In-Home Senior Care in Lehigh Valley
Ed Duborg, owner of Amada Senior Care Lehigh Valley, understands that to provide the best quality of senior care it is necessary to support an entire family, not just a single client. He has seen firsthand the emotional and physical strain that often comes with taking care of an ill or elderly loved one, and realizes that the pace many families keep while trying to care for a senior is simply not sustainable.
As Ed recalls, “I remember my mother, who was already taking care of five kids, trying to care for my grandmother who was suffering from diabetes and rapidly declining health. It was a lot for her to take—so much so that it became a burden she could no longer bear all by herself. She needed help. We ended up moving my grandmother into an assisted living community when my mother was unable to handle her care.”
Now, Ed strives to alleviate similar challenges facing beloved seniors and their families residing throughout the Lehigh Valley area. Ed says, “At Amada, we see people like my mother every day. People who are working, people who have kids … and they barely have enough time to go see their parents, nevermind provide them with the care they need. At Amada, we provide the non-medical, in-home care seniors like my grandmother needed to be able to continue living at home. We help with bathing, meal preparation, shopping, medication reminders, and more—all the little things that add up to the ability to enjoy a good quality of life.”
As we know through personal experience, having a beloved senior well-cared for not only affords their loved ones peace of mind, but also allows them to continue filling the family roles they have always held. This is why each of our home-care aides at Amada Lehigh Valley is dedicated to caring for each client as though they were a member of their own family.
In addition to in-home care, the team at Amada Lehigh Valley can assist families with all of their senior care needs. Whether we are guiding a senior through the search for the ideal assisted living environment, helping families find the best way to pay for care, or simply listening as our clients vent their frustrations, our clients always know they can count on their Amada family.
Amada Caregivers are Trained to Provide Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as:
Meal Preparation, Feeding
Most Non-Medical Assistance
If you or your loved one could use assistance with these or other activities of daily living, we invite you to contact us today for a free Care Needs Consultation with an experienced member of the Amada Senior Care Lehigh Valley team. Our trained and compassionate caregivers provide the highest-quality, in-home care to seniors living in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Phillipsburg and nearby communities. We know that each of our clients has unique needs, desires, and budgets, and we are able to customize a care plan ideal for each situation.
Our personal involvement doesn’t simply end with caregiver placement. We also monitor our caregivers and regularly check in with clients and their families to ensure that we are doing all we can to help them live safer, happier and more fulfilled lives.
Review Policies and Verify Benefits
Long-term care insurance can help you or your loved one get the senior care you deserve, but it’s important that you understand your policy and what it entitles you to. We will help you make sense of your LTCi policy and verify your benefits so you can be sure you are using them to your greatest advantage.
Process Claims and Submit Paperwork
The experts at the Amada LTCi Resource Center will walk you through the completion of claims forms and other paperwork, which can help you get quality senior care more quickly.
Your Personal LTCi Advocates
Members of our Amada family never need to feel stuck waiting on hold to speak with a representative of their LTCi carrier. We have built professional relationships with most carriers and administrators, and are happy to call our contacts directly to advocate for you.
Benefit Assignments and Payment Monitoring
We will help you use your LTCi benefits most effectively by assigning them to a care plan specific to your unique needs. We can also take over payment monitoring or even bill your LTCi carrier directly, so you have one less thing to worry about.
For the members of our team at Amada Senior Care Lehigh Valley, providing in-home senior care is much more than just a job. It is a fulfillment of our personal goal to enrich the lives of our clients at every level. Whether it is helping a client to adjust his or her care plan, engaging in an activity or hobby a client likes, sharing a friendly word with a family member, or preparing a meal that tastes like home to a client, we truly enjoy what we do—and it shows.

Loving caring responsible peoples youncan count on
Cheryl is fantastic! We would be hard pressed to find someone so caring towards our Mom. She is thoughtful, kind, and extremely competent. We are grateful to have her helping our Mom live with dignity.
Aging brings its own set of challenges, specifically a change in independence and needs. Vulnerability and uncertainty are just two of the experiences both the senior and his or her family may have when decisions must be made about in-home care. Our parents and grandparents have the right to continue to live safely, comfortably, and have needs even outside of those related to daily living and activities (ADLs) met—all with respect, encouragement, dignity, and warmth. When time spent caring for a loved one increases, family caregiving efforts can drain time and energy, interfere with jobs, and wreak havoc with emotions which run high. Because we’re experts at what we do in providing at-home care in the Lehigh Valley area, we remove the burden for you by providing rigorously screened, highly skilled, dedicated caregivers.
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.
This is an emotional decision for everyone involved, and our goal at Amada Senior Care in Lehigh Valley 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 Lehigh Valley has years of experience with senior care in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Phillipsburg and nearby communities. 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 Lehigh Valley 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
