Jennifer Novy, owner of Amada Senior Care North Shore, has dedicated her professional and personal life to caring for seniors. As a life-long Chicagoan, she now uses her senior care experience to help neighbors in Lake Forest, Libertyville, Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Glen View, Wilmette, Evanston, and surrounding communities live independently and maintain a high quality of life.
Jenny says, “I have a masters in gerontology as well as a masters in therapeutic recreation, and I’ve been working with seniors across Illinois for the past 20 years. I feel very fortunate that older adults have always been a part of my life: I even knew my great-grandparents and my great-aunts. Most importantly, both of my grandparents on my mother’s side and on my father’s side played a huge role in my life. In fact, my grandma and grandpa lived just down the street—literally, six doors down from me—and I was fortunate to help care for them when they were coming to the ends of their lives.”
“More recently, we lost my father-in-law and my mother-in-law, both to cancer. They were so young, and we were not ready. But we were able to bring hospice caregivers into their home, and they made such a difference in the care both Mom and Dad received. They worked with us to provide comfort, and they made Mom and Dad’s lives better. They made our lives better, too.”
Now, Jenny and her team at Amada North Shore wish to provide the same level of compassion and care for other seniors and their families. As Jenny says, “I really have a passion for working with seniors, and I really want to make a difference in your life—for you and your loved ones.”
Our home-care aides do so much more than assist seniors with activities of daily living. They help seniors maintain their independence and continue doing what they’ve done their whole lives. And if home is no longer the best option for a senior, Jenny and our team will help families find the perfect place to meet all of their loved one’s needs.
At Amada North Shore, senior care has always been a family endeavor and we can’t help but treat each client and his or her loved ones like one of our own. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and let our family take care of yours.
