About Our Community
We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do.
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Summer Wind — and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities — has shared since 1993, when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful — a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Set on two acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at Summer Wind is considered to be one of the premier senior living communities in the Greater Boise area. Located close to I-84, our community offers 58 apartments on one floor for easy access. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Yet should you need a helping hand, we also offer complete tailor-made assisted living services provided by our cheerful, 24-hour staff and our on-site nurse, who is here every day from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. We’ve designed our services to focus on wellness, helping you maintain or improve your health, and our staff offers the assistance you need while respecting your independence.
A Wonderful Selection
Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, Library and TV room — give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, including trips to various museums, the World Center for Birds of Prey, Art in the Park and the Christmas Lights Tour during the Holidays. Summer Wind is conveniently located in a residential area close to several shopping centers, banks, Veterans Park and the Boise River. Located near the downtown area, Summer Wind provides easy freeway access to St. Luke’s and St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and is close to a nursing home rehabilitation facility if ever needed.
We are well-known for hiring some of the most compassionate, dedicated individuals in the senior living industry. Our community has individuals who go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of our residents. Every day – in big ways and small – our staff lives the Brookdale Family Values. We are grateful for their service and teamwork, for their integrity and responsiveness and most importantly, for honoring the dignity of our residents and always striving to exceed their expectations.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
A wonderful and active lifestyle, at our Boise, Idaho community, is about social engagement, brain health and a well planned life enrichment program for our residents. We have a resident customized life enrichment program at our community. We regularly plan social events, local excursions, games, clubs and much more. We want you to enjoy life at our community. We will plan activities with you in mind.
The Life Enrichment Program at our community was designed to add joy, purpose and meaning to the lives of our residents. Our approach to life enrichment means offering retirement activities and programs that reflect the talents, interests and personalities of the residents in each of our senior living communities, while also offering new experiences that will challenge them and keep them mentally healthy.
Pet Friendly Living
We understand all the benefits that pets can offer. We also know that many of our residents can’t imagine life without their furry, four-legged companions. So when we say, “Our family is committed to yours,” that includes this important member of your family. When you make a move to Emeritus at Summer Wind, you shouldn’t have to give up your pet. That is why Brookdale Senior Living has Pet-Friendly apartments available at many of our communities nationwide for pets under 20 pounds.
Our skilled and knowledgeable Emeritus at Summer Wind Chefs prepare three healthy, flavorful meals and three snacks a day.They also work closely with our registered dieticians to accommodate residents with a variety of dietary modifications, from low sugar to no salt-added diets. All meals are served in our lovely dining rooms, restaurant-style by our gracious wait-staff.
