Amada Senior Care Ventura County

Craig and Joy Michayluk and Glen Schecter are the owners of Amada Senior Care Ventura County, a business based on their long-held belief that serving seniors and veterans is a great privilege and a lifelong passion.

“Helping people has always been my passion, especially working with our veterans,” says Glen Schecter. “My dad was a WWII veteran and worked as a veteran’s advocate for more than 30 years. Thanks to his influence, helping veterans and seniors has been part of my life both personally and in business.”

Says Craig, “After being married, my wife Joy and I searched for a way to express our deep compassion for seniors by helping them improve their lives. We found our calling in 2007 when we purchased a 46-bed assisted living facility.”

Soon after, Craig and Joy started a home health agency with hospice care and a pharmacy. Their goal then and now is to “improve seniors’ lives one senior at a time.”

“Looking back on my life, I see how I was prepared for this calling,” Craig adds. “As a 16-year-old, I used to drive my grandfather around to appointments, to shop and to stop by the local bar for an occasional beer. My grandfather and I spent a lot of time together and we developed a great friendship. He would often refer to me as his friend, not grandson. That was a great privilege.”

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 Ventura County 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 Ventura County has years of experience with senior care in Agoura Hills, Agoura, Calabasas, Calabasas Hills, Cornell, Oak Park, Saratoga Hills, Newberry Park, Thousand Oaks, Santa Clarita, Newhall, Agua Dulce, Saugus, Valencia, Westlake Village, Lake Sherwood, Hidden Valley, Stevenson Ranch, Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura, Santa Rosa Valley, Simi Valley, Santa Susana and nearby 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 Ventura County 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 Ventura County, 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.

"I can’t thank you enough for the exceptional care you all showed for my mom. I wanted to let you know how much our family appreciates you and your team of caregivers.”
