The Franciscan Centre is a ministry of New Cassel Retirement Center. The Centre offers daytime support services for adults with functional loss, Alzheimer's, or other aging frailties and provides a viable option for seniors who can no longer be at home alone or are isolated due to disability.
We provide two meals and a snack to our day program participants each day. Meals are a great time to socialize and exchange stories with other day program participants and staff.
Our meals and snacks are USDA approved, so that you can be assured a balanced meal is provided for your loved one while at the Centre.

The Fransciscan Centre eases the burden of caring for your loved one alone. The support and services provided at the Centre can give caregivers a much deserved break from the daily commitment of worry and responsibility, and the ability to maintain employment.
