Amada Senior Care Sugar Land
As owners of Amada Senior Care Sugar Land, Deborah and David DeNoble have seen first-hand the difference compassionate and personalized care can make in the lives of our senior clients as well as their loved ones. Not only does the quality of care we deliver help seniors to thrive, but it also gives families peace of mind that comes from knowing their loved one is safe, comfortable, and content.
At Amada Sugar Land, it is our goal to form a bond with each of our clients. This helps us to earn their trust, and it also gives us insight into their personalities that allows us to care for them in more meaningful ways beyond typical home-care tasks such as cooking and housekeeping. For example, if we know that Mary’s favorite program is on the television on Wednesday evenings, we might plan an extra-special snack for her to enjoy while watching. Or if we learn that Charles used to love playing chess at the park, we can make sure he’s there when his buddies are so he can join in a game or two. It’s the personal touches like these that truly enrich our clients’ lives, and this is what we strive to do on a daily basis.
We realize that in many families senior care is a group effort, and our clients’ loved ones also struggle with the emotional and logistic issues associated with caring for a beloved senior. It’s important that we support these family members as well as our clients—whether we are helping a family explore senior housing options, guiding them to financial resources to make it easier to pay for care, or simply empathizing with them on particularly stressful days.
At Amada Senior Care Sugar Land, we honestly view each of our clients (and, by extension, their loved ones) as part of our family. We are committed to supporting them through every aspect of senior care with the same patience, wisdom, and understanding we would demand for one of our own.

When I was discharged from the hospital, I needed some help at home. My husband was on oxygen and not really able to do a lot around the house to help me, and I couldn't do the things I had done. Dave met with us and said he would provide a "second wife" in the house. We laughed at that and felt he knew what we needed. A caregiver came in 3 hours a day for 5 days. We did that for months. They provided one caregiver, and she was there for months. We loved her.
A couple months later I was starting to get better but my husband was declining some. The family made the decision that we needed 24 hour care all week long. We met with Dave and he said he would get good caregivers for us to provide round the clock care. We had 3 caregivers come in each week and they kept those 3 for several months. My husband was really declining and having difficulties with his oxygen levels. One evening he left the table and went to the bathroom. The caregiver, Kim, went to check on him and he fell into her and stopped breathing. She performed CPR several times and called 911. They tried reviving him many times but he died that evening. Kim stayed with us all evening. Dave came to be with us and talked with family about what we needed that night. Kim went home with me, which was really good. She stayed and helped at the house the next day, making meals and just helping make sure family and friends we taken care of. I really was amazed and thankful for the help she provided. I would recommend them to anyone. Every caregiver we saw was loving to us and wanted to help every way they could.
I was referred to Amada Senior Care Sugar Land and a couple other agencies when my Mom was about to be discharged from the hospital. Dave came right away to meet with me and explained all my options. My mother has some dementia, and I knew I needed someone with her while I worked. They provided a caregiver to work 10-12 hours a day. Dave said they would help with laundry and other housekeeping jobs, but I said I did them after work. I guess he told them to do it anyway. I came home and the clothes were washed, dried, folded and put away. When I saw him a few days later, I told him I didn't realize what a difference this would make in my life. I had been doing everything, and was getting so tired. I could hardly think about the next day. This gave me time to spend with my mother, and get some rest.
Eventually my Dad came home. He had fallen in the nursing home and had many difficulties all of a sudden. A few days after he came home, the caregiver came in and immediately called me. He was stopping breathing and then starting. He was having great difficulty. She sat with him and comforted him while he was dying. It was so good having her there to be with me an help. She took Mother aside when the police and ambulance came and talked with her so she didn't have to see what would have really upset her. I so appreciated that she was proactive in helping. That happened so many times while they were caring, that I came to expect it. I don't know if every caregiver is like that, but all their were and it made it so nice for me.
I contacted Amada Senior Care Sugar Land to obtain care for my mother who was on hospice care due to pancreatic cancer. She had a caregiver during the day, but we needed someone who would stay with her the rest of the time, making sure she got her pain medications on time. Amada sent a caregiver the first night who was excellent. I figured that they would send the best at the start. Due to the number of hours, I knew there would be more than one caregiver, and expected the care to fall off some when the second came in. Over the 6 weeks, there were 4 or 5 different caregivers. I can't tell who was the best. There was no one we didn't think loved my Mom. They all did, and she loved them. The night she died, the caregiver stayed and helped with everything, both for my Mom and for us as a family. I have nothing but good things to say about Dave and the caregivers they provided. They all cared about us as if we were their family.
Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Senior Care Sugar Land, we realize that the process of finding the right assisted living environment for a senior loved one can be overwhelming, especially when a family has no previous experiences with senior housing. We have been guiding seniors to the ideal placements in the Sugar Land area for years, and are pleased to offer our senior housing advisory services and expertise at no charge.
With so many senior living options available to our clients in the Sugar Land area, it can be difficult to know where to begin. We’ve found that when we break the placement process down into a series of steps, families find it easier to focus on the decision immediately at hand and are more likely to find the ideal place for their loved one.
The first step towards finding the right senior living environment is to evaluate the level of care and assistance a senior needs, as this will dictate the type of community we focus on. For seniors who rely heavily on assistance from others for activities of daily living or those who need immediate access to complex medical services, we recommend a nursing home or skilled nursing facility. For seniors who are able to live more independently, an assisted living community may be a better fit.
Once we know the general type of senior community will best meet a senior’s physical needs, we can then focus on his or her emotional needs. Since we at Amada have relationships with nearly every senior community in the Sugar Land area, we can direct clients to the new home that will align best with their location preferences, lifestyle, and style of socialization.
So many of the seniors and families we work with fear that their senior housing choices will be limited because of financial concerns. We absolutely understand this, and realize that “sticker shock” is a very real factor in the placement process. However, we are experts at helping families take advantage of resources and non-traditional payment options to help defray senior housing expenses, such as long-term care insurance, life insurance, and veterans’ benefits. In many cases, we are able to substantially reduce the out-of-pocket expenses of assisted living so that clients can move to the community of their choice.
At Amada Sugar Land, our specialty is guiding seniors and their families to the ideal senior housing environment to meet their unique needs and preferences. We provide 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
“BeClose” through Home Care Technology
At Amada, we aim to provide the ideal senior care solution for every family. In the past, the only options when a loved one began to be limited by age were in-home care, moving in with a relative, or assisted living. For so many families and seniors, none of these options is ideal. Fortunately, Amada has created a revolutionary new senior care option: remote care through our BeClose home monitoring system.
With BeClose, seniors are able to live safely in their homes for longer than was previously possible because their loved ones can keep a “virtual eye” on them from anywhere in the world. BeClose is a fully-customized home monitoring system which allows families to choose from a range of products such as medication monitors, indoor and outdoor security cameras, automated door locks, and button-free alarms to notify help in emergency situations. Families pay only for the devices that are right for them, and the entire system syncs to a secure mobile app that provides real-time updates on a senior’s activities. The BeClose remote care system also tracks seniors’ routines and behavioral patterns, and will alert families when a potentially troublesome change is noted.
BeClose allows seniors to remain independent in their homes while their loved ones remain confident in their safety. To learn more about remote care with BeClose, Click Here for a Free Consultation with a Member of the Amada Team.
Veterans Assistance Programs
We have been honored to provide senior care for many veterans at Amada Sugar Land, and we have become experts at helping veterans take advantage of all programs and benefits available to help them afford the highest quality of care.

Aid and Attendance provides monthly financial aid for wartime veterans and surviving spouses who need help with activities of daily living.
