James Bernoski and Laural Strong, owners of Amada Senior Care Lexington, know firsthand what a difference quality care can make. Both experienced registered nurses in critical care settings, including the emergency room, James and Laural have personally witnessed many of the gaps in the senior care continuum. One of the most concerning care gaps occurs when a senior patient leaves a facility and returns home. “Family members don’t know who to contact,” says James, “Mom and dad may still need help but there aren’t many resources available to help them.”

This scenario was far too common in their nursing experience; James and Laural knew they needed to do something to help close the gap. That something turned out to be the purchase of an Amada Senior Care franchise.“Laural and I wanted to make a difference in the care gap,” says James, “At Amada Senior Care of Lexington, we are not only able to provide the highest quality of care to seniors, but we are also able to give their families the peace of mind they deserve.”

As nurses, and additionally for Laural as an Air Force veteran with 12 years of service, the franchise business partners understand the struggles faced by many modern-family caregivers, especially those referred to as the sandwich generation.“Caregiving can be stressful, time-consuming, and emotionally exhausting. It can be difficult for families to juggle work, children, and other obligations and still find time to properly care for an aging parent or loved one,” says Laural, “Home care provides a means for family caregivers to reduce the burden so they can focus more on being a son, daughter, or friend.”

For Amada Lexington, their home care business is more than just another home care company – it’s a chance to give back to their senior community, including military veterans and their families. “It’s important to give back to the seniors that took care of us when we were growing up,” says Laural. The Amada Lexington team is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of their clients and they are prepared to go the extra mile for them.

James ends, “At the end of the day, Amada Lexington is on a mission to provide high-quality, individualized and compassionate care to the Lexington community through respect, integrity, and excellence with every client they serve.”
