Amada Senior Care
in Sonoma and Napa Counties
Mike and Angela Lynch, owners of Amada Senior Care in Sonoma and Napa Counties, are dedicated to providing seniors in this community with the quality of loving care that their own grandparents received, because they saw first-hand how this impacted their entire family. It was their personal experiences that motivated them to open Amada in Sonoma and Napa Counties and help care for their neighbors in Napa County, Sonoma County, Marin County, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Windsor, Petaluma, and other nearby communities.
Angela recalls, “Not long ago, my grandparents were getting to the point where they needed help with meals. So everyone in the family started pitching in, helping them with all of these normal aspects of daily living that they simply couldn’t handle anymore. Soon, we realized we didn’t have the time to provide the care my grandparents needed, so we began the process of looking for someone we could trust to be alone in the home with my grandparents. We were very lucky to find a gentleman who took care of them as well as a few other caregivers. We witnessed my grandparents blossom from this care and love, feel secure, and be able to do all of the things that we didn’t have the time to help them do. Those caregivers became part of our family.”
After these experiences with senior care, Angela says, “I realize what an amazing gift this was to my family, and now Mike and I want to be a part of that. We want to help people who feel alone, and help those families that can’t be there in all of those moments their parents and grandparents need them.”
At Amada in Sonoma and Napa Counties, we strive to meet the unique senior care needs of each of the families we work with. For many families, this means in-home care like what was provided for Angela’s grandparents. And just like that caregiver, we go beyond everyday tasks to personalize care and see our clients “blossom.” In cases where home is no longer the best place for a beloved senior, we will guide families to the ideal assisted living community for their needs. We’ll also make sure each family we work with has access to every resource available to help fit senior care into their budgets, including long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, and even life insurance policies.
We do all of these things and more because we have a genuine interest in each of our clients and their loved ones. As Mike says, “At Amada, we are an extension of your own family, and we’re here to make sure your mom and dad are happy, healthy, and thriving on a daily basis.”

Senior Housing Advising
The Sonoma and Napa County areas are lovely places to retire, as they offer a wide range of senior housing options. While most view this as a benefit, to a family trying to find the best environment for a beloved senior this multitude of choices can be overwhelming. At Amada, we provide our senior housing advisory services at no charge, so we can help you and your family feel confident you have placed your loved one in the very best environment for his or her unique situation.
Families who are new to the world of senior housing may not realize that in addition to the sheer number of individual facilities and communities in the Sonoma and Napa County areas, there are also different types of facilities which are differentiated by the level of care and support they provide. For example, nursing homes offer access to complex medical services as well as substantial supervision and help with ADLs, while an assisted living community affords seniors more independence but not quite as much assistance. It’s important to honestly consider the amount of care a senior will require as you begin the senior housing placement process.
In addition to ensuring that a senior loved one receives the level of care they will need, it’s also very important that families find the new home where their loved one will be happiest and most engaged. We have worked with nearly every senior housing community in this area, so we can direct you to the place most in line with your location preferences, a senior’s activity level and hobbies, and other personal factors that will greatly influence his or her quality of life.
Every senior has different needs and preferences, but when it comes to senior housing there is one trait that nearly all of our clients share: a concern about cost. While it may seem to seniors and their families that moving to the community of their choice is just not financially possible, we are experts at helping clients take advantage of all available resources to help cover the cost of care. These may include long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, life insurance policies, and other non-traditional methods of funding.
At Amada Senior Care in Sonoma and Napa County, ensuring that your senior loved one is safe, comfortable, and thriving is our priority. We will refer you to the ideal senior housing environment, which could include:
- 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: BeClose
When seniors are determined to remain living independently at home but their loved ones are concerned that this is no longer a safe option for them, it can be difficult to find a solution that will satisfy everyone. Fortunately, Amada has created a revolutionary senior care option that may be that solution for your family: our BeClose remote care system.
BeClose is a comprehensive home monitoring system that allows families to feel confident that a senior loved one is safe, even if they live alone. We have created a range of BeClose products for families to choose from, such as medication monitors, automated thermostats and door locks, indoor and outdoor security cameras, and even button-free alarms to notify help in the event of a fall or emergency. Each device in the BeClose line has been designed specifically to meet a family’s senior care needs, and they all work together to send regular updates to loved ones through a secure mobile app. With BeClose, you’ll never need to wonder whether Dad took his morning meds, or whether Aunt Ruth forgot to lock her door again. Plus, if a senior’s routine or behavioral patterns change, BeClose will let you know so that you can address any potential needs for more care before a problem arises.

Veterans Assistance Programs
At Amada Senior Care in Sonoma and Napa County, we have seen that many of our clients who are veterans struggle with the costs of care. This is one of the reasons we have made it our business to become experts in senior care financial counseling, which has enabled us to help our clients who have served this country take advantage of resources such as the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance is one of many VA and government programs designed to make it easier for veterans to afford care. This particular benefit is specifically for wartime veterans and their surviving spouses who need help with activities of daily living. If you’d like more information on Aid and Attendance and other benefits for veterans, please Click here for a Free Veteran’s Care Needs Consultation.
