Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina
Tracy Bissett, owner of Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina, is grateful and proud that she is able to serve the seniors in our community, including Rocky Mount, Wilson, New Bern, Goldsboro, Kinston, Martin County, Nash County, Greene County, and beyond. Tracy has always lived in Eastern North Carolina: she went to high school in Rocky Mount, married her high school crush after graduating from Meredith College, then returned home with her husband to raise their two boys here, surrounded by family. Tracy says, “Family is so important to me, and I am really lucky that mine is right here in this area. At Amada, we know how important good care is for a family—and when you work with Amada, you are our family. We’ll treat you just like one of us.”
At Amada Eastern North Carolina, we provide non-medical in-home care for seniors. We know how important it is for our clients to continue to do the things they love at home, so we help make life easier and more enjoyable. Like other senior care companies, we assist clients with cooking, light housekeeping, bathing, transportation, meal preparation and other activities of daily living. But what makes Amada Eastern North Carolina special is that we go beyond those tasks to enrich our clients’ lives, whether that’s done through sharing a song, taking a senior on a drive to enjoy the autumn foliage, or helping clients call their loved ones to catch up.
Our care also extends beyond the home environment, because we truly desire to support our clients and their loved ones throughout their senior care experience. If living at home is no longer the best option for a senior, we will take them and their loved ones into the community to find the ideal place to meet their specific needs. If a family is unsure how to pay for senior care, we’ll help them find resources to make it more affordable.
As Linda says, we at Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina love our clients like family, so we do whatever we can to make sure they are safe, comfortable, and happy.

In October of 2018, one of my oldest and dearest friends had ovarian cancer and was put on hospice. Her best girlfriends, siblings and mom took care of her as best we could until it became just too much for all of us. It became more important for her to have the best care and we felt that began falling through the cracks because of our everyday lives. That’s when I called my college friend, Tracey Bissett at Amada Care. I knew she would take care of her like a daughter,sister and friend with the respect and care she deserved! Amada Care came in and worked with Hospice daily as well as all of her friends and family. We were all treated as important members of the family. Her main caregiver was will us until the end and held all our hands every step of the way. I can’t say enough good things about them. The family even used Amada Care for her mother’s care after her death. Amada Care will always be a beacon of light during such a dark time.......
I cannot overstate my happiness with Tracey, Jennifer, Alma, and everyone at Amada. They were always available and attentive, and seemed genuinely interested in my mother's well-being. It is never easy to deal with a person that has advanced dementia, yet they never wavered. They became much like family very quickly, and certainly always treated my mother as if she was part of their family.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We enjoy working with your mother and your family so much. She has been a joy to be with. Please know that we are always here for your mother. Thank you again, and please spread the word about Amada!
Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina, we understand that the transition into an assisted living or residential care environment is often difficult for seniors as well as their loved ones. Fortunately for our clients, this is an area where our team excels, and we can break the process down into manageable steps and guide you through them. The owner of Amada Eastern North Carolina, Tracy Bissett, says, “If the time comes that being in the home just isn’t the best fit anymore, we’ll help you go out into the community and find the place that meets your loved one’s unique needs.”
The first step towards finding the right residential care environment for your loved one is an honest assessment of his or her care needs, since this will dictate the type of community we will focus our search on. Seniors who are still relatively independent but need occasional help with activities of daily living may find an assisted living community is best for them. For our clients who require a higher level of assistance and/or complex medical services, a nursing home may be more appropriate.
Once we know the type of care community that will be most beneficial to a senior, we then consider factors that will impact his or her enjoyment of life there. We have spent time with residents and staff from most of the facilities throughout Eastern North Carolina, so we can guide our clients to the placement most suitable for their unique needs, lifestyle, activity level, location preferences, and budget.
The well-being and happiness of our senior clients and their loved ones is important to our Amada team, so we are happy to offer our senior living advisory services at no charge. We can even help families learn more about non-traditional payment options like veterans’ benefits, long-term care insurance, and even life insurance policies to make it easier to afford the care their loved one deserves.
At Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina, we can refer families to the senior living environment that best meets their 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
“BeClose” through Home Care Technology
For many of the families we work with at Amada Eastern North Carolina, there comes a time when their desire to make sure their senior loved one is safe conflicts with his or her determination to remain living independently at home. Working with a home-care aide is not always the best solution for such families, perhaps due to resistance from a senior or financial concerns, but we can offer a revolutionary system to put everyone’s mind at ease: BeClose home monitoring by Amada.
BeClose is a remote care system each family can fully customize by paying only for the products that meet their needs. Some of our most popular options include indoor and outdoor security cameras, automated door locks and thermostats, medication monitors, and alarms that immediately notify families and nearby staff of falls, intruders, or other emergencies. The devices in the BeClose system are all designed to be easy to use, and the entire system sends regular updates to families through a secure mobile app. BeClose also notifies families of changes in a senior’s behavioral patterns or routines that may need to be addressed to ensure their continued health and safety.
Thanks to this innovative remote care system by Amada, you can always “BeClose” to your loved one—no matter where life takes you. For more information on senior care technology, contact Amada for a Free BeClose consultation.
Veterans Assistance Programs
Our team at Amada Senior Care Eastern North Carolina understands that many families have concerns about the cost of senior care, and we are experts at helping them find the right resources to ensure they can afford the best care. For our clients who are veterans or surviving spouses of veterans, there are a number of government programs to help fund senior care, including the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance provides monthly financial support to eligible seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living. To learn more about this and other senior care resources for veterans, contact us for a Free Veterans’ Care Needs Consultation.
How is Aid and Attendance Eligibility Determined?
- Qualified veterans must have served a minimum of 90 days’ active duty, with at least one day served during a period of war.
- Veterans with a dishonorable discharge are not eligible.
- Claimants must currently require assistance with activities of daily living from another person.
- Qualifying activities may include bathing, eating, meal preparation, walking, and others.
- Claimant must be currently spending the majority of his or her income on care expenses.
- Benefits are awarded, up to a maximum amount, in relation to the percentage of income spent on care.
- Claimant must not have assets that exceed a limit set by the VA.
- The VA considers age, financial need, and other factors in the determination of this limit.
Through the use of VA benefits, many of our clients have gained the financial flexibility to secure a higher level of care or move to the care community of their choice. VA Aid and Attendance benefits are:
- Paid monthly directly to claimants by the US Treasury.
- Tax free.
- Not subject to repayment as long as claimant remains eligible.
- Paid in addition to pensions.
