Midlands area residents who want a job where they can truly make a difference in someone’s life every day might find what they’re looking for at Cora Care.
“Cora Care provides nonmedical in-home care for seniors or anyone who needs just a little extra help at home,” says owner Melissa Sprouse Browne. “We provide assistance with activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, and grooming, transferring — say someone has trouble getting in and out of a chair or in and out of bed, we can help with that.”
Other services include meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, errands, and help with shopping and transportation to appointments.
“We’re able to help seniors stay in their homes and even assist when families need help at senior living facilities or sitting with a loved one in the hospital,” Browne adds.
Browne named the business after her aunt, Cora Sprouse. “She was a wonderful woman, and I was so blessed to have her in my life, so I wanted to honor her with our name.”
Cora Care also offers senior living placement services to help families with the complex tasks of assessing, searching and selecting the best possible senior housing solution for a loved one, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing.
Browne says she’s looking for people who have a heart for seniors and want to make a difference for folks. “I need someone who can be available to help with those activities of daily living. If you have a certified nursing assistant license or if you’re a med tech or medical assistant, or simply someone who’s retired from a previous career or would like to have some part-time hours to supplement your additional job, then this would be the place for you. You would be helping in their homes on a daily basis.”
Cora Care serves Richland and Lexington counties primarily, and work can be part-time or full-time depending on the hours the individual needs or requires.
