Independent Living Reviews for The Talbot on Granby

I visited this facility

We found one that we liked: The Talbot on Granby. We looked at an empty apartment that had already been reserved, which would have fit our needs very well, but nothing else has opened up similar to that apartment since then. We've put a $500 deposit on one that might become open. All of the people who live there that we met seemed nice. The facility had a lot of activities that were available. Inside, I thought the atmosphere felt good. We looked at a very large apartment; we want as much room as possible. The one that we were shown was what we told them would be the only size we would accept, so they would have to have another one exactly like it before we would be interested. We haven't received feedback about that yet. We saw four or five different areas where they were playing cards or doing other activities in the gym area and the cafeteria area, though we didn't see the real hustle and bustle of people getting out and being really active.

I spent a couple hours a few weeks ago touring this facility looking for an apartment for my mother. This is so much more than an apartment. It has the meals and activities that I wanted for her. The sales lady took her time explaining why it would be a good fit for mother. She took me to view several different apartments to find the best fit. She didn't rush me and in the end I couldn't wait to bring mom by to see it. The apartments are spacious and of all that I have looked at, Talbot on Granby is at the top of the list. My search is over as far as I am concerned.

The Talbot on Granby was a smaller community and a little bit more intimate. We did eat lunch there, and it was very good. It's a quieter facility because it's smaller, but the apartments were very large and very nice. The staff that we met was very nice, but we didn't run into a lot of people there. Everything we saw was very clean and well-maintained. They had lots of activities. They have a happy hour on Mondays and Friday nights. They're going to have their 10th anniversary on Thursday, and they have invited my in-laws to go to that. They're going to have a singer and refreshments. They also do a number of outings. They go to the theaters, shopping, and movies every night. The apartments had high ceilings, which made them feel even larger, and they were well-maintained. Their cleaning and housekeeping staff were always there.

I visited this facility

I visited a place called Talbot. It was more like a building where each person had their own room, but they came down to a central dining hall. The hallway is what made it look more of an apartment complex or a condominium building instead of a building that was part of a hospital. It had carpeting as opposed to tile floors. It just had a different feel to it that made it seem more homey. A nurse runs it and she's also a social worker. She showed me around and showed me the dining area. They have a movie theater, an exercise room, and a pool. She showed me an example of the room which was really nice and described what it was like to be there. To me it was a very nice place, a little bit pricey but when you get to where you need a higher level of assistance than what my father needs, then that's a possible place for him to go.

Six weeks ago, my in-laws moved into your fantastic retirement home, The Talbot on Granby in Norfolk, VA. My wife and I have not seen them happier in the past twelve years since they moved from their home town and retired in Norfolk. Prior to their move to The Talbot, they lived in a lovely apartment complex, but one that had few retirees. From the very first time they visited The Talbot, they had a terrific feeling about it - and their feelings proved to be correct. Every staff member they have had contact with has been warm, caring and professional - from the office to the maintenance to restaurant staff! Additionally, my in-laws have thoroughly enjoyed the plethora of activities offered - they feel like they are away at camp. Apparently, Five Star Senior Living has learned all of the winning ways of running a retirement facility; the company should take great pride in knowing The Talbot on Granby is a super star player on its team!

I moved my mother into this community and she has never been happier. She is a widow and very lonely at home. She now seems like her old self again and wishes she had moved in sooner. She was worried about having to get rid of her things, but the apartments are so large, she was able to bring everything she wanted. My mother is so happy that we are now talking to her sister to move there also.
