    Thetford House is a singe family home that was adapted for the residents. It is on a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood where our neighbors are our friends. What makes Thetford what it is, is the staff who have been there for 11 years, who operate the home with an open heart and very deep respect and kindness. We have a vegetable garden that we use in our cooking. We spend our days with our residents assisting with all aspects of daily living, but equally as important is the relationship we build together. We provide activities- the kind of things you would expect from Games, to Art, to Music. We have an art therapist weekly. Our potter comes each month. Most important, we just spend time with our residents. We act like a family, sitting together in the dining room, talking, or looking at a book, or we sit on the deck for lunch and listen to music and sing. It is, I believe, the relationships between staff, residents, our families and your families, that make it feel like a real home.

They spend time in the living room, or sitting with each other or staff in the kitchen or out on the deck doing activities or just being comfortable together. Our idea of a program is to simply make Thetford feel like a home where our residents feel and surrounded by kindness.
