Tom Dean


As owner, in running a private pay Home Healthcare agency, there can be many challenges day to day. Tom got his CNA license before the company started providing personal care, because in private pay home health care, when you need service generally you need it "Now". Having his CNA allowed Tom the qualifications to fill in briefly if needed in a case. 

 Tom admits there can be many challenges day to day, but he likes what he does and says, "I wouldn't trade problems with anyone." Tom is from Alabama, he is a fan of the University of Alabama, and has a picture of Coach Nick Saban in the lobby. He likes computers and is interested in technology.

Kim Dean
