Privately owned home care organization Legacy Homecare LA has launched in Southern California. Specializing in care for older adults with Alzheimer’s, dementia, ALS, Parkinson’s, heart disease, and other complex conditions, Legacy Homecare LA provides compassionate care backed by specialized training.
“We strive to create the best day, every day, for our clients, employees, and their families,” said Founder and CEO Jason J. Kidushim, “by changing the way the world ages in place.”
Kidushim created Legacy Homecare LA with one goal: to help clients and their loved ones live with ease. Drawing from 30 years of combined industry experience, company leadership crafted a client-centered approach characterized by comprehensive care planning, weekly supervisory visits, family communication, physician coordination, the organization of referrals, assistance with medical devices and equipment, and ongoing ad hoc interventions. The result is a boutique agency offering high-touch, high-quality care that empowers clients to age comfortably in their own homes.
Home Care Made Personal
Kidushim understands the importance of quality home care thanks to his personal experience. His grandfather, a Purple Heart and Silver Star recipient, required care for Alzheimer’s at the age of 82. As his disease progressed, Joseph I. Kidushim began requiring round-the-clock support.
“I saw what this life-altering, progressive disease does to a person… My grandfather’s legacy changed the course of my life. He inspired me to dedicate the past decade of my life to helping thousands of other families navigate what we went through. I am so excited to bring everything I have learned, both professionally and personally, back home to Southern California.”
In addition to Kidushim, Legacy Homecare LA is helmed by Zehra Dhanani, RN, MSN, the company’s Director of Client Care Services. Shortly after completing her education in the field of nursing, Dhanani joined Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she specialized in medical-surgical, orthopedic, and pediatric nursing. Her years of hospital experience, combined with years spent caring for relatives with various conditions, sparked a desire to work with the elderly.
Dhanani is a member of the American Nurses Association and has received training and certification from the Alzheimer’s Association. She is also a Certified Dementia Practitioner, a certification provided through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners. This expertise equips her to provide clinical support to clients, families, and care companions.
