Linda KadanFounder & CEO
“I started this business with a desire to care for families as if they were my own. Thirty years later, I’m incredibly proud to have my family at my side, personally and professionally, as we continue to build a company dedicated to quality in-home care.” – Linda Kadan

As CEO of Kadan Homecare, Linda Kadan’s official role is to develop and implement Kadan’s overall operating strategy and to manage the operations and resources. Unofficially, Kadan considers it her job and her life’s work to help as many seniors as possible live with dignity and independence while giving their families complete peace of mind.

According to Kadan, the highlights of her 25+ year career in the industry have been “successfully doing something I truly love for so many years and meeting so many wonderful clients and caregivers.” When Kadan graduated from Indiana University with a Master of Economics degree, she might not have imagined ending up as the CEO of a leading homecare provider. However, it’s obvious she has found her calling.

The NPDA is the recognized resource for information and definition of private duty home care practice. It leads the industry that cares for people at home through education and advocacy.
