In-Home Care for Your Loved One
Many elderly parents in Sandbridge these days can be full of pride, unable to admit that they can no longer live safely and comfortably all by themselves. They refuse to move into the homes of their anxious children, nor are they willing to go to a nursing home. Instead, they insist on staying in their own house. And that’s why so many families need home care services.
With our friendly and highly trained caregivers, senior family members can still live in their homes without causing the rest of their family any grave concern for their safety and comfort. Worried children are relieved to know that caregivers are there to remind their sometimes forgetful elderly parents to eat right or to take their medications on time. They may need help with various household chores, including taking out the trash, dealing with the laundry and the dishes, and keeping the place neat. In other cases, perhaps the only assistance they need is for travel, when they have to have someone with them to get to the park to enjoy a nice walk, or to more urgent appointments such as to the doctor’s office. For these types of assistance, you can rely on our responsible caregivers to lend a hand when such help is required.
Home Care: Professionally Trained, Compassionate and Trustworthy Caregivers
The goal of Home Helpers Home Care of Virginia Beach is to provide the elderly of Sandbridge with the necessary non-medical assistance they need. But that doesn’t mean that our caregivers are untrained in basic medical care. In fact, they undergo regular training for CPR and first aid, so they can provide immediate care while the emergency medical services are on their way. Our home care aides are even trained to interact properly with senior loved ones who may be beset by Alzheimer’s disease and other similar ailments. It’s our responsibility to make sure that our caregivers develop these rigorous capabilities, and we take our responsibilities seriously.
We also take great pains in ascertaining that our caregivers have the necessary emotional makeup to interact with the elderly. We screen them thoroughly through various interviews and exhaustive background checks, and we also verify their references very carefully. We make sure that our home care aides interact with the seniors with respect, compassion, and friendliness. And we add additional training in people skills to reinforce those emotional traits. We consider our workers as part of our family, and they will regard tour loved family members as part of their family as well. And as an extra layer of security, we bond each and every caregiver before we assign them to their in-house placement.

Sandbridge, in the U.S. state of Virginia, is a coastal community of Virginia Beach, located along the coastline on the Currituck Banks Peninsula at the northern end of the Outer Banks. The Atlantic Ocean is to the east, the Back Bay of the Currituck Sound is to the west, and the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park lie to the south. To the north, Sandbridge borders the U.S. Navy’s Dam Neck facility. Located near the southern end of Sandbridge is Little Island Park, which is managed by the City of Virginia Beach. Sandbridge Beach runs approximately 4.5 miles (7.2 kilometres) from north to south along the oceanfront.
The only public road entrance to the community is Sandbridge Road, which is near the northern end of Sandbridge and connects it to businesses and neighborhoods in the Princess Anne area of Virginia Beach. Local residents used to have the privilege of driving through the adjacent Dam Neck Naval installation (with permit) to shorten their commute. A special guard was posted on the south entrance of the base to admit or deny travelers. However, in the post-9/11 atmosphere the "back-gate" has been closed down for security purposes. A bicycle/pedestrian trail is planned through the Wildlife Refuge which would connect Sandbridge to its nearest neighbors in Lago Mar as well as the shopping and dining centers at Red Mill, Courthouse and beyond.
Sandbridge is known for its somewhat remote location and receives a smaller volume of visitors than the main Virginia Beach resort strip located a few miles to its north. The Virginia Beach EMS Lifeguard Division does protect the water in Sandbridge. They hold four stands at Market Place Beach and ten stands at Little Island Beach. There are four supervising lifeguards who keep constant patrol over the rest of the waters where lifeguards are not permanently stationed. Lifeguards are on duty daily from 0930-1800 Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.
