Seniors socializing together in an apartment

The Benefits of Living in a Newly Constructed Senior Living Apartment

Building a home from the foundation up is a big job — one that many seniors will gladly forgo in favor of enjoying their retirement years without the headaches and stress. However, a community investing in senior living renovations could give you the best of both worlds: a brand-new home without the responsibility of supervising a construction crew.

Canterbury Court, Atlanta’s original Life Plan Community located in the heart of bustling Buckhead, is now underway with a campus enhancement that encompasses new senior living apartments including independent living, memory care and assisted living residences, as well as numerous community upgrades.

Spacious Senior Living Floor Plans

A highlight of Canterbury’s enhancement project is the addition of 105 one-, two- and three-bedroom independent living apartments. These senior living floor plans offer contemporary open concept living spaces with ample square footage for comfortable living. The one- and two-bedroom senior apartments include den space that can be adapted to your personal interests, while screened-in balconies offer even more livable space.

Advanced Features Come Standard

In contrast to more dated properties, new construction tends to incorporate the latest convenience and comfort features, and Canterbury’s expansion is no exception. The senior living renovation will incorporate numerous state-of-the-art elements, including fully equipped kitchens, individually controlled heating and air conditioning systems, basic cable, high-speed internet, and a washer and dryer in every residence, as well as a new 24-hour emergency call system.

A Place to Make Your Mark

While many senior living communities offer residents the option to personalize their residences, that’s not quite the same as selecting original finishes throughout. The first residents to enjoy Canterbury’s senior living renovations will be able to fully personalize their apartment and put their own touches on the interior design when they confirm plans to join the community by April 30, 2022.

Improvements Beyond Your Front Door

In addition to its newly built apartments, Canterbury’s enhancement includes upgrades and expansions to several of the community’s services and life-enriching amenities. The community’s expansive common spaces — which include a nature sanctuary and personal garden plots — will receive updates, along with a refresh of the dining venues, and expanded fitness and wellness spaces. In addition, the on-site health center and assisted living common area are scheduled for expansion and renovation, and residents with personal vehicles will appreciate expanded below-building parking.

Why an Expansion Is Even Better Yet

While some perks apply regardless of a community’s history, there are distinct benefits to taking advantage of senior living renovations within an established community. When construction is completed under the watchful eye of a community with a long-standing reputation, you can be confident the results will meet those well-established, discerning standards. What’s more, years spent perfecting tried and true programs and operations mean your home may look brand new, but it comes with a quality of living only years of practice can deliver.
