Quality Senior Care

Our Story

Lillie Mae Thompson was a well known minister and entrepreneur from Hartsville, South Carolina. About 1997, she grew ill and moved to Elkridge, Maryland live with her daughter. As her conditioned worsened, her doctors recommended she find an assisted living. Lillie Mae's financial resources were limited, thus so were her options for senior care. Her daughter finally located small retirement homes willing to accept Lillie Mae, only to be disappointed poor quality of care. Her daughter decided to license her own home for Assisted Living and ensure her mother received the finest nursing care possible in a place that looked, felt, and smelled like home!

Only qualified individuals, who prove they can meet and exceed the expectations of our clients, are hired to provide care. With such staff, Lillie Mae maintained quality of life for over 12 years at New Life Assisted Living. She lived through five strokes, diabetes, hypertension, and congestive heart failure. Lillie Mae Thompson passed away peacefully on Thanksgiving Eve, 2009. Nevertheless, New Life Assisted Living still thrives today to offer the same quality senior living at affordable prices. 

In 2013, the founder's son was promoted to CEO. He continues to oversee operations as the assisted living has expanded from Elkridge to Ellicott City, Jessup, Brookeville, and Sykesville. Alvin believes every resident at New Life deserves the same great care that was awarded to Lillie Mae.
