An Apex native, Cothran joined this local Always Best Care team as an employee in 2021 and is proud to now be leading and growing a team of caregivers that provide non-medical in-home care and senior living referral services to his hometown community.

“Sean comes from a great background of hospitality and senior care leadership positions, and he is a great fit for what we look for in a franchisee,” said Jake Brown, President and CEO of Always Best Care. “The growing senior population and their families in Wake Forest-North Raleigh are in experienced and compassionate hands, as Shawn pursues his business ownership with Always Best Care.”
