Amada Senior Care North Shore

Jennifer Novy, owner of Amada Senior Care North Shore, has dedicated her professional and personal life to caring for seniors. As a life-long Chicagoan, she now uses her senior care experience to help neighbors in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Glen View, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding communities live independently and maintain a high quality of life.

Jenny says, “I have a masters in gerontology as well as a masters in therapeutic recreation, and I’ve been working with seniors across Illinois for the past 20 years. I feel very fortunate that older adults have always been a part of my life: I even knew my great-grandparents and my great-aunts. Most importantly, both of my grandparents on my mother’s side and on my father’s side played a huge role in my life. In fact, my grandma and grandpa lived just down the street—literally, six doors down from me—and I was fortunate to help care for them when they were coming to the ends of their lives.”

“More recently, we lost my father-in-law and my mother-in-law, both to cancer. They were so young, and we were not ready. But we were able to bring hospice caregivers into their home, and they made such a difference in the care both Mom and Dad received. They worked with us to provide comfort, and they made Mom and Dad’s lives better. They made our lives better, too.”

Now, Jenny and her team at Amada North Shore wish to provide the same level of compassion and care for other seniors and their families. As Jenny says, “I really have a passion for working with seniors, and I really want to make a difference in your life—for you and your loved ones.

Our home-care aides do so much more than assist seniors with activities of daily living. They help seniors maintain their independence and continue doing what they’ve done their whole lives. And if home is no longer the best option for a senior, Jenny and our team will help families find the perfect place to meet all of their loved one’s needs.

At Amada North Shore, senior care has always been a family endeavor and we can’t help but treat each client and his or her loved ones like one of our own. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and let our family take care of yours.

Fantastic, Personal And Reliable Care

Jenny Novy’s team at Amada made caring for our mother and helping her become more independent a priority. A truly fantastic group of caregivers are making her recovery from a stroke less difficult and helping our whole family through the process. The team cares for our mother in a compassionate way in a chaotic environment with three small children in our home and are able to keep her safe and comfortable while pushing her to get stronger each day. Every member of our family loves the care team. Jenny made sure she had the right team for our needs and only introduced high quality caregivers into our home. We highly recommend Amada North Shore and know they won’t let you down.

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 North Shore 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 North Shore has years of experience with senior care in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Glen View, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding 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 North Shore 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 North Shore, 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.

  • Applicant must currently require assistance with activities of daily living, such as walking, eating, toileting, or dressing.

3. Income

  • Majority of applicant’s income must currently be spent on care expenses.
  • The percentage of income currently spent on care will determine the benefits they receive.

4. Assets

How VA Aid and Attendance Benefits can Help You:

Through the use of VA benefits, seniors gain more financial flexibility for their care plans and potential placements. This may include:

  • Benefits paid monthly with no repayment required.
  • Benefits are paid directly to claimants by the United States Treasury and are tax-free.
