Amada Senior Care Knoxville
As the owner of Amada Senior Care Knoxville, Jeff Pell understands that top-quality, compassionate care by a trained caregiver makes a difference in helping to preserve the loving relationships between family members.
Says Jeff, “After graduating from college at the University of Tennessee and serving nine years in the U.S. Navy, I moved back home. One of the most influential people in my life was my grandmother. Everyone in my family simply called her ‘Nanny.’ My mother kept Nanny in the home and cared for her for many years after she developed emphysema. At the time there were very few senior in-home care options in our community. I saw the hardship it sometimes put on my mother, who was working full time while still trying to care for my grandmother in the home.”
Jeff and his Amada Knoxville team are dedicated to providing personally meaningful senior home care to families living in the Knoxville-area communities of Anderson, Blount, Claiborne, Cocke, Cumberland, Greene, Grainger, Hamblin, Jefferson, Knox, Louden, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Rhea, Roane, Scott, Sevier, Union and far beyond.

Submit your review
After working with numerous senior home care companies and being very disappointed we came across Amada Senior Care of Knoxville. Jeff has helped us navigate through the necessary paperwork of my father's long term care insurance and helped us to get the process underway for possible Aid and Assistance through the V.A. From the very beginning Jeff has been willing to help us with all of our needs and it is apparent that he truly cares about the people his company serves. The caregivers have been very dependable and caring. We highly recommend Amada Senior Care of Knoxville to anyone looking for quality in home care.
Amada has been a great blessing to us from the first contact onward in caring for my wife! Jeff responded immediately to
our initial phone inquiry and made an appointment to make a home visit to assess needs. He has shown great expertise in working with our long term care insurance company and the claims process has been smooth and flawless. The caregivers provided by Amada
have been superb! They have been dependable, congenial, caring, compassionate, and enthusiastically willing and able to do whatever we've asked. They have relieved me of some of my
household chores and caregiving responsibilities which enables me to be more of a husband. The "icing on the cake" is that my wife really enjoys the company of the Amada caregivers. I recommend Amada without reservation to anyone who needs a caregiver!
Amada is the best senior care company to work with! Their communication is prompt and informational while they also work well to fully explain services to better meet your needs. You can tell Jeff and Kristi genuinely care about each and every person they come in contact with. Amazing company!
Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Senior Care Knoxville, we realize that in-home care may not be enough to meet the needs of some seniors and that our clients may one day need to consider transitioning to an environment where they can get a little more support.
We also realize that the prospect of moving to an assisted living or senior care community may be intimidating to our clients and their loved ones on a number of levels.
The transition to a care community may be new to you, but we have years of experience helping seniors find the ideal living situations to meet their needs in the Greater Knoxville area, including neighborhoods in Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, Roane, Cocke, Union counties and beyond. We encourage our clients to rely on our in-depth knowledge so they can feel confident that they have found the right place for their lifestyles.
When considering a care community or assisted living, it is crucial that we honestly evaluate the unique needs and preferences of each client. Some seniors may do best in a nursing home where more complex medical care is available, while others may benefit most from an assisted living community where they can live more independently and still get help with ADLs (activities of daily living).
Many seniors and their families hesitate to consider transitioning to a care community because they are worried about costs. At Amada Senior Care Knoxville, we never want financial concerns to prevent our clients from enjoying safe and happy lives. We always provide our placement services for no cost, and our advisers can help families take full advantage of resources like long-term care insurance and veterans’ programs to help them fit superior care into their budgets. We love serving others, and do what is right for our clients regardless of the bottom line.
Our goal is to ensure that each of our clients is safe and happy, whether this is accomplished through in-home care or referral to the most suitable place for this stage of their lives, 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

Veterans Assistance Programs
A large number of our clients in the Knoxville metropolitan statistical area (including parts of Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, Greene, Hamblen and other counties) have served our nation as veterans or as the spouses of veterans. Yet many of them don’t realize that they may be entitled to significant financial assistance through the VA Aid and Attendance program. Aid and Attendance is specifically for wartime veterans and their surviving spouses who require assistance with activities of daily living. The veterans’ advocates at Amada can help you or your loved one take full advantage of this program and other resources so that the best care is within your reach.
Factors Determining Aid and Eligibility Eligibility:
- To qualify for these VA benefits, a veteran or veteran spouse must have served at least one day during wartime and at least 90 days total active duty.
- Veterans with a dishonorable discharge are excluded.
- Eligible applicants must require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) from another person.
- ADLs may include finance management, bathing, walking, hygiene, and others.
- Eligible applicants must spend most of their current income on care and assistance with ADLs.
- The amount of financial assistance granted depends on the applicant’s care requirements and income.
- The applicant’s assets must not exceed an amount determined by the VA.
- This threshold is determined by the applicant’s age and financial need.
Through VA Aid and Attendance benefits, seniors have increased financial flexibility regarding their care plans and potential assisted living placement. Aid and Attendance is:
- Paid monthly and no repayment is necessary.
- Paid directly to claimants by the United States Treasury.
