What To Expect at The Terraces at Summitview

Since 1958, The Terraces at Summitview in Yakima, Washington, has been one of Central Washington’s most popular and respected senior living communities. Previously known as Living Care, it is one of HumanGood’s newest communities, becoming part of the HumanGood family in 2021. It’s more than just a place to lay your head at night. It’s a true community, offering delicious meals, lasting relationships and a committed staff who truly cares about its residents. 

Conveniently located in the heart of Yakima, The Terraces boasts a 10-acre campus with lush green spaces, beautiful walking paths and plenty of raised planter beds for your garden.

The Terraces at Summitview offers three living options:

1. Independent Living

Independent living is ideal for people in good health who want less stress and more amenities. Independent living caters to people seeking an active lifestyle with fewer responsibilities. Apartment homes are available on a rental basis with no longer-term contracts or entrance fees, and in a wide range of price points. 

2. Assisted Living

Assisted living offers the same amenities as independent living but with additional support. Assisted living preserves your independence by helping you with activities of daily living, so you can focus on doing the things you most enjoy. 

3. Skilled Nursing

Whether you need long- or short-term care, our skilled nursing community caters to your needs in an environment that prioritizes your autonomy and dignity. 

At The Terraces at Summitview, you will find: 

  • More than six decades of excellence from the community formerly known as Living Care. 

  • A beautiful 10-acre campus filled with green space located in the heart of Yakima. 

  • A rental community featuring spacious, modern, thoughtfully designed apartments with no entrance fee or long-term lease requirements.

  • Numerous social, cultural and spiritual opportunities. 

  • A welcoming, friendly community culture. 

  • Rich social, spiritual and cultural opportunities. 

  • Respect for your dignity and privacy — only the support you want, nothing more and nothing less. 

Our Life Plan Community includes people from many walks of life. Some come here planning to start businesses. Others are excited to curl up with a good book and their grandchildren. Our residents explore the world, the woods and their communities. They give back. You can do it all here, especially since you’ll no longer have to worry about home maintenance.
