Amada Senior Care North San Antonio
Amada Senior Care Franchise Locations are Independently Owned and Operated
John and Johanna Paschal, owners of Amada Senior Care North San Antonio, know from personal experience that it can be nearly impossible for families to find the best senior care for their loved one without guidance and access to the proper resources.
According to John, “Like many of the families we work with at Amada, I didn’t really think about my parents getting older. Then my mother took a bad fall and was hospitalized. As her discharge approached, I found myself working with my sister and my wife to find the best care option for my mother. We hadn’t done any planning for this kind of situation, and had no idea what resources were out there to help us. We managed to find a few places that could care for my mother, but because we were rushed, we felt forced to settle for a lower quality of care than she deserved. We felt confusion. We felt pain. And we felt guilt.”
Johanna adds, “At that time, we were so concerned for John’s mother as we frantically searched for the right way to care for her. It was so hard—until we found Amada. The Amada team we worked with helped us find the right resources to see our family through this difficult time, and that’s what we want to do for you. We’ll be with you every step of the way and treat you like one of our own.”
At Amada Senior Care North San Antonio, we are dedicated to helping each family we work with find the ideal senior care options for their unique situations. For some, this means matching them with the home-care aide who will best complement a senior’s personality and help with activities of daily living. If living at home is no longer the right option for a beloved senior, we will guide him or her to the assisted living facility that best meet his or her physical, emotional, and financial needs.
John, Johanna, and the rest of our Amada team don’t want other families to feel that their options are limited because they need to formulate a care plan quickly. We also never families to compromise the level of care a senior receives due to financial concerns. We have become experts at helping our clients find the best ways to pay for quality senior care and can help you make use of long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, and even life insurance policies to ensure your loved one receives the care he or she deserves. We can also help clients and their families plan ahead for potential senior care needs in the future.
Our goal at Amada Senior Care North San Antonio is to ensure that each of the seniors we serve is able to age with dignity and live in safety, comfort, and happiness.

We were leaving town for three weeks and were worried about leaving my brother alone in his house after he fell several times. I called AMADA and was immediately scheduled for an in-home appointment with my brother and AMADA owner, John Paschal. After an hour of discussing our needs, we had caregivers scheduled and ready to go. They arrived on time each day, helped with household chores that were difficult for my brother, drove him to the store in his car, helped with meals and positively interacted with him. Five Stars!!
Amada was recommended by my Long Term Care Insurance company. The overall quality of services is definitely a 10 with emphasis on the caregiver's timely arrival, competence and courteous nature.
I was referred by a friend in the health field when an emergency need arose. Excellent services were provided for my mom on very short notice. I would highly recommend Amada.
Amada provides great services for their clients. The staff is caring and hard working. I highly recommend them for you or your loved one.
Our service with Amada was great! The care providers were very punctual and pleasant. We highly recommend their services.
Amada came highly recommended. The immediate response by a live person when an emergency arose is what mattered most. Thank you so much for being so compassionate in the short time you took care of my father and in the time after his passing.
I was in need of home care for my wife and was referred by the hospital care managers. I chose Amada from the very first conversation on the phone with the owner. The level of communication and care by the owners, care coordinator and caregivers was excellent. I highly recommend Amada for your loved one.
It's hard to pick just on thing about the excellent service. What initially convinced me to choose Amada was John's absolutely fantastic efforts he made to get the ball rolling with our Long Term Care Insurance Company. These efforts removed the financial burden and worry from my shoulders and resulted in our getting maximum amount from our insurance. Amada's scheduling of caregivers always went very smooth and they always ensured our needs were being met. The actual caregivers we had were priceless, just outstanding...they had become like family! Really, your business is without equal, I have only good thoughts and memories with the service provided for my husband. When my turn comes, rest assured Amada will be the first I call. Thank you Elizabeth W.
Amada's response time, caregiver's work ethic and overall quality of service is excellent.
My husband needed care upon discharge from rehab. We had several choices, but immediately we were treated in a professional and trustworthy manner by Amada, and that made our decision an easy one. The selection of caregivers and extensive background checks also gave us confidence. We truly appreciated the kindness and concern for our welfare and our needs being met on a continuing basis.
