Customer Reviews

Nice facility. It is a little older than some of the other ones, but well kept. Staff were friendly. One drawback was that the bathrooms had tubs which they had cut out to make a walk through. I would like to see them replace these with true walk in showers. This would alleviate a potential tripping a fall hazard. Had lots of activities.

Love this place and, if they have a studio apartment available in March, I will definitely take it.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are looking forward to you joining our community. You can reach our community sales leader, Sarah, directly at [removed] with any questions you may have! We hope to see you soon!

A good tour. Little concered about the food choices. Ability to have a balcony he can smoke on it a plus.

Mom is Happy

Mom is staying here now and I live 4 hours away so the staff and I communicate well if it's needed. They are providing the daily essential needs and they are nice. Mom says the food is fine. The community is clean and I would recommend this place.

Not a good impression

I toured the community The Cambridge. I felt like the person who gave the tour was very pushy with the deals they offered were for that day only. I did not feel comfortable not being able to sleep on the idea if it was a good fit for my loved one. Not the right fit based on the first impression.

Fabulous Community

This is a fabulous community, and I'am very pleased with my move here. Everything has worked out very well, and I'am satisfied with everything they have done for me. I have not met one staff member who isn't amazing. They are very kind, and have been very helpful whenever needed. They do a great job with the cleanliness around the community, everything always looks great. The meals are very good, and there are lovely activities, and outings available. This is a community I would recommend to anybody, it is a wonderful place to live.

Mom is starting to feel at home

My mom loves her 1 bedroom on the bottom floor, it has a nice patio that faces the garden area and she is starting to feel right at home. She is also starting to take part in a lot of the great activities and the field trips they offer as well. She also likes going to the dining room and the food. They have a Sunday church service and sing alongs that my mom likes to go to. Mom knew when we did our tour here that this was the one for her.

Has Given Mom A New Life

Moving mom here was the best thing we could have done for her. I feel so much more at peace knowing that she is in a safe environment with people around her and her life alert I don't have to worry about leaving her alone to go out of town. She loves living here it's been so good for her. She loves to interact with people and playing bingo and going to all the events they hold. They have people come in to do live music. Mom has gone to the onsite beautician and she really likes her she does a good job.
Mom said the food is ok could be better. But the staff they are wonderful so nice and happy. I couldn't ask for anything better.

Perfect Fit for My Friend

I feel this is the perfect fit for my friend, and her needs. She is doing well, and everything is working out great. This is a lovely community, and I'am pleased with all they have done for her. The community is well-kept, everything is nice, and well maintained. She is having a good experience since her move to this community, and I would recommend it.

Not A Good Experience

So far it has not been the best experience for myself in this community. I do not feel it is the right fit for me, and my needs. There are some improvements that need to be within this community. One of those being client relations, and also the staff needs to be more educated in what they are doing. I do not eat the meals, due to the fact the meals contain a lot of salt in them. They are not very responsive to my concerns. I will be considering a new community overall, and I would not recommend this community.

An ok tour

When I visited this community the residents I saw did not seem happy. I was not impressed with the visitor parking. The community seemed clean and the person I met on tour seemed nice.

Our Great care and home

We like this community. The staff is nice and caring. and we do like that they are caring. The community is always clean and we like the environment. They have excellent meals and a good variety. We wish that they were more flexible at the times for dining. They offer a lot of great activities for the residents who want to participate. We have recommended others to this community for the great care and value.

Things are good

The staff at The Cambridge is very friendly and helpful. They offer daily activities and the food is ok. The housekeeping does a good job of keeping the community clean. I would recommend this community.

Care at my new home

I like living in this community. The staff is caring and the community is very clean They offer a lot of great healthy meals from the good chef. They offer activities for the residents, I hope to participate soon. I would recommend others to see this community for the care of a loved one.

Turned Out to Be the Best

Mom is settling in and liking it and since she is able to keep her dog it's better. Staff has been nice to her and being super nice and willing to work with us on some things. I like knowing they are patient with her when she repeats things. The residents have been there for a long time. When one moves in they give you a life alert because after 8 pm doors are locked and no staff is available. The transport driver is very nice, she is extremely willing to get them to where they need to go.
Mom really likes that the community is christian based. The community has a home-site home care and they were helpful and friendly when speaking to them. They are very affordable and have discounts for residents.

Beautiful place to live!

