    July 2023 Resident Calendar

    Here at The Annapolitan we have positively primo plans for July. Pick your perfect summer outings: there’s pottery painting, or perhaps practice putting with mini golf at Severna Park Golf Center. Need to pick up some provisions? Pop over to Wal-Mart with us! Then partake of plates piled high with seafood at Donnelly’s Dockside Grill.
    Mid-month our Patriot Party returns – our yearly patriotic celebration that pulls together friends and family for a positively pleasant afternoon. Then, we wrap up the month with a proper birthday party for our July friends. There’s always plenty percolating at The Annapolitan – we’ll see you soon!

  • June 2023 Resident Calendar

    June 2023 Resident Calendar

    The long, light-filled days of summer have arrived, and there is lots to do! We kick off summer with a picnic at Jonas Green State Park. Later, we look west – way west – to inspire the ultimate summer celebration: our annual Friends & Family Luau. Of course, we have our monthly shopping trip (JC Penney for summer essentials), then we head back home to honor the special men in our lives at our Father’s Day Lunch.
    Looking for more to do? Let’s go golfing! The second half of June brings us a long-time favorite – mini golf at Severna Park Golf Center and lunch out at Pusser’s Grille. Of course, we wrap up June celebrating all of the June birthdays at the monthly birthday bash. See you there!

  • May 2023 Resident Calendar

    May 2023 Resident Calendar

    We’re on the move this May! We begin with baseball – Bowie Baysox baseball, to be precise, and friends and family are welcome to join us. Then we’ll make our way to Target for some spring must-haves. May just wouldn’t be May without Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day. Join us for the Friends & Family Fiesta on May 6th, and a lovely Mother’s Day lunch on May 13th. There is much to celebrate!
    Could there be more? Most definitely! More may events include a visit to the historic William Paca House, mingling at the annual Senior Summit and Picnic, lunch at Carroll Creek Cafe, and of course, our May birthday bash.

  • April 2023 Resident Calendar

    April 2023 Resident Calendar

    There is no question about it – spring unequivocally has arrived and we’re quite excited! We start April with a quick trip to the Dollar Tree, followed by a feel-good lunch fit for a queen at Garry’s Grill. Mid-month, our Friends & Family Spring Fling Swing Party perfectly qualifies as the hepcat’s path to cut a rug, quaff some cocktails, and spend quality time together enjoying live music. Later, the quintessential quest is upon us as we make our way to the ballet for Don Quixote. As always, April’s birthday bash is queued up with games and treats to wrap up the month!

  • March 2023 Resident Calendar

    March 2023 Resident Calendar

    March brings a bevy of opportunities to go green. We start with a shopping trip to grab bargains galore at Marshalls. Then, bet on the best Irish fare at Brian Boru. Of course, the green theme continues with our Friends & Family St. Patrick’s Day event. As always, we invite residents, friends, and families to don their most glorious green and celebrate with green beer, our open bar, and great food at our Friends & Family St. Patrick’s Day event. March marches on with bowling at Severna Park Lanes (plus pizza, popcorn, and Pepsi – who could resist?) and snacks and games at our monthly birthday bash.

  • February 2023 Resident Calendar

    February 2023 Resident Calendar

    February may be a short month, but there is no shortage of celebrations at The Annapolitan! We start by stepping out to the Annapolis Mall Library for a senior tea and social. We’ve got Valentine’s Day Vinyl Libations with Larry, so don’t vanish! Instead say hi to our resident DJ as he spins some tunes, and remember to stop at the chocolate fountain for a sweet treat.
    For our February lunch outing, we’ll savor the selections at O’Loughlin’s Restaurant. Then Mardi Gras goes marching in mid-month for our Friends & Family event, where you’ll find an open bar, festive music, and finger food. Round out the month with a shopping trip, plus enjoy visits from friends feathered, furry, scaly (and maybe even slimy) as Echoes of Nature returns. Of course, February finishes with the monthly birthday bash!

  • January 2023 Resident Calendar

    January 2023 Resident Calendar

    Behold! A bright new year is a upon us and we are bringing on some fun events. First, bag some bargains at Kohls. Then, we’re betting on a local favorite – Mother’s Peninsula Grill – for a bountiful lunch. Mid-month, we’ll bop back in time at the Museum of Historic Annapolis. Back at home, friends and family are welcome at our annual bull and oyster roast. By month’s end, we’ll be ready to break out the games and treats for the January birthday bash. We’ll be having a blast this month and we look forward to seeing you!

  • December 2022 Resident Calendar

    December 2022 Resident Calendar

    The holidays are happening here at the Annapolitan! The time is never better for the Nutcracker Ballet; residents, families, and friends all are welcome for the mini-performance at Maryland Hall on 12/7. Next, we’re very lucky to have Vinyl Libations, a vivacious listening party with holiday tunes spun by resident DJ Larry. At mid-month we arrive merrily at the Annapolis Mall for some holiday shopping.
    As Christmas nears, a luminous beckoning! We head out for Lights on the Bay. Friends and family are welcome to come enjoy lunch with us on Christmas Eve, when we’ll serve a delightful holiday meal with a side of good cheer. With the month and the year nearly ended, our New Year’s Eve-ish (and birthday) celebration on December 30 wraps up the season with a champagne toast for everyone!
    All of us at The Annapolitan wish you a very safe, happy and healthy holiday season!

  • November 2022 Resident Calendar

    November 2022 Resident Calendar

    November gets going with a shopping trip to Target: get the goodies for fall (and maybe a start on holiday shopping). Mid-month, we’ve got lunch out at Gordon Biersch, a birthday bash, and a movie matinee. Then, get ready for Thanksgiving at the Annapolitan. Friends and family are welcome to join us for fabulous feast!

