Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh

Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh is truly a family business, operated by Joe Spehar, his wife, Amber Spehar, and his sister-in-law, Shelly Spehar. This family has had significant experiences with in-home care for their own loved ones, which is what has motivated them to provide exceptional care for their senior clients in the Pittsburgh area, including McCandless, Penn Hills, Monroeville, Plum, Greensburg, Leechburg, Vandergrift, Valencia, and beyond.

Joe says, “Both of my parents died of cancer. I remember the desperation and the helplessness we felt when we were trying to find home care for them. And I remember the amount of care and love their caregivers provided for them. We simply couldn’t give these caregivers enough hugs, couldn’t give them enough ‘thank-yous.’ And I knew at that time that I wanted to have the opportunity to give back, to do something just like that. Now, that’s what we provide at Amada Greater Pittsburgh. Let our family take care of your family.”

On top of their experiences as a member of a close family coping with the illness of two parents, Shelly Spehar has also worked in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years. Shelly says, “I see what caregivers do to enrich the lives of patients and their families, day after day. At Amada, we’d like to help you find caregivers of this quality. We provide a nurturing, caring environment that allows seniors to remain independent in the comfort of their own home.”

At Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh, we provide non-medical, in-home care, assisted living placement services, advisory services to help clients cover the cost of care, and whatever else your family needs to ease your worries and ensure your loved one is safe, comfortable and thriving.

Because, as you can see, caring for families is what we do best.

LTC Insurance

Thank you so much for helping out my parents. I don't know what I would have done without your expertise and experience working with their insurance company. We would have had know idea what to do or what say to the insurance company about using their policy to pay for care. Its such a relief to know they are in good hands. The care they are receiving has been excellent. I love the family portal that allows me to see how everything is going from afar. I'm so glad we found Amada Senior Care.

Amazing Service!

Thank you AMADA Senior Care for helping a family friend with MS who ended up in the hospital while her children were far away on vacation. Paulett dropped everything and went straight to the hospital to see how she could help. That was unbelievably awesome! Our friend was relaeased from the hospital the next day and your team took her home and cared for her while her family finished their vacation and headed home. What a comfort it was to our friend and her family that she was recieving the care she needed. It could have been a very different story if it hadnt been for you and your team. Thanks again,

Wonderful Care

My mom needed to go on hospice and is bed bound so she couldn't be left alone while we are at work all day. We hired Amada to help take care of her a few days a week so that we didn't have to put her in a facility. The owner has always been very friendly and accommodating and we found him to be very sincere. He matched us with a caregiver very quickly (less than a week). He gave us his cell phone number, responds outside of regular business hours, we are very pleased with the level of service. It has always seemed more than just a business and he has gone out of his way to make a difficult situation easier for my family. My mom (and everyone else) loves the caregiver that comes. She feels very comfortable with her and enjoys spending time with her. She is trust worthy, gentle, and caring and I'd say goes above and beyond what we expected. If she can't come a particular day, there is a backup caregiver that they send so we don't have to worry about no one showing up. Overall they have certainly helped alleviate some of the worries we have about caring for our mother at home and we can entrust them to take good care of my mom when we can't be there ourselves.

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 Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh has years of experience with senior care in McCandless, Penn Hills, Monroeville, Plum, Greensburg, Leechburg, Vandergrift, Valencia, and 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 Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh, 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.

To learn more about Aid and Attendance and other benefits for veterans, please

How is Aid and Attendance Eligibility Determined?

1. Military Service

  • A minimum of 90 days of active duty, with at least one of those days during wartime.
  • Must not have been dishonorable discharged.

2. Personal Care Needs

  • 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

  • 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.
