For residents with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and other memory challenges, we offer a comprehensive memory
program. Our program enhances the lifestyle of those with early memory loss by giving them an opportunity
to live an active and fulfilling life while enjoying continuity through Canterfield’s neighborhood concept
with the same staff members day in and day out. Our goal is to focus on the dignity, safety, and quality
of life of each of our residents.
Just the right amount of support is offered and adjusted whenever necessary. Given proper nutrition, programming
and surroundings, we believe residents naturally function at a higher level at Canterfield as individualized
"memory activities" are developed to stimulate, recall, and deter additional memory loss issues.
The Canterfield Assisted Living building is approximately 80,000 square feet. There are 91 units total, 20 of
which are Memory Care units.
The size of each apartment home varies, although all have been designed for comfort, elegance, and accessibility.
We offer units with one bedroom as well as studio apartments.
In each standard apartment home you will find fully equipped kitchenettes with a mini refrigerator.
Further, a washer and dryer is available in the building for personal use. Apartment homes will have individualized
heating and air conditioning systems and include closet space. At Canterfield, separate neighborhood settings
are established for residents who may need a higher level of care. The result is a more friendly atmosphere
where residents are familiar with each other and their caregivers.
Canterfield aims to have a wide range of entertainment and programs available. We feature a lounge, game room,
multi-purpose room, theater, and fitness facility. There is also a formal dining room, beauty salon, arts
