At Amada we understand that caring for relatives can be rewarding but also stressful, time consuming, and emotionally exhausting. It is difficult for families to juggle work, children, and other obligations, and still find time to properly care for an aging parent or loved one. Amada takes care of the nursing, so you can focus on just being a son, daughter, or friend again.
Amada Home Health’s staff of nurses are committed to enriching lives by providing nurturing, compassionate home health nursing care, and by guiding families through the many transitions and hurdles that medical needs present. Healthcare professionals and families look to Amada to help them navigate the complexities of the medical care system.
Amada was originally founded in 2007 by college friends Tafa Jefferson and Chad Fotheringham, who met while studying business and playing football together at University of the Pacific. In 2008 they were founding members of the American Board of Home Care, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the community and establishing standards in home care. Both Tafa and Chad stand an imposing six feet and six inches tall and are known by many in the home care industry as the “big guys with the big hearts.”