As a professional, it is imperative that I have reputable, dependable, and validated resources to refer people to when they are considering Senior Living options. The Amada team is just that. I know I can refer them with complete peace of mind for an optimum experience, continuing that trust that has been built! The knowledge, experience, and reputation that this team executes faithfully and professionally is my personal top recommendation for anyone considering care options-honestly, you will not need to look any further!
We were referred by a friend that only gives referrals to best companies. The care and service Amada provided didn't disappoint! We needed to arrange for care at the last minute and on a holiday weekend for my father; John and Johanna did everything possible to make it happen, for which we are very grateful. The caregivers, Carole and Shay were excellent, so kind and compassionate. Service was excellent. Thank you Amada!
We would definitely recommend Amada North to our family and friends. We appreciate their competent, friendly caregivers and especially love our regular caregiver, Karen! We also appreciate the long term care insurance interface-initial activation and on-going filing of claims.
Amada North San Antonio has been a great home care provider for Mom. John and Johanna Paschal (company owners) have taken a personal interest in working with me and Mom. More importantly, Mom's main caregiver, Barbara , has been fantastic. Everyone with Amada has treated Mom as if Mom is their own Mom. Very caring in every way. I would recommend Amada North to anyone seeking a caregiver for a friend or family member.
This is a team of wonderful and caring individuals. that have provided care for both my father and my mother. I can never thank them enough.
Amada was recommended by a friend that used their services. Thank goodness I called! We were in need of care and specifically needed assistance with activating our Long Term Care insurance policy. John took care of the initial call for activation, helped us complete the start of care claim documents and they continue to process my claims on a regular basis. Amada customizes our schedule to meet our specific needs. The compassion of our caregiver is outstanding and the office staff is always cheerful and shows great patience with any needs we have.
After our mother had a sudden hospitalization and rehab stay last fall, we began wading through the list of senior care organizations. Thank goodness we ended up with Amada Senior Care. To begin with, we appreciate the fact that we can always get a friendly person on the phone when we have a question or need to request a change in the schedule. It is evident that they truly care. That level of care is also reflected in the kind of professional, compassionate caregivers they hire. I don't know what we would do without our mom's caregiver, Linda. She is the best!
AMADA Senior Care has been a life saver for my husband and me. Their caregivers have helped with his care for over two years and for me the last six months. AMADA caregivers are caring, compassionate people who are selected with care. They are extremely competent and skilled. I recommend Amada to anyone in need of assistance with every day living.
About ten months ago, I heard about Amada from a casual acquaintance and then again when referred by a local rehab hospital. The office staff has been prompt, efficient and accommodating at a moments notice when extra care is needed. Most recently, I was able to go out of town with confidence knowing my parents would be safe and secure in the hands of Amada and their care team. Thank you Amada for taking amazing care of my parents!
As an employee..... If not daily, then in the least, once a week. I/we are always being motivated by the way our office personnel constantly compliments us on doing a great job!!! Thank you Amanda for giving me the opportunity to work with you and your family of clients!!!
I signed up for care after attending an impressive Long Term Care presentation by John at my senior community. John was very thorough when assisting with my Long Term Care Policy activation and made it easy for me to understand. Amada is always willing to help and answer any of my questions. Their caregiver's compassion and work ethic are a 10 in my book!
Amada North San Antonio is excellent! My caregiver, Carmen, was terrific. What was appreciated most was the constant attention and follow up to all my concerns.
Amada's thoughtfulness for their clients, as well as employees, speaks volumes about their compassion with senior care in our community. Amada North San Antonio is a wonderful company!
Excellent and prompt service assisting with Long Term Care activation and filing the required documents on a consistent basis.
When it comes to taking care of our parents, my siblings and I would be absolutely lost without the expert guidance of Amada Senior Care. John and Johanna reviewed our parent's long-term care insurance policies and helped us gain the maximum benefits available. They suggested an independent living facility that met our parent's (and our) needs. Amada provides daily caregivers who give our parents loving and compassionate assistance with their everyday needs. When we are ready to move up to the next tier of senior care, we know that John and Johanna will be there to guide us every step of the way. Thank you - we couldn't do it without you!
Amada has been great! With the assistance of their compassionate caregivers, my husband and I maintain some of our independence; we are able to remain somewhat active and social. We highly recommend Amada for your care needs.
