The Summit

The Summit offers beautiful, newly renovated apartments for people ages 62 and older. The studio and one-bedroom apartments offer floor-to-ceiling windows with various comfortable lay-outs. Centrally located in the Denver-Metro area, our community is situated one mile from the heart of Lakewood’s Belmar shopping and arts district. The Summit is located in a residential neighborhood conveniently located near parks and open spaces. The community sits on nearly four acres of beautifully landscaped grounds that include a dog park, picnic areas, and covered patios. 

Once inside, you will find a home that fits your ideal lifestyle. The community offers a wide program of lifestyle options including housekeeping and laundry services, wellness programs, art classes, educational classes, technological support, spiritual support, and more. Whether you are looking to downsize for a peaceful retirement or looking to be engaged within the community, The Summit is a place where you can live with purpose.

Is independent living right for me or my loved one?

Independent living is a great way to trade in chores and stress for a more relaxed and vibrant lifestyle. Everyone’s reasons for choosing to join our community are different but here are some of the most common:

    1. You want a built-in support network with access to resources.
      Whether you are moving to be closer to family or downsizing in retirement, independent living offers a built-in support network of friendly and knowledgeable staff who can connect you to resources to help you live your best life. 
    2. You want to participate in activities, without driving miles to do so.
      Living at Eaton gives you access to so many programs and activities.  From educational classes to fun happy hours to wellness providers, we bring it on-site to you. You will no longer have to hop in the car to participate in all these activities. 
    3. You want to say goodbye to yard work, home maintenance, and shoveling snow! Eaton has a phenomenal maintenance crew that ensures the building and grounds are clean, well-kept, and beautiful. 
    4. You may want to “take a load off” by getting help with cooking and cleaning. When you move to independent living, you can choose to do the things that matter to you.

Eaton Senior Communities provides independent living, also known as senior apartments, with on-site services.  Independent living communities do not directly provide assistance with activities of daily living. Rent goes toward housing, utilities, and maintenance. Residents who need extra help with daily tasks can use privately-hired home health aides. These are outside providers that assist with bathing, dressing, managing medication, and other daily tasks. Residents who require increased monitoring can use privately-hired medical alert systems, such as fall detection pendants. Eaton does not provide any direct care, 24/7 monitoring, wellness checks, or medical emergency response.
