Amada Senior Care Tulsa
Emily Hilliard, owner of Amada Senior Care Tulsa, is seeing the realization of a longtime dream serving as an advocate for seniors who want to live safely and independently with the support they need to maintain their health and well-being. Emily is a state-certified Home Care Administrator, a Certified Nursing Assistant, and a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
Emily is joined in the business by her husband, Joe Hilliard, and her oldest daughter, Brittany Loyd. Joe is a Certified Senior Advisor, a Certified Nursing Assistant, and a veteran of the U.S. Army, and Brittany is a Certified Nursing Assistant and holds a degree in Psychology.
“My husband and I have both watched our grandparents and other family members struggle with all of the issues of aging and the difficult landscape that they faced in this process—whether it was finding community resources, home-based care, transportation or residential care,” says Emily. “We understand the importance of having someone to turn to who will provide honest and relevant information and guidance.”
This is a true family business committed to helping our seniors and their families by providing compassionate care and genuine advocacy to help them determine the best possible solution to meet their unique needs. Amada Senior Care Tulsa is dedicated to making each senior’s life not only as safe as possible, but also as fulfilling as possible. We do this by going beyond everyday caregiver tasks like housekeeping and meal preparation to helping enrich client’s lives in the ways that are most meaningful to our beloved seniors and their families. We want to ensure that every day with Amada Senior Care Tulsa is a special day.
The goal of the Amada Tulsa team is to provide care at the highest level and personally meaningful service to seniors living in Tulsa, Bixby, Sand Springs, Claremore, Bartlesville, Shidler, Ponca City, Jennings, Oak Grove, Cleveland and Mule Barn and neighboring cities in Tulsa, Osage, Pawnee and Rogers counties.
“We are excited and humbled by the opportunity we now have to work with seniors in our home state of Oklahoma,” says Emily. “We have made a true commitment to advocate for our seniors, their families and their loved ones and help them navigate their way to the best possible solution for their individual situation.”

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. Since this is an emotional decision for everyone involved, our goal at Amada Tulsa 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 Tulsa has years of experience with senior care in the communities of Tulsa, Osage, Pawnee and Rogers and beyond. 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 Tulsa 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 Tulsa, 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.
