I think one of the things that really sticks with me when I think about assisted living, is that it is really one of life's major decisions. I take this aspect very seriously, and it has driven how I approach the information on our site, and it has profoundly emphasized the responsibility that I, and we (Assisted Living Directory) have in terms of what information we provide, and how we provide it.
Part of that responsibility, for me, has always been to openly include and highlight other excellent, trustworthy sites that will help you with your research. For Cambridge, there are a number of great state/local sites and resources that will most certainly help you.
Great sources for information, help and support:
Primarily, I always recommend becoming familiar with your Local Area Agency on Aging - every town, city and area in the US has one, and they are under state/federal direction and oversight. For Cambridge, yours would be the Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES), which offers a plethora of senior services, support and programs. Additionally, we recommend stopping by the City of Cambridge Council on Aging for seniors centers information, and additional city-sponsored aging and senior services.
The assisted living facilities for Cambridge listed on this page may all be contacted directly, and safely! Intro by D. Besnette
