    The Cambridge wasn't good enough for my mother because she needs more care than they offer. We would have had to hire outside help to spend the night with her, but that would be very expensive. They do try to take people who are non-ambulatory, but they prefer people who are ambulatory; you have to be able to go out for a fire drill. Nevertheless, they had studio and one-bedroom units with small kitchenettes with a refrigerator, stove, and microwave. In the one-bedroom, there's a separate bedroom with a large closet, and there's a handicapped bathing facility right in the bathroom. Everything was right there; it was very nice. The food looked absolutely wonderful. They served breakfast, lunch, and dinner and had a lot of activities. They also had a bus that took them to different places for shopping and shows. They had an activity staff who does different activities, like painting and cards. If I was to move there right now, I think I would be very happy.

    We've put my mother in The Cambridge and she is doing excellent there. Everybody from the staff to the residents were just wonderful. The cleanliness and maintenance are excellent. They have central air and central heating in the unit. It's one of the few in Springfield that has the central air and central heat with a thermostat. The location is excellent. It's close to everything and they provide shuttles, but it's also close to bus lines. It's across the street from grocery stores, eye service centers, fast food, and anything the residents could want. The staff is excellent.

    The Cambridge is fantastic. For the affordability and everything it offers, it’s the best in Springfield. The rooms are very clean. They have a cleaning staff that comes in weekly. They have just about everything that you’d want. Mom likes to do puzzles. They have a place for church, an activities room, an exercise room, and a salon. All of the meals that I’ve had with my mother there have been really good.

    We visited The Cambridge. It and the people were very nice. We were able to see a one-bedroom, but we’re really interested in a two-bedroom, and they didn’t have any available. They didn’t have a pool, but they did have a small library and a pool table, which is something I appreciate. We had lunch there, and it was very nice. They had a garden that you can go out to, activities, exercise, and some games.
