Don't Hesitate to Come Here

I am happy here. Everyone is very friendly. The food is good and the community is clean. The staff go out of their way to help the residents.

OK but not Great

This is a very good place for someone who can live independently. The rooms are pleasant and the food is good, not excellent. However, assisted living services leave much to be desired. People wait for half an hour frequently when they ring their call buttons. The medication assistance / administration is quite spotty. People frequently get their medicines at the wrong times or miss doses entirely. There is little consistency in when people are put to bed or helped in the morning. Many residents have private aids to give assisted living services instead of relying on the overworked Cadbury staff. The cost of private aids is born by the residents, in addition the Cadbury room and board fees. The activities are varied and amusing for many of the residents. Many people never participate in any of the activities. The staff is very friendly. The ability understand English varies. Cadbury is quick to send people to the hospital when they seem to be ill or fall and hit their heads. This is probably one of the better features. The cleaning services in the rooms is weekly and irregular. It is not clear how often they mean to change the beds. Certainly it is not every week. For residents who only get two showers a week with the assisted living services, this is not enough. When the cleaning person took a vacation, no one cleaned the room that week. Laundry services are varied. They do not separate lights and darks. They do not hang shirts up. Laundry is done mysteriously in the middle of the night. Sometimes the entire bag of laundry disappears. They do not wash the towels and wash cloths unless someone has the insight to put them in the laundry bag. Some rooms are very hot and some rooms are very cool. Individual Air conditions are recommended in the winter for very hot rooms. The summer air conditioning was quite effective. But there is a heating season and an air conditioning season.

Would recommend this community

Our experience with this community was good, overall it is kept pretty clean. The care services are pretty reliable, the activities were however a little bit weaker. The food at this community was very good, and we really liked the responsiveness of the staff and the availability the memory care unit had
