Safe, caring, and clean
My mom has been at Canterbury House for two years and enjoys it very much. As with any congregate living situation, family type "issues" arise. But the home is safe, clean, and caring. The staff welcomes family members to dinner anytime. I recommend this place for your loved ones.
According to what I hear from my mother who is living there at Canterbury House, they are not very generous with the food. That is certainly the biggest area that they have for improvement. Other than that it is ok. Very nice facility and staff.
The "onsite beautification" are some dull shrubs near the all black front door
There is only one ramp for handicap access...around the side of the building where you have to cross a lawn with a slight incline and no other way up besides stairs.
The "activities" are few and far between and when there are it's an hour of bingo MAYBE once or twice a month.
The "devotional services" happen once a month. If that.
The residents pay for/schedule their own visiting nurses and whatnot. Not the facility.
The rent is upwards of 1,000 a month and all they really get are meals and basic electric/heat/water included. They have to pay for their own phone, internet, and/or tv.
The residents are not allowed to offer input on new projects and if they try to offer input on how they want their living facility to be they are ignored.
There is a washer and dryer hookup available but residents are chastised if their load isn't big enough because otherwise they're wasting water and money on running the machines.
If they don't like what the main meal choice is (because they get no say in that either) the only alternatives offered are eggs or cereal with a side of toast.
The rooms are cleaned by an employee...once a week.
If a resident doesn't really feel like eating they don't get much say in it and will be told to come to eat anyway.
The administrator seems phony like he only smiles and acts friendly to sell another 1,000+ dollar room.
"...a retirement home for independent seniors..."
Canterbury House is a not-for-profit corporation that maintains an affordable senior residence for persons, 55 and above, who need companionship and safety but are not ready for a nursing home.
Residents may stay for long or short periods. There is no lease to sign nor income restrictions.
We have been serving seniors since 1854!
Canterbury House offers an exceptional value compared to the high cost of assisted living and other senior housing facilities in the area.
