    Frequently Asked Questions

    Giving you the answers you need about Canterbury Woods Williamsville.
    We know that a diagnosis of memory loss can come with some challenging questions and decisions, but Canterbury Woods is here to make it easier. Whether you’re wondering when it may be time to move, or you are already preparing for a loved one’s move, we can help answer your questions.

    When is it time to move from assisted living to memory care?

    Though this differs for everyone, there are often some key signs that memory support may be needed. According to the Alzheimer’s AssociationⓇ, some of the early signs can include:

    • Forgetting important dates or events and needing constant reminders, or memory loss that disrupts daily life
    • Challenges with problem-solving, concentrating or planning
    • Difficulty completing familiar daily tasks or trouble traveling to a place they know well
    • Confusion with time, place, or having trouble remembering where they are or how they arrived
    • Vision problems; issues judging distance, color or contrast
    • New problems with speaking or writing
    • Misplacing items and being unable to retrace steps to find them
    • Accusing others of stealing
    • Poor judgment and decision-making
    • Withdrawing from favorite activities, work or social events
    • Changes in mood, especially as their routine is disrupted or they are out of their comfort zone

    If you think your loved one may be dealing with memory loss, talk to their doctor, as they may be able to help you evaluate what is normal aging and what may be memory loss.

    Does Canterbury Woods assist with a move when the time comes?

    Yes. We will absolutely assist with a move or honor what the family members prefer; it is completely the family’s choice.
