Amada Senior Care Southern Utah
Ty and Craig Tippets, owners of Amada Senior Care Southern Utah, are proud to have earned a reputation for providing compassionate care to their Washington County friends and neighbors in St. George, Washington, Santa Clara, La Verkin, Hurricane and Ivins; and Cedar City, Enoch and Parowan in Iron County.
For the team here at Amada Southern Utah, senior care is more of a calling than a job. We have shared personal and professional experiences as both providers of care and as the loved ones of care recipients, and we have seen the massive difference quality senior care can make for our clients and their families. Additionally, many of us look with gratitude to our own beloved elders, who taught us some of life’s most important lessons—and we know that our clients hold similar places in their own loved ones’ hearts. We are dedicated to caring for our clients with the same level of attention and love we would demand for our own family members.
According to Craig, “For the past six years, I worked in an assisted living facility, and I grew very close to several of the residents there. Many of them called me “grandson,” which meant a lot to me because I was so close with my own grandmother. My grandma lived with us for 20 years, and we were the best of friends. We went out to eat together. We traveled together. Because of those experiences I had with my grandma and my friends at the assisted living home, I’m really excited to work with senior citizens and help you and your loved ones get through those difficult years.”
One of the primary services we provide at Amada Southern Utah is non-medical in-home care. We come into clients’ homes and help them with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, bathing, medication reminders, and even transportation—whatever we can do to help them maintain their independence. In addition to helping with ADLs, each Amada caregiver shares the goal of forging a bond with our clients so that we can enrich their lives and serve them in the most meaningful ways. We believe this “personal touch,” whether it is taking Uncle Jim out for a drive to look at the fall foliage or taking Grandma out for coffee with her friends, is what makes each day special for our clients.
In addition to providing compassionate in-home care, we at Amada Southern Utah can also help you and your family find the perfect assisted living environment for your loved one, figure out the best ways for senior care, and navigate other aspects of senior care. We realize that this can be a stressful and emotional time for all members of your family, and we encourage you to count on us for the support and guidance you need.
Because when you put your trust in Amada, your family becomes part of the Amada family—and we’ll always care for you and your loved ones accordingly.

My husband suffered a catastrophic traumatic brain injury which left him disabled. Unfortunately, we had the opportunity to work with a number of care companies in St George who weren't able to meet my husband's needs. However, when we met with the owners of Amada Senior Care to discuss our needs, we knew had found the BEST care giving company in Southern Utah. All personal care assistants were well trained in assisting with ADLs as well as light housekeeping. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs assistance with their loved ones.
the care giver we had was perfect for our family and was always willing to help and support us and work the hours we needed her the most.
I have been very impressed by the people at Amada. They are great people and were very easy to work with. I highly recommend them.
Senior Housing Advising
Many of the families we work with originally joined the Amada family when they were seeking in-home care for themselves or for a loved one. While many seniors view living at home as the ideal option for them, we realize that this is not always in their best interests and that senior care needs can quickly change. Sometimes, a senior’s life can be made safer, more comfortable, and more enjoyable by moving into a senior housing community. Whether you are a long-time Amada client or are just entering the world of senior care, we can help you locate and transition to the best assisted living or care community for your unique needs.
At Amada Southern Utah, our senior housing advisers will encourage you and your family to focus on three main categories as you investigate the options available to you. These are a senior’s physical well-being, emotional fulfillment, and your family’s finances.
When it comes to a senior’s physical well-being, it’s important to honestly assess his or her care needs as this will dictate the type of housing we focus on. For example, if a senior needs frequent help with activities of daily living or must have access to complex medical services, a skilled nursing or nursing home may be most appropriate for them. For seniors who only need help occasionally and are able to live more active lifestyles, we’ll likely recommend an independent living or assisted living community.
A senior’s emotional fulfillment is also a very influential factor when we help families look into senior housing. For our clients who have not had previous experience with senior living options in the St. George area, or have had no senior living experience at all, it can be difficult to tell at first glance which place will be most enjoyable to their loved one. Fortunately, we have been working with all of the most popular senior communities in South Utah for years. We’ll can help you and your family find the spot that will be the best fit for your senior’s preferred location, activities and hobbies, social style and lifestyle, and other unique attributes.
So many of the families we have worked with feel they need to prioritize their financial abilities over other factors when they investigate senior housing options. Of course, we understand their concerns. However, we also realize that most families aren’t aware of many of the avenues to help them pay for senior care. We can help you take advantage of resources like long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, life insurance, and more so that you can feel confident in your ability to afford the care your loved one deserves.
At Amada Southern Utah, we specialize in guiding seniors and their families to the right senior housing option for them. We can refer you to:
- 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
At Amada Southern Utah, it is our mission to find the ideal senior care option for every family we work with. One situation that it was difficult to find the right remedy for in the past was when a senior was determined to maintain his or her independence, but loved ones felt they weren’t safe living alone at home anymore. We realized that such clients needed a unique solution, so we created it: our BeClose home monitoring system.
BeClose allows families to remotely care for aging loved ones from anywhere in the world. This is a fully-customizable system each family builds from the components that meet their needs. Each device in the BeClose line is designed to be unobtrusive yet highly effective, and they all sync to a mobile app that family members can check at any time. Through the BeClose app, you can see whether your father has taken his morning pills, make sure the door to Aunt Ruth’s house is always locked, and even feel confident that grandma will receive immediate help if her button-free alarm detects a fall, fire, or other emergency. BeClose can also notify families of their loved one exhibits signs that more care may be necessary, such as changes in routine or behavioral patterns.
With BeClose, seniors are able to extend the time they live independently in their homes because their families are assured of their safety and well-being at all times. If you think this may be the right senior care option for your family, contact Amada for a free BeClose consultation.
Veterans Assistance Programs
At Amada Senior Care Southern Utah, we have made it our business to make sure each senior we come into contact with takes advantage of all resources available to help them pay for care. When a client is a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, one of the first things we discuss with them is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance provides substantial monthly support for wartime veterans and surviving spouses who must pay for help with activities of daily living. For more information on this and other benefits for veterans, please Click here for a Free Veteran’s Care Needs Consultation.
Are You Eligible for Aid and Attendance?
- To be considered a wartime veteran, a person must have served at least one day of active duty during a period of war, and a total of 90 days’ active duty overall.
- Veterans with dishonorable discharge do not qualify for this program.
- Aid and Attendance is specifically for individuals who must depend on another person to complete activities of daily living.
- Common ADLs include bathing, mobility, transportation, meal preparation, and more.
- The majority of an applicant’s income must currently be spent on care expenses.
- The amount of benefits, up to a set maximum, correlates to the percentage of income spent on care.
- The VA will determine an acceptable limit for applicants’ assets.
- Factors considered in this determination include age and financial need.
So many veterans and spouses aren’t aware of VA Aid and Attendance benefits, which can make a significant difference in their senior care budgets. These benefits are:
- Tax free.
- Paid directly to claimants every month by the United States Treasury.
- Paid in addition to military pensions and certain other benefits.
