Description of Canterfield of Fort Myers
From our spacious, graciously appointed apartments and independent living villas, you will enjoy views of our landscaped property filled with greenery. Our exquisite courtyards will inspire all the beauty the outdoors has to offer and provide an opportunity to bring peace and calmness to your day.
As a vital component of what we offer, our continuum of care will offer the security of being cared for throughout the process of aging. As a resident's needs evolve, we offer the environments and services to respond to their changing healthcare requirements through our "neighborhood-style" community personal care. Understanding the unique individuality of each resident provides a fresh approach to care, always supporting their highest level of independence.
Our restaurant style dining experience combines the warmth of home with a 5-star atmosphere. With our first class amenities, provided transportation, and unsurpassed hospitality services, the community embraces a lifestyle that is gracious and refined.
Our community is responsive to offering our residents the care they need throughout the process of aging. Because different care and housing options are available in the same residential setting, couples can continue to live together in light of their differing healthcare needs. This variety of options instills peace of mind where residents can experience optimal aging and have the security of being cared for throughout the process of growing older.
Our team of talented, compassionate nurses and personal care staff provide care 24 hours each day, seven days a week. They design a personalized and individualized service plan with each resident who receives personal care. Through the efforts of our Wellness Director, care will be coordinated to include a full range of home health, physician and rehabilitation services, allowing residents to remain in the setting they now call "home".
To further insure the continuity of meeting your healthcare needs, Canterfield has worked to establish relationships with hospitals, skilled nursing, and allied health services in the local area.
