Where do I start? First off, let me begin by telling you I'm a Caregiver and 1 1/2 years ago I began my journey with Amada Senior Care of Tacoma. Something told my gut this was the place to be. I had worked or another large Caregiving company in the area that really put a bad taste in my mouth because they were all about the money. Long story short, I found Amada and my moment to shine as a caregiver came to life. From the moment I applied to the end of my employment, my experience with Amada was nothing less than amazing! I finally had found a company that cared not only about the well being of their clients, but for their staff as well. Sadly that is hard to come by. What made my experience special was the owner, Robert Christensen took a special interest in each and every case making sure every single client and caregiver were happy, had what they needed, and if they didn't, he went out of his way no matter the time of day, day of the week to make sure they did. I've had many conversations with Robert over the phone, and every single time I felt like I mattered in his company, actually I felt more like family. Not only that, my clients felt the exact same way! In November I was chosen for Caregiver of the Month and received a bonus.It was nice to be recognized for my hard work and efforts. Because sometimes in this field, the caregivers go unnoticed and under appreciated. May 19th, 2017 was my last day with Amada Senior Care and it was with heavy heart to say goodbye, but my lives journey took me south to Florida for my daughters schooling. Unfortunately, at this time Amada doesn't have a branch in St. Petersburg, Fl yet, but as soon as they do I will be first in line to apply! If you are a potential client needing any kind of caregiving assistance or you are a caregiver looking for a lifelong amazing journey, then please heed my words, Amada Senior Care is as far as you need to look. If I could have taken my clients and the company with me, I would have in a heart beat. Amada Senior Care of Tacoma is beyond a 5 Star rating in my books! Thank You Robert or such an amazing opportunity and all of your outstanding support ♥ I'll definitely miss my Amada Family <3

Senior Housing Advising
When seniors or their loved ones begin to feel that they require more support than in-home care and assistance with basic ADLs, it may be time to consider transitioning to an assisted living community.
This is an emotional decision for everyone involved, and our goal at Amada Tacoma is to guide families through the placement process with wisdom, empathy, and competence.
For some seniors, an assisted living community, typically offering non-complex medical services, may be a good fit. Others may require a bit more support and may be better served in a nursing home or different type of care community.
The team at Amada Senior Care Tacoma has years of experience with senior care in University Place, Puyallup, and other nearby communities. As a result, we have deep knowledge of all local care communities and can make sure our clients find the ideal placement to suit their care needs, locations, lifestyles, and budgets.
We also rely on our extensive experience to help our clients make full use of all benefits available to them, including veterans’ benefits and long-term care insurance benefits. The costs of assisted living may intimidate many families, but we can help them make financial decisions with confidence. To further ease cost concerns, the Amada Tacoma team is pleased to offer our placement services free of charge.
When in-home care is no longer ideal for our clients, we are honored to guide them through this next phase. Our specialty is referring seniors to the right community or placement for them, which may 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
Many families who find themselves at odds with a senior loved one’s desire to remain as independent as possible don’t realize that there can be a middle-ground between constant supervision and simply hoping for the best. However, at Amada Senior Care Tacoma, we have developed a system called BeClose which makes use of the latest technology to help seniors maintain independence while reassuring their loved ones of their safety. The BeClose system is fully customizable and allows families to keep an eye on seniors through strategically-placed and non-intrusive monitors which then report to their emails or mobile devices. This way, seniors can go about their lives in peace and their families will be notified of any routine changes that may signal a need for extra support.
