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.

My loved one likes the food. We picked this community because of the high level of care that they provide, and receiving better care than the nursing home. It is a high end assisted living community. It was less expensive and affordable. It has been a great transition. They have been very accomodating, and communicative. I would recommend to other families.

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
