A long history of compassion
GOOD SAMARITAN FUND
Like the Good Samaritan who cared for a wounded man and paid for his stay at an inn while he recovered, Canterbury-on-the-Lake has a continued commitment to people in need.
The Good Samaritan Fund provides financial support to residents who have exhausted their own finances. Most planned well for their retirement, but were caught in the middle of unplanned events that required help.
For example, while Medicare covers medical costs for seniors no matter where they live, it does not cover the cost of living in Independent or Assisted Living. And while Medicaid might cover the cost of living in a long-term skilled nursing facility, it will not cover the cost of living in Independent or Assisted Living.
LIFE ENRICHMENT FUND
Through this fund, begun by a generous bequest in 1996, Canterbury residents have daily access to activities designed to improve life through positive programming and a nurturing environment. These life-enriching programs include plants, animals and activities to keep bodies, minds and souls active.
For example, the Life Enrichment Fund supports our aviaries and aquarium in The Pavilion Health and Rehabilitation Center. Our Activities Department even schedules events and learning opportunities around the aviaries and aquarium.
A recent, very generous gift has enabled us to move forward with our Memory Care Community and other enhancements to The Pavilion Health and Rehabilitation Center. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2016.
