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.

Cornerstone at Canton
5.0

The Compass neighborhood at Cornerstone of Canton has been a blessing for my mom and my family. She was very reluctant to leave her home, but she finally did and has found a whole new life at Cornerstone and absolutely loves it there. Can't say enough about how wonderful it is, the activities, the meals, the special events are great. The residents really love them and I love seeing my mom so engaged in all the activities. The staff is wonderful to say the least, friendly, helpful and loved by my mom which is very important to me and my siblings. Shout out to [name removed]! She is always so patient and kind and helpful whenever I reach out to her with questions or concerns. I am so happy we chose Cornerstone for my mom, she is so happy here!!!
