The community did everything for my loved one and took good care of them. You couldn't find a better place for memory care residents. The entire community is for memory care only. The staff are really good at working with the residents.

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.

My loved one is happy with the activities that the community offers. They have activities like church, cards, movie night, general get together and special activities like music outside with family. Overall I like this community, I am just concerned with the cost and some things seem a bit excessive.
