Health Benefits of Senior Living Communities

One of the biggest benefits of living in a retirement or senior living community are the health and wellness advantages they provide. These communities are designed to support all aspects of your well-being, offering on-campus amenities like fitness centers and social groups, as well as care and support opportunities. With step-free entryways, wide walkways, and on-site wellness services, as well as numerous other holistic amenities, Canterbury-on-the-Lake is designed so you can enjoy your time and pursue your passions.

Social Opportunities for a Healthy Life

A vibrant social life is key to a healthy life. Senior living communities provide countless opportunities to form connections with new friends and strengthen old friendships. With a range of activities including clubs and day trips, as well as gathering spaces like our library and putting green, there are countless ways to enjoy time with neighbors who share your same zest for life.


Maintenance-Free Living

One of the biggest perks of senior living communities is their hassle-free lifestyle. With services that handle home maintenance, housework, and yard work, you can stop worrying about throwing your back out shoveling snow or gardening. Fewer chores not only frees up your time for hobbies, friends, grandchildren, and more, but also helps prevent the accidents and injuries that can come with maintaining a home.


Continuing Care

The support and supplemental care opportunities available at senior living communities are key to aging in place. Continuing care options give you the peace-of-mind that if your care or assistance needs change, you can get the services you need right in the community. At Canterbury-on-the-Lake, we offer both assisted living and memory care options, as well as additional health services like long-term care and inpatient rehab all under one roof. Our wellness clinic gives residents easy access to licensed nurse practitioners, physicians, and a podiatrist.
