Amada Senior Care
John Merrell views his role as owner of Amada Senior Care Jackson as part of a larger commitment to our entire community. To John, a community’s elders are its foundation, so providing outstanding care to make the lives of our senior clients safer, easier, and more enjoyable has a ripple effect to improve the lives of everybody around them. Through his passion and dedication, John and his team have made Amada one of the most highly respected senior care companies in the region, serving Pearl, Flowood, Ridgeland, Madison, Richland, Brandon, and beyond. As John says, “Our senior citizens are a constant source of wisdom and inspiration. At Amada Jackson, our goal is to show our clients how much we value them by allowing them to live with the dignity they deserve and finding meaningful ways to enrich their lives on a daily basis.”
At Amada Jackson, we realize that it is an honor and reflection of trust for our clients to invite us into their lives and their homes. We strive to provide each client with high-quality, compassionate care and companionship.
Of course, we perform regular tasks associated with in-home care, such as meal preparation and housekeeping. However, we believe it is important for us to go beyond the to-do list and get to know each client personally. This allows us to impact their lives in a much more profound way—whether we are scheduling play-dates with the grandchildren, taking a stroll with a client to see a neighbor’s garden, or reading their favorite books to them.
We may enter our clients’ homes as strangers, but our caregivers quickly become extensions of their families.
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.

By offering care giving and placement services, we are able to help seniors find the living arrangement that suits them best.
