FRANKLIN – Being a new parent is hard work. Being a new parent while struggling with and/or being affected by a family member’s substance use disorder, mental health issues, financial struggles and/or other stressors, is even harder. Barbara Normandin, Executive Director of the Franklin VNA & Hospice lays her finger on the problem, “Many parents who are also in recovery struggle with the double difficulty of having grown up in a less than supportive environment, so when they have their own children they are left wondering what being a good parent is. How do I parent with no good role models, and when I’m still struggling to keep myself on the right track?”
The Franklin VNA & Hospice is an independent, non-profit organization established to serve the Home Health care and Hospice needs of the community, including Andover, Belmont, Boscawen, Canterbury, Franklin, Hill, Northfield, Sanbornton, Salisbury, Tilton, Webster and surrounding towns.
