“I just wanted to share this info with your readers,” resident Fay Vahdani, co-owner of Luxe Homecare, said in an email to Circling the News. “My staff checks all the Covid-19 vaccine locations on a daily basis and as soon as one releases some appointments, we book our clients for vaccination and drive them to get the vaccine. I know that we have a lot of elderlies in Palisades that have no form of transportation. We can help.”
For seven years, Vahdani, a Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club member, had helped organized the club’s birthday luncheon for the town’s 90-year-olds, a tradition that began in 1996. CTN’s editor has watched Vahdani interact with the elderly, and it’s a joy to see her compassion, empathy and respect.
Vahdani started Luxe Homecare in 2011 with her husband, Ben Adel. Initially, the business focused strictly on home care until 2014, when home health care was added.
The business is licensed by the Department of Public Health and is highly regulated. It took Luxe three years to received the coveted Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval, which means the company passed rigorous testing and government standards. The Gold Seal protects consumers and businesses alike. LUXE is also certified by Medicare and the California Association for Health Services at Home.
Vahdani and Adel have received generous praise from residents over the years. One wrote: “I want to express our thanks and deep appreciation to the entire Luxe Homecare team for taking care of my mom. My goal was to have her in her house rather than a facility and be as comfortable as possible in face of her difficult situation. Thank you, Fay, for everything.”
Another wrote: “After I was told that I would need 24/7 care at home, I contacted Fay Vahdani, who promptly interviewed me about my personal interests, likes and dislikes, and almost immediately matched me with a capable and congenial caregiver.”
In addition to homecare services, such as help with daily living, meal preparation, light housekeeping, driving and escorting to appointments, bathing and hygiene services, Luxe also provides senior transportation that includes ambulatory and wheelchair.
“We realize that family crises don’t follow a 9 to 5 schedule, and neither do we,” the Luxe website states. “We respond to your call for help immediately, whether you contact us after business hours, during a weekend or on a holiday. Our caregivers are available on a part-time, full-time, overnight, 24-hour basis or for long-term care situations.”
Adel, whose background is in engineering and management, earned his MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management in 2006. He learned about the healthcare industry through his Bruin classmates. He’s also active in the town’s Optimist Club.
“We manage the whole spectrum of senior care,” Adel said, noting that “Luxe deals with insurance companies so the client doesn’t have to.”
Vahdani was a stay-at-home mom with their daughter, Bita, for a decade when she decided it was time to get back to work. A certified nurse assistant, she “fell in love” with healthcare, and finds the work “very rewarding.”
“We love what we do,” Vahdani said.
