Amada Senior Care Southern Delaware
As the owners of Amada Senior Care Southern Delaware, Dow and Renee Juliano have seen through their own personal experiences the difference that compassionate, top-quality care makes in the lives of our clients and their families. Throughout many years serving seniors in the Sussex County and Kent County cities of Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Dover, Milford, Millsboro, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Dewey Beach, Farmington, Harrington, Georgetown, Laurel, Smyrna, Seaford, Selbyville and surrounding communities, Dow and Renee have held firmly to their conviction that every senior deserves to live with respect and dignity.
“Enriching the lives of seniors in our community is the commitment we make to you at Amada Senior Care Southern Delaware,” Dow says. “Our story is probably similar to many of you. Being put into a situation where we needed to care for an aging parent or grandparent who needed help with activities of daily living was how it all began. For me, it was my Grandma, who suffered from a brain tumor and came to live with me for the last year of her life. During that time, I provided help to her with all activities of daily living, as well as sharing much love and emotional support. This experience gave me a true appreciation for what it means to be a caregiver.”
Renee’s awareness of the need for compassionate senior care began when her father started suffering complications from diabetes. He landed in the hospital for several weeks and then upon discharge went to live with his daughter because Renee’s mother was not able to care for him on her own. “We were able to share in providing round-the-clock care for ‘Poppy’ while he lived with us,” says Renee. “Being able to share this journey with Poppy was a gift not only to him but to us as well.
“Both Renee and I were fortunate that we had the time and ability to care for our loved ones,” Dow adds. “But many families aren’t in that situation and need help from individuals who truly understand the care needs of the family member and are able to deliver that care in a compassionate manner.”
Compassionate care by trained and experienced caregivers is what Amada Senior Care is all about. The Amada Southern Delaware team has one goal: Taking the burden off of the family so that the time they have to spend with their loved one can be truly special, and when they aren’t there, family members can be confident that their loved one is being cared for as we would care for any member of our own families.
Each member of the Amada Senior Care Southern Delaware team is dedicated to going beyond basic home-care by gaining a deep understanding of our clients and their individual needs so that we can make a truly positive impact on their lives. In addition, at Amada Southern Delaware, we understand the range of emotions seniors and their families experience as they consider in-home care. Our goal is to guide families through this delicate transition in a way that helps each member feel supported and confident in their decision to place their trust in us.

We realize that superior care extends far beyond cooking and cleaning, and it is our mission to ensure that each of our clients is not only safe and healthy, but feels happy, valued, and fulfilled every day.

Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Southern Delaware, we realize that in-home care may not be enough to meet the needs of some seniors and that our clients may one day need to consider transitioning to an environment where they can get a little more support. We also realize that the prospect of moving to an assisted living or senior care community may be intimidating to our clients and their loved ones on a number of levels.
The transition to a care community may be new to you, but we have years of experience helping seniors find the ideal living situations to meet their needs in Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Dover, Milford, Millsboro, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Dewey Beach, Farmington, Harrington, Georgetown, Laurel, Smyrna, Seaford, Selbyville and many other communities throughout Sussex County and Kent County. We encourage our clients to rely on our in-depth knowledge so they can feel confident that they have found the right place for their lifestyles.
When considering a care community or assisted living, it is crucial that we honestly evaluate the unique needs and preferences of each client. Some seniors may do best in a nursing home where more complex medical care is available, while others may benefit most from an assisted living community where they can live more independently and still get help with basic activities of daily living.
Many seniors and their families hesitate to consider transitioning to a care community because they are worried about costs. At Amada Senior Care Southern Delaware, we never want financial concerns to prevent our clients from enjoying safe and happy lives. We provide our consulting services for no cost, and our advisers can help families take full advantage of resources like long-term care insurance and veterans’ programs to help them fit superior care into their budgets.
Our goal is to ensure that each of our clients is safe and happy, whether this is accomplished through in-home care or referral to the most suitable place for this stage of their lives, 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
