Senior Center: Companion Caregiver program has openings

The Companion Caregiver program at the Franklin Senior Center currently has openings for new clients! We provide in home care for a loved one over 60 years of age who has a form of Dementia or a major medical illness.

One of our trained companions can provide care for 4 or more hours per week at a very reasonable rate. This allows a full time caregiver to do something in or out of the home that does not involve caregiving. We provide respite for the caregiver and companionship and socialization for the loved one.

Our Companions are trained in CPR and first aid, Dementia Care, Fall risk and cultural competency amongst other areas of training.
