I particularly appreciate: the wonderful homecare staff with their unfailing competencies and courtesy (I couldn’t manage without them); the opportunity weekly to attend chapel right here; the dining room services when I need them; and the good manners of the staff at all levels, which is unbelievably constant! Though, like any Manor resident I am always as independent as possible, it is good to know that should a health crisis occur, there is good, very competent experienced help to call on for immediate assistance.

Canterbury Foundation was accredited in June as a result of a thorough assessment of its services by surveyors from Accreditation Canada. The survey team spent three days at Canterbury, evaluating it against national standards. We voluntarily participate in the accreditation process to improve the quality of the services we provide to our residents.
Accreditation involves assessing processes that Canterbury has in place to ensure that we are providing the best quality of care and services to our residents.

We participate in accreditation because we believe that quality and safety matter to our residents and their families. We believe that improving the quality of our care is a continuous journey – a journey to which we are fully committed.
These achievements were only possible through the dedication of our board and staff who worked together to focus on quality improvements, resident safety and reducing risks for residents and staff.
Canterbury Foundation continues the accreditation process with another assessment slated for June 2017.
