Flexible Home Care that is Easy to Start

We know you probably think starting home care can be complicated. We make it easy! Our innovative business approach makes starting easy as 1, 2, 3.

First, we start by gladly answering all your questions, and making sure you understand the start. Stay assured that our flexible approach is hard to beat. During this step we collect your information to start the care. Then we collect your form of payment and agreement, and you are ready to begin.

We know needs change, and too much or little support can affect the overall outcome. That’s why all we ask for is twenty-four hours’ notice for any schedule changes. You can start and stop your service anytime, without the burden of fees or penalties.

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.


Thank you for the magical help you provided to my Hebrew Home client on Christmas Eve.

Susan L., Geriatric Care Manager

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.

Thank you for working so hard to find the perfect male caregivers for this weekend, on such short notice.

Dr. R., Rockville, MD

I had a superb experience with SmithLife Homecare. They instantly accommodated 2 doctor mandated schedule changes without raising a fuss. I recommend SmithLife Homecare to everyone.

William G.

We've hired three companies in the past and this was the best. Much better prices, easier to work with and the caregivers were all very nice.

Martha E.

We had an older family member coming in town for a wedding and worked with SmithLife to make sure she had a professional caregiver for several days while in the area. From initial contact through my family member's departure from DC, our experience with SmithLife was top notch.

Derek M.

We really appreciate the care, professionalism, and extraordinary kindness everyone associated with the Smith Life community repeatedly demonstrates.

Steven L., Rockville, MD

I was pleased with the services of SmithLife Homecare. They were easy to work with and provided good assistance when I needed it.

Myrna S.

We have had support from Smithlife for the past few years to care for our Mother at her independent living facility. They have been very good to work with, always meeting our needs, especially on very short notice, and their caregivers have been excellent. The administrative staff has always been available and very responsive to any requests we would have, day or night, and made sure the needs of my Mother were always their priority.

Steve K.

My mother has had wonderful caregivers provided by SmithLife Homecare. The office is extremely responsive (within hours) when my mom got sick and needed an aide. It is wonderful to be able to get help quickly, when and only when needed.

Linda H.

My 95-year-old mother had to leave her home of 67 years & moved to the Ring House. We set her up with a Smith Life aide & the experience was excellent. She loves all the aides and feels safe & protected. This is a huge life change & we couldn't have dealt with everything without these ladies.

Eileen C.

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.

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

Curtis L., Rockville, MD

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

Personalized Senior Home Care Solutions

SmithLife Homecare is proud to enable many seniors to preserve their independence for longer than may have been possible otherwise. We recognize that every patient is an individual, and therefore, we have developed a unique approach to caring. At the start of your service, we assign you to a Client Liaison, who acts as an extension of you within our team to advocate, administer, and consistently refine your service towards perfection. With guidance of your liaison, our team guides your aides help ensure the highest quality of care.

Empowering Aging in Place: Nurturing Independence with Care at Home

Helping loved ones maintain dignity and independence as they age-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 adults.

In-home care for seniors and the elderly is a fantastic option in such cases. Our senior care services can provide vital assistance and support to the elderly and vulnerable, enabling them to maintain an independent life at home. By working with SmithLife Homecare, you can ensure that your loved one receives the support they need to maintain their independence while remaining at home.

We offer a wide range of services, including assistance with personal care, mobility, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and transportation. Our aides also provide companionship and emotional support, which can be particularly important for seniors 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.

Our specialists work as part of a care team to help your loved one maintain their sense of autonomy and control over their life, instead of being forced to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility. Let us help your loved one continue living in the familiar surroundings of their own home, with the added support of a caring and compassionate caregiver.

Our Expertise

Our partnership with Charles E. Smith Life Communities means we also have vast access to resources throughout our community, as well as expertise in geriatrics.

We Believe

Expectations are meant to be exceeded.

For nearly two decades, SmithLife Homecare has been like family for our clients in and around the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Our caregivers aren’t simply providing services—they are making connections.
