Stories from The Cambridge Homes Residents

Our mother is safe and comfortable


“Our mother moved into The Cambridge Homes over 13 years ago and hasn’t regretted it for a single day. After a stroke, she needed to find an assisted living facility that provided safety as well as independence. Initially drawn to the elegance of the building and TCH’s reputation for caring for their residents with dignity and respect, she soon discovered a thriving community, activities, and new friendships as well.

The experienced staff has navigated the Covid crisis and every other challenge with resilience, efficiency, and most importantly— compassion for the residents and their families. Our mother is safe and comfortable in her home, surrounded by people who know and care for her so well—we highly recommend The Cambridge Homes to other families! “

– Carol J, Daughter of Resident

“It has been home”


“My uncle Max stayed for five weeks at The Cambridge Homes in late July through early September, while he was waiting for his new assisted living place to open. At the end of his five weeks there, Max turned to me and said simply, “I’ll miss it here. It has been home.” For him, this is absolute gushing. He just felt safe and cared for, and from his first days there, something about the place said home. He also feels great trust in all your staff. “It’s well run,” he said, when we had a long talk this past weekend. He remembers Linda Powell with admiration and trust.

I felt great trust too–upon first meeting you, in fact. I see the difference even more, now that I have experience with this other place. I would love to move him back to The Cambridge Homes where he would be happy instead of stoical, and feel well taken-care-of again.”