I LOVE working for this company. I have worked for several different home health companies throughout my career and I have to say that walking into Amada Senior Care North San Antonio was like walking into my own home. The entire staff from John and Johana to the office girls were nothing but kind and caring and made me feel at home. Their professionalism was superb and i felt welcomed.They are definately a team atmosphere. As for client care and scheduling me for client care they were very accommadating to the hours i needed. I have felt valued and accepted with this company. I would highly recommend Amada to anyone looking for a good honest reliable company and wouldn't hesitate to hire them to take care for my own family member as well.
John is very impressionable and quick to respond. The caregivers are great and the office staff is exceptional.
Amada North was strongly recommended by our trusted family physician. Amada is great, I appreciate the fact that John Paschal dropped everything to give us fast, courteous and personal service. I would highly recommend Amada Senior Care North services!
Amada is doing an excellent job. I appreciate the personalized service and my Caregiver is outstanding!!!
I would like to express our happiness and gratitude with our caregiver... Sandra also is a great team player and works very well with all those involved in Dad's care. She has built a relationship with everyone she meets.
I appreciate the management and staff responsiveness.
Everyone I interacted with gave exceptional service! I could not ask for better service. The caregiver gave warm and compassionate care to my father who has a traumatic brain injury.

I met John and Johnna with Amada Senior Care and I saw immediately the passion they have in caring for seniors.I recently referred a personal friends to Amada Senior Care and John assisted them with care in the home and was able to help them review their long term care policy. Every time I see my friend she talks about how kind and caring John was in a time of great need.
It is a great place to work everyone really cares about you and is ready to help in any way that they can....if I could do more stars I would
Amada Senior Care is a wonderful company to work for. Johanna and Britni has always been helpful and understanding about the hours I can work and family emergencies. I am also happy with my hours and the clients that I work for. Thank You Amada!!
After my dad had a car accident and I had an urgent need to place my dad in a senior living center. The cost and options were overwhelming. I meet John at a Starbucks where he was meeting with another family and asked him what he did after he was done with his meeting. After he explained his company and services I knew he was exactly what we needed. After meeting with him and telling him our needs and budget he found us about 8 great properties. With his knowledge and experience, we narrowed it down to 4. Then he took the time to tour properties with us and helped by asking the property managers questions for us that I never thought to ask but were extremely important. We could not have found this perfect property and at the price, we wanted without John. This is not only John’s job but it seems like his passion. I felt that he truly cared and had my father’s best interest at heart. He was a true God send to our family, and we could not have made this move without him.
I have worked for the Amada Senior Care Franchise for 5 years now. My husband and I are military so we get moved around a lot. Everywhere that we are stationed there seems to be an Amada! I have never applied for another agency; Amada is the best of the best. The support from the office is phenomenal. You never walk in blind to a clients home. Every client has a careplan that is uniquely customized to them and included all of the necessary information that I need to be able to go in and deliver the world class service that my clients deserve. If you are considering Amada for a loved one, I promise you, this is the best service for them! And if you are looking for employment, there is no place better! The clients, the staff, and the caregivers may make up the business, but we are a family here. If you don't trust my obviously biased opinion, go see for yourself! You'll immediately understand why I am an Amada fan for life!
I have known John since he started working with my parents. He took their Long Term Care Insurance and made it work so well. He helped them get their bathroom remodeled. AND THE INSURANCE PAID FOR IT. His company helps my parents and their caregivers are awesome. He is caring and wonderful.
I personally have worked with a couple senior care companies, and I can not express enough how Amada Senior Care exceeded any expectations. The genuine compassion shown by Rick, the owner, was second to none. We needed care for a loved one immediately, and Amada provided an exceptional caregiver within hours of reaching out to them. I can not be more pleased with the attention to detail, compassion and dedication Amada provided. If you are in need of someone to care for a loved one, I strongly suggest calling Amada Senior Care first. You won't be disappointed.
Amanda Senior Care has been a great place to work. Amada cares greatly for their caregivers and their clients. They go out of their way to help where help is needed and to anticipate the needs of all of us. It feels like "family" to work for Amada Senor Care! All of the clients I've been privileged to help have said that Amada Senior Care, in specific John and Johanna, hung the moon! If you're a person who's looking for care, look no further! You're in great hands with Amada. If you're a caregiver who's looking to give your love to others, then come to Amada and join our family. You'll be glad you did!
