I have had issues in the very resent past I had a meeting with the Administrator and the Executive Director today and many of the issues that I had are being resolved. I have a lot of hope that I will be able to give Harmony Hall a 5 Star rating. In the past, the rating that I would have given Harmony Hall was a 5 star rating. This was due to the attention that the employees from the people in the dining room, chef, nurses, med techs, caregivers and ultimately the Executive Director. This was due to the attention that when I had a concern, it was addressed. Due to this meeting I am raising the rating to a 3 star rating.
My dad moved into Harmony Hall in October 2015. He had a great one bedroom apartment that was very spacious. Before moving dad to Harmony Hall I visited over 20 assisted living in the Anne Arundel and Howard County area. Harmony Hall by far offered the most Care at the best price ever. The caregivers really took good care of my dad and kept me informed at all times. I spent a lot of time with dad at Harmony Hall. The food was delicious and the staff was incredible. unfortunately Dad passed two weeks ago he had been in bad shape for a long time. He kept telling me he just wanted to get back to Harmony Hall. I thank all of the folks at Harmony Hall. I highly recommend Harmony Hall I'm glad Dad got to spend time there and I got to meet such nice people.
My nephew and I recently selected Harmony Hall for my sister. The staff there has been extremely helpful. They are caring and responsive and have eased the concerns of our family. My sister, who has been there a month, has settled in nicely, is participating in activities and enjoying the food. There is really nothing negative I can say. It is everything we hoped to find for our loved one and we recommend it highly.
My mother lived at Harmony Hall for 21 years. She had medical conditions that made it unsafe for her to live alone, but she didn't want to live with her children. She started in independent living and really thrived there. She was relieved of the burden of managing her prescription drugs, and cooking meals; two tasks that she really needed help with. She took advantage of the outings and activities offered by Harmony Hall. Over the years her health declined. After a stroke left her severely impaired, she moved to a higher level of care. Through the years, Harmony Hall constantly assessed her current needs and made adjustments to her care as needed. The staff was a fabulous partner with me to provide the best quality of life we could achieve. My mom was not always easy to care for, but the folks at Harmony Hall worked very hard to find ways to improve her life as she aged and her needs and capabilities changed.The facility is very clean and well maintained. They refurbish the well used common areas regularly to keep them fresh and in good repair. They have areas our family used to hold gatherings so we could include Mom, even after her health prevented her from going out to events. Every staff member greets residents by name; a skill that I am a little jealous of, and is appreciated by the residents and families. They all had techniques for working with my mom. The on site occupational and physical therapy are outstanding. So is the nursing care. And when our family reached the end of life phase with Mom, Harmony Hall was excellent at that as well, partering seamlessly with Gilchrist, right in her familiar home, mom's Harmony Hall apartment. Harmony Hall was a great home for Mom 21 years ago when was mobile and actively participated in activities. It was still great as her health declined over the years. Mom had a peaceful passing, in her own apartment at Harmony Hall, with her family and familiar caregivers around her. I am thankful we were able to partner with Harmony Hall to provide this.
My mother was recently diagnosed with Parkinson' disease. After months in the hospital and rehab we were fortunate enough to find her a forever home at Harmony Hall. The entire staff - administrative, transportation, nurses, care givers, dining room - ALL of them are truly amazing. They made mom feel comfortable and cared for and are always responsive to any questions we have. During this pandemic they have risen above and beyond to keep the residents and staff protected and safe, as well as the family members informed.
If you want a second family that will truly care about your loved one, research no further- Harmony Hall is the right choice! I did EXTENSIVE research before transferring my mom from rehab to Harmony Hall, and I couldn't be happier. I was impressed with the staff before the pandemic, but now I am honestly just blown away by the level of commitment by the entire staff - not only to my mom's heath and safety, but to her happiness and desire to stay socially engaged. The amount of communication with the families during this quarantine has been simply remarkable and appreciated more than I can express. The staff has gone above and beyond to keep my mom connected to her family through video calls and now even an in--person visit by my sister and nieces from a safe distance. I look forward to being able to fly back to Maryland and see my mom and thank the staff. Harmony Hall is an absolutely beautiful facility with an incredibly caring staff. I was extremely worried when COVID-19 first hit and was scared for my mom and the entire elderly population across the country, but it all changed when one of her nurses told me on the phone that she loves my mom "as if she were her mom."
My family could not have picked a better place for my dad's last couple of months. He was with Harmony Hall from Feb. 2020 through May 2020. Even though not being able to visit him during the COVID outbreak, the staff at Harmony Hall were like his 2nd family. The facility is super nice, like a resort. My dad was extremely happy with the facility and staff. Much appreciation to the Harmony Hall family for taking such good care of him through a difficult time!!! You will always be in my heart!!

PLEASE do not send a loved on to this establishment!!My Mother was in the memory care ward and the care of almostnon existent. I would arrive around 11am, my Mom had not been cleaned up for the day, her bottom partial was not in (she could not eat without it); they would tell me she didn't eat her breakfast, that's correct you need to put her partial in!!! I went in one day and she had Feces on her shirt.I brought this to their attention (the nurse Natalia) every day, oh sorry we were busy was the answer I received. when I found the feces, I reported this to the Ombudsman for Howard County, we had a meeting with Debbie Gallagher one of the Administrators; I made sure she knew I was watching for any retaliation. 2 weeks later my Mom was found dead!No one ever called me to tell me she was in distress; however they would call me for every other thing, even in the middle of the night. I rushedover when I finally got the call from Hospice and they said she had just died the minute before I got there (literally). I unfortunately I lost my Dad shortly after my Mom as he was very sick as well. I was the main caretaker for both of my parents, so I am just starting to pursue this tragic event.When I got off the elevator all of the staff scattered, I went to find Natalia and she was no where to be found; when I finally found her she would not answer any of my questions and told me I would have to speak to the Admin staff. I was approached by two of the staff members who truly liked my Mom and they said that there was foul play and they were visibly upset.I could go on an on about the Horrific care my Mother received.Please do not send your loved one to this establishment. I sent myDad to Sunrise across the street from Harmony Hall and when he passed it was the most heartfelt and professional process anyone could ask for.Please take this seriously, I never write reviews but I am not at rest with the death of my Mother.
An absolutely lovely facility, with amazing, friendly, and helpful staff. Harmony Hall helped us host a charity event, and everyone was beyond amazing. The facility itself is beautiful and has newly been renovated, and every time we walked in there, everyone looked so happy. Harmony Hall is well organized, and always has lots of events going on for the people who live there. They have movie nights, bingo nights, and other community events to bring everyone together. Everyone is super nice and I highly recommend Lorien Harmony Hall.
Anybody can give a 5 star rating, so don't be so quick to judge based on this. For example - the assistant manager gives it 5 stars; ( Monikki Spriggs), but do yourself and your family member a favor, and use the Governments website to see the score from the patients' perspective.
