4 Reasons You Should Discover the Magic of Canterbury Woods

Oct 9, 2020

Halloween is approaching and magic is in the air … and at Canterbury Woods Williamsville, we’re inviting you to come, visit and discover the magic of our amazing community for yourself.

“I may be a bit biased, but the lifestyle, amenities and services you’ll find here make life a bit of a fairy tale,” says Lynda Marino, Marketing Director at Canterbury Woods Williamsville, a Life Care Community in Williamsville, NY. “Imagine: you move to a place where your every need is planned for, where service is unparalleled and everyone around you is focused on providing the best possible experience for you. That’s life at Canterbury Woods Williamsville.”

Lynda says that retirement should be all about choices, and that’s what you’ll find on the 62-acre campus in suburban Williamsville. “We understand that everyone wants something different, so our goal is to help you find your happy ever after,” she says. “Canterbury Woods offers gracious living and a luxurious lifestyle, first-class health care and all the amenities and services you need to create your ideal retirement lifestyle.”

  1. Retirement Your Way

You’ve spent years dreaming about what you would do after you retire. How do you want to spend your days? What adventures would you like to take? What sort of things would you like to say goodbye to … and what things would you like to welcome with open arms? Our carefree lifestyle means you can cross all those to-dos off your list and fill your time with exactly what you want to do, when you want to do it. We have a full range of services and amenities at Canterbury Woods that are designed to make your days as enjoyable as possible.

No longer will you have to worry about lawn care, home repairs, property taxes or any other home hassles. Our maintenance staff handles everything, even when it comes to shoveling the driveway and salting the sidewalks. Have you dedicated that you’ve done enough cooking and you never want to turn on an oven again? We invite you to pull up a chair to one of our dining rooms you’ll find on campus and taste the delicious Canterbury Woods difference. And our Activities Director fills our events calendar so that every day there are opportunities for socialization, fitness, learning and recreation, all on site.

  1. Peace of Mind

No one likes to worry about what’s to come. As we get older, we know we will more than likely have health issues that will require a certain level of care. While we can’t wave a magic wand and promise you perfect health for the rest of your life, we can do the next best thing: we can promise that you will always receive the care and support you need right here on campus, no matter what you may face today, tomorrow or long into the future.

That’s the magic of Life Care at Canterbury Woods. It’s a promise we make to you and your loved ones that you have a plan in place that protects you from growing long-term care costs, preserves your assets and provides you and your family with peace of mind. Whether you want to continue to live in your maintenance free home with visits from registered nurses and staff, a comfortable assisted living apartment in beautiful Oxford Village or skilled nursing services, we will provide it for you at the same cost with the high-quality care and service you’ve come to expect.

  1. Health for Today and Tomorrow

True wellness means so much more than physical health. At Canterbury Woods, we understand the magic that full-body wellness brings to the aging adult. To that end, we offer a variety of choices to maintain optimal health of mind, body and soul. Our on-site fitness center offers exercise options and fitness classes, with staff available to help ensure that everything is tailored to your needs and abilities. We offer lifelong learning opportunities, whether that’s college classes, cooking instructions, art therapy, cultural events and more – anything that engages the mind and enriches the soul. We also know that human connection is something we should cherish, and so we provide so many opportunities to socialize, make connections and create lifelong friendships.

  1. A Dream Living Space

Home is where the heart is, which is why we have created a place you’ll absolutely love. Our luxury floor plans for our apartments and patio homes offer a wide range of places and spaces to choose from. If a luxury apartment is what you’re looking for, you can choose from more than 30 floor plans, ranging in size from 560 square feet to more than 1,400 square feet. Or, if you’d prefer a private patio home, you have options ranging all the way up to 2,264 square feet. Whatever option you choose, be assured that you will enjoy only the finest fixtures and finishings. All living options have ample closet space, spacious bathrooms, central heating and air, wiring ready for cable, telephone and Internet and numerous safety features, including emergency response systems so that help is never more than a button-push away.

“When you get right down to it, life at Canterbury Woods is designed to make your life a dream come true, which is pretty magical,” says Lynda. “I can say that working here is pretty magical as well. My team and I are excited to come into work every day to see our residents, interact with them and help them live the lifestyle they deserve. They definitely become part of our family, and we love making them smile, laugh and enjoy each day.”

Continuum of Care

As a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Canterbury Woods Communities provide a comfortable environment and first-rate services to support every level of need. Assisted living apartments allow Williamsville residents to benefit from additional support while maintaining their independent lifestyle. If skilled nursing, rehabilitation or memory care is ever needed, residents can experience the support they require. They can also enjoy all this and more at our sister community in Buffalo.

Financial benefits of living in a continuing care retirement community

There are many advantages of moving to a continuing care retirement community. One of the most important is the peace of mind that comes with knowing greater levels of health care are available if you need more assistance in the future. You’ll find that peace of mind at Canterbury Woods Williamsville and Canterbury Woods Gates Circle, but don’t overlook the financial benefits that go along with it.  If you join a community that includes contract health care services, such as assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care, your community is obligated to provide you with these services. When you pay a nonrefundable or partly refundable entrance fee, you may be eligible for significant tax breaks. That’s because part of your entrance fee and monthly fees are considered prepayment for future health care services.
