At a difficult time in the life of our Mom and Dad as they suffered the devastation and total loss of their home of over 60 years during hurricane Matthew, Diane Carvalho, Executive Director of The Talbot, provided an immediate source of hope. She was extremely sympathetic to the urgency of their situation and went “beyond the call of duty” to find a place for them to live at The Talbot. Now, five months later, our parents (lifetime residents of Norfolk with no intention of ever leaving their home) are pleasantly surprised to find life at The Talbot to be peaceful, stress free, and just what they need at this stage in their life. With the Five Star Dining, the fitness center, housekeeping services, and many opportunities for activities and socialization, as well as the convenient location with easy access to all their needs, they have no desire to leave. Our thanks to Diane and the staff at The Talbot for providing the “perfect home”.

We have lived here seven years and have no desire to go anywhere else, especially now with all the new furniture, carpeting, painting. The renovating will go on until we are brand, spanking new from top to bottom. Food's good, activities plentiful and resident's are friendly. We are happy here.

My mother, Maxine Ebert, lived at the Talbot on Granby for almost a full year, before she passed away in early February 2019. Her time there was short but beautiful, spent with friends she made quite easily and activities that she enjoyed immensely. I know this to be true because I had the good fortune of being able to visit her about five times every week. She loved her apartment and appreciated the attention the maintenance staff gave to her when something needed fixing or adjustment. The dining room was lovely and though she was a picky eater (always was) she thought many of her meals were just delicious. My mother always felt safe at the Talbot and the warmth and friendliness of the people she lived among gave her a real sense of belonging. The front desk people; Kathryn, who drove her to many of her doctor appointments; and everyone else on the staff right up to the two executive directors who were there at different times during her residency... everyone (know I'm leaving out a lot of people who deserve to be thanked by name)... everyone played significant role in my mother's enjoyment of what turned out to be the last months of her life. Thank you, Talbot; I will speak great things about you every time the opportunity presents itself.

We have enjoyed living here for over two years. We chose the Talbot for spacious apartments, location, services, and ambience - also the most economical place we found. What's not to like? Would make the same choice again.

I was very reluctant to leave my home of 35 years but the staff here are making me so very glad I did. From the director Vicki to all the way down the line, they all make you feel as if you're the most important person here whenever you're talking to them. I'm amazed how Vicki managed to get so many wonderful people under one roof. The facility itself couldn't be nicer and there's so many activities each day no one ever has to feel bored or lonely. The residents as well are all as friendly as can be and you're always greeted with a smile and a word or two. On a scale of one star to five I give it a ten at least.
