Certainly would recommend

Thirwood Place is very nice, and the staff members are all quite friendly. Compared to the previous community I was at the food here would be a 10, its still not that home cooked food but overall pretty good. They do have some activities, but I wish they had more meet and greet stuff so I could get to know the other residents more. They do have painting and wine nights which is helpful. I have a lovely two-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, washer and dryer a bath and a half and a nice deck.

I highly recommend it

I am pleased with Thirdwood Place. They seem to managing her care well such as her medicine and her food. She says the staff are pleasant and they are responsive whenever I call with questions and seem to be efficient. The only issue if she needs memory care ever they do not provide that type of care here. She has a 1 bedroom apartment that we furnished and I like it. She loves it and thinks the food is good, it is healthy, low sodium food and they get 3 meals a day. She is in a place that is the best fit for her. They are very careful with their covid protocols, they had no covid cases. They have opened up the dining room but they do not allowing guests to dine yet. It is a beautiful facility with awesome landscape and it is very safe and well maintained. I would recommend to others looking.

Good fit for mom

We chose Thirwood Place because my mom really liked the overall feel of this facility and thought it suited her best. The apartment sizes here are great and spacious. She is on the 1st floor and she has a door to a patio and some have a door to a porch, so they all have access to be outside which is really nice. My mom likes it here and I would definitely recommend.

Friendly Community and Nice Place to Live

It's difficult to rate during the pandemic, but all the areas I've been exposed to, including the actual apartment for move-in, were very very nice. I really like the look and feel of the place. The staff and few residents I met, as well as the security guard at the gate, are very nice people. The staff is very helpful. My loved ones say they're well cared for. The cafeteria is opening soon, activities are starting to ramp up, and visitation will be opened up soon. I've had to schedule visits in a model apartment due to Covid up until now. There are lots of common areas that are comfortably set up with couches and a fireplace, so they can sit and chat with their masks on. For people who aren't super mobile or adventurous, it creates social opportunities and gets them out of their apartments for a minute. Outdoors is a nice grassy area. It's a pet friendly community, and one of the residents brings his dog around to visit and chat.

Exceptionally Clean and Friendly

Phenomenal place, I can't say enough good things about Thirwood Place. They are exceptionally clean and exceptionally friendly. I looked at 5 places in my search and I feel the price is very comparable. My brother has only been there six weeks so with the Covid-19 quarantine we have not been able to see or do much in regards to activities.

The best choice

My mother spent 4 wonderful years at Thirwood. Yes, it did seem expensive at the time, but it was worth every penny. She was safe, secure, had excellent meals and made a whole new circle of friends. She was able to do her errands and see her doctors safely. She got her hair done there, played bridge and Bingo and attended an exercise class three times a week. Her apartment was beautiful. The common areas were immaculate and always filled with fresh flowers and plants. The staff was always respectful, professional and cheerful. In the last few months before she passed away, the management was incredibly helpful to us as a family. They provided all the care and support we needed. I truly cannot say enough about Thirwood Place. Four years and we never had one complaint!

Visited all - This is the one for us...

After through research and visits to all available Mid and East Cape facilities, we found Thirwood to be the best value and fit for our family. The facility is as good or better than competition. The staff is well trained, extremely helpful, and very friendly. The meal plan is flexible for senior appetities. Others require payment for 2-3 meals per day. Thirwood has a one meal per day - 15 or 30 days option, which is better suited to limited senior eating and finances.
