Our Commitment

For the members of our team at Amada Senior Care Southern Maine, providing in-home senior care is much more than just a job. It is a fulfillment of our personal goal to enrich the lives of our clients at every level. The goal of each team member at Amada Southern Maine is to give every senior in our care the same individual level of dedication, compassion, and concern that we give to our own parents and grandparents in need. Whether it is helping a senior client to adjust his or her care plan, engaging in an activity or hobby a client likes, sharing a friendly word with a family member, or preparing a meal that tastes like home to a client, we truly enjoy what we do—and it shows.

Providing the highest level of care to those who deserve it most—our beloved (the word “amada” is the Spanish word for beloved) seniors—is not only our business, but our solemn mission.

“We are passionate about helping you meet your needs or those of a loved one while also bringing comfort to your home.”

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 Southern Maine 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 Southern Maine has years of experience with senior care in Bath, Biddeford, Brunswick, Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Falmouth, Freeport, Gorham, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Portland, Saco, Sanford, Scarborough, South Portland, Topsham, Wells, Westbrook, Windham, Yarmouth, York. 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 Southern Maine 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 Southern Maine, 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. 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.
