Reviews of Byron House

I visited this facility
I recently visited Byron House and it has changed considerably over the last year. It now is very cold, more very institutional. I do not know what happened (they do have some new employees) but I no longer want my mother to live there. The staff is still friendly, but again, when I first visited in January 2014 it felt like a home. Now it looks and feels like a nursing home.

I am a friend or relative of resident
My mom has been a resident for more than a year and I cannot say enough about this wonderful home. There are about 30 residents and the staff is caring and looks after each individual's needs. It is very beautiful and feels like a home.

I am/was a resident of this facility
Byron House Assisted Living looks like a large private residence. It's very pretty. It is affiliated with Catholic Church, and it has a good reputation. My mom broke her arm so she had a hard time getting dressed while her arm was healing, so they provided all personal assistance and medication management. The staff is very capable and it's a very personal type of care. They hold social events and they bring in entertainers or volunteers from their parish. They also have a van to take the residents out to lunch, shopping, and movies. It doesn't feel like it's an institution. Mom is very content there.
From Byron House
It goes without saying that every senior is unique. So we offer a wide variety of comfortable communities in desirable neighborhoods close to families and recreational activities. Each is designed with its own features and amenities that reflect our knowledge and expertise in caring for seniors. It's simply a matter of finding the right community in the best location with the right programs and the appropriate level of support.
Support is our specialty - because Victory Housing is committed to helping seniors achieve their highest possible quality of life. So our conversation with each prospective resident and family member begins with a clear, honest understanding of the individual and his or her needs.
Byron House represents affordable housing at its finest. The heavily wooded property - located on the campus of Our Lady of Mercy Church in beautiful Potomac, MD - bustles with native birds and other wildlife.
Our committed and caring staff becomes familiar with each resident's needs and interests. They assist with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and grooming, and provide medication reminders. Residents also receive weekly housekeeping and laundry services. Emergency assistance is available around the clock.
