He’s committed to delivering outstanding senior care, as it will generate a ripple effect to improve the lives of the beloved senior’s family members. As John says, “Our senior clients constantly inspire us and offer us their wisdom. Our goal at Amada Hattiesburg-Gulfport is to show seniors how much we value them by ensuring they are able to live with dignity. Each and ever day, we find meaningful ways to enrich their lives.”

In John’s eyes, a community’s elders are its foundation, so it only makes sense to make the commitment to serve our cornerstone generation. He and his team at Amada Hattiesburg-Gulfport have been dong this for years. Thanks to their passion and dedication, the team has made Amada one of the most sought-after and respected senior care companies in the region. John and his team members serve seniors and their families in Hattiesburg, Gulfport, Laurel, Biloxi, Bay St. Louis, Ocean Springs, Diamondhead, Pascagoula and Picayune cities, and communities and neighborhoods beyond.

John’s compassion for senior clients is based on his 25 years of experience in healthcare administration and management. His team serves senior clients and their families by employing trained caregivers to provide personalized care in their home environment, whether it be a residence, hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center or other senior facility. They understand it is an honor and a reflection of trust for clients to invite them into their lives and their homes. They strive to provide each client with compassionate care and companionship that meets each senior’s individual needs.

Amada Hattiesburg-Gulfport’s team members believe it is important to truly enrich the lives of seniors by going beyond the to-do list  of cleaning and preparing meals and getting to know each client personally. They understand this will help them impact their lives in a much more profound way. This might take shape as arranging a play date with the grandchildren, walking with a client to visit a neighbor’s garden, or finding their favorite books to read to them. After entering our clients’ homes as strangers, our caregivers quickly become part of our senior clients’ families.

Extraordinary People

Our several months-long relationship with Amada Jackson was exceptional. The people, from ownership to caregiver, provided an incredible quality of services. They were thoughtful, kind, thorough, professional, compassionate, and treated us like family. Amada was always flexible and willing to adjust schedules and caregivers based on our unique needs. As the needs increased, Amada was there to provide more service, provided incredible advise, increased hours as needed, and sent additional caregivers when asked to in order to make our Mom comfortable at home. As is the case with many families experiencing end-of-life decisions for aging parents, friends, neighbors, we were new to the process, and knew little about resources available to us. Amada management was always willing and able to provide advise, resources, and knowledge—often when those options discussed would have meant lessening their role and therefore their profits. We could not have handled the last several months of Mom's life with the extraordinary care provided by Amada. These people love what they do, and it shows in their work every day. The peace of mind they brought us by providing absolutely exceptional in-home care for our Mom is something we will never forget, and the relationships developed during this time has resulted in lasting friendships.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are in this together and really appreciate your trust in our team. John Merrell

Senior Housing Advising

When seniors or their loved ones begin to feel that they require more support than in-home care and assistance with basic ADLs, it may be time to consider transitioning to an assisted living community.

Senior Housing Guidance and Assistance
Senior Care Housing Options

This is an emotional decision for everyone involved, and our goal at Amada Senior Care in Hattiesburg-Gulfport is to guide families through the placement process with wisdom, empathy, and competence.

For some seniors, an assisted living community, typically offering non-complex medical services, may be a good fit. Others may require a bit more support and may be better served in a nursing home or different type of care community.

The team at Amada Senior Care Hattiesburg-Gulfport has years of experience with senior care in Hattiesburg, Gulfport, Laurel, Biloxi, Bay St. Louis, Ocean Springs, Diamondhead, Pascagoula and Picayune cities, and communities and neighborhoods beyond. As a result, we have deep knowledge of all local care communities and can make sure our clients find the ideal placement to suit their care needs, locations, lifestyles, and budgets.

We also rely on our extensive experience to help our clients make full use of all benefits available to them, including veterans’ benefits and Long-Term Care Insurance benefits. The costs of assisted living may intimidate many families, but we can help them make financial decisions with confidence. To further ease cost concerns, the Amada Hattiesburg-Gulfport team is pleased to offer its placement services free of charge.

When in-home care is no longer ideal for our clients, we are honored to guide them through this next phase. Our specialty is referring seniors to the right community or placement for them, which may include:

  • Assisted living communities
  • Large and small communities
  • Independent living communities
  • Board and care homes
  • Adult family homes
  • Senior care homes
  • Skilled nursing facilities
  • Alzheimer/dementia communities

Veterans Assistance Programs

Many of our veterans, their spouses, and their families may not be aware of their potential eligibility for financial assistance from the government. At Amada Senior Care Hattiesburg-Gulfport, we are dedicated to helping individuals eligible for VA Aid and Attendance benefits and other forms of financial support take full advantage of these resources.
