Assisted Living Reviews for Thirwood Place

I visited this facility

Thirwood Place is a great, clean place. The community is spread out with different apartments for the different levels of needs of the people. You would see residents who seemed happy to be there walking around. The prices of the apartments were not that bad, either. I would recommend this place to anybody looking.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother is at Thirwood Place. It was one of the many places that I visited, and I liked it from the very start. They're all very nice. The staff members are all excellent. My mother is in a private apartment. It has a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen, and it has its own laundry and bathroom. It has a balcony. They have different exercise classes; they have coffee hours; and they have an indoor pool. They are located beside a pond as well. They have spacious grounds. The best thing about this is its proximity. It is close by to me so that we can visit. This is my mom's third month now. I would recommend this facility.

Thirwood Place is a wonderful place to live. I was there for 8 years and left only to be closer to family. It has a staff which is caring and really competent. The buildings and grounds are beautifully maintained and provide an excellent atmosphere in all respects.
