Amada Senior Care Lexington
James Bernoski and Laural Strong, owners of Amada Senior Care Lexington, know firsthand what a difference quality care can make. Both experienced registered nurses in critical care settings, including the emergency room, James and Laural have personally witnessed many of the gaps in the senior care continuum. One of the most concerning care gaps occurs when a senior patient leaves a facility and returns home. “Family members don’t know who to contact,” says James, “Mom and dad may still need help but there aren’t many resources available to help them.”
This scenario was far too common in their nursing experience; James and Laural knew they needed to do something to help close the gap. That something turned out to be the purchase of an Amada Senior Care franchise.“Laural and I wanted to make a difference in the care gap,” says James, “At Amada Senior Care of Lexington, we are not only able to provide the highest quality of care to seniors, but we are also able to give their families the peace of mind they deserve.”
As nurses, and additionally for Laural as an Air Force veteran with 12 years of service, the franchise business partners understand the struggles faced by many modern-family caregivers, especially those referred to as the sandwich generation.“Caregiving can be stressful, time-consuming, and emotionally exhausting. It can be difficult for families to juggle work, children, and other obligations and still find time to properly care for an aging parent or loved one,” says Laural, “Home care provides a means for family caregivers to reduce the burden so they can focus more on being a son, daughter, or friend.”
For Amada Lexington, their home care business is more than just another home care company – it’s a chance to give back to their senior community, including military veterans and their families. “It’s important to give back to the seniors that took care of us when we were growing up,” says Laural. The Amada Lexington team is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of their clients and they are prepared to go the extra mile for them.
James ends, “At the end of the day, Amada Lexington is on a mission to provide high-quality, individualized and compassionate care to the Lexington community through respect, integrity, and excellence with every client they serve.”

This is a wonderful service. I have used this service twice now and have plans to use them many more times. Amada Senior Care enables me to spend more time with the rest of the family, travel, decompress and hang-out with friends. All without guilt and resentment. My mother has the care and companionship she needs while I get me-time. The care is awesome. My mother really likes her care givers. Amada Senior Care puts my mind at ease when I have to leave my mother.
Great service. Great communication. The owner is very helpful. Most of the caregivers we've had do an awesome job. If someone calls in sick they get the shift covered as much as possible.
Amada Senior Care in Central Kentucky has been and continues to be a lifesaver for our family. We were connected with James and his team with Amada when our mom was in a care facility in Lexington. I was immediately impressed by James' professionalism and understanding of our need for qualified home care. He connected us with the most amazing caregiver. She has become a trusted member of our family and brings so much happiness to our mom. I truly don't know what we would have done as a family if we didn't find Amada!
Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Lexington, we realize in-home care may not be enough to meet the needs of all older adults. In this case, it may be more appropriate to move to an environment where you can receive the additional care you need, such as an assisted living facility.
The prospect of moving into an assisted living facility or a senior care community can be intimidating for numerous reasons. We can assure you, this event may be new to you but it is far from new to us.
Amada Senior Care has years of experience helping seniors navigate living arrangements in Lexington, Georgetown, Sadieville, Stamping Ground, Winchester, Corinth, Frankfort, and Versailles. We are confident we can help find the one that’s right for you.
When considering a care community or assisted living, it is crucial for us to honestly evaluate the unique needs and preferences of each client.
Some seniors find their quality of life enhances when they move into a nursing home where they have access to more complex medical care; others thrive in assisted living communities where they maintain a high level of independence, yet have resources available to help them with the activities of daily living. Every situation is different; it is our job to help you determine the option that’s right for you.
Many seniors and family members hesitate when thinking about transitioning to a care community because of the cost. At Amada, we never want you to sacrifice living a safe and happy life due to financial reasons. This is why we provide complimentary placement services.
Our advisors will ensure you take full advantage of your available resources such as long-term care insurance and veteran’s programs.
Our goal is to ensure each of our clients is taken care of, whether this is accomplished through in-home care or a referral to the most suitable place for this stage of your life. Your recommended placement can include any of the following listed below.
- 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
