I have visited Brookdale First Colony, and they were great. The apartments were beautiful, and it came with a microwave.

Terrace- First Colony is a great place for retired people because they have activities. They're independent, but yes, they are with a group of people their own age. They form friendships; they have a community -- it's great. Upkeeping is pretty good. They also have a service where you can contact for people to come in to their homes occasionally to help them with their medications, which was what we did with my mother-in-law. I think the staff is very loving and very caring. She's happy to be there. She's been there for like 10 years, and so it's her home.

At first, my brother-in-law was apprehensive about what he wants to do at Terrace at First Colony, but they really get you involved there and make you feel welcome. He is the secretary of the little association they developed there. He had adjusted very well. It's mainly an apartment style living as opposed to an enclosed setting with the rooms literally in an enclosed building. The facility offers both assisted and private living, so he's able to do his daily duties on his own. He has a vehicle, so he is able to drive if he needs to. They have also the bus service that is offered for the whole community. They provide two meals a day. You do have the option of three meals a day, that's an extra expense if you want. You have a nice kitchen in your apartment to be able to cook if you choose or prepare on your own as well. He truly loves it there.

I like the First Colony. It's close to all my friends and somebody can reach me. The staff was very good. They have exercises and swimming. I checked a 1-bedroom apartment. It's pretty good and there's a nice full kitchen. They've asked me to choose the color, the carpet, and the countertop.

My mother moved in last December in Terrace at First Colony. She's beginning to adjust and goes to everybody. I think it’s a good facility. You're getting want you pay for. The apartments are very nice. They wear name tags so they know each other, that's very nice too. After losing my dad she needs company, they were willing to take her dog. That's God sent. They have lots of activities planned every minute of the day. They have movies, bingo, outings to restaurants and different things. You just choose what you want to do. The only thing we had to get used to is that it wasn't an indoor facility where all the apartments were indoors. It's like a Spanish villa, almost everything's kind of open. They have four courtyards that when you walk out of your apartment, you have an open walkway covered by the building. That is a drawback at first that we really had to consider it but it's not a big deal.

We knew a number of people at the Terrace at First Colony. We looked for a community and some places had a cold atmosphere. Everybody there was friendly and we liked it. They were prompt at getting out requests done. It was also closer to our church. It was a two bedroom place. However, our cats wouldn't be able to go out because the doors did not face outside.

The Terrace is fine, it's very clean, there was nothing wrong with it, but we just decided not to go that route. They had activities weekly. They had apartment type rooms.
