After 14 enjoyable years as a volunteer Ombudsman, being an advocate for the residents of Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities in the Alliance area, I found myself needing my own placement . I CHOSE CANTERBURY-VILLA!! I was impressed with the "Full of Life" activities provide by Deanna and her staff. The enthusiasm, optimism, and love of fun show in everything they do. I've observed even the non-verbal and non ambulatory residents respond in their own way. How heartwarming! I've also noticed a professional but kind and warm empathy of the staff for the residents. I believe this empathetic attitude in all departments come down from the top and it shows that the residents truly benefit. I am contented to be here.


We are so grateful for your loving care of our Mom! She is very happy living here and really appreciates the family environment and so many fun activities to enjoy! Everyone here from the maid to the management is SUPER! Thank you SO much for all you do EVERY day! May God Bless you all!

I’ve lived at Canterbury-Villa since November of 2016. This is not the first nursing home that I’ve lived in; but I can tell you it’s the BEST nursing home I’ve lived in.

The people who run this building are good people and try their very best to make it a nice place to live. It is a clean place to live and the food is really really good.

There is always something going on at Canterbury-Villa. From musical activities to games to fun trips. I purchased a popcorn machine for the facility. We love the days we have popcorn.

The outside is clean and they take a lot of pride in the building, with beautiful flowers where you can go and sit when the weather is nice.

Everyone at Canterbury-Villa treats us with respect and makes us know that this is our home. I am very happy here. I know that the people here care about me. If you get a chance, stop by and see the place for yourself. The atmosphere is a happy one. You won’t be disappointed.


Everyone here is so kind and helpful. I appreciate it very much. I would recommend this facility to anyone. Therapy is wonderful too. Thank you!


Dear Canterbury Staff,
After more than two months of stress and frustration over my sister's care(more accurately lack of care) at another facility in town, our family felt an immediate sense of peace when Joyce was transferred to Canterbury-Villa.
The Canterbury staff is friendly, professional, and immediately on top of any issues that arise. Every dept. goes above and beyond to meet all of Joyce's specific needs and to include and inform our family of any decisions which need to be made.
Visitors are always greeted with a smile and a friendly welcome. It is plain to see why you have earned such an outstanding rating. What an asset to the Alliance Community!!!
Thank you to the wonderful communication at Canterbury, we felt empowered as a family to be actively involved in all decisions regarding Joyce's care.
Thank you for what you have done and all you continue to do to better the lives of your residents and the peace and confidence you provide their families.
God Bless you all.


Our father, Thomas, was in your facility recently for rehab. Thomas was at Canterbury Villa for just a short time before his life expired. As a family, we could not have been happier with the care he received while in your facility. The care and compassion we felt from the nursing and caregiving staff made us feel at ease to leave him in your hands. Thank you so much for all that you did for him and us. We are so glad we chose you.

Canterbury is one of the best places in the area. The clean and nurturing staff is incredible. Caregiving staff is caring and nice. Very efficient. Activities keep us moving and always positive vibes coming from them. Housekeeping is excellent and pleasant every day. The place has grown to be a happy place. I am happy here.

Canterbury Villa of Alliance staff has been beyond my expectations! Placing Mom was one of the hardest things we had to do 2 years ago. Social services have always had patience with Mom when she did not understand things and would take the time to sit and explain it. The hard-working Aides and Nursing staff still have time to show love and compassion daily to the residents they are caring for. A really big applause to the Activities Department- they bring so much love and activities to Canterbury Villa. The activities group makes the residents know their worth. All the planning for the events and all the decorations they do to bring that home-like feel. Then there is my mom's nurse- he is just outstanding! The entire team always gets involved in the facility, such teamwork! I would recommend Canterbury Villa of Alliance- it gives you ease in your choice.

I have had a wonderful experience here at Canterbury Villa and I am sad to have to leave. I have had great staff looking after me while I have been here. I had so much fun in Activities and my favorite thing was the current events discussions. The Activity Department staff are very kind. I enjoyed my time in therapy they did a fantastic job. I am glad I was here and I made some friends too. Thank you for all you did for me.

I love it here, my family can visit me anytime. I love to play Bingo and do the activities. Visiting my friends and the nursing staff are some of my favorite things I like here.

Janice S.

I am grateful to live in such a nice place and to have such a wonderful roommate. Some of my favorite things here are being able to go to church and the activities that keep me busy. I have made lots of friends here too.

I would highly recommend Canterbury Villa; they have excellent therapy. The Nurses and Aides are supportive and kind. The Administrator went the extra mile to help me with several things. The staff offers encouragement to help in your recovery. It makes you feel like you have a cheering section to get you going. They also have a good activities program; people can stay as busy as they want. Canterbury Villa is the best in Alliance.

The facility is convenient, easily accessible, clean, and well-maintained. But even more than that, management and staff are superior. They are kind, gentle, and sincere! The level of care and compassion served to the guests here at this facility is excellent. It is present and evident from the moment you meet with the marketing director, then enter the building and be greeted by the nurses, aides, and staff. The staff are kind, caring, compassionate, and competent. I will recommend your facility to anyone needing rehab nursing care.
