Jackson, Mississippi (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Due to the aging of the baby boomer generation, the senior population is exploding – a phenomenon that has, in recent years, increased the need for quality senior care services throughout the United States. Amada Senior Care, a growing franchise out of Orange County, California, has built a nationally recognized business meeting that need. Amada is proud to announce the addition of their most recent franchise partner, John Merrell, in Jackson, Mississippi. John is the first to take the Amada brand to the eastern United States, and is excited about beginning a business venture that he feels is both meaningful and rewarding. John and his wife Nan live in Jackson and have two children - Bentley and Miles.
Having formerly worked as a supply and distribution representative for Cardinal Health, John decided to make the shift to senior care largely because of his experiences caring for his own family members as they aged. “I’ve cared for a loved one through difficult times and I know firsthand how hard it can be,” said John. “There’s a lot of pressure and a lot of questions you have." John said that during that time, he and his family were fortunate enough to have healthcare professionals put their arms around them and help them make the right decisions. "They truly helped guide us through a tough time, and it's something I'll never forget. That's what we want to provide for people in our own community through Amada.”
Amada CEO Tafa Jefferson, a former offensive tackle for the Chicago Bears, says Amada is thrilled to be taking the business into the eastern US. “We’re very fortunate to have people like John and Nan representing our brand, and are confident they’ll uphold Amada’s reputation in this new part of the country.”
According to Tafa, Amada currently has over a dozen franchise partners throughout the nation – and expects to add more than 30 in the coming year.
John and Nan's grand opening will take place on Monday, January 15th.
Since 2007, San Clemente, California based company Amada Senior Care has enriched lives by providing compassionate non-medical in home care and by guiding families through the many senior housing options available for assisted living.
