Linda’s commitment to home care is personal. “I have parents in their 80s who have protested for years that they will never go into a nursing home.” However, she believed home care could offer a better array of services and provide more innovative solutions.

Besides Co-Chairman, Sandy serves as CareFinders’ Chief Compliance Officer & General Counsel.
