I am a friend or relative of a resident
This community is located at 650 Concord Avenue in Cambridge, MA. From the moment we first spoke with the receptionist on the phone, we could tell this was going to a be a pleasant experience for my father. It was obvious from all that happened during the initial phone screening that the person on the other end was smiling and enjoying her day. She then set an appointment and we met with the Executive Director the next day.It was appealing to not have to meet with a marketing director, rather the opportunity to meet with the person in charge of the community presented itself. We had a facility tour, lunch, and spent time with other residents. Every second of the experience was enjoyable for us and we soon became friendly with the staff.It wasn't soon after this happened that we decided to move my father into this community, which he enjoyed tremendously. He goes to exercise each day, enjoys lunch with his friends, and has gotten back to the loving man that we all knew. There is no other place I could imagine him living at this time.He enjoys his long walks around Fresh Pond and his art classes led by the Resident Care Director in the art room. He even likes having all the college young adults coming to the community to volunteer in different aspects of his life. The computer classes he takes on site are superb and he is really enjoying himself once again. If you are looking for a place for your loved one, this is it!

I visited this facility
This facility is fairly new and quite nice. It's located about six miles outside of Boston, so convenient for family members and other visitors who live in the city. There is also a three-mile walk around a big pond on the premises"”a real plus for residents who can do it; management believes in exercise as therapy and is good at dealing with emotional health issues. The buildings inside are nice and the food is very good"”better than at most facilities"”family style dining with a number choices available daily. A full range of options is available here"”independent living, assisted living and memory care; also skilled nursing and short-term rehab services. The set-up groups residents according to their care needs"”with those housed on the third floor being the most severe. There are a lot of social programs for residents with varying interests and needs"”including art classes and other cultural events. There are also lots of activities offered onsite, such as music programs and spiritual discussions. Plenty of amenities are also available"”including a daily bedmaking service, personal laundry services and a pharmacy delivery service. A real forte of Neville Place is its memory care"”and many Harvard-affiliated Alzheimer's specialists come here, which is a big boon. Other caregivers are also good and attentive; the nursing station responds quickly to calls and there is a high ratio of staff to residents in general. Staff members seem willing and able to spend time with family members who want explanations of residents' care and conditions.
