Legacy Home Care isn’t just for older adults with aging needs

How to get the right kind of care at home

Legacy Home Care isn’t just for older adults with aging needs


With an upcoming surgery scheduled, Howard Goldmacher and his wife, Iris, realized they were going to need some extra day-to-day help. So they called Legacy Home Care and arranged for a caregiver to come a couple of times a week, four hours at a time. They were matched with Okay Onuorah, who helped with household chores and driving to doctor appointments. Okay started with the Goldmachers several weeks before the surgery so everyone could get used to the arrangement. But when Howard had to have an unexpected operation before his planned surgery, Okay’s care became even more vital. He upped his hours and started to care for the Goldmachers four times a week. The couple couldn’t be more grateful and even joke that they want to adopt him. “Okay has been a lifesaver,” said Howard. “I don’t know what I would do without him.”

Legacy Home Care isn’t just for older adult with aging needs. Legacy can be used temporarily or long term for many reasons.
