Companion Caregiver Program available

Have you considered the companion caregiver program currently offered by the Franklin Senior Center?
The grant funded program is designed to provide full time caregivers who are 60 years of age and older, some respite care from one of our trained companions. It is designed for the caregiver caring for someone with a major medical illness or dementia. We can offer 2-4 hours per week for each family.

While currently focused on caregivers over 60, there is hope that with continued success of the program, and additional grant funding, it may be expanded to include those caregivers under 60 who are also providing care for their senior parents and relatives.

The program flyer is shown here. You can download and print your own copy.
