We Brought You Western New York’s First Continuing Care Retirement Community!

Canterbury Woods Williamsville and Gates Circle are nonprofit communities brought to life by the Episcopal Church Home and Affiliates. With a vision of empowering area seniors to live their best lives, our Williamsville community opened in 1999. It was Western New York’s first continuing care retirement community offering residents’ long-term well-being and health within a continuum of care services that includes independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care and rehabilitation.

Nearly two decades later, Canterbury Woods opened Gates Circle in downtown Buffalo. Like residents in our Williamsville community, Gates Circle residents enjoy an independent lifestyle, a comfortable, secure environment in an incredible setting, a friendly community of like-minded neighbors.

Life Care And Contract Options

No matter which community you choose, we offer a variety of contract options. Whether you are interested in Life Care contracts that assure financial predictability and peace of mind should your health needs change or are interested in new rental contracts on select Gates Circle apartments, we can help you discover what works best for you, your lifestyle – and your budget.
