Nancy Rathbone, executive director of the Franklin House (R) discussed the senior living services provided by the Franklin House, at the Franklin Kiwanis meeting Tuesday, Jan. 20.
Since Nov. 10, the Franklin House has provided three kinds of residential services: 1. Independent Living, 2. Assisted Living, and 3.
Memory Care (which is for residents with dementia or Alzheimer's disease). Franklin House provides a residence that is more like home. Families can come in and have meals with the residents.
“Good food, children, and pets are high on our list,” said Rathbone. “The residents can have private, semi-private, or mega suites,” said Rathbone.
Respite care is also available. The resident to staff ratio is eight to one.
Franklin House is the largest supplier of assisted living beds in North Carolina. With Rathbone is Beverly Barnette, president of Franklin Kiwanis.
