Everything about or experience with Lorien of Mt. Airy was positive. The staff was competent, caring, professional and personable. Even the staff that didn't work directly with the residents knew all their names and always had a kind word or greeting. Mom's room was more than adequate and the food was good. The staff on the third floor assisted living was especially capable and caring and they kept us informed at every turn. We have recommended this facility many times and will continue to sing their praises. Thank you, Lorien

I was fortunate to be able to do my rehab at Lorien, Mt. Airy. The care, the progress and the professionalism was tops. I would recommend Lorien, Mt. Airy to anyone. I also have relatives as residents. All are very happy with their new home. The cleanliness, the health care, the activities are amongst the best.

I visited Lorien Mt. Airy. I had an aunt that lived there, and now her husband volunteers there. It is quite accessible to Damascus, MD, so that’s why it is well-liked by people in this area. The staff seemed to be pleasant. My relatives who had been there found it to be quite good. Cleanliness, politeness, and all of the basic things were a 5, but the reason I’m not interested in it is because they mainly have older people, and I’m looking for something that has younger people.

I visited this facility

My father-in-law liked the food at Lorien Mt. Airy. They really didn't have any activities for assisted living. The staff was very sparse, but you would occasionally see a couple of nurses, and they were very nice. The couple we would see took care of him and were there full time, which was very nice. You just didn't see a lot of people around. It was clean. I never ate there. It's not a very big dining area, but there were tables set up and most of them had four people to a table. Their acute care and rehab area impressed me the most. I wouldn't recommend the assisted living, but I would recommend if someone needs to go there for acute care or rehab because it's very good. There are so many areas in that facility; they do sub-acute rehab, long-term or skilled, and then the assisted living. The assisted living is not very good, and the skilled could be improved upon.

The other one we were looking at was Lorien. Their rooms were average-sized. I have visited this facility three times because, location-wise, it was closer to me. I thought that would be the place to go for my friend, but at that time, they didn't have any availability. It was an older facility. They were also in the process of renovating and upgrading it. They did have some very good ideas with their renovations, but I went there three times in a couple of months and it didn't look like they had made much progress. However, it looked like it would be very nice once they completed their renovations. If we have to move my friend, that's the one we would try to get into if he was going to move closer to where I live.
