Amada Senior Care Richmond
Jay Mann, owner of Amada Senior Care Richmond, knows too well the feelings of frustration families feel when they are not able to help and care for a senior loved one. Jay recalls, “Early in my career, I had the opportunity to work in pathology with cancer research and diagnostics. During that time, sadly, my best friend passed away from lung cancer, leaving behind a wife and two children. He was like a brother to me, and his passing affected me in a profound way.
This experience has motivated Jay to provide the highest quality of care for seniors and to provide compassionate support for their loved ones. “I remember so clearly how helpless I felt as I watched my friend suffer. I speak with people every day who feel about their parents the way I did about my best friend. I know that we can give them peace of mind to know that their parents are in good hands—that we’re doing right by them. I know this is the right thing to do.”
Jay and our team at Amada Senior Care West Richmond have earned a reputation for providing excellent senior care in Tuckahoe, Mechanicsville, Charlottesville, Waynesboro, Bon Air, Laurel Park, and surrounding communities. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of our clients by providing personalized and compassionate care. Of course, our home-care aides take help with ADLs like cooking and light housekeeping, but we try to find ways to make each of these activities feel special. Once we form trusting relationships with our clients, we can truly understand not only their care needs, but also their preferences and desires. This not only brightens the lives of our clients, but also of their loved ones who see them thrive. Our caregivers provide assistance with things like:

My 93 old mother was in the hospital for 10 days with flu, which became pneumonia...and then she had a stroke. When she was transported by ambulance back to her assisted living facility she was like dead weight; ZERO strength. She wouldn't eat or drink in the hospital, so she lost weight and had to have an IV for hydration. My brother hired Amada to be with her daily for the first week or two, to make sure she would be well-cared for and safe for at the facility (where the aides there can only be with her intermittently.) Today is the first day of Amada's assistance - the first full day of Mom being out of the hospital - and the aide has Mom up, walking to the bathroom, dressed and having toast & coffee. In my mind it's a miracle! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Amada! Mom's aide, Brenda, is an angel!!
I knew right away during my first meeting with Jay Mann that Amada Senior Care would be the best fit for our home health care. Jay never made me feel rushed as he explained the programs and services they offered. He answered all of my questions and concerns with understanding, knowledge and compassion. It is impossible to describe the impact that Jay and his team of caregivers made on both me and my husband. They truly understand the importance of the job that care providers do and we couldn't have wished for a better team. I would like to mention the four caregivers that took such wonderful care of my husband, Jesse, Annette, Zhane and Tonya, and at the same time helped me by going over daily care plans, tips that I could use when I was alone, and always being so dependable and supportive. I noticed how these caregivers took their time to explain to my husband what they were going to do and that was important to both of us - they truly have the heart as well as skills for this difficult job.
Not all caregivers are good, as we learned through various agencies. However, Amada sent us JULIA J. who was the most attentive, loving "angel" we could ever have hoped for. Working with Amada to fine-tune our changing needs was a pleasure. They were immediately responsive to whatever we needed, even at short notice. There were never any "billing surprises" and we were immediately notified if upcoming hours would fall into extra charges for holidays (Memorial Day, Mother's Day). This is a far more professional company than many others in our area, and Jay Mann is easy to work with and always attentive to his clients. I also appreciated Jay's initial intake interview in my mother's home prior to services. It offered us all an opportunity to find the right fit for care. This is a very professional company and highly recommended.
Senior Housing Advising Services
At Amada Senior Care West Richmond, our goal is to help our senior clients live their best lives. So when living at home is no longer the best option for a client, we work with that client and his or her loved ones to find the best assisted living community for their unique situation.
There are so many factors a family must take into consideration when looking for a senior community, such as the level of care provided by a facility, which place will best contribute to a senior’s happiness and comfort, and whether the community of choice will present too large a financial burden. We have learned through years of experience the best ways to address each of these concerns and help families make decisions about future care with confidence.
There are a number of different types of care communities in the West Richmond area, and each provides a different level of care. Nursing homes are typically able to provide substantial assistance with activities of daily living and also offer complex medical services that may not be available in another type of residential care environment. Assisted living communities still offer help with ADLs but usually don’t have complex medical facilities on-site and may allow a senior to live more independently.
Fortunately for our clients and their loved ones, we at Amada have established working relationships with nearly every care community in the West Richmond area. Since we are familiar with the culture, lifestyle, and options each community offers, we can help guide our clients to the new home that will be the best fit for them.
Frequently, clients and families hesitate to consider senior housing an option because they assume it will be too expensive for them. At Amada, we are familiar with all options and resources to help cover the cost of care, such as veterans’ benefits, long-term care insurance, life insurance, and others. With our support, you might be surprised by how affordable the care community of your choice can be!
If you or your loved one would like to learn more about the senior living options available in the West Richmond, we encourage you to rely on Amada as your best resource. We specialize in referrals to:
- 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
Home Care Technology
As seniors begin to face limitations due to their age, loved ones who want to keep them safe often present options such as in-home care, moving in with family, or assisted living. But what if there were an option that allowed seniors to continue living in their homes but also allowed their loved ones to be confident in their safety? There is. It’s called BeClose home monitoring by Amada Senior Care.
BeClose allows families to keep a loving eye on seniors from anywhere in the world. Each BeClose remote care system is fully customizable, so families choose only the options that they need. Some of the more popular products in this line include medication monitors, security cameras, automated door locks and thermostats, and emergency alerts for falls, intruders, fire, and more. Each device is visually low-profile and easy to use, and they all provide regular updates to families through a secure mobile app they can check at any time. BeClose also notifies families when a change in behavior patterns or routines may signal the need to re-assess a senior’s care and living situation.
With BeClose, seniors can preserve their independence while their loved ones can preserve peace of mind, knowing that they are safe and comfortable. To learn more, contact Amada for a Free BeClose Consultation.
