Let us show you around Lorien Encore.

A Whole New Level of Senior Living.

Lorien Encore

When you enter Encore, Lorien's premier senior living community in Ellicott City, you step into a lively, energetic and friendly Assisted Living community. Here, residents get the treatment they need, but not in a way they expect. Simply put, Encore has choices and options you can't find anywhere else to meet your needs of today and tomorrow. Our team of people-focused professionals will make you feel like part of our family.

A stunning country club property where residents enjoy access to a private movie theater, newly opened beauty shop, restaurant-style dining and even a café with fresh, made to order food for you and your guests! They're also free to experience the beauty of Ellicott City and its surroundings, like Turf Valley Resort and golf course. It's one of many reasons we affectionately refer to it as Club Encore.

Our residents receive care from skilled professionals equipped with new technology, including upcoming iPerformance suites, which are Telemedicine-capable private rooms that will be connected to a nearby hospital. This increases residents' comfort by avoiding the time and stress involved with visiting the hospital. That's in addition to the full offering of Lorien services in Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living and both Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation Therapy. So while this decision is never easy, we're here to help you make it with confidence.

Encore also has the desire to help those who are impacted by Parkinson's Disease. We are excited to share that we have recently been recognized as the FIRST and ONLY Parkinson's Certified Community (both Assisted Living and Sub-Acute Rehab) in Maryland!

We have also partnered with the Parkinson's Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) to also help our residents and the community fight Parkinson's Disease.

Love for Lorien.


My mother had a very positive experience for the 17 months she lived in assisted living at Encore at Turf Valley. She enjoyed the food and the activities and created many friendships with the staff and other residents. During her last days (she passed away peacefully at age 95) many of her friends and staff members came to visit and give her their loving comments. Thanks to everyone there for making a difference in our family's lives.

It's the people who make the difference. The administrative staff at Encore are knowledgeable, helpful and efficient; nursing and aide staff are caring, compassionate and competent; therapists are skilled, patient and motivating; support staff are always polite, friendly and efficient; activities staff keep residents busy. Encore is clean facility with high standards. I trusted Encore with my mom's care from rehab to assisted living to hospice. I couldn't have chosen a better home for her.
