Standish Village in Boston, MA
4.0

The facility is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and they communicate very well. However, they could improve on their orientation schedule for those who have mild dementia. Not for the memory care unit, but for regular assisted living.

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.

I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The overall care and concern for the residents stand out to me. My loved one likes the food and looks forward to the desserts. They have concerts, singing, exercise, classes, arts and crafts, games, and more for the residents to choose from.
