Amada Senior Care Twin Cities

Joe Castle and Greg Getchell

Greg Getchell and Joe Castle, owners of Amada Senior Care Twin Cities, have learned through their professional healthcare careers as well as their personal experiences that it can be incredibly difficult to find quality, in-home senior care or expert guidance on how to pay for home care. They are determined to change this for their Twin Cities Minnesota neighbors in Andover, Blaine, Bloomington, Burnsville, Chaka, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, Edina, Lakeville, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Prior Lake, Saint Bonifacioius, Savage, Shakopee, Shoreview, Waconia, White Bear Lake, and surrounding Twin Cities communities.

Greg and Joe offer a combined 45 years of healthcare industry experience that encompasses post-acute care for seniors who need at-home assistance following a stroke or other neurovascular condition, an orthopedic surgery, or a long-term rehabilitation stay at a skilled nursing facility.

As Greg puts it, “We have built a career in healthcare over decades. More recently, our involvement in the post-acute treatment of stroke patients opened our eyes to the need for quality in-home care. Having witnessed the aging of our own parents and extended family members has also made us keenly aware that, inevitably, someday we or someone we love will be in need of home care. At Amada Senior Care Twin Cities, our mission is to provide you and your loved ones with the best possible senior care through our trained and compassionate caregivers.”

Amada Twin Cities is a veteran-owned company, with Joe having served as a US Navy corpsman. “Our Amada Twin Cities team is proud to assist our veterans and spouses as needed, whether it be in-home care or guidance on VA Aid and Attendance benefits for eligible veterans who can apply for this resource that could cover many of the costs associated with in-home care,” says Joe.

To Joe, Greg and the rest of our Amada Twin Cities team, providing quality in-home care requires much more than simply helping a senior or client with basic activities of daily living like cooking and bathing. We believe it is essential that we enrich our clients’ lives on a daily basis. To do this, we get to know each client personally so that we can identify the most meaningful ways to brighten their days. This could mean reading aloud from Grandpa’s favorite book, helping Mom get her hair “just right,” or setting up a time for Nana to meet her grandkids at the neighborhood park. We seek opportunities like this because we feel that bringing our clients joy is just as important as helping them stay safe.

In addition to providing superior home care, we at Amada Twin Cities also offer senior housing advisory and placement services, financial counseling to help our clients find the best way to pay for care, and even direct advocacy with long-term care insurance carriers. We realize that every family’s journey through senior care is different, and we walk beside them every step of the way—because you’ll never feel alone when you’re part of the Amada Twin Cities family.

Grateful hearts ♥️ ♥️♥️

Grateful for Amada because when the pandemic hit, I couldn’t find placement for my foundation internship for social work but Greg and Kay openly welcome me and help me gain better knowledge of the company, community and services provided. Even though my internship was unpaid but the team at Amada made it their duty to help pay for gas when I would drive to see clients in their homes and that was the best I could have ever ask for. I love working at Amada.

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 Twin Cities 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 Twin Cities has years of experience with senior care in Andover, Blaine, Bloomington, Burnsville, Chaka, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, Edina, Hennepin County, Lakeville, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Prior Lake, Saint Bonifacioius, Savage, Shakopee, Shoreview, Waconia, White Bear Lake, 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 Twin Cities 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 in senior living. 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 For Minnesota

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 Twin Cities, 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.

How is Aid and Attendance Eligibility Determined?

1. Information About Your Military Service

  • A minimum of 90 days of active duty.
  • At least one day of active military duty during wartime.
  • Must not have been dishonorably discharged from your service.

2. Personal Care Needs Requirements

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

3. Income Review

  • 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. Asset Determination

  • The VA will determine an acceptable threshold for applicants’ assets.
  • Determination of financial assets will depend upon age and financial need.

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:

  • More in-home care.
  • The community of their choice.
  • Benefits paid monthly with no repayment required.
  • Benefits are paid directly to claimants by the United States Treasury and are tax-free.

"Thank you, Zoe, Greg and Kay for helping me give my husband his wish in being at home. You were such a blessing. God bless you as you continue to bless other families."
