Clean and Nice

reviewed on: 08/20/2013 by Rosemary

It was very nice and everything; it was the location more than anything else that made our decision for us. Another place was just more convenient. It was very clean and the man was very nice.

Very nice place

We're very pleased with how things have turned out with Canterbury Village, it's a very nice place overall! The people here are friendly, the facility is clean and well kept, and the residents seem happy. It's just a very nice place, overall!

Pay a visit. I think you will be comforted after you see this community.

My mother lived in two assisted living communities before we found Canterbury. The first community was very pretty, fresh flowers, piano in the lobby, a nicely landscaped area with fountain spraying water into the pond. Her apartment was the right size for her and we decorated it beautifully and she was comfortable. However, after one fall that was caused by another resident, and another fall caused by my mother's refusal to call for help, we were forced to hire a 24 hour live-in OR get out. When the cost of that help pushed the monthly expenses to nearly 10,000.00, we had to search for another place. We found one we liked, maybe not quite so elegant, but they did not require the 24 hour live-in. People there were so pleasant, it was cheerful, residents were encouraged to participate in conversation groups, music, games, and general socializing. But, over time, cost per month became an issue so we started the search all over again. Canterbury was suggested to me by Ruth Caporizzo. She told me we would be doing ourselves a favor if we would see the place and consider it carefully. My sister was the first to visit and explore the accommodations, gathering rooms, and the pocket gardens which were very charming that time of year. I went the following day, early in the morning, and unannounced. That is the very best way to judge cleanliness, as we have learned. Everything was so clean and tidy. The carpets, wall paper and drapes give a country cottage feel, well decorated, bright with sunlight. Windows and French doors let out into the little gardens, one of which had BBQ equipment for outdoor cooking in the good weather. A grand piano sat in the main room used for socializing, music, movies, and a fireplace is the focal point in another area of the large space. I was so surprised to see such a pretty interior because the exterior is deceivingly simple, tidy yes, but not fancy. My mother was welcomed and every time we visited, which was at least once a week, my mother was in the middle of a group of residents who were watching an old movie or were talking as a group about a particular topic. Not that my mother participated always, but it was good to see her not sitting alone. I would suggest to a family who are looking for "A Place for Mom" do, please, take a few minutes to see Canterbury. It may be just the place you were hoping to find and, maybe, at a cost that will surprise you. We learned that it isn't always money that matters while judging how happy your loved one will be nor how well she is truly cared for by dedicated people.

The Tour My Husband Had

reviewed on: 01/11/2017 by Anonymous

My husband went on the tour to see what is was like at this community. He told me he didn't care for it as much. It did not appear to be as bright and lively. WE had hoped for a different atmosphere.

We love it hands down!

The staff is very polite and very helpful with anything that my sister needs. The community is just beautiful and it is always clean and bright. The meals are good as well. I really like that it is close to me so I can visit my sister more now.
