The community did everything for my loved one and took good care of them. You couldn't find a better place for memory care residents. The entire community is for memory care only. The staff are really good at working with the residents.

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.

Halcyon House in Methuen, MA
4.0

This community was very nice we had chosen it because it felt a little homier than others we had looked at. The staff is very nice and caring and we have good communication with them. In fact, it was them that brought it to our attention that mom was going to need hospice and they were going to take care of that for us. Mom is completely wheelchair bound now to the point where they need to deliver her meals to her room. The price wasn't any more expensive than others we looked at. My brother and I feel very confident in the choice we made and we know that she is receiving the best care she can get being there.
