Excellent Place

My mom really likes this community. She really enjoys the food served, the residents receive 3 meals a day, they are very accommodating to my loved one. The communication with the staff is good but could be a little better. The community activities are bingo, they have an exercise program and many more. My mom seems to really like the social aspect of this community.

Tour experience

Canterbury Inn was great and the Liasons was a great person people. But my Dad is what they consider Medically Complex. This facility's RNs felt that my Dad would require a lot of attention/monitoring. They felt he probably would be better served in Skilled Nursing and not their facilities. Weird part is they never even met with my Dad for a assessment. This was just them reviewing his medical records. So it's not that I didn't choose them. They just told me no thanks!

This community was not quite as good as the main community that I went with. My main choice just stood out too much for me to go with the other.

I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. They were very accommodating for the family and the residents. The staff were very friendly. They assisted in staying in the guidelines during COVID, and keeping our loved one safe.

Great experience

Canterbury Inn has been absolutely wonderful. The staff members here have been honest and caring. It has been a totally different experience than what we had at his previous facility. They were totally prepared for his Alzheimer's and the care here needed and we were lucky to find this place. I would absolutely recommend to others.

Beautiful place

I have been in the Canterbury Inn many times visiting. It is such beautiful place. Seeing the people that live there, you can tell staff care for them. The staff are friendly and smiling. They have really worked hard during this hard year we have been in. I can't wait for them to have their Bazaar again. I would love to live here.

A welcoming, friendly retirement facility.

My mother has enjoyed living at Canterbury Inn for the past 7 years. After investigating all the retirement homes in our area, we concluded this one was the best. Comfortable apartments, well-maintained, a lovely spacious dining room with 3 meals a day provided, nursing staff available 24 hr a day for any emergent situations, wonderful senior activities programs. All this factored into Mom’s initial decision to reside at Canterbury. But what I have learned since then and what is most important to me is the caring, warmth and thoughtfulness of all the staff towards my mom. I have complete confidence that my mom is safe and well cared for. In my interactions with the staff, they are always patient with both my mom and myself, obviously caring, go out of their way to help, conscientious. As a retired nurse, I appreciate when medical related issues have occurred with my mom the staff has responded quickly and accurately assessed the situation, giving me confidence and peace of mind.

Dont get fooled just because of there smile...

Never use this place for your loved one....this place is all smiles and hugs....untill you decide to not use them. Then they are the rudest people you could meet ....They have a horrible admin that will allow there emplyees to make unfounded claims without even knowing who the tennant even is.....when your staff looks like a homeless person what does that say about your place.......we regret even having our loved one stay a day at that place.

A place of disappointment.

This is a very beautiful facility. Quiet rooms. Several gathering places and activities for the residents. The people are friendly and caring. Overall my Mom is happy there. They have weekly housecleaning service. They check on the residents daily. The van service to get them to doctor appointments has been very good. I wish I could give this place a 5-star rating for these reasons. But I cannot for a few glaring inadequacies. First is the food. It had improved some for awhile, but has gone down hill again. They even put in a new kitchen, but without a qualified chef, the food is mediocre at best. Not what you would expect from this type of place. The residents complain a lot amongst themselves, but don't voice it as they feel it wouldn't help. They have been served both over and undercooked dishes like: raw cornbread, raw chicken, and hockey puck meatloaf and hamburger patties, along with tasteless foods. Slightly cooked broccoli is a favorite for them to serve which those on certain medications should limit. It would help if it was soft enough to chew. The second issue has been medication administration. My mom has had 6 errors in her [Removed] administration that we have caught in this last year. So far, thankfully, there have been no ill consequences. The leadership has appeared interested in correcting problems when brought to their attention and have made some changes, but I do not feel very comfortable yet.

My Dad,s perfect care

My 98 year old father spent the last 2 1/2 years of his life in Canterbury Inn. The last 6 months were under Hospice care with CI nursing staff working hand-in-hand with the hospice nurses. Every person working at CI was so caring and attentive to Dad's needs and kept him so comfortable to the very end. Family was always kept informed and we can't praise Canterbury Inn enough. Thank you for Dad's outstanding care.