My family came across Amada Senior Care while my grandfather was recuperating at a rehabilitation center. At first, I was skeptical, but once I spoke to John, after a couple of phone conversations, I was on board - and so were my grandparents. The staff has been nothing but kind, supportive and professional. I had a checklist of questions and each and every question was answered. I'm not sure what I would have done if John & Johnna did not step in and care for my elderly grandparents. There have been many times I thought I would have to move 2500 miles back to take care of them. Thank you, Amada Senior Care. I'm not sure where I'd be without your support/kindness and true sincerity.
Amada Senior Care does an amazing job in providing necessary care to seniors in a compassionate and caring manner. They make their clients and client's family feel comfortable and taken care of. Thank You!
I have worked for Amada Senior Care for the last three years. Amada Senior Care is a high quality non-medical in home care service. They are caring and professional and go above and beyond for their clients to make sure that they are comfortable, but most importantly safe, in their own homes. Every part of the Amada experience is customized for each individual client. And each client has a fully detailed care plan that is accessible to us (caregivers) either via the caregiver portal, at the client's place of residence, or the office so that we (caregivers) are never walking into a situation blind. That way, from the time we walk in the door, our only priority is your loved ones.Because at Amada we're more than just an agency. We're a family. Come and see what we're all about.
We contacted Amada mid-Dec 2015 as my mother was coming home from the hospital and we started looking for home care. There are so many agencies out there and we had talked to quite a few of them - some referred to by friends. When we first started talking to John, right away he set his organization ahead of others with his responsiveness and patience as he answered all of our questions and dealt with me, my sister and brother. He personally came to our mom's house to meet with us, spending over 2 hours with us to ease our minds and review mom's case. In an extremely short period of time (within 3 days I think), they found a qualified care giver that was close to where we lived in order to shorten response time and increase reliability. They made us feel as if we were their priority. Interactions with them even after my mom's death led to enforcing our belief of their strong ethics and character. We highly recommend this agency.
While I was recovering from a fractured femur at a rehabilitation facility I was introduced to Amada Senior Care. John came and explained the care we could get when we returned home. This greatly relieved my anxiety. Kristine was my caregiver. She was friendly, courteous and eager to help.She assisted me with personal care and encouraged me to keep up with my physical therapy exercises. She drove us to our various doctor's appointments.When I was faced with another surgery she encouraged me. I enjoyed conversing with her. This was a great help for my wife also.
A wonderful company to work for, always going above and beyond to make sure your taken care of. Very caring and understandable, I really enjoy my clients as well.
Amada is a GREAT company to work for!!! I can't say enough about Mr & Mrs. Pascal!!!! Nicest people in the world!!! Very professional and organized company all together!!! I am PROUD to of been with Amada since Day 1 🙂
Senior Housing Advising
Some families begin discussing senior care and assisted living long before they are necessary, so they have plenty of time to weigh all of their options. For other families, however, an incident such as a bad fall or health crisis can suddenly present a need for senior care for which they were not prepared. At Amada Senior Care North San Antonio, our senior housing advisory team has extensive experience in this area and we are confident we can guide you and your family to the right placement, regardless of your unique situation.
There are so many senior housing options available to our clients in this area that we recommend immediately narrowing their searches according to the level of care each type of community provides. For example, if a client wants to transition to an environment with fewer responsibilities and more social opportunities, an assisted living community is more likely to offer the lifestyle they seek. If a client requires a higher level of care and assistance with ADLs or needs access to complex medical services, a nursing home or skilled nursing facility might be a more appropriate placement.
Our personal and professional experiences with residential care and assisted living facilities in and around North San Antonio has given us insight into the daily workings of each place that can only be gathered over time. We use this knowledge to guide seniors to the environment best suited for their personal needs and preferences. It is essential that we consider factors such as a senior’s style of socialization, activity level, location preferences, and cultural background so that we can help them find the right fit.
Whether you and your family are investigating senior housing options you don’t anticipate needing for years into the future, or you need to quickly find a place where your senior loved one can receive the care he or she deserves, cost is likely to be a major concern. At Amada, we want every senior to receive the highest quality of care, so we have become experts at helping families explore all payment options available to them. With our guidance to resources like veterans’ benefits, long-term care insurance, and even life insurance policies, many Amada clients have been able to afford to move to the community of their choice.
At Amada, we never recommend our clients to an assisted living community or nursing home that we would not feel confident moving our own loved ones to. Contact us to learn more about senior housing options in the North San Antonio area, 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
