David Larsen has been CFO since the inception of the agency. He is proud to be part of a family business that is locally owned and operated. "I enjoy helping the elderly community," he says, "providing them with an opportunity to remain independent and in the home as long as possible."
David's primary responsibilities with Freedom Home Health are fiscal oversight and human resources. He also takes pride in keeping the agency current with the ever-changing Medicare regulations and standards.

David has a special fondness for dogs, and has worked with show dogs as well as loveable "mutts" since childhood. Naturally, David has had a big hand in creating and maintaining Freedom's pet therapy program, which enhances patient health and well-being through interaction with a trained therapy animal.
