Why is Cerna Homecare different than the competition?

Cerna is unlike most home care agencies that focus on Activities of Daily Living (ADL) support and general assistance. In addition to ADL, Cerna practices a range of progressive techniques and stimulation helping people thrive – particularly those with cognitive impairments from neurodegenerative disorders. These processes and techniques can be duplicated and are trainable.
Cerna Homecare’s multiple levels of care extend beyond what typical senior care providers do on a day-to-day basis.

How long is the franchising process from start to finish?
