LifeSpire of Virginia CEO Letter to Team Members of The Summit

July 26, 2021

Dear Summit Team Members,

On behalf of LifeSpire of Virginia’s Board of Trustees and our leadership team, I want to enthusiastically welcome you to the LifeSpire of Virginia family as we expand our mission of empowering individuals with choices in purposeful living. When we visited The Summit in April, we were very impressed with the compassion and caring that was exhibited by all team members we interacted with.

We’re looking forward to meeting you in person when our team visits The Summit on August 4th and 5th. We have quite a bit of information to share with you about what to expect in the days, weeks and months ahead, including a calendar of events for the process of officially welcoming you as a LifeSpire of Virginia team member.

We hope you’re excited for The Summit team to become a component of the LifeSpire of Virginia team. We take great pride in providing educational and career growth opportunities for team members and are eager to share more about our culture, our core values and what it means to be a member of our team. We know you take great pride in the work you do at The Summit and we are looking forward to learning about the unique culture and values that has made The Summit a success.

Over the next few months, we will be learning from you as we work closely together to ensure a successful integration for both team members and residents. 

Again, we’re thrilled to welcome you and The Summit into the LifeSpire of Virginia family and look forward to seeing you next week. If you have any questions regarding this exciting time in LifeSpire of Virginia’s and The Summit’s history, please do not hesitate to reach out.


Jonathan R. Cook
