At Amada Senior Care Northern New Jersey, we are committed to helping our clients live safer and more enjoyable lives and allowing their loved ones to feel secure in the knowledge that they are receiving the highest quality of care. As Gerri Dasappan says, “We want families not to worry, knowing that Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa are in good hands.” This dedication extends beyond in-home care as we support clients and their loved ones through all aspects of the senior care journey to address their specific physical, emotional, and financial needs with expertise and compassion.
"Dear Bonjour Home Care, On behalf of my husband, J. Davis, my Mother-In-Law, N. Davis I would like to THANK YOU for your kindness setting up care for my Mother-in-Law. My husband said you were incredibly helpful. The care we received from the caregiver Ama Daakuwa was excellent! She was so patient, kind & helpful. We SIMPLY could not have survived WITHOUT HER. I am happy to fill out any further recommendation for AMA or your company! Thanks SO much," Dr. T. D. (Union County NJ)
Our favorite experiences have come from pulling into the driveway of the pretty farmhouse or stylish city home that we’ve admired hundreds of times and knowing that we will help to care for the client who has established a life inside. These homes birthed the memories that shaped our community. We feel honored when invited inside to arrange care for a member of the household. Greater than our admiration for their beautiful homes is our appreciation for the elderly and disabled members of our community’s need for home care. It is rewarding to know that we make a difference in the lives of our clients.
Individuals enrolled in Medicaid’s Personal Preference Program (PPP) are able to self-direct their own care. This is a “Cash and Counseling” program in which the recipients are provided with a cash allowance and the flexibility to spend it as they see fit for their care requirements. Common ways funds are spent are for personal care assistance, assistive technology, and home modifications. It should be noted that a fair amount of counseling is also provided to ensure needs are being met. With this option, individuals are able to hire the care provider of their choosing, including family members.

"Overall they've been good with me. Rona in the office calls me when the caregiver has some personal errands and needs to take off. They would always ask me if I want a replacement in or not. Their invoicing if fine. They got back to me when I reached out to them a few times. There's been no real issues. We had a couple of times where my uncle was very stubborn and they've tried new people. They've been really understanding in finding the right person. It's been a very good experience with them and my uncle seems very happy."

For a long time, this escape to the shore was a tradition in our family. That is, until my wife's father had a mild heart attack a couple years back. After that, he started moving slower; needed more rest. Soon, trips to the shore were too hard on him. It was difficult for everyone to watch this decline, and all we wanted was to be able to help him. Unfortunately, he required the sort of attention that neither I nor my wife could offer; so it was time to consider options.