This community is gorgeous. My mother lived here for a couple of months and during her stay, she was very comfortable. The reason we had to move her out was because they did not provide a lot of hands-on care, and my mother required more. But other than that this place was great.

Great care for a friend

This is a a great community. The staff is outstanding. The food great and variety of meals. She is loving being active. She teaches the art class to the others at this community. It does help her stay active and very busy. I like the care that she is getting here and would highly recommend the care here to other families.

Needs Improvement!

I wish there was a manager at night this really would make me feel more safe and secured. The housekeeping does a good job maintaining the community clean and my room. One thing that could make this place better would be for them to provide more variety of meals. At the moment i wouldn't recommend this place till some changes are made.

We are very satisfied with The Cambridge!

The community at The Cambridge is wonderful. Our loved ones have really enjoyed the variety of meals offered. The community is nicely kept and clean throughout. We were able to get a room on the first floor which my loved ones really wanted. The staff have been very helpful and friendly. The community offers a variety of activities for the residents to enjoy.

Wonderful Community!!

I feel that i'm in a safe place and in phenomenal hands. The staff has been providing great care for me. The meals are great i am enjoying them. The community is kept nice and tidy. At the moment i am not participating in activities but they are provided. I really hope they would add 24 hour care in the community.

My Family Was Very Impressed

I really like it here, everything is working out very well for me here. They do a very good job with keeping everything nice and clean. I'am extremely pleased with everything they have done for me. The staff have been very pleasant, they are helpful and kind. My family was very impressed with this community. The food is great, I'am very satisfied with the meals. This is a community I would recommend.

Tired of living alone!!! Just moved my 78 year old friend into the Cambridge

Very friendly! Lots of activities! Location near shopping and restaurants! Very good for a still healthy, independent person.

Health need warning

Very nice place, great food and activities. Excellent mangers. We placed our there, she was there for over a month but it wasn't working out. She became ill and was hospitalized for 3 weeks and her physician wrote orders for her to be placed in assisted living after the hospital staff determined her health had deteriorated during the hospital stay. We immediately placed her in an assisted living facility and paid $2400 for the first month. Due to a clause in the Cambridge contract, we are being made to also pay for the same month rent at Cambridge.
So before you place a parent there, we would advise you to take them to their physicians and have them see into the next 3 months future so you can be assured your parent won't get I'll and need more help for the first three months they reside at the Cambridge. This will avoid you having to pay the monthly rent for 2 facilities at the same time.
To us it seems impossible to foresee an unexpected health crisis in a parent of their age, but we signed the contract and the Cambridge adminstration holds you to it. We were hoping there might be some consideration of the medical situation due to there being signed physicians order for more care than the Cambridge can provide.
What happed to striving to take the best care of the elderly and not taking advantage of their health declines?
Just trying to save other families and caregivers from a bad financial situation.

Thank you for your feedback.

Senior health is indeed hard to predict, which is why our communities apply simple, straightforward policies, and why we are open and honest about our fees and policies.

Refunds and case-by-case treatment of every move in and move out takes time and costs money, resources we prefer to invest in the cleanliness of our senior living communities, in creating active social calendars and hiring friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Again, thank you for your feedback, and here is hoping that your mother's new living situation meets her needs.

Mother's new home

My mother moved here fairly recently. She likes it and already feels at home. She enjoys the meals. The food is well prepared, not too salty, but a bit heavy on corn and mashed potatoes. A little more green vegetables and leafy greens in the salads would be a welcome addition. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's obvious they care about the residents. There are plenty of activities for those who enjoy them. The apartments are clean and spacious. I feel my mother is secure and well taken care of, and is able to be as independent as she can be. I'm very glad she is happy and comfortable, and look forward to more time to spend time with her in her new home.

All staff are very friendly and helpful and happy with their jobs. They truly seem interested in the people living at the Cambridge. It's a smaller community than most which allows for more staff contact and easier for the tenants to move around without having to go great distances. I am very pleased that my mom and dad are living at the Cambridge.

Very nice place!

We're very pleased with how things have turned out with The Cambridge, I'd give them top marks across the board! The staff here is friendly and professional, and whenever we've needed any help with anything they've been there for us. It's a very nice place, and they take great care of the residents!

