A real find!

Mom has lived at Cambridge for a couple of years now, so I feel we know Cambridge living. The staff is exceptional; they are very pleasant and responsive, from the front desk to top management. The facility is spotless clean. Dining is pleasant with choices that change regularly and the chef and staff try to accommodate the residents. There are daily activities to participate in. When mom first moved there they introduced her to a few women, with whom she bonded with. Cambridge is a special place to live in your later years.

Some good, some bad.

Constant turnover of staff over the years has diminished the quality of Cambridge. I’m willing to understand that COVID put a strain on the staff, and I commend them for not having a major outbreak. Unfortunately as with many thing’s , there seems to be confusion among staff as to protocol etc. residents pay a lot of money and the level of service should represent that.

Cambridge-My Home

I have lived here at Cambridge Village OF Wilmington for almost 2 years. When my husband passed away in [date removed] while living in Florida, I decided to move to North Carolina to be near my daughter and her family. We looked at 4 different independent living communities Cambridge came out on top. One-bedroom unit was certainly large enough for my dog and me with a convenient back door opening to the parking lot. Activities such as bingo and po-ke-no are enough to keep me busy. Being a very fussy eater I can still find something good to eat off the menu. There are lots of friendly residents.

My recent visit at Cambridge with Pierrette

I was very impressed with my overall experience at Cambridge. What is included in the monthly rent is amazing. I can get more at Cambridge without a buyin than I can get here in Mechanicsville, VA with a hefty buyin. The number of activities is amazing. One can really keep busy. The facility is beautiful and inviting and very well kept. I look forward to another visit and hopefully in due time make my home there.

Very nice facility, tons of amenities. Costs appear in line until you start breaking everything down and then you find hidden costs that quickly skyrocket if you need any assistance at all. If your 100% healthy then this is the place to be.

Food Service is Lousy and Getting Worse

I have a relative living at Cambridge Village in Wilmington. Several months ago, I wrote about the problems with the food service there. I wrote about the poor planning which resulted in the kitchen continually running out of common items including staples. I wrote about how the food was too often delivered to the tables cold. I wrote about the mediocre food quality and about the lack of healthy options. Then I bit my tongue. I felt I said my piece and that would be it. But things have not improved and today they hit a new low when, as the lunch "special," they served bologna sandwiches! Really? You are charging residents $400 per month for food and you serve up bologna sandwiches as the special. This has become an ethical issue. Cambridge Village's food service is terrible and they are about to raise rents 3%. So, here's my plan: I eat there with my relative periodically, and I'm going to write about my experiences there -- probably not each time, but frequently enough -- until there is significant improvement. I'll point out the good and the bad, but frankly, at present, there needs to be a lot of improvement. Here is one other thing that concerns me that I want to mention: Cambridge Village runs contests with prizes to incentivize its residents to vote for it in competitions for "Best Independent Living Facility" and similar competitions held by local community publications and the like. Not only is that not appropriate, but it makes me question the authenticity of many of the reviews on this and other sites. If I sound frustrated, it's because I am. It costs a great deal of money to live there, and residents have a right to expect better. One more thing: I suspect a Cambridge Village staff person will respond to this review. Great! Please specifically address the rational behind the bologna sandwich specials and the ethical considerations about incentivizing residents to vote for your facility as the "best." Thanks.

December 13, 2018

Tina, Thanks for your candid review. We’re very sorry to hear that you had anything less than a perfect experience with Cambridge Village. It sounds like we could be clearer with some details for you. We did indeed serve a fried bologna sandwich with choice of side as a specials for lunch on 12/6/18! It was a great hit and our residents we very appreciative that we responded to their meal request! This special was offered are in addition to our expansive menu. The cost of this southern favorite was $6 with a choice of side. Bologna, like other lunch specials such as liver and onions, hot dogs, sloppy joes and Philly teak sandwiches are specials requested by our residents. We provide our residents with several outlets for feedback and suggestions and then, respond to their feedback. This is what makes Cambridge Village of Wilmington the BEST! We welcome all resident and guest feedback and will constantly strive to provide an OPTIMAL environment. In response to the question on ethics, we assure you and everyone that reads this that we do not “run contests with prizes to incentivize its residents to vote for it in competitions.” We inform our residents, employees and business partners of local and regional award opportunities and encourage them to vote their conscious. We were indeed voted best Independent Living Community in Wilmington by Star News ShorePicks and Senior Guide for the past two years! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to brag on our customer service and recent recognition as being the BEST! We welcome your future visits. Please stop by and see our Executive Director in person to discuss any future concerns. Thank you, Nicole

Mom is Happy and So are Her Children

Hi, We are very happy with Cambridge Village of Wilmington as is our mom. The facility is great as are the people who work there. Mom has acclimated very quickly and is busy with many of their activities. The only issue (obviously not their fault) is that they were hit quite hard by the hurricane and are doing everything they can to remediate as quickly as they can. Mom has just been moved to another apartment there while they fix hers. Her apartment had significant water damage even though she is on the third floor. The first floor was damaged quite badly and is still being repaired to my knowledge. Thanks for your help and the inquiry.

A lot of positives but there are major issues with the meal service.

I have a close relative at Cambridge Village. There is a lot to like about this place. The staff is terrific and the programming is quite good. However, there are major problems with their food service and that's what I want to address today. (And this is why I gave it only 1.5 stars for care services.) The problems seem to fall into the following categories: 1) They are constantly running out of food items that are on the menu. This is a significant source of frustration for residents. 2) They offer almost no flexibility. If you want to substitute carrots for the sweet potato that comes with your chicken, you are likely to be told that they cannot make the substitution. 3) The quality of the food is very uneven. Sometimes good and sometimes poor. 4) There are few healthy choices available. I'm really surprised and disappointed at how inattentive management is to the problems in the restaurant. Most other aspects of Cambridge Village are quite positive, but the food service has major issues.

Tina, We appreciate your kinds words about our staff and programming! In regards to our restaurant, we do allow any resident to substitute any side item with their meal. There may be a small upcharge for doing so based on the entrée that is selected. We do have a "healthy options" menu that is located on the first page. We have tried to implement more optimal side dishes over the course of our first three years. We appreciate all customer feedback, and we invite you to call our marketing office if you have any specific questions for our staff. Thank you!

Cambridge encourages living one's life to the fullest

From the moment [name removed] walked through the doors of Cambridge Village she was embraced by compassion, love and professionalism. A vibrant retirement community catering to one's social, cognitive, spiritual, health and physical needs it immediately felt like home. Whatever one's interests, they can surely be met with lots of enthusiasm by both staff and residents. Strolling through the halls one may hear live music emanating from the pub along with laughter and voices actively engaging in conversation. Or maybe a competitive spirt is being tested in a game of shuffleboard. Relaxation may call for a movie in the theater or a walk to the wellness center to work out. The new MedSpa provides services to promote anti aging through massages, facials and many components of beauty care. Life is never dull for special events fill the calendar regularly with classes engaging its participants in new skills or revisiting ones enjoyed previously like painting, writing, card games, book clubs and the list continues. For those who want to spread their wings and leave the cocoon of Cambridge there are trips to local attractions, exploration of other areas of NC, the Opera, Symphony, plays, etc. The point is Cambridge Village's family prides itself on catering to the individual's needs and they are successfully achieving that goal. Happiness fills the air while positive energy abounds. Overall, Cambridge encourages living one's life to the fullest and our family can't say enough wonderful things about the staff, residents, facilities and environment. Thank you to all for making this a special place for our mother.
