I can finally sleep and his caregivers, Melissa and Cecilia couldn't be more wonderful. They are genuinely caring, kind, nurturing, smart professionals who have my dad's best interests at heart! I am grateful to all of you!

Deb Y., Rockville, MD

SmithLife Homecare provided excellent support from scheduling to appointment pick-up. Staff were courteous, caring, and compassionate - the three "C's" that one would expect when caring for a loved one. This organization is highly recommended and their culture is excellent!

Mark X.

When my Mother passed out, her aide from SmithLife immediately performed CPR, and saved her life!

Tracey S., Clarksburg, MD

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.

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

Curtis L., Rockville, MD

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.

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

Dr. R., Rockville, MD

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.

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

Claire G., Bethesda, MD

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'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 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.

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 in-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 homecare 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 care 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, dementia, and hospice care clients. Our home health aides can 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 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.
