Amada Senior Care San Fernando Valley
As the owner of Amada Senior Care San Fernando Valley, Rick Hagins has seen firsthand the difference that compassionate, top-quality care makes in the lives of his clients and their families. Throughout his years serving seniors throughout the San Fernando Valley, including Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Chatsworth, Northridge, Sherman Oaks, Granada Hills, Encino, Van Nuys, the Hollywood Hills, and dozens of surrounding communities, Rick has held firmly to his conviction that every senior deserves to live with dignity.
Says Rick, “Having grown up in the San Fernando Valley, I have a heart for its residents. I’m grateful that my experience in senior care allows me to provide guidance, support and resources to valley families who are facing the difficulties of deciding what to do when a loved one is dealing with health-related issues.”
Rick and his wife Michelle and each member of the Amada Senior Care team in San Fernando Valley are dedicated to going beyond basic home-care by gaining a deep understanding of clients and their individual needs so that they can make a truly positive impact on their lives. Amada’s San Fernando Valley team also understands the range of emotions seniors and their families experience as they consider in-home care. The number one goal is to guide families through this delicate transition in a way that helps each member feel supported and confident in their decision to place their trust in us.

Senior Housing Advising
At Amada San Fernando Valley, 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 Porter Ranch, Sylmar, North Hollywood, Pacoima, Chatsworth, Encino, Sun Valley, Newhall, Agoura Hills, and other neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley, along with West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Bel Air, Westwood and nearby cities. 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 basic 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, 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.
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 San Fernando Valley area have served our nation as veterans or as the spouses of veterans, and 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.

Through VA Aid and Attendance benefits, seniors have increased financial flexibility regarding their care plans and potential assisted living placement. Aid and Attendance is:
