Customer Reviews

I was pleasantly surprised to find this jewel of a place for senior living.

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!

Outstanding rating given after 3 months of experience with this facility and wonderful personnel.

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.

This is a beautiful facility with lovely grounds, pleasant staff, great activities and amenities.

We were very impressed with Thirwood. Larry escorted us around. The entire facility is beautifully decorated and very clean. My mother was lucky enough to get one of their Garden Suite one-bedroom apartment which is slightly larger than a normal one-bedroom. Regarding fees, we have compared them to three other, Royal at Harwich, Epoch at Brewster and Maplewood in Yarmouth (?) all are higher priced. In addition, Thirwood has a heated indoor pool and my mother used to go to the local Y for water aerobics, so she is thrilled. Regarding the financial portion, our finances were very close and we were able to get in on a current special where our entry fee (the lowest) was waived. We give Thirwood an A+ so far.

healthier meals

It has been a good experience at Thirwood Place. The only thing they could improve on is offering more vegetables and healthier meals in general. The food has a little too much salt and a little too much sugar. It has been a wonderful place overall.

Wonderful place

In the first week the staff has been so great to my mom. The meals are awesome and it is so comforting to know my mom is safe.

Thirwood is first class all the bang for your buck!

We just moved my parents in 2 weeks ago and so far so good! It is a lovely facility with gorgeous grounds on Flax Pond. The amenities are great with an indoor pool, fitness room, greenhouse, lovely dining room, pub, country store, breakfast restaurant,, wonderful gathering places, real library, and even a billiard room! I saw many other senior living developments that seemed very over-the-top but this one is done in such a beautiful, comfortable way with wicker furniture in the common areas that is so Cape Cod! My parents have a ground-floor unit with a lovely patio and they are able to park their car 30 feet from their patio. The staff have all been so wonderful… From the admissions people to the maintenance people to the front desk staff to the dining room staff. They have all been wonderful. Not only was this a wonderful fit for my parents but it was the most budget friendly as well. We really could not have picked a better place!
