I have worked at COTL for 4yrs now and TINA BRINDLEY is the BEST DON by far! She came to the facility with a WEALTH of knowledge and HUGE focus on THE RESIDENTS! Tina is just what the facility needed! Her experience is remarkable, she was implementing safety procedures during this terrible time of Covid before the governor even thought about it! Tina is fair and will help you in any way she can! Tina has a heart of gold and is extremely hard working when it comes to the residents and the staff! One thing for sure and two things for certain CANTERBURY STAFF AND RESIDENTS LOVE TINA BRINDLEY!!!!Canterbury is a very clean and beautiful facility and we have staff who has worked there for 25yrs!

Being a scheduler during a pandemic has been very difficult but the team at canterbury-on-the-lake has made it easy to to my job during difficult times. A large part of that is due to the DON. She appreciates all her staff and lets them know it. She also holds her staff to high standards which has kept the virus out of our building. I dont think we could have made it through this without her. I have seen other managers be ok with mediocre staff because the numbers look good on paper. I like having a DON that cares about our residents and the people that take care of them.

I have worked for COTL for almost 3 year back in Feb, March right before COVID all hit we got a new Director nursing. Tina has been a god sent to this company through is pandemic. She has been the voice for the residents and the staff in this time of need. She has put her family aside to make sure we get what we need to get through these im president times. She makes me comfortable to come to her about anything even family related issues not just work. Thank you Tina for all you do for everyone at COTL. I appreciate you !

I absolutely love Canterbury-on-the-lake. I have a professional relationship with this facility in that I teach classes here. When I chat with the residents, theyre all very happy and have a great sense of community. The staff knows each person by name and treats them like well loved family. You can actually feel the love that surrounds the people in this building. The workers here actually care about their residents and their jobs and you can see that. Its a beautiful facility.

When my grandma started needing some extra care and my family started looking for a nursing home for her to stay in, I was so glad that she ended up at Canterbury on the Lake. Everyone was so attentive and friendly that you could tell she was really enjoying her time there. They made sure to keep my parents up to date on all of the care she was receiving, so everyone had peace of mind knowing grandma was being well taken care of. I would highly recommend Canterbury on the Lake for any senior living.

Canterbury is a clean, beautiful place. The staff at Canterbury is very friendly and were attentive to my moms needs. She needed rehab when she first arrived and the staff took great care of her and were very patient in assisting with her recovery. The care team was wonderful and kept us abreast of her situation regularly. We were comforted knowing she was in a safe, caring environment. Thank you for taking good care of my mom!

I recently helped my parents move in to Canterbury and found the facility, services and particularly the staff to be outstanding. Moving in during the Covid-19 pandemic was handled extremely well by all involved.The facility is very clean, up-to-date and well kept. My parents apartment looked brand new. Every resident that we spoke to had nothing but good things to say about the facility.Our interaction with Shannon Siburt, Director of Sales, who provided our initial tour, handling the lease, and managing the move-in has been outstanding. Shannon is always extremely helpful, knowledgeable and efficient.I highly recommend Canterbury-on-the-lake. It is an ideal retirement community and senior care facility.

My Mother moved into the Independent Living area a little over a year ago. I cannot say enough good things about Canterbury. They have gone out of their way to make her feel at home & keep her safe during this Covid Epidemic. I really appreciate the way they communicate what their plans are - even though some of the plans have changed over time because of extenuating circumstances. I feel Canterbury is doing all they can to keep their residents secure & well.I especially appreciate Jaimie Martin and Liz Vachon. They have helped me stay in face-to-face communication with my Mother and she and I are very glad we get to see one another occasionally, even if it is only through facetime. I also can see her and talk to her through her second story apartment window. i have and do recommend Canterbury to anyone who asks about a facility for a loved one to go to. I am so grateful that people I know and trust recommended Canterbury to us.My husband and I were going to look at several facilities for my Mother, but after meeting with Dorene Everts & talking to Linda Comps, a friend of mine, and seeing the facility, we were sold. When my Mother first saw Canterbury, she fell in love with it. She was excited about the beauty shop and the exercise classes.Thank you for running a first-class operation.Linda Fritts - daughter of Freda Hutson

I have been an employee of Canterbury for almost 24 years. The reason Ive stayed is because of the amazing amazing dedication that my coworkers provide. Some may say Of course you would say that, you work there. I have over the past few years have had my mother, father, and grandfather- in-law here. I could have taken them to one of the many places in the area, but I knew my family would get the best care at Canterbury.

Numerous friends have been residents of Canterbury On The Lake through the years. Two are currently there. Our church has also participated in some service events.When we have visited weve seen pleasant surroundings, cleanliness, good care of residents plus kind and conscientious staff. Good reports from the residents and their families have come to usHaving been a Pharmacist serving a Long Term Care Facility for 26 years, awareness of red flag pop ups can happen even with limited exposure. None have become evident here.We would be very happy to have any of our family members cared for at Canterbury, including help for us if that time comes.

My mother was not well when she moved in and after 4 years, she is happy, healthy and thriving. She absolutley loves it here. Her nursers are very attentive and all her needs are met. The communication is excellent and I feel included in all decisions that are made concerning her care.Due to covid, we have not been able to see our loved ones since March. In June, they set up a parade where we could drive by, in our decorated cars, and wave to our loved one. Quite honestly, I burst in to tears when I saw my mother!I will hopefully be moving my mother in law to Canterbury soon!

As a resident I love my apartment and one of my favorite things is the housekeeping services. You dont have to worry about cleaning it is just done for you! The food is excellent and we have so my options to choose from, which I didnt find at other communities when I was looking around. I also enjoy the open dining hours and different venues here as it gives me the flexibility to do other things and not always have to be committed to A meal at a certain time every day. Also, the activities here at Canterbury are wonderful and I always say if you are board it is your own fault! I really enjoy the outdoor activities like shuffle board and that I am able to walk year round here. I also enjoy that they plan overnight trips for us because I still get to enjoy some of the places I have always gone to over the years like the Young Americans Dinner Theatre in Petoskey. The staff is outstanding as well! They are all very caring and you can tell that they are happy here too. It is also great to see a younger generation who enjoys working and volunteering with seniors. They are all fun and they really brighten our days here at Canterbury! There are just so many wonderful things to say about Canterbury and the people who work here!

Canterbury on the Lake is a wonderful community to work for! I have been here since July and I absolutely love it. Staff members are always willing to help others out when they can. Management does many staff contests to boost morale. I love working for a company where customer service is the top priority.

Canterburys staff is the best that I have ever been around and it seems that they are here to make us all happy. They truly are the best and they all remember your name. This means a whole lot to all the residents here. The community is truly beautiful and you feel comfortable with so many people around I have made so many wonderful friends and this has been a wonderful benefit to living here at Canterbury. Canterbury also has great activities and even if you wanted to participate in them all you couldnt because there isnt enough time in the day. I truly love living at Canterbury-on-the-Lake.
