Amada Senior Care Springfield

Barbie Kolb, Christopher Kerr and Timothy Swearengin, owners of Amada Senior Care Springfield, are passionate about enriching the lives of seniors by providing them with personalized, in-home senior care along with guidance as they navigate the unfamiliar territory of senior care.

“My passion in caring for seniors began with my sweet grandma. After experiencing a fall, she was no longer able to be independent. It was a stressful time as we made decisions for her care with little experience or guidance.

Through that situation, I realized the value of having someone walk through the difficult times with families. Having an experienced caregiver to advocate and care for grandma in our absence was a blessing.

It is my great honor being called to help families navigate this unfamiliar territory and provide the best care possible for their loved one.”

Barbie, Tim and Chris share a passion for advocating for seniors. Each one went through senior care experiences in their own families, and those experiences reaffirmed their commitment to providing the highest quality of in-home senior care. Amada Springfield’s trained caregivers provide compassionate care for seniors living in the counties of Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Douglas, Greene, Lawrence, Polk, Stone, Taney, and Webster, along with the cities of Aurora, Bolivar, Branson, Marshfield, Monett, Mt. Vernon, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville, Springfield, Willard, and beyond.

“As a physician for more than 20 years, I am a daily witness to the disruption that disability and disease has on patients and their families,” says Chris, an Anesthesiologist. “I do my best to offer comfort and reassurance to patients as they face an uncertain diagnosis, frightening prognosis or a prolonged recovery after surgery. Outside the walls of the healthcare system, there is a tremendous need to continue caring for our seniors here in Southwest Missouri.

“Caring for the most vulnerable in their time of need has been a true calling and privilege,” Chris adds. “Amada Springfield allows me the honor to continue offering comfort and reassurance to vulnerable seniors in a safe and familiar environment, their own homes.”

Chris, Barbie and Tim are committed to treating seniors with the same respect and compassion as they do their own families, because they are part of the Amada family.

Says Tim: “I, like most, have witnessed the struggle of those who require long-term care assistance. In my own family, due to accidents, Alzheimer’s, or simply advanced age, those closest to me are living with this struggle—uncertain of what services are available, what they can afford, and who to turn to during this vulnerable time, they do what they can.

“I chose a career in medicine, because I wanted to care for and comfort people through the most vulnerable and frightening experiences of their lives,” Tim notes. “What I’ve come to realize is the tremendous need for that same care after these events. Amada is my opportunity and privilege to provide continued compassion for the rest their lives.”

Amada Springfield in-home senior care aides do whatever they can to help seniors feel more comfortable and independent in their own homes. This means that in addition to helping with activities of daily living, Amada Springfield’s trained caregivers seek out meaningful ways to enrich clients’ lives on a daily basis.

daughter in law

We needed short term overnight care for my father in law and Barbie was right on top of it! She came to meet with us the day I contacted her and was able to get care in his home the following night. Barbie was very good to work with and wanted us to be happy with the caregivers placed in his home. She was flexible and came to introduce the caregiver the first night she came to the home. The caregivers, Melissa and Maggie, were so kind and respectful and were willing to help in any way needed. I would highly recommend Amada to anyone seeking home health care!

Thank you for your love and support during that tough time.

Daughter Of Client

Loved every person we came in contact at Amada. Everyone was like family the minute they stepped in the door. We only had care a couple of days and staff was with us when my mom died. They were so helpful, supportive, caring and loving to my dad and I and to my mom. Will definitely use this family owned, Christian-based company in the future if the need arises. Thank you for your love and support during that tough time.

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 Springfield 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 Springfield has years of experience with senior care in Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Douglas, Greene, Lawrence, Polk, Stone, Taney, and Webster, along with the cities of Aurora, Bolivar, Branson, Marshfield, Monett, Mt. Vernon, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville, Springfield, Willard, 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 Springfield 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 Springfield, 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.

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.
