Amada Senior Care Lehigh Valley owners
Ed Duborg and Tod Meixell, owners of Amada Senior Care Lehigh Valley, understand that to provide the best quality of senior care it is necessary to support an entire family, not just a single client. They have seen first-hand the emotional and physical strain that often comes with taking care of an ill or elderly loved one, and realize that the pace many families keep while trying to care for a senior is simply not sustainable.
As Ed recalls, “I remember my mother, who was already taking care of five kids, trying to care for my grandmother, who was suffering from diabetes and rapidly declining health. It was a lot for her to take—so much so that it became a burden she could no longer bear all by herself. She needed help. We ended up moving my grandmother into an assisted living community when my mother was unable to handle her care.”
Now, Ed and Tod strive to alleviate the burdens Ed’s mother felt for their neighbors throughout the Lehigh Valley area. Ed says, “At Amada, we see people like my mother every day. People who are working, people who have kids; and they barely have enough time to go see their parents, never mind provide them with the care they need. At Amada, we provide the non-medical, in-home care seniors like my grandmother need to be able to continue living at home. We help with bathing, meal preparation, shopping, medication reminders, and more—all the little things that add up to the ability to enjoy a good quality of life.”
As we know through personal experience, knowing that a beloved senior is well-cared for not only affords their loved ones peace of mind; it also allows them to continue filling the family roles they have always held. This is why each of our home-care aides at Amada Lehigh Valley is dedicated to caring for each client as though they were a member of their own family.
At Amada we look for ways to make simple, everyday tasks special. Amada’s in-home caregivers not only take care of daily essentials like cooking and cleaning, they also go above and beyond to make their clients smile. Recently, one of our caregivers discovered that her client had spent his whole life farming – so she purchased some seeds before her visit and planted a garden for them to tend together. At Amada, we know in-home care isn’t just about performing tasks on a to-do list. It can be hard for seniors to accept new limitations and open their home up to a stranger. Our caregivers understand that it’s essential to show compassion and really connect with their clients to make the changes easier. Amada caregivers are trained to provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) like:
- Meal preparation/feeding
- Medication reminders
- Walking/ambulating/exercise assistance
- Light housekeeping
- Most non-medical assistance
Amada Placement ServicesAssisted living communities are designed to provide help for residents with basic ADLs. Some states also allow assisted living community to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Unlike nursing homes, though, assisted living communities do not offer complex medical services. Every senior has unique care needs and preferences when it comes to assisted living community. Amada is able to help families narrow down their options based on individual care needs, budget, location, and personal preferences.Because Amada has extensive experience with long-term care insurance, veterans’ programs, and other non-traditional payment options, we’re also able to help families figure out the best ways to pay for assisted living. You don’t have to navigate this process alone. All of Amada’s senior housing and assisted living placement services are completely free to our clients. By offering care giving and placement services, we are able to help seniors find the living arrangement that suits them best. Amada has relationships with hundreds of local senior care and assisted living communities, so we can help you quickly identify the facility that best meets your loved one’s needs. We specialize in referrals for the following types of facilities:
- Assisted living communities
- Large and small communities
- Independent living communities
- Board and care homes
- Adult family homes
- Senior care homes
- Skilled nursing facilities