My parents love The Cambridge

My parents love The Cambridge. I know they really like the food. They also really like the size of the one room apartment that they have. Everything has been really good. The staff members have been great. It has been a very smooth transition for them. Overall thing have been really good at this facility,

just amazing!

The two managers, Paul and Colleen (a great husband and wife team), are just amazing! My dad has been very happy since going there. The staff is amazing, and the facility is amazing.

It was a hard time on my dad as my mother had just recently passed away, but they have been incredibly helpful. I cannot possibly recommend them enough!

Friendly and Professional

We think of The Cambridge place quite highly. The staff is friendly and professional. Some of the residents are not very friendly. There is probably not a lot the staff can do about that. There are some really rude residents that are rude to others. In general, the facility is great. My mother is still new and getting use to it. Everything she needs is there. It's just a matter of her taking advantage of it. We think of the place in good terms.

Well run community

This just seems to be a very nice, well run community overall. The facility is well kept and clean, and the staff all seem very friendly. They even do a good job with the food here, which is a very nice change from other communities we have had experience with.

very satisfied!

We have been incredibly happy with The Cambridge. My mother in law loves the meals. She has tended at times to stay up all night and get her days and nights mixed up, but she loves the breakfast so much that she makes sure to get up for it.

The cleaning services are excellent as well. The facility as well as moms room are always very clean.

We are just very satisfied with The Cambridge and would highly recommend!

I give them an A, they have done a great job.

I give them an A, they have done a great job. They have been very helpful they have treated him well. It's clean and everyone is friendly. Anything he has needed they have done it right away, and they keep us informed. We are very pleased with them.

Dad likes it there

Dad was welcomed and has started to meet those with similar interests. The dining room food is very good and everything is located where he can easily attended activities. Parking is not great for visitors but he likes it there so it's not a major problem.

I love them! I think they are doing an excellent job.

I love them! I think they are doing an excellent job. She is very happy there. It's clean, and the staff is friendly. They take good care of the residents. I can't really think of any thing I want to see done better. They really are doing a very good job.

The Cambridge is wonderful.

The Cambridge is wonderful. We want to move there ourselves. She liked it there. She liked the people and the staff. There is a home health agency onsite to help with extra care needs. The staff here bent over backwards to try to help her. There is just a real community feel to it. Everybody, and I mean everybody says hello and speaks to you, when you walk by. They have really fostered a wonderful atmosphere.

Nice place, overall!

For the most part they do a good job at The Cambridge. It's a very clean, nice looking community, and the staff are all very friendly and helpful.I do think they could do a bit better when it comes to activities and encouraging the residents to participate. I'd also like to see them have a few more activities geared towards the male residents.
But overall it has been a good experience, and we're happy we chose them!

I only helped friends find a faculty,...

I only helped friends find a faculty, but really liked The Cambridge. The people were very, very nice, and David was very good. The person there is happy being there.

The perfect place for my great uncle

I was looking for a place for my great uncle to have a little more security but still be on his own. The Cambridge was the first facility I took him to visit. From the moment we walked into the door we were greated by staff and residents. Everyone was extremely nice and ready to strike up a conversation. My great uncle being the talker he is was delighted. Although with his dementia he thinks he already knows everyone from his past, he is ready to talk their ears off. No other place can compare to a real loving and caring community like this. By the time we left from the visit he wanted to come back and live. The days leading up to him moving in all he wanted was to move in right away so he could visit his buddies. The staff was great and still are as helpful as when we were just looking. I even joked it was so great I would move in (although I don't meet the age requirement).

good food

My dad says the food is good, but I haven’t had a chance to try it myself. The parking is really very limited, so that’s been a concern. There are nice outside areas for residents to enjoy. The community is clean and we’re happy with the services offered.

Really nice but pricey

The people are wonderful! The place is beautiful and the meals are excellent with plenty of choices. The apartments are small but large enough for one and have full kitchens which aren't really necessary... they could be downgraded to kitchenettes and give more living space.

My only regret is they don't have quit enough care services for my mother to qualify for VA Widows pension, which would have made it within her price range.

The apartment and weekly cleaning are worth $750. But the rest of the amenities including meals are not worth $1200.

I like it real well.

I like it real well. I'm completely happy here, I would reccommond it others. Everything in general is really good. They had a lot more amenities that others did. As far as my needs are concerned, they take really good care of me.

Very nice place but I am no...

Very nice place but I am not sure that mom can afford it.
