Homecare for Your Loved One
For many families in Suffolk these days, times are hard but we endure as best we can for our families. And sometimes that may mean caring for an elderly parent who can no longer stay at home all by themselves without some help. But now you’re not limited to either choosing to have her live in a nursing home that’s too expensive or too far away for you to visit regularly. Instead, your elderly parent can still stay in the house they love, in comfort and in safety. That’s possible because now you have new options in home care.
Home Care: Professionally Trained, Compassionate and Trustworthy Caregivers
Now you have the option of receiving the help of dedicated and highly trained caregivers who can visit the home of your elderly parent. Our caregivers aren’t impersonal home aides who briskly do their jobs. On the contrary, they’re more like friends who just happen to have the special skills and knowledge that can help aging loved ones in their daily tasks.
Their assistance can take so many forms. One important task is that they can be there to remind your elderly loved ones in Suffolk to take their necessary medications at the appointed times. They can help your parents cook delicious and nutritious meals, help do the laundry, and assist with the various chores. And these caregivers aren’t just helpers. They’re friends who form tight bonds of friendship so that your parents can feel comfortable receiving the assistance they need. It’s more than just about providing assistance. It’s about providing friendly companionship. Their visits to your parents’ house can relieve them from some of the more arduous chores, while your concerns about their comfort and their safety are reassured as well.

Suffolk is an independent city located in the U.S. state of Virginia. As of the 2014 census, the estimated population was 86,806. It is the largest city in Virginia by area as well as the 14th largest in the country.
Suffolk is located in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area which also includes the independent cities of Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach, as well as other smaller cities, counties, and towns of Hampton Roads. With miles of waterfront property on the Nansemond and James River, present day Suffolk was formed in 1974 after consolidating with Nansemond County and the towns of Holland and Whaleyville.
Suffolk was founded by English colonists in 1742 as a port town on the Nansemond River in the Virginia Colony. Originally known as Constant’s Warehouse, for John Constant, Suffolk was renamed after Royal Governor William Gooch’s home of Suffolk, a county in East Anglia, England. Before European contact, indigenous American tribes lived in the region for thousands of years. At the time of English settlement, the Nansemond Indians lived along the river. In the early colonial years, the English cultivated tobacco as a commodity crop, but later turned to mixed farming. It became the county seat of Nansemond County in 1750.
Early in its history, Suffolk became a land transportation gateway to the areas east of it in South Hampton Roads. Before the American Civil War, both the Portsmouth and Roanoke Railroad and the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad were built through Suffolk, early predecessors of 21st century Class 1 railroads operated by CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern, respectively. Other railroads and later major highways followed after the war.
Suffolk became an incorporated town in 1808. In 1910, it incorporated as a city and separated from Nansemond County. However, it remained the seat of Nansemond County until 1972, when its former county became the independent city of Nansemond. In 1974, the independent cities of Suffolk and Nansemond merged under Suffolk’s name and charter.
Peanuts grown in the surrounding areas became a major industry for Suffolk. Notably, Planters’ Peanuts was established in Suffolk beginning in 1912. Suffolk was the ’birthplace’ of Mr. Peanut, the mascot of Planters’ Peanuts. For many years, the call-letters of local AM radio station WLPM stood for World’s Largest Peanut Market.
