Thirwood Place Carefree Living Apartments

Welcome to Carefree Living, Thirwood Place’s newest style of senior living, ideal for those who are ready to downsize a bit but continue living active, independent lives. Carefree Living residents continue to work, volunteer and be as involved in the local community as they were in their own homes, but without the burdens of home ownership. It’s time to take the limits off your leisure time!
