We recently started having SmithLife aides, and we are so pleased with both the caring of the aides and the dedication of the other SmithLife staff to helping us as much as they can. They take care of administrative details and are very responsive to any additional needs we have.

Barbara W.

Their motto seems to be ‘we're here for you’ and she truly lives that philosophy every day.

Curtis L., Rockville, MD

As I recovered for hip replacement, I had 2 caregivers who were excellent: timely, caring competent, willing to do anything I needed. The agency exceeded my expectations.

Judy S.

I would highly recommend SmithLife care for anyone looking for additional support for loved ones. The staff is incredible and worked with us to find the right amount of care and was also flexible when making changes. They consistently check in on how things are going and make sure everything is going well. The care providers were incredibly kind and willing to do anything that was asked of them. Couldn't have been happier with our decision to go with SmithLife Homecare.

Seth F.

I had an excellent experience with Smithlife Homecare. Kathleen and her team responded immediately to my request, were very responsive and supportive. Would absolutely recommend this team to anybody.

Davis H.

Their care and service went far beyond the requirements of the job, and we consider all of them to be family.

Jerry S., Washington, D.C.

I have been highly impressed with the quality and reliability of the SmithLife staff. The managerial staff have been very responsive, and customer-oriented. Their aides show up like clockwork.


I enjoyed and would recommend this company for the home care of my parent who needed care after a stroke. When I spoke to Renan he was pleasant and understood my needs, answered all questions and the flexibility of the schedule was a plus.

Serene W.

Committed and excellent health aids

Jeffrey C.

We worked with SLHC to set up care for my mother when she came home from the hospital and a rehabilitation center after a fall. The care needed to be set up very quickly, and SLHC handled this beautifully.

Dana H.

To be sure, “Bella" is caring, warm, charming, bright, pleasant, fun and on and on. Always at the ready to be helpful

Cheryl B., Bethesda, MD

In the two and a half years Faustina has been my sister’s aide she has demonstrated unwavering kindness, patience, and professionalism. She gives 150%, every day. I live out of state and it’s a comfort knowing Faustina is there, making sure my sister’s needs are met. She keeps me in the loop; calls my sister on her days off, just to check in. She understands my sister’s special needs and has the remarkable ability to listen and “hear” her. Faustina makes her laugh and smile, even under the most difficult of circumstances. Without her support my sister would not have the quality of life she enjoys. Faustina is our gem!

Mora H.

SmithLife Homecare was a great help to me when I needed to get my 84-year old mom to and from a doctor appointment. All the team members were super-responsive, extremely helpful and reassuring. The employee who actually picked up my mom and drove her was prompt, warm and friendly, and made my mom feel completely at ease. It was a great service, and I'll definitely be using them again.

Andrew L.

Wonderful experience! My father received excellent care and my family and I received incredible personal service. Everyone was warm, knowledgeable and easy to work with during a difficult time.

Beth H.

Just as valuable to me as her nursing skills was her ability to provide me with companionship during my recovery.

Claire G., Bethesda, MD

Comprehensive Elder Care Solutions with Professional Assistance for Aging in Place

SmithLife Homecare operates out of Rockville, Chevy Chase and Washington, DC, primarily providing senior home care in these areas and throughout Montgomery County. Our home health care agency takes pride in empowering elderly members of our community to maintain their independence and enjoy a higher quality of life, longer than they might have thought possible. We recognize that every patient of ours is an individual. Therefore, we develop a unique approach to elderly care for every single patient. With our senior home health care services, we ensure that your loved ones receive the essential medical support, emotional care, and companionship they need, all from the comfort of their own homes—eliminating the need to move to a care facility.

Helping our loved ones maintain dignity and independence as they are aging in place can be a delicate balancing act. While your elderly relatives may increasingly need help to complete day-to-day tasks, they might still want to live alone. In fact, having the opportunity to do so is of crucial importance to many older Americans. In-home senior care is a fantastic option in such cases. A home care agency like ours can provide vital services and support to the elderly and vulnerable while still enabling them to live an independent life at home.

The home health services we provide are diverse, and we aim to support your loved ones in every facet of their lives. SmithLife Homecare provides high-quality nursing care for adults and seniors who want companion care and for more complex or challenging medical situations. In addition, companion care from caregivers is an option for patients who require a more personalized touch. We specialize in supporting aging in place, stroke recovery, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s , dementia, and hospice care clients in the comfort of their own home. Our home health aides come to your loved one’s address for a regular check-in.

Our range of home care services includes assistance with personal care, health support, mobility, transfers, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and transportation. Our aides also provide companionship and emotional support, which can be particularly important for the elderly who may feel isolated or lonely. Let our dedicated aides ensure your loved ones receive the emotional support and companionship they need to thrive as they age in place.
