Welcome Home to Cape Cod's Premier Senior Living Community

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 with your own personal furnishings. Each apartment includes individually-controlled heat and air conditioning, a fully-applianced kitchen (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher), washer and dryer, and extra storage room.
