At Georgia Weiss’s ten Avalon Homes throughout Virginia and Maryland—which range from eight to 15 residents—if someone likes the color yellow, her room will be painted yellow before she moves in. If another wants coffee in bed at 6 am every day or a ham-and-cheese sandwich at midnight, it’s not a problem. “One of our residents was British and loved teatime,” says Weiss. “So we prepared tea and biscuits for her—and anyone else who cared to partake—every afternoon.”

Everything is working out very well for my father since his move to this community. He is doing well, and I'am satisfied with all they have done for us. I know he is safe, and in good hands at this community. It has been a positive experience overall.

Avalon House is very clean and well kept. The staff takes really good care of my mom and she is very comfortable here. The staff is very warm and make my mom feel loved. My mom enjoys the food and the staff keeps up on her meals.
