Can seniors who need assistance come with a caregiver?

Yes. A caregiver may accompany a member of the Senior Resource Center to the center as long as the person can meet the membership requirements with assistance. The caregiver must register with the center and provide written verification of their position as the member’s caregiver from either the member, member’s family, physician or, if applicable, from the Administrator of the senior living facility where the member resides. Please note: If a member receives or requires the assistance of a Caregiver for help with daily living activities, that member must have a caregiver present with them at all times when attending the center. Please direct any other questions regarding caregivers to a staff member.
