Thank you for the caregivers, Leon and Tamara, who came to help care for my husband in the last days of his life. They were very competent, caring and respectful in the way they treated my husband and myself. My family and I felt very close to both of them.
Amada caregivers were experienced, professional, and caring, while providing much needed assistance doing chores around the house which I could no longer accomplish safely on my own. They helped with the laundry, light housework, bathing and dressing, as well as transporting me to and from medical and therapy appointments, grocery shopping, and preparing meals.
We appreciated Amada’s willingness and flexibility, while working around our ever-changing needs; Caregivers assigned by Dan and the office team were always warm and caring to my husband, Dave, and myself throughout these many months. Caregivers Ashley, Karen, and Becky worked with us as friends, almost family.
We were so pleased with Amada’s services that we have engaged the Richmond office to provide similar service since we relocated to Midlothian, Virginia.
Thanks again, Amada, for being there to assist us.

Amada provides quality assistance to those in need in the community. I was the grateful recipient of their services after a long stay at Chesapeake Future Care from falling down 7 steps and injuring my spine. Dan Homa met with me several times at Future Care to assess my needs, my progress. I worked hard to come home rather than go to an Assisted Living facility.Once home, I had an aide who came weekly to help with downsizing and rearranging closets, kitchen, etc. to accommodate being in a wheelchair and using a walker. She also assisted with putting groceries away, and assembling equipment that was ordered. It was wonderful to have assistance with transport to the doctor, to the lab, to get prescriptions. My friends appreciated not having to take off work to transport me. She waited patiently at doctor appointments and at the DMV when I had to turn in my license rather than renew it. This is a quality organization that provides a much needed assist for anyone with a physical disability or dementia.
Amada Senior Care was so helpful when my dad returned home from rehab following a stroke. My mom had tried several independent caregivers without lasting success before learning about Amada. After meeting both of my parents, owner Dan Homa matched them with the perfect caregiver to meet my dad's needs. Amada was great at working with them to adjust and hone a schedule that fit their changing needs.
My mother in law has been assisted by caregivers from Amada Senior Care for over a year now. I highly recommend them as they have provided excellent service from day one. The owner and office staff held our hand throughout the entire process in the beginning and clearly identified what my MIL needed. They took the time to ask questions and find the right fit for her. More importantly, we adore our caregivers and could not be happier with the support and assistance they give my MIL. They are kind, reliable, patient and knowledgeable. We are thankful to have Amada Senior Care on our side!
Amada Senior Care helped my family tremendously during a recent health crisis with my mom. They provided quality caregivers and were a wealth of information with resources during our time of need. Their response time, communication and attention to our family was impeccable. We are so grateful for all they did to get us through our trying time. Thank you, Amada Senior Care!
I would recommend Amada Senior Care with high praise. They are easy to work with and very caring. Anytime there is a concern, they address the matter quickly. When you have a loved one that is dealing with dementia, communication between the caregivers and the family is paramount. Communication has been fantastic. The caregivers have all been very pleasant and take an interest in the client. They are always willing to help. It has been true blessing to have found Amada Senior Care.
When our parents were due to leave the Rehabilitation Center,we met with the Owner of Amada to discuss our options in terms of care provided, family dynamics, moods, behaviors, expectations. Our meeting was very constructive and we were advised the services that were provided. Mr. Homa, Owner of Amada, met with our parents while they were still living at the rehab center to get a sense of our parent's conditions and to introduce himself, and to explain the services provided by Amada caregivers. During this meeting, Mr. Homa was able to ascertain and realize our parent's resistance to any caregivers in their home. One the first visit to our parent's home, Mr. Homa met with the caregiver that the service would be providing. A nurse was also present to review our parent's medical history, medication and dosages, and to provide an initial examination. He discussed what we expected of his service with us as far as our parent's needs in meal preparation, dressing, and toileting. He and the intended caregiver inspected the home to evaluate how best his caregivers could provide safe care. Once Mr. Homa and the nurse left the caregiver took over our parent's care. Quite often myself or one of the siblings were present to see what we could do to assist the caregiver while caring for them. A book was left at the home so the caregiver would be able to make any notations as to current activity, and so they could easily review what duties they would need to perform during the course of the day. The family requested services from from 10:00am until 6:00 pm eacd day. Before they left the premises, they provided our parent's meals and insured that the medications were dispensed. On occasion a new caregiver would be substituted to stay with our parents. Each time, Mr. Homa was present introduce a new caregiver to our parents and to explain what was expected of them and what services they would need to provide. Initially our caregivers met with resistance from our parents who felt they were perfectly capable of caring for them selves. Nonetheless, the caregiver was always pleasant, patient and treated our parents with respect and sensitivity. Amada caregivers were able to roll with any deviations in daily schedules and situations. Quite often other family members visited in the home and the caregivers discreetly left the family alone to their visits without being intrusive. They always remained in calling distance in the event their services were needed or should any emergency arise. Several times during the week medicare provided a nurse to evaluate our parent's health and to review any changes in medications. The caregiver was always present to ask questions, to provide answers and to see what was being done during that visit so they would be able to make any necessary changes to our parent's care. During the several months Amada caregivers were present in the home, they were patiently tolerant of any opposition our parents presented. Our main caregiver would bring flowers, get special coffee for my father, prepare meals from the fruit and vegetables that were growing in the caregiver's own garden, would make fruit and vegetable shakes from the blender she would bring to the house, and pick up necessary groceries she would need to prepare their meals. My mother was very particular as to how her house was run. Our caregiver learned her various eccentricities and went our of her way to accommodate my mother's expectations. The caregiver would accompany us when we took our parent's for their frequent doctor appointments. She would wait patiently out of earshot during these visits so as not to infringe on their privacy. Mr. Amada was always willing to listen to our concerns, to make suggestions and to ease any apprehensions we had regarding our parent's behavior. He always made the time to promptly return our calls, to listen to our recommendations and to alleviate our anxieties. He never failed to return a call to us within a few hours. As the months progressed, our parents became more tolerant and accepting of the caregiver's role in their lives. Instead of trying to prove they were able to take care of themselves, they finally allowed the caregiver to assist them with toileting, bathing, dressing and home maintenance. If an unknown rash was observed the caregiver would research the particular cause of the rash and would provide the appropriate dressings and ointments. She discussed the the appropriate treatment with a nurse prior to taking any steps in the care of any unusual medical concerns or administering recommended medicatons Time passed and our parent's health deteriorated. With each change in their conditions the caregiver was always able to adapt to the situation and to assist in any way possible. After five months of of watching their health worsen, not once did the caregiverfail to be by their side and to dispense love, sensitivity and comfort.
