Recent reviews of Independent Living in Chelsea, MA
Youville Place in Lexington, MA
5.0

We couldn't be more grateful to have our mom in the loving and capable hands of the Youville community. The Memory Care Unit there is top-notch. To this day, given all the challenges with her Alzheimer's, we feel it is one of the best decisions that we have made. The place is clean, thoughtfully designed, and well managed. The staff is also excellent. They care for my mom's every need and keep her mind stimulated. We couldn't be more grateful for the Youville Courtyard and all they do each day to keep her happy and safe!

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.

Camellia Gardens in Maynard, MA
3.1

We chose Camellia Gardens because of the convenient location to me so I can visit often. The facility itself is so new and aesthetically pleasing. Because of how it is built, there is an enormous plaza in front of it and has everything she could need which is a super plus. They have a variety of apartment sizes depending on what you need. The activities are plentiful and displayed well enough for anyone to see. I would definitely recommend to others looking.
