Amada Senior Care Northern New Jersey
Amada Senior Care Northern New Jersey operator Gerri Dasappan is uniquely qualified to provide the highest quality of senior care, as she is both a registered nurse and someone who has personally benefited from in-home care. When Gerri’s father was in the final days of his fight with cancer, the support and assistance provided by caregivers in their home allowed her family simply to focus on spending time with him. She says, “Having the right home-care people come in and help my mother with my dad was a big help for all of us. It gave us peace of mind. And this is the kind of care that I want to provide for all of our clients.”
With their office located in Northern New Jersey, Gerri and her Amada team care for clients throughout Northern New Jersey, including West Orange, Livingston, Harding, Parsippany, Boonton, Rockaway, Hunterdon, Caldwell, Denville, and surrounding communities. At Amada Senior Care Northern New Jersey, we see it as our mission to enrich the lives of our clients and their loved ones in every way we can. This means that in addition to the expected in-home caregiver tasks such as cooking and housekeeping, we always look for ways to bring meaning, value, and enjoyment to their lives.
We understand that it is often difficult for our clients to open their homes to strangers as they struggle to accept new limitations. This is why we are dedicated to forming close bonds with each client so that we understand their unique needs and preferences. This allows us to provide the kind of compassionate and personalized care they deserve.

Senior Housing Advisory Services
There comes a time in many of our senior clients’ lives when living at home, even with the assistance of a home-care aide, is no longer ideal. As families consider such options as assisted living or skilled nursing, the team at Amada Northern New Jersey is here to guide them through every step of the way. From finding the right place, to exploring all financial options and resources, to easing concerns during transition, our clients and their loved ones know they can trust Amada Senior Care for the expert advice and support they need.
When considering a senior living community, it is important that our clients and their loved ones honestly assess the level of care they will require. For individuals who anticipate the need for complex medical services, a nursing home may be the best place to help them stay safe and comfortable. However, some of our senior clients just want to simplify their lives and receive assistance with some basic activities of daily living, and for such individuals an assisted living community may be a better fit.
Once we know the type of care a senior will require, we then discuss other factors that will play a role in the selection of the ideal community. After all, we know that care and assistance is necessary to keep seniors safe, but that finding the placement that will best suit their location, lifestyle, and social needs is key to ensuring their comfort and enjoyment of life.
In addition to drawing from our extensive experience and working relationships with most of the senior living communities throughout Northern New Jersey, the Amada senior housing team also helps families explore options that may make it easier to cover the cost of residential care. We guide clients through the application process and help them submit claims and manage benefits to make the most of resources such as veterans’ aid programs, long-term care insurance, and other non-traditional payment options. Our clients deserve the very best care, and we do all we can to ensure that they receive it.
At Amada Northern New Jersey, we are personally committed to supporting the health and happiness of our clients and their loved ones. We never charge for our assisted living placement services, and will refer you and your family to the facility that best meets your needs, such as:
- 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
Technology to Help You BeClose
When seniors are determined to live independently at home but their loved ones have some concerns for their safety, it can be difficult to find a compromise that puts everyone’s mind at ease. Fortunately for our clients, Amada Senior Care has developed the ideal solution that allows families to care for their senior loved ones remotely: our BeClose home monitoring system.
Each family is able to completely customize their own BeClose system, choosing from a range of state-of-the-art products and devices and paying for nothing that is unnecessary. Some of the most popular BeClose products include medication monitors to let families know if a dose was missed, indoor and outdoor security cameras, automated door locks and thermostats, and even alerts to instantly notify families and nearby assistants of falls, intruders, or other potential emergencies. BeClose also compiles records of behavior and activity patterns, and can let families know when changes in routine may signal a need for more hands-on care. Families and Amada caregivers are able to receive real-time updates and frequent reports directly on their mobile phones through the revolutionary BeClose mobile app, so they can remain confident that their loved one is safe and thriving—whether they are across the street or across the globe.

- Recipients of Aid and Attendance must need assistance with activities of daily living from another person.
- These activities may include support due to cognitive impairment, bathing, eating, walking, and others.
- The majority of an applicant’s income must currently be spent on care.
- The percentage of income spent on care is the main factor in the amount of the benefit applicants receive, up to a maximum amount.
- The VA determines a limit for the amount of assets each applicant may possess to be eligible for benefits.
- Age and financial need are key factors in the determination of this limit.
VA benefits can help seniors retain the highest quality of care or afford the community of their choice. Aid and Attendance benefits are:
