“My Dad spent 3 weeks in the Pavilion and received excellent care! Dad came to Canterbury following a hospital stay that left him very weak. Thanks to the incredible physical therapy staff, they were successful with improving Dad’s strength and walking. That was 4 months ago, Dad just celebrated his 95th birthday and is doing well. Thank you, Canterbury, for your care and compassion! I highly recommend Canterbury.”
