Louise B - I live or lived in this community
Current Resident of FCI

I am a resident of First Colonial Inn for 3 plus years. Am I content and satisfied with my decision to move to FCI? Yes! Yes! Yes! The fellow residents are friendly and helpful, willing to share memories, listen to your stories. The associates go beyond their duties, will cheer you up if it is a “down” day or try to help you see the “good” side of life. It is important that all the associates know your name. The dining room servers are polite, patient, considerate, often knowing your wants before you order.

Review of First Colonial Inn

More than 20 years ago my husband and I chose First Colonial Inn as our retirement home. Our decision came after investigating numerous communities in VA and NC. First Colonial Inn is nestled in a park-like setting with easy access to medical and shopping opportunities. Now that my husband is deceased the Inn is even more important to me. Affording me security, transportation, and a kind and caring staff. The apartment rental policy assures me that if health issues dictate, I can easily relocate near my family.

5 star review

We chose First Colonial Inn because of the location, affordability, the staff members were friendly, and they had a lot of activities to offer (before COVID). The apartment sizes here are adequate. I have eaten at the facility before and it was pretty good, they are chef prepared meals and have a menu with variety. if you do not want the meal of the day, you are able to order other hings. The best part about this community is the people, they are all very friendly. I would highly recommend.
