Amada Senior Care North Shore, Illinois
Caregiving from a Caring Source

Jennifer Novy, owner of Amada Senior Care North Shore, has dedicated her professional and personal life to caring for seniors. A life-long Chicagoan, she uses her extensive senior care experience to help her neighbors in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Lincolnwood, Winnetka, Skokie, Deerfield, Highland Park, Northbrook, Glenview, Park Ridge, Wilmette, Glencoe and Evanston, Elmhurst, Downer’s Grove, Hinsdale and Western Springs live independently in their own homes and maintain a high quality of life.

Jenny says, “I have a master’s in gerontology as well as a master’s in therapeutic recreation, and I’ve been working with seniors across Illinois for the past 25 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 work hard to provide the same level of compassion in-home care services for other seniors and their families. As Jenny says, “I really have a passion for working with seniors, and I want to make a difference in your life — for you and your loved ones.”

Practical and Compassionate In-Home Senior Care

Amada caregivers are trained to provide seniors assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), but Amada North Shore‘s home-care aides do so much more than just help seniors with dressing, bathing, running errands, and the like. Our trained in-home care aides also help North Shore seniors maintain their independence and continue doing what they’ve done their whole lives, from attending social gatherings to engaging in beloved hobbies. When home ceases to be the best option for a senior, Jenny and the Amada North Shore team will help families find the perfect place to meet all of their loved one’s needs.

At Amada North Shore, we know that the best home health and senior care is always a family endeavor. That’s why we go out of our way to treat each one of our adults and senior clients and their loved ones like a member of our own family.

Great job!

I would like to submit this review to thank Amada for providing great services for my mom. From the start Jenny and her team were professional, accommodating and so incredibly nice. Jenny came over with the new caregivers to introduce them to my mom. They asked about her needs and what she was hoping to have help with. They took a tour of the home to see how they could best work with her. The caregivers that came in were respectful, sweet, helpful and professional. When feedback was given, the caregivers were very accepting and positive. The staff took their shoes off when they came in and put a new mask on when they came into the house. They understood my mom's medical condition and took all measures to keep her healthy. I would definitely recommend Jenny and her team to help with your loved ones!

Amanda Senior Care - North Shore

Amanda was a blessing for our family at a time when our dad needed extra care and when it was getting too hard for my mom to keep up. Jenny and her team took wonderful care of my dad. Her personal involvement and dedication to our needs was much appreciated. Jenny goes the extra mile for your family in a time of need. Her love and compassion are her biggest asset. You feel it working with her and her team.

Wonderful Care and Help During this Difficult Time

Thanks to Amada Senior Care owner Jenny Novy for providing caregivers for Rudy. Kosta was such a loving, helpful caregiver to Rudy and Rudy felt so comfortable with him. Rudy is now in hospice care. Jason and I are allowed to visit once a day (each of us going separately). We are grateful to God that we can visit him, hold his hand and tell him how much we love him. Some days he is alert and responds, but most days he just sleeps. It is a great dementia care facility and we feel comfortable with his care there. Again, thank you for all the help duing this difficult time.

Compassionate and Experienced Senior Housing Advising

Sometimes seniors require more support than in-home care and assistance with basic ADLs. When this situation arises, we can help our clients and their families find an ideal placement at a North Shore assisted living community.

Senior Housing Guidance and Assistance
Senior Care Housing Options

We know the choice to move a family member into an assisted care community is often an emotional decision for everyone involved. At Amada Senior Care in North Shore, our goal is to provide families and seniors with the help they need to make the best choice for them. We will walk beside you through the placement process, and you can trust us to offer you wisdom, empathy, and guidance.

For many seniors, a retirement home or assisted living community that offers non-complex medical services might be the right fit. For seniors that need more support for memory care or more complex medical needs, a nursing home might be a better choice. Regardless, we will put our decades of experience with senior care in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Northbrook, Glenview, Park Ridge, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding communities to work for you and your loved ones. We work hard to make sure our clients’ placements suit more than just their care needs, but also their budgets, lifestyles, and locations. We know the cost of assisted living care worries many seniors and their loved ones. We will continue to offer help regarding benefit use — both with LTCi and any veterans’ benefits.

Assisted Living Placement Opportunities for North Shore Seniors

We also offer our placement services to all our clients free of charge, so there’s no need to ever worry about pricing in relation to our senior housing consulting services. We want you to have peace of mind throughout the entire process.

When in-home care no longer suits our clients, we are honored to guide them to the right community or placement, 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
  • And more …

Veterans Assistance Programs and VA Benefits

Sometimes veterans, their spouses, and their families are unaware of VA eligibility and government-provided financial assistance for senior care. At Amada Senior Care North Shore, we help individuals eligible for VA Aid and Attendance benefits find out all they qualify for so they can take full advantage of these hard-earned resources.

If you or a loved one would like to learn more about Aid and Attendance and other benefits for veterans, please

Click here for a Free Veteran’s Care Needs Consultation.

How is Aid and Attendance Eligibility Determined?

1. The Veteran’s Military Service

  • Veterans must have had a minimum of 90 days of active duty, and at least one of those days must have occurred during wartime.
  • Veterans must not have a dishonorable discharge on their record.

2. The Veteran’s Personal Care and Home Care Needs

  • Applicant must  must require current assistance with ADLs, like walking, toileting, dressing, and/or eating.

3. The Veteran’s Income

  • Most of the applicant’s income must currently be spent on home and personal care expenses.
  • The benefits the applicant is eligible to receive will be based on the percentage of income currently spent on care.

4. The Veteran’s Assets

  • It is the VA that will determine the acceptable threshold for applicants’ assets.
  • Determination of financial assets will depend upon applicants’ financial need and age.

How VA Aid and Attendance Benefits Can Help You:

Through the use of VA benefits, veteran seniors and/or their spouses gain more financial flexibility in relation to their care plans and potential placements. This flexibility might include:

  • Being able to afford more in-home care.
  • Being able to move into the care community of their choice.
  • Monthly benefit payments that don’t require repayment.
  • Tax-free benefits that are paid directly to claimants by the United States Treasury.

"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."
