New home care business starts

Published 10:08pm Friday, March 15, 2013

A Suffolk woman has started her first business for home care.

The agency, Family First Home Care Inc., performs non-medical services for clients such as bathing, dressing, light housekeeping, cooking, transportation to doctor’s appointments and other duties.

The business held a ribbon-cutting March 8, but it has been in business about two months.

“I’ve always been in the medical field since 2004,” said Gena Smith, owner of the business. She holds an associate degree in medical administrative assistance and a bachelor’s degree in health service management.

“We like for our clients to feel like family, and they’re not just a client,” Smith said.

The business is located in 157 N. Main St. on the second floor. Call 539-0716.
