Greystone Farm at Salem
4.2

When I first approached my dad with the idea of assisted living, he was more open to it than I expected. Greystone Farm gave us the tour, and they spent a lot of time explaining things. At the end, he said "Yeah, I can see myself living here." Which completely surprised me. From the day he moved in until today, almost every day he tells me how much he likes it there, or how great this or that person is. I've been very happy with them and don't feel guilty about leaving him him here. He is so much better off. He's not alone, and he is very well taken care of. He really likes the aides and especially the nurses. His only complaints have been small and center around the food. He tells me they give him too much food. And then with Covid when food is delivered to his room, his CocaCola comes as a can of generic version, whereas in the dining room, it's true fountain CocaCola. But we can easily work around those things! Other than that, he is very happy there. It has been the prefect solution for him. People are in and out checking on him all day, but he doesn't feel like he's being watched. He has his own apartment, so when people come in, it's like a mini visit, and then they go. It has been wonderful for me being close by to Dod so I can do the same, drop in for a moment as often as I want or need to. I think it's very expensive, but he's getting all of these services that are so beneficial. And his happiness and wellbeing is the most important thing to me. He doesn't do a lot of the activities, but he really enjoys when they bring in different musicians - pianists violinists, etc. It has been a really great move for him and everyone in our family.

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.

Overall I like this community, I am just concerned with the cost and some things seem a bit excessive.
