Canterbury is a very safe and comfortable place. The staff are all very kind and helpful. We are very lucky and thankful to have them. I think Canterbury should be looking for land to build another Canterbury.

CANTERBURY FOUNDATION EXPANSION AND RENOVATION PROJECT
Canterbury Foundation has been providing high quality supportive living for senior’s for over 45 years. It is uniquely positioned to meet the growing need for seniors’ services in Edmonton.
But over the years those needs have changed. More and more people are living longer and not looking for more advanced care until well into the 90’s when they have more complex and often dementia care needs.
To continue to provide a promise of home for all Senior’s and meet these care needs, Canterbury Foundation must renovate and expand its current facility.
Canterbury Foundation broke ground on their Renovation and Expansion project on June 27, 2019. The project includes:
- a brand new 5 story addition with 50 larger, more modern suites using up-to-date architectural design. As part of this exciting expansion project, Canterbury’s current dementia care program will expand from 20 to 53 much needed spaces.
- Canterbury will fully renovate its 45 year old facility and will incorporate the only end- of-life-care residential hospice in Edmonton. The unit will have 16 beds plus a guest room for family members. A multidisciplinary team of care providers and specialized programming will meet the needs of residents as well as provide support and comfort to their family members.
- Canterbury’s service outreach program will redevelop common area spaces to enable seniors living in their own homes, to participate in the programs offered to Canterbury residents. Canterbury will expand programming capacity to serve seniors in west Edmonton in their own homes.
- Upgrading the physical design of existing suites and rooms to accommodate seniors’ mobility needs and care needs, more Canterbury residents will “age in community” rather than being forced to move as their care needs increase.
It is Canterbury’s vision to provide a Promise of Home: where seniors live with dignity in a loving faith-based community that is open to anyone.
The project’s $31.5 million dollar capital cost will be raised through a community fundraising campaign.
We hope you join us in this exciting project to provide on-going care to the senior’s within the Edmonton community. To donate just click the link. We thank you for your generous donation.
