Amada Senior Care Tucson
Dr. Chris and Christina Ram, owners of Amada Senior Care Tucson, have been advocates of health and wellness for as long as they can remember. Their eyes were opened wide to the very real need for compassionate, responsible senior care within their Tucson community after Christina’s mother fell severely ill to a urinary tract infection (UTI) that went septic. Christina remembers getting the call from her aunt informing her that her mother had been found after spending 12 hours on the floor of her bedroom, burning up with fever and unable to get to her feet. Once she was admitted to the ER, the doctors where having a very difficult time chasing the infection and informed Christina’s family of the delicate situation their mother was facing.
“I remember walking in to see my mother who didn’t recognize me initially,” says Christina. “Once she realized who I was, we both started crying and she proceeded to tell me about her no resuscitation wishes. I was praying that my mother would pull through. When she finally did, the doctor was ready to discharge right away and we found ourselves scrambling to find her a caregiver because she could not be left alone and she was still extremely weak.”
Adds Christina, “It was a stressful whirlwind of activity trying to prepare for my mom’s return home—home modifications, purchasing of equipment, and, most importantly, a caregiver we could trust to keep her safe, well nourished and comfortable. We finally found Jonathan and he was perfect! Jonathan was attentive to my mom’s needs, respected her space and privacy while keeping her safety a top priority. He cooked for her and kept her house tidy, drove her to get her medications and talked long hours with her in shared conversation about their common interests. My mom adored Jonathan, and it was her positive experience that convinced me that we need more caregivers like Jonathan in Tucson.”
With the large population of elderly individuals in Tucson, Chris and Christina agree that well-vetted, compassionate and committed caregivers are a necessity. Chris and Christina are proud to own Amada Senior Care Tucson and are committed to improving the quality of lives of seniors residing in Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana, Catalina, Catalina Foothills, Saddlebrooke, Green Valley, Sahuarita, Sierra Vista and surrounding communities.
Dr. Chris Ram has helped thousands of patients (many of them seniors) with chiropractic care in Tucson and Southern California for more than 20 years. Christina has been by his side on the chiropractic end, while both have professionally advised people on nutrition, physical fitness and lifestyle choices to create optimum health and longevity. They have made it a goal that Amada Senior Care Tucson caregivers exceed clients’ expectations. Daily tasks such as cleaning, preparing meals and attending personal care needs add up to small essentials of what we do. Their true benchmark for providing superior care are the myriad things done to enrich each client’s life by creating positive experiences whenever possible.

Senior Housing Advising
When seniors or their loved ones begin to feel that they require more support than in-home care and assistance with basic ADLs, it may be time to consider transitioning to an assisted living community.
This is an emotional decision for everyone involved, and our goal at Amada Tucson is to guide families through the placement process with wisdom, empathy, and competence.
For some seniors, an assisted living community, typically offering non-complex medical services, may be a good fit. Others may require a bit more support and may be better served in a nursing home or different type of care community.
The team at Amada Senior Care Tucson has years of experience with senior care in University Place, Puyallup, and other nearby communities. As a result, we have deep knowledge of all local care communities and can make sure our clients find the ideal placement to suit their care needs, locations, lifestyles, and budgets.
We also rely on our extensive experience to help our clients make full use of all benefits available to them, including veterans’ benefits and long-term care insurance benefits. The costs of assisted living may intimidate many families, but we can help them make financial decisions with confidence. To further ease cost concerns, the Amada Tucson team is pleased to offer our placement services free of charge.
When in-home care is no longer ideal for our clients, we are honored to guide them through this next phase. Our specialty is referring seniors to the right community or placement for them, 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
Home Care Technology
Many families who find themselves at odds with a senior loved one’s desire to remain as independent as possible don’t realize that there can be a middle-ground between constant supervision and simply hoping for the best. However, at Amada Senior Care Tucson, we have developed a system called BeClose which makes use of the latest technology to help seniors maintain independence while reassuring their loved ones of their safety. The BeClose system is fully customizable and allows families to keep an eye on seniors through strategically-placed and non-intrusive monitors which then report to their emails or mobile devices. This way, seniors can go about their lives in peace and their families will be notified of any routine changes that may signal a need for extra support.
