Live well. Be well.

WELLNESS

Life should be engaging, stimulating and entertaining. That’s why we created a comprehensive Wellness Program that includes Eight Dimensions of Wellness and an extensive calendar of programs, events and services designed to support and balance each dimension.

But more than programs and events is our compassionate team that skillfully assists residents, whether they are participating in regular activities or trying new things. No wonder residents and their families find it rewarding to experience wellness the Canterbury way.

EIGHT KEY DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
