Assisted Living Reviews for Lorien Mt. Airy

October 31, 2016

By Steve Hagan

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My family moved my mother into Lorien, Mt Airy in February 2016 when we finally admitted to ourselves that she was not safe living on her own. We visited many facilities in the Montgomery, Frederick, Carroll, and Howard counties. It was an easy decision to make once we found Lorien, Mt Airy.. The move, while difficult for my mother as well as her children, was made easier by the wonderful people we encountered right from the start. The initial tour of the facility was quite impressive and the conversations we had with various staff members made our decision easier. Paula Wilhelm was a joy to work with and set my thinking straight as far as the best thing to do for my mother. She made us aware that this was a transition time for all of us, and set expectations accurately and accordingly. My mother passed away on 10/20/2016, and we were all comforted by how many staff members offered sincere condolences on my mothers passing. Such a move for a loved family member is never easy on anyone involved, but I would not hesitate to make the move to Lorien, Mt.Airy given the same situation. I hope this review helps assuage the fears and concerns families go thru during trying times. It is indeed a wonderful place with wonderful caring people. I may still stop in from time to time to say hello to the friends I've made there. Peace to you all!

I liked Lorien Mt Airy. Everyone was very pleasant, and the people looked very happy. It's a beautiful facility, and I liked their security. It was easy to find, and I thought it would have been a fantastic place. Their physical therapy area, dining area, and ice cream parlor for family socials were nice. Everything there was very nice. I didn't taste the food, but it smelled very good. They had 2 sets of doors to make sure only authorized people would get in, and residents who should be outside weren't able to get outside for medical reasons. I really liked their facility, and I felt that for what they offered, the price was very fair.

the only problem I have with this provider is the food service. really needs to improve in that area from serving cold food that should be hot to dirty place settings and cups

Excellent assisted living home with a superb staff! Its size gives it a "home-spun" atmosphere in a picturesque setting of Mount Airy, MD. I would highly recommend Lorien Mount Airy for your consideration and visit.

At this time my husband and I have two of our loved ones living at Lorien Mt.. Airy. Because Lorien had no rooms available my brother-in-law lived in Lorien in Ellicott City until a room became available in Mt. Airy to be closer to his family. Later my mother-in-law was able to secure a room when she became needy. They are both very happy there and are treated very well. We looked at several other facilities before Lorien but nothing compared. The staff are excellent, and the food is great, What more could you want.

My grandmother lived at Lorien Mt. Airy for 7 years. After the positive experience she had at the rehab unit there, she made the decision to move into the Assisted Living unit. During her time at Lorien, she made several good friends and planned her days around the various activities or trips that were offered. We felt blessed that our loved one was able to live out the end of her life in a place where she was well cared for and the staff felt like extended family.

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.

I am now staying in Foxmoor Estate Assisted Living. The staff is great. The rooms are spacious. We have activities and at times, we have games. The food is very good.
