I visited this facility

We've been to Canterbury on the Lake. It had 3 phases to it: senior living, assisted living, and nursing, so you won't have to be moved if you get really ill.

I've been there for my mother-in-law. My husband and I stopped by on a Sunday, and they didn't have anybody to take us through. I think the man who took us through acted like he didn't enjoy taking us through the facility. He wasn't enthusiastic, but he was polite enough, but it didn't seem like he was really into it. My sister's-in-law's grandmother stayed there till she died, so I know that it was a good facility.

It was clean. They had a lot of murals painted on the walls, and to me, if I was old, that would be confusing, but they might help seniors identify where they are. It seemed bright enough. They had a chapel that was very bright and nice.

auxillary help very good. nursing aid, physical therapy etc good...but nursing care was really poor/ my mother developed pneumonia and had a very hard time getting the lpn to take her temperature or even give her robitussin for her cough. (they had standard orders for it) When i complained about the nurse the Administrator t tried to tell me I was abusive and to take my mother out ....really again poor nursing

My mother-in-law is at Canterbury-On-the-Lake. The facility is clean and they had a lot of activities. They had a beauty shop there and a gift store. They have a lot of senior activities that they could sign up for and go for the day. The staff are very nice too.

My aunt has just moved into Canterbury-on-the-Lake. She has only been there for about two weeks, but she has made friends already. She likes this place. She is excited because they have lots of activities, like parties, touch ball, a little putting competition, etc. She goes exercise everyday and goes down for meals everyday. I went to visit her there the other day and she's so happy with this place. The grounds are so pretty. They're well kept. It is a large place. They have independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing care and a rehab area. However, because the place is big, it's so hard to find your way there.

We had a very nice experience when we visited Canterbury-on-the-Lake for my parents. I liked the area surrounding this community. It was very open. When we were there, there weren't any activities going on at that time. However, they were setting up for the night. They were doing a casino night. They explained to us that residents would earn chips by participating in stuff and doing different things. It was really interesting. This community has independent and assisted living facilities. Both facilities were very nice, although getting from one area to another was a little confusing. Overall, the Canterbury-on-the-Lake is a very nice place for my parents.

My friend had a hip replacement she stayed at Canterbury on the Lake. I visited her there several times. The staff seemed professional and very friendly. It was quite an excellent facility. It was completely clean.

My Great Aunt moved into Canterbury On The Lake about three years ago. She moved there from another facility when they had an opening available for her. Canterbury has been great so far. They always have different activities going on, the staff members I've met have all been really friendly and attentive, and they all know her by name, which means a lot to me. The facility always looks very clean and inviting. There is also a salon on site, so the residents can still look their best without having to go too far. The bedrooms are a bit small as most residents have to share the room with another person, but they are still comfortable and have a large window with a good view. The menu seems good and they offer a lot of different food options, so the residents actually get a choice of what they want to eat every day. All in all, I'd say Canterbury On The Lake has been an excellent place for my loved one. She really feels at home there now, and she's made many great friends. It's a comfort to know that she's being well taken care of, so we don't have to worry about her so much.

Canterbury on the Lake is a fantastic facility. They have a great community of staff who truly care about their residents. They have an assortment of fun activities for the seniors to take part in, including bingo, arts and crafts, and occasional "field trips" for those able to go. The most fantastic part about this community is that it has different "steps." Seniors can enter into the senior living community, and when it becomes time, move into the assisted living community, housed in the same building. Finally, the building also houses a wonderful nursing home with a very dedicated staff for when residents must enter it. The best part is that residents are able to maintain long term relationships with the people around them, as all programs are housed in the same building, just in different wings. The exterior is also very beautiful, with a pond and fantastic landscape where residents can enjoy themselves when the weather allows. Overall, I was very happy with the quality of this community.

Visited this facility

After nearly five years of being in-home caregivers my wife and I knew it was time to place her mother into a nursing home. This was not an easy transition and we felt a sense of urgency since her Alzheimers condition was advancing. We were very impressed with curriculum of this healthcare facility and provided a tour by the Admissions Manager. We were taken by elevator to the floor where Alzheimers patients were cared for and found many in wheelchairs in the hallway. Here the patients were able to socialize with one another as part of their daily activities. They all seemed to be well taken care of and we received many smiles as we toured that floor of the nursing home. The only drawback of the facility is that there was a waiting list. Being pressed for a more immediate placement we had to look elsewhere for a nursing home location.
