Amada Senior Care Omaha
Ken Jenson, owner of Amada Senior Care Omaha, believes that senior care should always be a family endeavor. Providing the highest quality of care for a senior client is only part of the job for Ken and his team; just as important is providing support to the client’s family. A devoted family man, Ken and his team are committed to caring for the entire family. Says Ken, “If we’re there cooking breakfast for Mom, we will also cook breakfast for Dad. If we’re there doing laundry for Mom, we will also do Dad’s laundry. We’re there for the whole family.”
This commitment has earned Amada Senior Care Omaha its reputation for delivering superior senior care from Omaha, Lincoln, Elkhorn, Ralston and other cities and communities in Douglas, Sarpy, Cass, Saunders and Lancaster counties all the way to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Each member of the Amada Omaha team member not only has completed specialized training but also has expert knowledge and many years of experience in senior care. Emily Stevens, operations manager, started in senior care eight years ago as a CNA and entered into administration seven years ago. “We don’t like saying ‘no’ to anyone calling or inquiring,” Emily says. “We are committed to finding the most appropriate and effective solution to meet the needs of the senior client and of the family.”
Receptionist and scheduler Angie Preucil worked two years as a caregiver on the Amada Omaha team before moving into caregiver scheduling and recruiting. Ken’s son Danny Jenson fills multiple roles. In addition to earning a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from Brigham Young University, he also obtained a PhD in neuroscience from the Baylor College of Medicine. Learning and memory are his areas of educational emphasis.
Our goal at Amada Senior Care Omaha is to meet all of a family’s senior care needs and to exceed their expectations. We go beyond assisting them with activities of daily living (ADLs) like cooking and housekeeping because ultimately we want to enrich our client’s life in the most meaningful ways we can. Adding personal touches like discussing Aunt May’s favorite scripture with her, baking the chocolate chip cookies that Dad loves, or even giving Grandma a hand to keep her prized flower garden tidy allow us to show our senior clients that they are truly valued. It’s all about improving the quality of their lives.
And if the time should come when home is no longer the ideal environment for a senior, we will guide that senior and the family to the assisted living environment that ideally suits the senior’s unique needs and preferences. The Amada Omaha team will even continue to check in on clients who have moved to senior housing communities, just to make sure we haven’t missed an opportunity to be of service to them.
At Amada Omaha, we have learned through personal and professional experiences that the loved ones of senior care clients are often overlooked. We know how stressful and overwhelming it can feel to try to ensure the best care for a loved one who struggles due to his or her age. We believe that if we are to properly honor our calling to provide the best senior care possible, we must make sure that a senior client’s loved ones feel encouraged and supported throughout the journey.

Senior Housing Advising
At Amada Senior Care Omaha, we know that a the physical well-being of a senior loved one cannot be the sole focus of a family considering the transition to assisted living. We understand that other factors, such as a senior’s quality and enjoyment of life, proximity to family, and the cost of senior housing must also play a role in the placement process to ensure the ideal solution for each senior’s unique situation. This is something we have guided countless seniors and their families through, and it would be our pleasure to assist you and your loved ones as you weigh all of your senior housing options.
There are so many wonderful senior communities in the Omaha area, but this benefit can easily seem like a burden if a family doesn’t know how to identify the right place for their loved one. We suggest breaking the search down based on three main categories: physical care, emotional well-being, and cost.
Families new to the world of senior housing often don’t realize that there are many different types of facilities and communities, and that each offers a different level of care. For example, a nursing home will provide substantial assistance with ADLs and access to complex medical services, while an assisted living community will likely offer a more independent and active lifestyle. It is very important that we honestly evaluate the level of care a senior will need as we begin the search for senior housing.
While adequate physical and medical care is essential to a senior’s safety and comfort, it is only by meeting their emotional needs that we help them to thrive in their new homes. We at Amada have working relationships with nearly every senior community in the Omaha area, and we can direct you and your loved one to the one most in line with his or her personal needs and preferences. We will consider factors such as a home’s location, physical environment, social offerings and lifestyle, and more so you can feel confident the senior in your life will feel happy and fulfilled.
Of course, we know that cost is often a major concern for families considering the transition to senior housing. What you may not know, however, is that it is our goal to dramatically reduce or even eliminate your family’s senior care costs by helping you take advantage of long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, and even life insurance policies.
At Amada Omaha, we have a personal interest in making sure that each of the seniors we serve lives the most enriching life possible. This is why we offer our senior housing advisory services at no charge, and specialize in providing referrals to all types of care 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
Home Care Technology: “BeClose”
At Amada Omaha, we strive to find the ideal senior care solution for each family—and if that solution doesn’t exist, we’ll create it. With this in mind, one of the ways we have revolutionized senior care options is through our development of our remote care technology, the BeClose home monitoring system.
BeClose allows seniors to remain living independently in their homes, but gives their loved ones reassurance of their safety. We accomplish this by creating a customized home monitoring system for each family, using products such as automatic door locks and thermostats, indoor and outdoor security cameras, button-free alarms for falls and other emergencies, and even medication monitors. An experienced member of the Amada team will install these devices in a senior’s home in such a way that they will not interfere with his or her lifestyle, and the entire system syncs to a secure mobile app. This allows families to see regular updates on a beloved senior’s activities and well-being at any time, from anywhere in the world. And because we know that senior care needs can change quickly, BeClose will also identify marked changes in a senior’s routine or behavior that may signal a need for additional assistance.
If a senior in your life is determined to remain living at home but you and your family have concerns for his or her safety, BeClose may be the ideal solution to keep everyone satisfied. To learn more, please Click Here for a Free Consultation with a Member of the Amada Team.
Veterans Assistance Programs
At Amada Senior Care Omaha, it is our goal to dramatically reduce or even eliminate each family’s senior care costs. We do this by helping them take advantage of resources such as government programs and other forms of financial aid, which are especially plentiful for veterans. Many of the veterans we work with are not aware of benefits such as the VA Aid and Attendance program, which provides monthly assistance to wartime veterans and surviving spouses to pay for help with activities of daily living. To learn more about this and other senior care benefits specifically for veterans, please Click here for a Free Veteran’s Care Needs Consultation.
