Assisted Living Reviews for Canterbury Village of West Orange

I visited this facility

I visited Canterbury Village, I liked it, and I spoke to the director, but it was not the level of care for my mother. It was also a little farther away from where we live. The girl that gave me the tour was great, and she gave us the information that we needed. There were about fifty people all on one floor, and it was cozy.

I liked Canterbury Village very much and am seriously considering using them. The facility was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly, and the residents seemed very nice. It seemed to be a good fit for my parents.

I visited this facility

Canterbury Village looked OK, but everywhere I went, I could smell urine, and that was not good for me. The dining area was more like a cafeteria. It looked fine, but it was far away. They did have activities. I did see that they have people come in to entertain them. They also have a dog come in for companionship too.

I visited this facility

Canterbury seemed clean, the staff seemed good, but it was not active enough for my mother. The rooms were quite small, and there was a long waiting list, so it put me off.

I always felt like the facility was clean and the staff was friendly. They had a variety of activities to try and keep the residents engaged. For example, Christmas caroles, movies, assorted presentations and shows. There were many residents with dementia. They also kept a very pleasant dining room where the residents came to eat dinner. It felt very cozy. In fact, the entire facility had some charm to it. I think the staff really tried to make it feel like a home away from home. The only disturbing part for me, was the my Grandmother fell a few times in their care and I didn't think they cared enough for her appearance. Helping to keep her clean and presentable is important to our family, as was her safety. I think after the first fall, more precautions should have been in place, such as moving furniture and getting her a better chair for her room. All in all, however, I would recommend this facility. It was clean and the staff was kind and seemed to care. However, I firmly believe that all residents need an outside advocate to look after their needs.

The Canterbury Village of West Orange was one of the few area assistant living facilities we visited. My first impressions was that it gave me a homely feeling from the outside and main foyer. The description of services was explained but I really didn't feel that they lived up to their expectations. They have a medical staff on duty 24-hours, seven days a week , which I thought was very important due to my uncle condition. After doing research on the doctors, they had a good re pore, which made feel very comfortable. Another aspect that was important was daily activities for active seniors. The activity agenda was not good to me. The activities seem planned for stationary seniors rather than active seniors. The dining setting made feel like you were eating in your personal dining area. The food quality wasn't the best but doable. The financial cost was on the expensive side for what they offered.

Visited this facility

I visited Canterbury Village in West Orange on five occassions through an art program there. This is a warm and inviting residence. The staff greet you with a smile at the front door and try to address your needs instantly. Upon walking through the front door I witnessed how clean and meticulous the furniture and upholstery was. The furniture was in very good condition and the colors were bright and vibrant throughout the house. I say "house" because it felt like I was visiting a family in their lovely abode. It is a pretty intimitate group and I would imagine each resident gets the care and attention they require because the staff were so involved during my visit; they even participated in the activities. Upon completing the program, I was informed by a resident of how well she is treated by the staff. The majority of the diverse men and women who live at Canterbury Village are bound to wheelchairs so they require plenty of intricate attention; therefore, it was gratifying hearing her praises. I had no doubts about the genuine care of the individuals there because it was all revealed to me the minute I walked through the door.
