Being a Caregiver for Amada (which I have been for about two years now) is not just a job.
For myself - having already worked for over thirty years with people in need from all walks of life, (in various roles of counselling, including: probation officer, psychotherapist, family therapist and life coach) being a part of Amada's Mission of the Heart is one of the honors of my life. I could type for hours about the great people of genuine Good Will in this company. Beginning with the management team (which can not be beat for their intelligence, dedication, commitment to staff, clients and the client's families, and to their individual soul's mission to extend love and comfort to others. ((Victoria - the lead Angel - only hires people of solid character. My fellow caregivers - while we are of course different ages, different personalities, have different backgrounds, work different amounts of hours...and naturally have our own lives -including every day challenges and obligations - to a person...every other caregiver I've met on the Amada team exudes the compassion I would want to see if they were taking care of my parents. Really and truly - we are talking about an extraordinary great group of people. here. A diverse group, as I say (and believe is a good thing for any "team") for sure - but all working in the same frequency of love to do everything we can for our many (and also diverse) clients. I've witnessed caregivers, more times than I can count, going way beyond the 'call of duty' to provide comfort, reassurance and the best, most practical care possible to their beloved clients - many, if not most of whom would not be able to stay in their homes if not for the Amada team. And its simply par for the course - if and when necessary - for Victoria herself - or any of the other, incredibly competent office staff members - to drop everything and hurry to cover for any caregiver who may have an emergency preventing them from getting to a client's house on time or whatever. I know I probably sound biased - like maybe like I'm praising them a bit to much. But I'm old enough, experienced enough and dedicated enough to understanding and helping others, in alignment with my own heart - to recognize a kind soul when I meet them. If Amada was a sports team, their mascot would be a strong and mighty HEART. It truly is a beautiful company. - so valuable, so needed and so deeply appreciated by our clients:) Committed, collectively, to a purpose that I think beats all other missions - simply Caring for Those in Need. Its not a "job" to have the privilege and opportunity to help others, especially the most frail among us, in a time of need. Its my honor...And Amada's reason for existing.
I have been with Amada Senior Care Central Pa since January of 2019 . There is not much I do not enjoy about working here, as a caregiver and now as the scheduler. Management team has become part of my inner circle and I have grown while working here.
Thank you, Amada and Care Director Victoria -- you were amazing in our time of need! You set up care within 24-hours, and you provided us with the most amazing overnight assistant, Melissa. Your company provides attentive care and special angels such as Melissa. Each of your staff walked us through the learning process as we cared for our Dad in his final days. Thank you for easing his transition process, and for providing us with the support we dearly needed.
Just like most businesses that's run by people, this one is also so yes it's not going to be perfect 100% of the time, but the people managing us the caregivers really do try the best they can. Not just for the caregivers but their clients as well.
Communication is one of the things i know Amada is great at
Working with everyone the best they can.
Amada Senior Care came into my life through a recommendation from a family member. While still in my 60’s, I’d been struggling with multiple surgeries due to an infection in a knee replacement. I received a cement spacer in the knee and was non-weight bearing for 5 months. I was terrified I’d have to spend much of that time in a facility away from my home, family and dog. Not so, thanks to the wonderful help I received from Amada! It was a win-win solution. They were everything I needed to be able to stay in my own home. The director did a fabulous job of pairing me with gals that brightened my days and filled my every need, and also our dog’s! I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to call on them again.
