Canterbury Court is a Life Plan Community, often referred to as a continuing care retirement community, sponsored by All Saints’ and St. Luke’s Episcopal Churches of Atlanta, Georgia. In 1960, the two churches formed a nonprofit corporation called Canterbury Court, governed by a local volunteer board appointed by the sponsoring churches.
A Life Plan Community is an organization established to provide a quality residential environment in which older adults may live actively and independently, secure in the knowledge that support and services, including a continuum of care, are available if their needs should change. The continuum of care at Canterbury Court includes catered living, (similar to assisted living) and the Pavilion skilled nursing. Life Plan Communities provide independent living residences along with common areas, amenities, programs and services for those of retirement age.
Canterbury Court offers 188 apartments for independent living, in a range of sizes and floor plans, as well as 18 apartments for catered living and 44 nursing rooms for rehabilitation, nursing and long-term care. 105 new independent living residences are also being added, with scheduled completion in Fall 2023.
Canterbury Court has a stunning garden, an attractive reception area and lounge, library, chapel, outdoor terraces, card room, sundries store, multiple dining venues, private dining room, multiple meeting rooms and lounges, woodworking shop, arts and crafts studio, business center, billiards room, theater, and wellness center with an in-house clinic, exercise areas, and indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool. Canterbury Court’s landscaped grounds and gardens cover more than eight acres and offer paved walking trails, a gazebo, greenhouse, and protected natural habitats certified by the Atlanta Audubon Society and National Wildlife Federation. Individual garden plots are available on request.
