Our Tour Experience

They have normal assisted living rooms, and then about 5-6 rooms that meet the fire code for people who need help getting out when the fire alarm goes off. They didn't have one of those rooms available at the time that we needed it for our loved one. But they are right down the street from us, and definitely would have been a consideration. I thought it was very nice there.

Tour of First Colonial Inn

We toured First Colonial Inn and it looked a lot like a nursing home which we did not like. They were going to be very expensive and seemed like they nickle and dime you for everything.

Very good but small

We chose this facility due to the convenient location and the friendliness of everyone we came into contact with. They were really willing to work with my mom on her unique circumstances. The apartment sizes are small and the bathrooms are very small as well. The staff here have been wonderful and I would recommend to others looking.

Review of First Colonial Inn

We chose First Colonial Inn because we enjoyed this one the most out of the different ones that we toured. They have a variety of sizes of rooms here and you get what you pay for. I have eaten here a couple times with mom and the food was just fine. Overall, we have had a good experience and would recommend to others.

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.

To every staff member in every position: Thank you for your expert care of all the residents, especially [name removed]! I know you have worked hard during this difficult time. From a hello, to a smile, a touch, a few minutes to listen, you will probably never know how much it meant to that one resident. My prayer is for God’s love and strength to surround you with comfort and guide you to take one day at a time. God bless and keep you all!

A really big thank you to you and your staff for taking such good care of my Mom and all the other residents. It's a big relief knowing that all of you care for them like family everyday but especially during a crisis like we face now. Thank you for keeping the families up-to-date on what's going on. Mom and I talk daily and she tells me how you and your staff are taking the extra steps to keep the residents safe and entertained. Thank you so much for everything you are doing.

I want to express my appreciation and thanks to all of the staff for the services rendered to us residents during this unsettling time brought on by the pandemic. All of you have had extra work in controlling entrance to the facility, serving meals, delivering mail and performing temperature checks daily with friendly greetings and smiles. It is evident that you have been concerned with our welfare and safety and we should all be appreciative. KUDOS to all!

Review of First Colonial Inn

I moved my dad out of a retirement facility a half mile away into First Colonial Inn at age 93 and he loved it. He made some good friends there that were his last friends in his life as he died at 95. He really enjoyed living there and said the food was really good there. I highly recommend living there!

Thank you for ALL your extra care and work during this time. Nobody can possibly fully prepare and stay on top of this without weekly, daily, hourly and at times by the minute changes. It's INCREDIBLE the work you and all of your team is doing. I cannot begin to imagine the tired eyes and time away from your own families you are all enduring as the essential caring people you are. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! For the 3 or so years my dad has been there you have provided him with EVERY need while doing so with smiles. YOU have provided families with the full comfort knowing you care for our family members living there. You have helped them and us to smile that much more! I cannot THANK YOU each enough!!! You are simply the greatest most caring and giving group that I can imagine. I wish you all safety and health and I KNOW one H of a party when we can come there and take care of all of you in a few weeks or months. Thank you from the bottom and top of my heart.
