Welcome Home to Cape Cod's Premier Senior Living Community

Thirwood Place is the only family-owned and operated senior living community on Cape Cod. Since 1956, The Davenport Companies have started, operated, and maintained some of the region’s most respected businesses. Thirwood Place in South Yarmouth is a treasured part of their portfolio. While many senior living communities around the country are run by large real estate investment firms, Thirwood Place is unique in having local ownership that is on property and working with team members daily. When looking for a community in which to live, there is peace of mind that local ownership is on hand to make decisions quickly and ensure the highest quality of life possible for residents.

Cape Cod Healthcare Affiliation

Thirwood Place Senior Living Community is the only senior living option affiliated with Cape Cod Healthcare on Cape Cod.  During our more than three-decade affiliation, both organizations have enjoyed a mutual respect and trust for one another.

This unique partnership allows Thirwood’s Care Team access (at the resident’s request) to the hospital’s patient data computer system for up-to-date information and medical records sharing, and residents enjoy health-related services such as on-site lab work.

Thirwood Place’s newest style of senior living is ideal for those who are ready to downsize a bit but continue living active, independent lives.

It’s time to take the limits off your leisure time!
