The Canterbury Towers assisted living facility in Tampa was one of the places we saw while looking in the region for my friend's mother.
The exterior grounds were designed a lot like a resort or hotel, with nicely appointed and beautifully landscaped greenery and gorgeous views of the bay.
Their library was impressive, with many good books and games. They also offer Internet access.
The fitness center had well maintained equipment and ample rooms, including a pool where they have water aerobics. They also had daily classes and the residents could safely navigate the lovely grounds with adequate supervision.
The food we saw looked and smelled delicious and like what you would find in a five star eatery. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them. The meal menus all had healthy food options for all kinds of diets. The dining room was quite nice, with plenty of space.
The living spaces were generous, with several different floor plans to choose from. Each unit included beautiful kitchens, plenty of closet space and nice sized bedrooms.
The residents are taken to many interesting events in the Tampa region -- to take advantage of the vast cultural activities. The many planned activities featured everything one could imagine, and they take suggestions from residents.
This is by far one of most beautiful facilities we've seen thus far. The staff was exceptional and we could recommend living here to any senior looking for an exquisite place to live with very attentive staff and the best amenities available.
