Assisted Living

The Cove at Thirwood Place, Thirwood's assisted living community, provides a caring environment where each resident is secure in the knowledge that help is available when needed. Our goal is to give each resident the opportunity to maximize his or her independence.

The Cove offers spacious one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment homes decorated to each resident’s individual taste. Each apartment includes individually-controlled heat and air conditioning, a fully-applianced kitchen (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher), washer and dryer, and extra storage room.

A trial stay in a furnished respite apartment is available to ease the transition and give both the resident and their family time to confirm their decision was appropriate.
