Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale
Marva Kington, owner of Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale, relies on her personal experiences with senior care as a constant reminder of the difference a dedicated and compassionate caretaker can make for a family.
Marva says, “During my mother’s last years, she needed care beyond what my sisters and I could give her. We hired an agency, and they provided us with a caregiver. That caregiver really provided my mom with the kind of care she would have given to her own mother. It gave us peace of mind knowing that she was there taking care of my mom the way that we would have taken care of her if we were there.”
As a result of that experience with her mother, Marva and her team at Amada Fort Lauderdale are now dedicated to providing that same level of care for their neighbors in Cooper City, Plantation, Weston, Pembroke Pines, and other communities nearby.
At Amada, our home-care aides help seniors with activities of daily living such as bathing, eating, and providing medication reminders so that they can remain living in their homes. However, to us, the highest quality of senior care can only be provided if caregivers take the time to bond with their clients and truly understand their unique needs and desires. That way, we can help them with other activities that they have always enjoyed but may no longer be able to do on their own, like baking Mary’s grandson’s favorite cookies, or helping Steven maintain his beloved flower garden. Of course, it is essential that we assist with the ADLs that keep our clients safe and comfortable, but we are determined to do more than that for them. We want to enrich their lives and help them thrive.
If home care services aren’t what your family needs at this time, we can help you find the senior housing community that is best equipped to meet your loved one’s needs. We also have years of experience with senior care financial counseling, and we are confident that we can help you find the best way to pay for the care your loved one deserves.
At Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale, we realize that senior care is a family endeavor and that no family’s senior care journey is the same. We will support you and your loved ones as you navigate the logistic, financial, and emotional aspects of senior care—and we’ll make sure you feel confident that your beloved senior is in the very best hands.
Because, as Marva Kington says, “At Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale, our caregivers care for your family as if it were their own.”

Long-Term Care Insurance Claims Experts
At Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale, we know from our own personal experiences that excellent senior care is a service to an entire family, not just to the senior patient. Knowing that your loved one is receiving the same quality of care you would provide yourself is vastly reassuring, and allows you to spend quality time with a beloved senior rather than taking on a caregiver role. We at Amada Fort Lauderdale are committed to providing the highest quality of senior care for your loved one, so that we may improve and enrich their lives. Our family is also committed to supporting you and your family as you navigate all aspects of senior care.
“We’ll care for your loved one with the same patience and compassion you would provide for them.”
Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Senior Care Fort Lauderdale, we understand why many of the seniors we work with wish to remain living in their homes—and we also understand that this isn’t always the safest or most appropriate option for them. The transition to an assisted living or senior housing environment can be an emotional and stressful time for all members of a family, but we can support you throughout the process and help you feel certain you have found the ideal new home for your loved one.
As you begin to investigate senior housing options, it’s important to consider why you or your loved one is making this transition and what level of care will be required. This will help us guide you to the right type of community. For example, if a senior is moving to simplify his or her life and live in a more social environment with peers, we may recommend an independent living or assisted living community. For clients who require more assistance with ADLs and would be safest with complex medical services in close proximity, a nursing home or skilled nursing environment may be more appropriate.
Once we have decided what type of environment will be most beneficial to a senior’s physical well-being, we evaluate factors that will impact their emotional fulfillment. There are so many senior living communities to choose from in the Fort Lauderdale area, and we have worked with most of them. We can guide you and your family to the community most in line with a senior’s preferences such as location, size of a community, setting, activities and hobbies, and general lifestyle.
At Amada Fort Lauderdale, we know that there is an ideal senior housing placement for each senior—and we know how to help them find it. We also know how to help clients take advantage of all programs and resources that can make it easier to afford the community of choice, including long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, and even life insurance.
We specialize in providing referrals to all types of senior housing, including:
- 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
At Amada, we are known for using the latest technology to expand and improve the senior care options available to our clients. One of these options is our revolutionary remote care system, BeClose, which allows families to monitor a senior loved one’s well-being from anywhere in the world.
BeClose is ideal for seniors who are determined to live independently at home and the families that worry about them, and is also a more affordable option than round-the-clock care. With BeClose, each family chooses from a range of home monitoring products to create the system that’s right for their unique situation. These products, which may include indoor/outdoor security cameras, button-free fall and emergency alerts, medication monitors, and even automated door locks, are all designed to sync to a secure mobile app. Families can log on to their BeClose app at any time, from anywhere, to see real-time updates on their senior loved one. BeClose also notifies families when a senior exhibits changes in routine or behavior that may require intervention.
With BeClose, you can virtually “be close” to the senior you love, wherever you go. To learn more about this and other senior care options in the Fort Lauderdale area, Click Here for a Free Consultation with a Member of the Amada Team.
Veterans Assistance Programs
We understand that the potential costs of senior care and assisted living may seem overwhelming to our clients, which is why we have become experts in senior care financing. There are so many programs and resources to help seniors and families cover the cost of care, but our clients may not be familiar with them all. One program we often recommend to our clients with military experience is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance provides monthly financial aid to wartime veterans and surviving spouses to help pay for assistance with ADLs. For more information on this and other benefits for veterans, please Click here for a Free Veteran’s Care Needs Consultation.
How is Aid and Attendance Eligibility Determined?
- To be considered a wartime veteran, a person must have served at least one day of active duty during a time of war and a total of 90 days’ active duty overall.
- Veterans with dishonorable discharge do not qualify for Aid and Attendance.
- Claimants must require help from another person to complete activities of daily living.
- ADLs can vary, and may include meal preparation, mobility, transportation, bathing, and more.
- Claimants must currently spend most of their income on care.
- Benefits are awarded relative to the percentage of income spent on care.
- Claimants’ assets must be below a limit set by the VA.
- Age and financial need are key in the determination of this limit.
VA benefits such as Aid and Attendance can significantly increase your financial flexibility when it comes to paying for senior care. These benefits are:
- Paid in addition to military pensions.
- Tax free.
- Sent directly to claimants every month by the US Treasury.
