Frequently Asked Questions

The Summit at Brighton is part of the Continuum of Care Retirement Community (CCRC), meaning you’ll have access to all levels of care within one campus. Our Life Care plans offer you peace of mind that you have planned for your future living and care needs.  Click on the video to learn why Joyce chose Life Care.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

What is Life Care and how can it help me manage the increasing costs of higher levels of care?



Life Care is a financial plan option, similar to long term care insurance, that can protect you from the rising costs of care, no matter what level of care you require. Life Care may also provide some additional tax and financial benefits for your assets. The Summit at Brighton is Rochester’s first and only Life Care community and the only independent senior living community to offer a variety of financial plans to choose from. That means you can choose a financial plan that’s right for you and your family, and rest easy knowing you’ve planned ahead. Please contact us to learn more about Life Care.


Are there overnight accommodations for my guests?
We have a guest suite on property for family visits as well as preferred hotel rates at two nearby hotels, the Double Tree by Hilton in Henrietta and the Marriott Courtyard in Brighton.
Do I have a choice of meal plans?


We offer one easy, flexible meal plan. You’ll have a full kitchen in your apartment in which to prepare your own meals, if you prefer. We also provide complimentary coffee and muffins in the lobby each morning.

What activities and fitness programs are available to residents?

Our cultural arts director plans a diverse calendar of many activities each month. Transportation to offsite events is complimentary. We have a well-equipped fitness room with a certified personal trainer. Small group sessions and community-wide fitness classes are complimentary, as well as use of our swimming pool and Jacuzzi tub.

Do you offer transportation?

Yes! Our experienced and friendly drivers offer free transportation to activities, appointments, and more. We also offer a shopping service for local grocery stores and group transportation for outings throughout the month. 

What if I need a higher level of care after I move in?



Your ability to live safely and comfortably in your home is important to us. We’ll work with you to determine what options are best for you, based on your individual needs. If you participate in our Life Care program, you’ll have priority access to higher levels of care. We are unique in that all levels of care, from assisted living at Wolk Manor, to memory care at the Lodge at Wolk Manor and long-term care at the Jewish Home, are centrally located on one campus.



What happens if my spouse needs more care than I do?



There are several options available, depending on the level of care your spouse needs. Jewish Senior Life is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), offering all levels of care from independent living to skilled nursing care on a single campus.
