About Our Community

This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Canterbury Ridge - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities - has shared since 1999, when our community first opened its doors. It's a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful - a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retirees who have chosen our senior living community for its active lifestyle.

The Perfect Location

Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a lovely garden and beautiful walkways, Emeritus at Canterbury Ridge is one of the premier senior living communities in the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois area. Located one block north of Windsor Rd. and one block east of Philo Rd. Canterbury Ridge is located in a residential area near Busey Bank, Meijer, Wal-Mart, Monicals and Kennedy's, as well as Stone Creek Golf Course and Meadowbrook Park. We are also only minutes away from Interstate 74, which leads to Market Place Mall and downtown Champaign.

Carle Hospital and Provena Hospital both are less than 8 miles away, and regardless of your hospital affiliation, we have both Carle Clinic and Christie Clinic within blocks of our community. Our bus is scheduled to take residents to doctor appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays for their convenience.

If you enjoy walking and scenic views, Meadowbrook Park features hard and soft surface trails, farmstead, tall grass prairie, and the Timpone Ornamental Tree Grove located right off of Windsor Road.
