NFL Alumni & Amada Senior Care Sign National Agreement
Amada Senior Care Now Is A Sponsor & Exclusive Provider To NFL Alumni
NFL Alumni, the most recognizable and respected nationwide group of former NFL players, announced today that it is partnering with Amada Senior Care, an innovative senior care franchise system committed to enriching lives. Amada is now serving as a sponsor and exclusive in-home care provider for NFL Alumni. Amada also provides NFL Alumni members with other senior care services such as care coordination, senior housing guidance and advice on long-term care insurance.
“As a former NFL player, this sponsorship means the world to me,” said Tafa Jefferson, former Chicago Bears offensive tackle and CEO of Amada Senior Care. “When families are in need of resources for care, it can be a very difficult time for them. We’re so honored that our organization was selected to serve the NFL’s former players, coaches, executives and cheerleaders when they need us most.”
Amada has an established track record of delivering excellent care to former NFL players dating back to 2014. Jefferson began discussions with NFL Alumni CEO Elvis Gooden about formalizing their relationship in 2017.
“One of the main goals of the NFLA is to serve, assist, and inform players in their post-NFL lives,” said Gooden. “We want to constantly introduce and offer programs from a variety of medical, financial, educational, and social plans to help keep members and their families healthy, productive, and connected. Our new partnership with Amada Senior Care allows us to do that even more effectively.”
Jefferson founded Amada Senior Care in 2007 with long-time friend Chad Fotheringham. They began franchising in 2012 with a focus on providing quality care, choice, innovation and professionalism within the home care industry. Over the last six years, the organization has grown to over 100 locations in the United States.
“We’re extremely grateful to the NFL Alumni for their proactive approach to meeting the needs of the families they serve,” said Jefferson. “Now that our partnership is formalized, we look forward to working with them to educate families on long-term care insurance and the NFL’s 88 Plan. We also will assist their 35 regional chapters during local events and other community endeavors.”