    November also includes one of our most special events, our annual Veterans Day program. During this moving program, we honor our resident veterans and those who supported them at home. Friends and family are welcome to attend.

  • October 2022 Resident Calendar

    October 2022 Resident Calendar

    October means it’s time to get spooky! But first, there is other good stuff: we have a great start to the month as we go see a ballet, go shopping, and go savor great food and good times at Founder’s Tavern. Then join us for German style snacks and goodies at Oktoberfest. (And enjoy a glorious serenade from an oompah band!)
    The ghouls and goblins step in at the end of the month for an Addams Family movie matinee and a hauntingly delightful Halloween party for the ages – all ages! Residents and grandkids and staff kids, too, are welcome for a Happy Halloween bash. See you there!

Very caring staff and friendly residents. Small family feel. Clean and well kept. Don't come here - it should continue to be a secret.

We moved our mom here about three weeks ago from a place that was more expensive and not very caring. Annapolitan Assisted Living is a hidden GEM! This place is organized, caring, spectacular! In less than a month our mom is smiling again, out of her room doing activities again, and she is even playing the piano again! The nurses are wonderful and caring. The director is amazing. Most workers have been here for over 7 years, and you can tell they enjoy their jobs. The dining hall is great, and we just love them all! We are so glad that someone told us about this gem of a place, otherwise, they don't advertise and they don't spend extra money doing it because they aren't a corporation. What a lovely place! Thank you!

Look no further, this assisted living home is amazing! My mother lived in an assisted living facility prior to moving to Annapolitan Assisted Living, and while we are thankful that her prior facility kept her safe and cared for, her former assisted living experience was no comparison to the wonderful experience she has had at the Annapolitan. My mom has lived here for almost three years and I am always impressed by how professional the staff is, and how kind they are to my mother. Additionally, the activities director always has terrific parties for the residents and the residents’ family and friends, and they take residents on outings to restaurants, parks, and even Bowie Baysox baseball games. During the COVID pandemic, the facility manager was absolutely terrific in balancing the health needs of residents with their emotional need to see family and friends, and implemented common sense precautions to protect residents. The entire staff is top-notch, friendly and caring. If you are looking for a place for yourself or your loved one, the Annapolitan is a terrific choice!
The very best Staff and Facility! We looked at several in the area. The care they provide is wonderful!.. The food is excellent. Thank you. We rest easy knowing our Father is in the best AssustedLiving home.. a

At this Thanksgiving time of year, our family has much to be thankful for, not the least of which was our decision four years ago to choose The Annapolitan as Dad’s new residence. Dad is now 105 years old and is extremely happy in his surroundings. There is not a doubt in our minds that Dad’s happiness is solely due to the care, compassion, and respect he receives from the dedicated staff and management. I have written two or three previous reviews so that other families can make the right choice for the care of their loved ones. Those reviews have been equally balanced between the staff’s excellence and that of The Annapolitan’s management, but this time I want to commend, applaud, and extend our gratitude more specifically to Jim Thompson, the Director. By anyone’s measure, by any standard, I do not think there could be a better director of an assisted living facility. The quality and consistency of care over the four years of Dad’s residency has been unwavering and above reproach, and is indicative of Jim’s skills. He is kind, calm, and attentive to residents and family alike, yet maintains a professional demeanor that inspires confidence. His understanding, response, and communication during the current Covid-19 crisis is to be applauded, yet I think he does not get enough credit. Most people probably wouldn’t realize the number of masters that Jim has been serving this year: the Health Department, the Governor’s regulations, his residents, his staff, his families, and, of course, the Virus. Even after the most recent round of on-site testing, which resulted in a very unexpected 32 “Positives,” Jim had every person retested within eight hours. Every one of those 32 retests came back as “Negative.” Jim and The Annapolitan have had in impeccable record of performance and communication during a very unpredictable and uncertain time. Our family is very grateful. In closing I want to send a message to my own family members…If I ever need assisted care, PLEASE check me into “Hotel Annapolitan.” Marion Frost

Words cannot express my appreciation for Annapolitan Assisted Living during my dad's stay of almost 2 years. The staff is top notch as is the management. It is true what the reviews are saying. Annapolitan AL is a great place, good food, fun parties, outings and more. My dad was so very happy there. Also, we as a family were happy that he had a safe and loving environment that included us any time day or night. I was very concerned when he had to be moved to the memory care unit. I quickly learned that the advice I was given (that it was time) was spot on. Although he was not in memory care for very long due to a lung illness and a stroke he received excellent care from the staff. They worked tirelessly to make him comfortable and I will be forever grateful. Part of the sadness of losing my dad is that I will miss seeing on a regular basis all of the folks that helped our family to make his last years great years. Don't overlook this place in your search for excellent care and an extended group of family and friends!

Respite Care for My Dad: This place is awesome! Everyone is really kind and helpful. My dad was skeptical at first but found the place to be really nice. It is spotlessly clean with none of the smells you find at other places. Jim worked with me to get him registered and all the required paperwork prior to him checking in. I love this place and will keep them in mind for upcoming respite care needs and any long term care needs that may arise! What a hidden gem! Oh, and the pictures you see are true to date - none of the styling that other places have and when you arrive it looks totally dated and dirty and old!

The Annapolitan is now my home. I'm happy here. There are a lot of activities. The staff encourages me to press the button on my pendant any time I need help. It is after all assisted living. They make sure that the residents get their medicine on time. More later when I have time.
