Amada Senior Care Jackson
John Merrell views his role as owner of Amada Senior Care Jackson as part of a larger commitment to our entire community. To John, a community’s elders are its foundation, so providing outstanding care to make the lives of our senior clients safer, easier, and more enjoyable has a ripple effect to improve the lives of everybody around them. Through his passion and dedication, John and his team have made Amada one of the most highly respected senior care companies in the region, serving Pearl, Flowood, Ridgeland, Madison, Richland, Brandon, and beyond. As John says, “Our senior citizens are a constant source of wisdom and inspiration. At Amada Jackson, our goal is to show our clients how much we value them by allowing them to live with the dignity they deserve and finding meaningful ways to enrich their lives on a daily basis.”
At Amada Jackson, we realize that it is an honor and reflection of trust for our clients to invite us into their lives and their homes. We strive to provide each client with high-quality, compassionate care and companionship.
Of course, we perform regular tasks associated with in-home care, such as meal preparation and housekeeping. However, we believe it is important for us to go beyond the to-do list and get to know each client personally. This allows us to impact their lives in a much more profound way—whether we are scheduling play-dates with the grandchildren, taking a stroll with a client to see a neighbor’s garden, or reading their favorite books to them.
We may enter our clients’ homes as strangers, but our caregivers quickly become extensions of their families.

This means that we regularly monitor our caregivers, check in with clients to make sure we continue to exceed their expectations, and even help them explore and transition to assisted living communities should the need arise. This is how have become an invaluable asset to each of our clients and to the entire Jackson community.

Submit your review
Our several month long relationship with Amada in Jackson, MS, was exceptional. The people, from ownership to caregiver, provided an incredible quality of services. They were thoughtful, kind, thorough, professional, compassionate, and treated us like family. Amada was always flexible and willing to adjust schedules and caregivers based on our unique needs. As the needs increased, Amada was there to provide more service, provided incredible advise, increased hours as needed, and sent additional caregivers when asked to in order to make our Mom comfortable at home. As is the case with many families experiencing end-of-life decisions for aging parents, friends, neighbors, we were new to the process, and knew little about resources available to us. Amada management was always willing and able to provide advise, resources, and knowledge - often when those options discussed would have meant lessening their role and therefore their profits. We could not have handled the last several months of Mom's life with the extraordinary care provided by Amada. These people love what they do, and it shows in their work every day. The peace of mind they brought us by providing absolutely exceptional in-home care for our Mom is something we will never forget, and the relationships developed during this time has resulted in lasting friendships.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are in this together and really appreciate your trust in our team. John Merrell
Senior Housing Advising with Amada
The team at Amada Senior Care in Jackson has years of assisting seniors in a variety of ways, which means that we truly understand the complex emotions our clients and their families experience as they consider transitioning from home to a senior living community. Our experience has also helped us gain in-depth knowledge of the many senior housing options in and around the Jackson area, which makes us uniquely well-qualified to help you find the right place.
A key part of the senior living placement process is to honestly evaluate a senior’s care needs. Seniors who are able to live relatively independently but may require assistance with some activities of daily living (ADLs) often thrive in an assisted living community. For clients who require medication dispensing or more complex medical services, we recommend one of the excellent nursing homes in the Jackson area.
In addition to evaluating a client’s care needs, it is also essential that we understand each client’s lifestyle, location, and activity preferences as well as their budgets. This allows us to find the living situation that will be most fulfilling to them. We are also experts at helping our clients navigate the financial aspects of senior care, and can help them take advantage of long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, and other non-traditional sources of funding.
At Amada Senior Care in Jackson, we never charge our clients for our assisted living placement services. We see this simply as an extension of our mission to enrich their lives.
If you or your loved one has considered transitioning to a care community in this area, we can help you explore your options and find the perfect fit. We have relationships with many facilities in Jackson and surrounding communities, 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
Technology to Improve Senior Care
At Amada Senior Care Jackson, our goal is to find the right senior care solution for each client and his or her family. Often, this involves striking a compromise between a senior’s desire for independence and a family’s concerns for his or her safety. Fortunately for our clients, we can meet everyone’s needs with a customized BeClose home monitoring package.
BeClose allows our clients to make use of the latest technology to ensure the safety and well-being of their senior loved ones from anywhere. Clients can choose from an array of devices to customize a solution that meets their needs without paying for products they don’t need. Some of our most popular BeClose products include automated door locks and thermostats, medication monitors, fall and intruder alerts, and indoor and outdoor security cameras.
Each device in the BeClose line has been designed to be discrete and easy to use, and they all regularly report to clients’ families through a state-of-the-art mobile app. This allows families to not only monitor a senior’s daily activities, but also to identify any changes in behavior or routine that may become problematic if not addressed promptly.
With BeClose, our clients can enjoy living independently at home while their families remain confident in their safety. If you think BeClose by Amada may be a good solution for your family’s senior care needs, please contact us for a Free Care Needs Consultation.
Programs to Assist Veterans
When veterans or their spouses require senior care, it is important that they understand the types of government assistance available to them.
