I have talked to some people, and they have all been wonderful. Canterbury Gardens is one of the best communities, and it is a beautiful place. The people are really great. They’ve got a great nursing staff, and the people at the front desk were really kind.
It’s very well done and pretty. Although the price is a little high, you are getting what you pay for. It has a lot of things to offer for the elderly and the people that need assistance. The only complaint that my father has ever had is their menu. The food is fine, but some of the menu should be designed a little bit better for elderly people. The chef there needs to realize that they need healthy food, and they also need food that they can chew. The menu could improve as far as having better food for them to eat easily. They take care of you really well there, and they take tours all over the place, shopping, and out to dinner. They have bingo, they bring a minister in, and they play pool and billiards. They’ve got music and different talented individuals. They’ve got a beautiful piano, so they do have people that come to entertain. They offer a variety of things there. They’ve got a beauty salon and movies, and they’ve got a nice place if you have family gatherings.
My father has a regular room with a bathroom, and he seems to be content. The bathrooms are huge, and the room is nice. He has got a little microwave and a refrigerator. They have another unit across the street which is very nice for extreme Alzheimer’s and dementia.
