Value for cost
Great tour. I went to two other communities and selected this one for my brother. He has since moved in and loves it!
The food was good. The residents seemed to be happy. The staff seemed to be friendly and caring. The dining room was clean, and if my loved one wasn't able to go to the dining room, the staff would check on my loved one and deliver the meal to her.
Everybody there has been awesome and super friendly. We have been able to try some of the meals and while our loved one is not a big fan we do think they are great. They do offer activities for the residents, and for everything that is offered we think that value for cost is good.

Hi Amanda, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this 5-star review!
The community is very nice, we have had such a positive experience so far, this has been a huge relief for our family. Our father absolutely loves the meals and dining services, and he has been able to participate in several activities. They have been very creative coming up with different activities after the pandemic. We do think the value for cost is very good.
We have been very pleased with The Cambridge, and their meals. Our loved ones are country cooks so sometimes the food is not up to their standards but overall its good and they can also cook for themselves if they would like. They have activities going on which is great, and we do feel the value for cost is reasonable for the area.
In budget, very independent but also lots of saftey features and has many care options. Super helpful staff, great location. Mostly everything included. Had a great feel and all amenities that grandma asked for.
During the pandemic the residents did have a lot more freedom then other communities. They could improve on the house keeping, sometimes when they go into the residents room they do not do the things they say, and the kitchen staff can be pretty rude.
I would highly recommend this community for your loved one. The community is very receptive. They were always available to answer any of my questions. The room was beautiful for my loved one. The food was good.
We would absolutely not recommend this community, they told us lies about our loved one. The community itself was clean, but the general manager was the one that caused our problems and trouble. The sales lady we spoke with in the beginning who gave us the contract was nice, but after that point we did not speak to her again.
The staff is helpful and friendly. They have been a huge help with my brother. One of my primary complaints is the food served. The quality has diminished in the last year and a half. Since the virus outbreak the meals have suffered. I have seen this for myself on video chats with my brother. This is my only complaint I have about the facility. Thank you for allowing me to voice my opinion.
The staff at Cambridge are the best. My dad loves them all, & I have found them to be friendly, helpful, and caring. I appreciate the extra care during these Covid times. I do wish Holiday would insist on regular testing of staff and residents. Considering the age group, testing needs to be a part of the procedures. I called Holiday and left a message, asking them to call about this, but I never received a call back. Otherwise, Cambridge is a great place and my dad feels at home there!
Good place to live. The employees are all pleasant and fair.
I have been a resident for almost 2 years, I am 80 years old, and am very glad I am here. I feel safe and comfortable.
[name removed] that works in marketing is a great, her personality is sweet and bubbly. [names removed] are great managers. [name removed] is just amazing activities director and [name removed] is wonderful front desk manager. Everyone really seems to have great time living here, plus they have gone above to keep all safe.
They keep an eye on my mom and let me know what is going on. The staff knows all the residents by name. The outdoor area in the front could use a little fixing up. I think it is a great place. They really care about the residents. The residents are friendly. It is a great retirement community atmosphere.
Nice facility. It is a little older than some of the other ones, but well kept. Staff were friendly. One drawback was that the bathrooms had tubs which they had cut out to make a walk through. I would like to see them replace these with true walk in showers. This would alleviate a potential tripping a fall hazard. Had lots of activities.
Love this place and, if they have a studio apartment available in March, I will definitely take it.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are looking forward to you joining our community. You can reach our community sales leader, Sarah, directly at [removed] with any questions you may have! We hope to see you soon!
A good tour. Little concered about the food choices. Ability to have a balcony he can smoke on it a plus.
Mom is staying here now and I live 4 hours away so the staff and I communicate well if it's needed. They are providing the daily essential needs and they are nice. Mom says the food is fine. The community is clean and I would recommend this place.
I toured the community The Cambridge. I felt like the person who gave the tour was very pushy with the deals they offered were for that day only. I did not feel comfortable not being able to sleep on the idea if it was a good fit for my loved one. Not the right fit based on the first impression.
