Everything was good, except food. The main problem that the administration thought a lot about design, caring about people, organizng good activities, but the food was bad. They need concetration on that.

I Visited This Community

O.K. The only bad thing about Cadbury is the setting on congested Sherman street. Once you get over the fact that there is NO parking, you will be thrilled with the community. It is run by a non profit board and the quality of care and activities are the best in the Boston area. The Morningside program is state of the art and highly recommended for folks in need of memory care. All in all, a great place with wonderful staff. Ideal for Harvard or M.I.T. alumni.
