Keep reading to learn more about independent living at Canterbury Woods Gates Circle, a senior living community, including the price and world-class amenities.

What Is Independent Living?

Individuals enjoying an independent lifestyle in senior living communities enjoy convenient access to dining, beautification, entertainment, and more. They can still live independently while being able to obtain assistance when needed.

An independent living lifestyle offers a safe living environment with minimal assistance. Hospitality services, such as housekeeping, a meal plan, and laundry, are often included in the monthly fee.

And should you need more specialized medical care, many senior living communities provide access to a full continuum, including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation.

Downtown Buffalo sparkles and shines for the holidays

Downtown Buffalo sparkles and shines for the holidays

Buffalo is all decked out for the holiday season! Trees sparkle with lights; downtown buildings like One M&T Plaza and the Electric Tower glow red and green. Homes throughout the city gleam with charming holiday decorations, and Buffalonians young and old are enjoying holiday traditions.  The lighting of the massive tree on Dec. 3 at the Rotary Rink at Fountain Plaza marked the start of this Most Wonderful Time of the Year—and free skating season at the rink. This year’s 11th annual tree lighting featured speeches by local dignitaries, a dramatic countdown before thousands of lights were switched on, and a fireworks display. Afterwards, folks enjoyed visiting with Santa, taking horse and wagon rides and whirling around the ice rink. Skating at the rink is free through March 19, 2017.
