OUR RICH HISTORY

Our Beginning
In 1958, Ross Farnsworth and his father Joe began developing communities that were specifically designed to meet the needs of active adults. Since then, Farnsworth Development has built thousands of homes in the East Valley and earned a reputation for quality construction and outstanding customer service.
New Addition 1980
Continued Excellence
In 2008, Craig Ahlstrom Jr joined the company, representing the fourth generation to become involved in senior housing, thus continuing the tradition of excellence that has been handed down through the years.
A New Beginning 2011
Opening Doors
The Summit represents decades of experience and hard work and it is a new chapter of senior housing that will enhance the lives of many seniors needing the extra care and concern that they so richly deserve.
The Summit at Sunland Springs opened its doors in January 2013 offering Memory Care Services to those needing more assistance as they age.
Assisted Living Opens 2017
Looking Ahead
The Summit at Sunland Springs was designed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of its residents and its staff and that is what the team works each day and night to do!
We began in 1958
To The Third Generation
In 1980, son in law Craig Ahlstrom joined the family business beginning the third generation of the Farnsworth legacy.
The Fourth Generation 2008
A New Era
In 2011 a new company was founded by the Ahlstrom’s which would take the great reputation of the past, add to it new ideas for the future, and offer new housing types which will assist those who need higher levels of care as they age – thus the idea for The Summit was born.
The Summit Opens 2013
The Next Phase
In the Summer of 2017, the construction of a second phase of the community totaling 108 units of Assisted Living, was opened. Located in East Mesa, The Summit is nestled within Sunland Springs Village, one of the largest active adult retirement communities in the valley built by The Farnsworth Family. The Summit is ideally located near restaurants, shopping centers, hospitals, and more. It’s a convenient location for neighboring communities such as Chandler and Gilbert.

TESTIMONIALS

Landus F

This community exceeded my expectations and the price here was exceptional…This place is immaculate and if my mom needed something done maintenance was there within a few minutes…If I ever had a concern the caregivers would take care of it immediately. It was unbelievable. There are other communities that are great but they are still a step down from this community. She was here for three years and I didn't ever regret my decision to put her here. I would recommend them to anyone and I would say someone is a fool for not choosing this community.

They have done a good job of taking care of our dad's needs and making sure he is well taken care of.  They have all been incredibly helpful.  Ginger especially has been supportive and has made the process easy and straight forward.  They make sure everything is clean and garbage is taken out regularly.  They come in and change the linens, they've been very good.  I would recommend them.

"We had confidence that my mom was receiving the appropriate attention and care she needed which took pressure off of me to be there constantly.

My dad lives at the community and he feels safe & comfortable. When you walk up, the building has an inviting appearance. The management is transparent with any topics that we've discussed and I feel very confident with them. The healthcare staff is respectful, accessible and responsive. Housekeeping is good and they keep dad well informed on when they're coming. Their activity people do a good job of interacting with the residents, their outside entertainment was top notch and you can see that a lot of hard work was done by the staff for holidays. Overall, it's a very friendly environment and I just appreciate every single staff member there.
