, and opportunities to live a full and engaging life. SummerField Suites is conveniently located just off 441 near The Villages.

Email or call Carole Goggin, Administrator, at (352) 307-0222 with your specific questions. She wants to hear from you!

What is the difference between the various types of facilities?

Assisted living is not a nursing home. The typical resident may need assistance with medications, meals, housekeeping and other activities, but is not chronically ill.

Is SummerField Suites a licensed provider of assisted living? Does that really matter?

Yes – and Yes! High quality providers of assisted living are licensed and regulated by the state. Our dual licensing ensures appropriate staffing levels, physician-certified care plans, staff training, and medication administration. Don’t assume a provider is licensed just because they call themselves “assisted living.” A quick look around the entrance will tell you if it is a licensed community or not, as the state requires licenses to be displayed prominently at the entrance.

Is there a nurse on duty?

Our staff includes a nurse around the clock, and there is a physician available on call.

Do you have a house physician?

Yes. Our residents have a choice of retaining a physician on the outside or utilizing the physician that comes to the facility. That physician is a licensed gerontologist with attending privileges at the local hospital.

What accommodations are available?

We offer residents a choice of either 1-bedroom or studio apartments with recently renovated baths and kitchenettes.

What services and amenities are included in the monthly rate?

  • 24 hour Staffing
  • All utilities, except cable TV and telephone service
  • Three delicious, nutritious meals in the community dining room with snacks and beverages available 24/7
  • Regular wellness activities, social events and devotional services
  • Shopping and leisure excursions in the community
  • Coordination with a resident’s personal physician
  • Housekeeping and personal laundry services

If my health needs change while living at SummerField Suites, will I automatically have to move into a skilled nursing facility?

Some residents receive physical therapy, home health and hospice in their home here. Others may leave for post-surgical rehabilitation and look forward to coming back home as quickly as possible.

Can I live in assisted living if I need a wheelchair or walker to get around?

Yes. In fact, we encourage seniors who need assistance with ambulation to live with us. Our wide hallways accommodate all such assisted devices.

May I bring my own furnishings to my apartment?

Absolutely. This is your home and you should have all the comforts and furnishings to which you are accustomed. When you visit you will see how uniquely and personally each resident has decorated their apartment.
