About the community Canterbury Inn

Canterbury Inn, a Koelsch Community, is located in suburban Longview Washington close to medical facilities, shopping, parks, entertainment, beautiful walking paths at Lake Sacajawea, and just a short 60 minute drive to the West Coast or the Portland OR. airport.

At Canterbury Inn our 24 hour on-site licensed nurses and caregivers offer resident's assistance when needed in an environment of independence and comfort, in the privacy of their own apartment. Our nurses provide individualized medical services day or night, on weekends, and care when responding unexpected emergencies.

We recognize that aging is a natural progression and our residents deserve the comfort of knowing they may receive increased levels of care when and if the need arises. Our continuum of care options may alleviate the inconvenience and anxiety of moving from one senior community to another, for some this may be an alternative to a nursing home. Couples are welcome to stay in the same apartment even though their needs may differ greatly.

Our Respite Care (short stay) program offers a short-term break for those caring for a loved one. Respite residents receive a furnished apartment, and the same amenities, accommodations, and services as our permanent residents. Even...

Easy to Work With

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.

A little to steep for our budget with no pay down to Medicaid. Would prefer to not go to Longview if we don't have to.

Wonderful forever home

I looked into this place for my mom. What I found first was how welcoming the staff are. From that first call in, they listened to what I was looking for. It was a hard time for my family but they helped us.

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.

My mother is alone for the first time in her life. The staff has been helpful to her, and also to me. She is getting the stimulation that she needs by having other people around. She has meet a couple of ladies that are becoming friends. Would I do this again? I would say Yes.

Our emotional journey with a happy ending.

After seeing a commercial on TV called " A Place for MOM " I contacted them and spoke with Grace, she was so helpful in my search for assisted living for my mother. Grace gave me contact information for all the facilities located in the Longview/Kelso area. The Canterbury Inn was one of the facilities she directed me to and there I made contact with Kris, she took my husband and I on a tour and gave us all the information we needed. We were so impressed with the facility and it's employees, the beautiful areas and the very nice apartments. We took mom for lunch and to see how she liked it and she will be moving in shortly. We cannot thank Grace and Kris enough for making this emotional journey with us. I feel The Canterbury Inn is going to be a wonderful home for my mother. Thanks again.

We Made a Great Choice, The Right Choice.

It was unbelievable that we found a place that my family and I felt so good about moving my dad in to. The warm atmosphere and endless social rooms and activities were fabulous but nothing compared to the pleasant helpful staff. Kudos to Kris who made every move in stumbling block a small pebble. We couldn't have done it without her help in finding funds through the VA. Thanks to all the loving, kind staff.

Doesn't Have That Old People Smell

The reason we chose Canterbury Inn, Longview WA because the facility had a clean smell and very well kept. The staff is very skilled and even though my father is not happy he is getting the right care and support. We do recommend Canterbury
