Alice Berry, community outreach director for Quail Summit, recently spoke to Victor-Farmington Rotary Club about the facility located on Parrish Street Extension in Canandaigua.
Quail Summit offers various living accommodations, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. Berry said staff at Quail Summit take pride in their commitment of service to their residents, particularly those who cannot live alone without assistance.
The mission statement of Quail Summit sets forth its goal — “By providing services to our seniors in accordance with the highest standards of professional practice, the mission of Quail Summit is to promote the functional independence of its residents in a socially dynamic environment that fosters quality of life.”
Berry outlined the types of services provided for each of the three living options available to prospective residents. She said the philosophy of Quail Summit embraces the idea that prospective residents should be provided an explanation of what services are available for each of the levels of accommodation. The prospective resident can then make an informed decision as to what level best fits their individual needs.
The dining options at Quail Summit include a complete meal service that can accommodate variations in dietary requirements. Staff will prepare box lunches for those who have activities that take them away from the facility. Baked goods are prepared on the premises. Weekly themed buffet nights are a popular attraction. Guests are always welcome.
Short-term accommodations are available for those recovering from a hospital stay or who just want to get away for a short period of time. The facility offers transportation for those with medical appointments.
Berry said the location of Quail Summit in Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes region attracts residents to the facility. The management and staff of Quail Summit have follow an operational code they refer to as ARK — appreciation, respect and kindness.
