Gary Shepherd’s “Buy Black” highlight of the week– Compassionate Provider Care Agency

February 21, 2018 Category: Local Posted by:

Charlie Brown, President of Compassionate Provider Care Agency and I initially met at an “ibuyblack” networking night at the Platinum Grille in Philadelphia. 

I visited his offices recently to find out more about his business.  He told me that he got the calling to start the business while taking care of his mother. 

Brown stated that he noticed how sometimes workers in his industry become jaded and insensitive to clients and families to whom they are providing care.  In part, his company’s mission is “to provide high quality Non-Medical In-Home care to seniors and those in need.” And they accept Medicaid. 

With a staff of about 20 and growing, CPCA provides service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  His brochure further states… “We believe in doing more, working harder, treating you with compassion, dignity, kindness and respect.”  Their offices are  located in Center City Philadelphia. 

If you or someone you know needs assistance for a loved one, CPCA can be reached at 215.791.9103.

When you call, tell him you read about them in the Philadelphia Sunday Sun.  Subscribe to the Philadelphia Sunday Sun today.
