Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Boston, MA
Cadbury Commons in Cambridge, MA
4.5

Very good staff for the most part. It is a good environment with a lot of bright people. The community is quite clean and have housekeepers on each floor. The staff is very friendly and knew my name immediately. The activities are good and they offer good off-community trips and normal on-site games and such. The value is probably on par with others here at Cadbury Commons. The community is very well run.

Village at Proprietors Green in Marshfield, MA
5.0

The communication with the family is very good. If there are any mistakes the community takes responsibility. They have done a good job at making my loved one is comfortable, social with other residents, and feels at home. There are three meals a day served and there are choices for the residents to choose from. Some of the activities available are concerts, outdoor picnic dinners, games, exercises, and more for the residents to choose from. The maintenance team is responsive to requests made by the residents. There is a loud hum when the heat comes on in the apartments in the community. The community stated this is consistent across the board and they are aware of this noise.

Cornerstone at Canton
4.9

The staff at Cornerstone are so attentive, they know all of the residents by name and the families that come to visit. They are great about making sure nobody is stuck in their rooms and that everyone is engaging with each other whether that be in big groups or smaller groups. They are giving our love done all the care that she needs and we are pleased.
