Tom Najjar, Founder & President
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 elder care 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.

Experienced & Inspired
Twenty years ago, Tom Najjar, President and founder of CarePlus was inspired to create a company that provides personalized and quality care at a reasonable price.
