Co-owner Jackie Myrick wanted to provide an inviting location for senior citizens and disabled people to be able to interact and thrive.

“We want Candie’s Place to feel like a home away from home,” she said. “Participants and their loved ones should feel special and safe there.”

Candie’s Place has capacity for about 35 daily participants. They are part of the Noble Care LLC community-based group homes family. There are currently two Noble Care group homes in Suffolk.

“The health and welfare of our senior population is important to our community,” Suffolk Mayor Linda T. Jonson stated in a press release announcing the business’ opening. “We are pleased to have Candie’s Place Adult Day Support provide a unique and important service in Suffolk.”
