I visited this facility with a family member who was at the time searching for a retirement community to call home. Westminster-Thurber is in a lovely area of Columbus; it is a short walk from Goodale Park, the Short North, right next to Giant Eagle grocery store, and is even right across the street from a fenced in dog park. The grounds at the facility were quite small, however it is so close to many parks and recreational areas that the property size is not much of an issue. The rooms in Thurber Tower are quite cozy; the one bedrooms are smaller than what my family member was used to in her current one bedroom apartment but were kept up quite well. The staff seemed friendly enough and it was comforting to know that the facility is very close to several hospitals in the Columbus area (Mount Carmel, Ohio State, Grant, etc.) Overall, I thought it was a very lovely community considering it is in an urban environment, but my family member decided to reside elsewhere because of how busy the area is. During our visit to Columbus, the Short North had been celebrating ComFest, a street fair in the Goodale Park area. The area was packed, there were people walking everywhere at all times of the day, and it was just too hectic and stressful for my family member, who was told that Goodale Park often has fairs like that during the warm months. While many retirees enjoy fairs and such, she was searching for something a little calmer.
