I had the pleasure of interviewing Tafa Jefferson CEO of Amada Senior Care. Tafa gave insight into his remarkable story and how he came to create an opportunity for an alternative potential Millionaire Business model. In 1997, he joined the NFL as an offensive tackle for the Chicago Bears. A career-ending injury forced Tafa to go in a different direction. Tafa joined forces with his college football teammate Chad Fotheringham and together their vision for Senior Health care was born Amada Home Care.

“ Amada Senior Care is committed to enriching lives by providing nurturing, compassionate senior home care and by guiding families through the many senior housing options available for assisted living. Healthcare professionals and families look to Amada to help them navigate the complexities of the senior care system. “

Tafa's mother, a caregiver herself, inspired Tafa after his memories and experience as a child. As early as 8 years old, Tafa witnessed first hand the joy and satisfaction she gained from looking after seniors, despite the hard work required.

Tafa recalls his time with his mother as a caregiver and it wasn't until Tafa’s transition out of college he decided with his mother's advice.

Remembering his mother's first client who was 82 years old and his family cared for elderly lady who he fondly refers to as being like a grandmother. He remembers the sense of his mother’s client for over 10 years becoming part of the family and how he enjoyed caring for her.
