    About My Business
    Canterbury Gardens, part of the Koelsch Senior Communities, and family-owned since 1958, is passionate about caring for our aging population. Strategically located in a quiet neighborhood in the area of Vancouver, Washington. This city, the oldest in the state, is steeped in history and its location on the Columbia River offers a range of activities and beautiful settings.

    Canterbury Gardens is well-appointed to serve the specific needs of those experiencing Alzheimer’s, Dementia and other forms of memory loss. Whether your loved one is just in the beginning stages of this transition or needing more one-on-one interaction, our community is the perfect alternative to a skilled nursing environment. Trained professional staff and licensed nurses are onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet the specific needs of each person and are committed to bringing dignity, respect and the highest standards of service to all of our ‘family members’. Our team is specially trained with our Personal Touch program?, making each resident encounter a personal one. Whether for a short respite stay or for a lifetime, our family will take care of your family.

    Besides excellent care, we offer dynamic activities including cognitive and physical exercise musical events, pet visits, spiritual opportunities, picnics and other outings to encourage a vibrant lifestyle for each individual.

    Canterbury Gardens understands the challenges of families who are caring for loved ones with memory loss and hosts in-house forums for Caregivers, with The Hope Support Group, as well as the Refocus Cafe.

    Come join us this weekend for our weekly entertainment or participate with your loved one in our dedicated family events each quarter! Come join the family today!
