In May of 2006, our system of care—anchored by the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington and including all residences and on-site and out-patient medical services—was united under the name Charles E. Smith Life Communities.  

Over the past 10 years, we've expanded our services, particularly with advancements at our Post-Acute Care Center, the opening of two new residences, Landow House and Cohen-Rosen House, and the launch of the ElderSAFE™ Center, a shelter and resource center for victims of elder abuse.

“What truly makes Cohen-Rosen House a loving Jewish home is the people. Every person I have met, from the enthusiastic, caring administrators to the doctors, therapists, nursing staff, to every aide, maintenance worker, and cleaning crew, treats the residents with kindness, courtesy, and respect.”

Cohen-Rosen House provides assisted-living services for 18 residents who require a specialized living environment. The residence received LEED Silver Certification, "the premier mark of achievement in green building" — and many other architectural awards for innovation in design for memory care. Read more »
