Tom Najjar is the Founder and President of CarePlus Home Health.
Tom graduated from Florida State University with a business degree in Hospitality Administration and spent several years working in hotels and managing various restaurants in the D.C. metro area. Using his hospitality experience, he embarked on a new career working in the eldercare community. Tom saw the need for reasonably priced, quality service that adds a touch of personalized care to each of his client’s unique needs. As a result, he launched CarePlus Home Health in 1995. Tom had the opportunity to personally utilize his agency’s caregivers when his own father needed care in his last months of life, before succumbing to cancer. Tom brings to CarePlus a higher standard of customer service.
Heather Najjar, RN, BSN is the Director of Nursing for CarePlus Home Health.

She graduated from Jacksonville State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 1992 and has been caring for the neonate to geriatric population ever since. Heather is a native to suburban Maryland, is married, and most enjoys family life with her husband, Tom, and their six children. She has the dedication and warmth that’s rarely found, yet so needed, in this field.
