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. They 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.
“My passion for caring for seniors began after my sweet Grandma fell and was no longer able to care for herself at home,” says Barbie. “It was a stressful time as her children began to make decisions regarding her care with little experience or guidance in this area. I realized the value of having someone to walk through that difficult time with the family. It will be an honor to have the opportunity to provide that comfort to families going through similar situations.
“While Grandma was well cared for in the skilled nursing facility, she longed for the day she could be back in her own home. It was an easy decision for me to choose to advocate for seniors after my retirement from teaching. Working to help other families navigate this unfamiliar territory and find what is best for their loved ones is where I want to focus my energy.“
Barbie, Tim, 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.”
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.
At Amada Senior Care Springfield, we know from personal experience that senior care is a family endeavor. This is why our care and support doesn’t stop with our senior clients, but extends to their loved ones, as well. We are committed to enriching the lives of seniors by providing them with the highest quality of care and companionship, because this is how we expect our own senior loved ones to be treated.
