Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh Northwest

Serving families and seniors in Allegheny, Beaver and Butler counties and communities with pride

Chad and Vicki Craig, owners of Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh Northwest, both share a lifelong passion for
serving our senior population. Having spent the last 25 years of their professional careers in advanced healthcare technologies for older adults, they understand the importance of providing the highest quality care at home so that our loved ones can age in place safely and happily.

For both Chad and Vicki, providing quality care to support senior independence at home isn’t just a passion, but a calling. Their appreciation for and dedication to our cherished elder community began at a young age. As a child, Chad would often choose to visit residents of a senior facility neighboring his home over playing kickball outside with friends his own age. When his father, a WWII veteran and amputee, was transitioned to a memory care facility, an adult Chad didn’t know then about the options available that could have allowed his father to spend his last days enjoying the comforts of his own home. “I felt guilt after my dad passed because I was not aware that I could have brought him home where he could have been in a familiar place surrounded by family,” Chad recalls.  Vicki experienced a very similar situation with her own grandmother, who declined quickly after she was moved from her own home to a care facility.

Personalized Care for Seniors and Families in Pittsburgh Northwest

Recognizing that well-vetted, committed caregivers are a necessity to safely aging in place, Chad and Vicki felt compelled to start their own senior home care business.  Chad, Vicki and the entire Amada Pittsburgh Northwest team have devoted themselves to delivering the highest quality of compassionate elder care. Their extraordinary level of service is the reason why Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh Northwest has a reputation for providing in-home caregivers who exceed client expectations, along with the highest rating (A+) from the Home Care Standards Bureau, the industry’s standard-bearer.

Chad, Vicki and the rest of the Amada Pittsburgh Northwest team couldn’t offer the exceptional quality care that they do without investing time and effort into pairing trained and knowledgeable Amada caregivers with senior clients to promote their well-being and health. Their process of offering excellent caregiving assistance includes regularly checking with their senior clients and families to ensure that individual care needs and preferences are being met. Chad, Vicki, and the Amada Pittsburgh Northwest team are just as diligent in offering expert financial advisory services to help seniors and their families navigate the complexities of Long-Term Care insurance (LTCi) policies and VA benefits.

We invite you to contact us at Amada Senior Care Pittsburgh Northwest to learn more about how we can be of service to help your senior loved one age with dignity and respect, while giving your family the peace of mind they deserve. We exist to enrich seniors’ lives by helping them retain independent living for as long as possible, and our services include providing funding solutions on how to pay for in-home care. It is our pleasure and honor to serve.

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 Allegheny, Beaver and Butler Counties and 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 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.

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 dishonorably 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.
