I Visited This Facility

I went to the Firs yesterday. It was nice, but it was independent living. The alcove studio apartment was nice, and it was one of the better ones I've seen. It costs more for assisted living, and I would have to get caregivers, which was a turn-off. They have good activities, like a bus to take you shopping, Bingo, church services, and movie nights. They have a salad bar, and we had brunch there. They have a community fee when you first move in, and they raise the rent every year.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I've lived in The Firs for 3 years. I'm extremely satisfied with the environment here. The residents, the management and especially the staff personnel. I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to a Senior. The Firs provides bus service for all Doctor visits, shopping 3 times a week, and special arranged activities. It is the place for Independent Living for Seniors.

I Visited This Community

When it comes to retirement communities for active seniors, it really can’t get much better than the Firs. While this is an independent retirement community, residents can lighten their load with housekeeping, laundry services, and access to transportation to local stores and attractions. The community even schedules many visiting healthcare professionals. As health begins to decline, or when additional assistance is required on a short-term basis—there is an onsite care agency that seniors can hire. The amenities, excursions, classes, and activities are versatile, and if they so wish—will keep many seniors busier than before they moved in. This is a pricy facility, but ideal for the active and cultured senior.
