I am a native of Elk Point, South Dakota, living most of my life in the Midwest. I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of South Dakota. With that degree I pursued a career in long term care management, which has led me to founding a long term care management company, Caring Professionals.
Caring Professionals is a family business specializing in quality long term care services. Chad is a licensed nursing home administrator and preceptor. Graduating from the University of South Dakota with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Administration, Chad brings over 22 years of experience in long term care to Caring Professionals.
