Since I would not be able to do this at home. That said, it's outrageously expensive but comparable to other facilities I've checked. Based on the experience we have had so far, we would recommend this community to other families.

Maintenance is at best difficult
The staff are amazing and the director does all that he is allowed. It is frustrating the elevator in the chateau has not worked 5 times this year. It needs to be replaced. It seems that Koelsch is more interested in new facilities than keeping up the existing ones. Very frustrating if you can’t get to a doctor appointment because the elevator isn’t working. The stairs are not an option for seniors with walkers. Wry sad situation.

Excellent facilities, caring staff, dining and events
I highly recommend Canterbury Park. All the staff are friendly, professional and very helpful. The entire facility is well organized, maintenance and cleaning are always done on time and with a smile. The meals are excellent, served with a smile and professionally prepared. Living here is just what I looked forward to as a independent senior citizen. Residents are friendly and there is much activity, both planned and spontaneous. I am impressed with the all the staff from the director to the maintenance and housekeeping folks. They are indeed friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you all.

Great place for family members who need a little help
Overall experience 4+. We haven't used the nursing care as is starts at [fee removed] /month for each person & they couldn't guarantee showering in evening. So I do their med set up & assist with bathing. Seemed a bit steep for their price! Food has been constant problem. Usually is cold, or not great. But overall, my parents are happy there. My dad suffered a small stroke a few weeks ago and they responded quickly & appropriately. We were with him when it happened, thankfully. Bus service is great, drivers are very friendly. Apartment is wonderful and we'll set up for wheelchair.

A Great Place to Live, If You Can Afford
If you can afford it I would recommend you go for it. This is a lovely place to live and they will take care of all of your needs. Once you get past the front desk you are all set. The staff communication with the family could be better. One of the Director could have been better during our stay, as they didn't seem to be proactive in communication, caring, or doing anything with the job. The other Director seemed to be at the top of their game and willing to help the family. There were three meals a day and options for the residents to choose from. The food was excellent.

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!

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 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.

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
