How We Help You Find the Best Community for Your Senior

How We Help Tabs - CarePatrol - panel1

It all begins with a simple phone call. Why is this call so important?

Choosing a safer senior housing option, unfortunately, cannot be made by appearance alone. What is most important is something that really can’t be seen. It is "Can this community really care for your senior?" That's why CarePatrol's advisors complete a "Care Discovery" and base our recommendations on care options that can specifically meet your individual needs and preferences.

Guided Tour of Communities

We believe in private & personalized tours. We literally walk you through the steps. You will never get a list from us and be told to “go visit them alone, or on your own.” After we’ve matched your individualized needs to safer care options in your area, we will accompany you on a tour of each one of them. Or, we will provide a virtual tour if that works better for you. You are never alone because we will be your personal care guide from start to finish.

Full Care Details & Transparent Pricing

We insist on transparency with pricing & services. We don’t like surprises either. How to pay for care is always a concern and a valid question of our clients. Another important question relates to what services are provided in a specific care option. We can help alleviate these concerns. We will inform you of private, Veterans, or other government programs that you may be eligible for.

Moving Day & Transition Support

We work with the community so you can focus on your loved one. Change can be hard, especially for Seniors. We make sure everything is in order so on moving day, everybody’s attention can be on making the transition as smooth as possible. Ensuring your questions are answered and you continue to feel good about your decision is as important as getting your senior settled in to a new environment.

Continuing Care Support

CarePatrol delivers satisfaction to families every day. Your advisor will be there for you when you need them - even after you make your decision. Long after move-in day, we'll still be there with regular check-ins to ensure your loved one's needs are being met.

Ken Knudsen, CSA

Owner for Midlands, Upstate, Pee Dee
Owner Placeholder

"Families can trust our team because we treat every family as if they were our own."

Ken and his wife, Cynthia, launched CarePatrol SC in 2012. 
Prior to entering the world of senior living, Ken had an executive level career in manufacturing, including 25 years of starting new companies. Certainly not the typical background one would associate with senior placement services, but personal experiences changed the course for him.
He found himself in the same position as many of the families we serve. His mother needed to find a senior living community within days, and they didn’t know where to start. He discovered that it’s a system not easily navigated without advice and direction from professionals; and the short time frame they had, didn’t allow much room for figuring it out on their own. The family was frustrated and overwhelmed, and he decided to find a better way for families in South Carolina to walk through this. 
Ken then became a Certified Senior Advisor and learned the landscape of senior living and care in SC before speaking to his first CarePatrol client. His business background is a great asset to families who need assistance with financial questions, budgeting, and comprehending long-term care policies.  Remembering the helplessness his family felt fuels his desire to serve families in similar situations. 
Ken and Cynthia have two grown children and are active in various ministry and civic organizations in the state. They have assembled a team of professionals throughout South Carolina who are compassionate, knowledgeable, and proud to help families with one of life’s most difficult and harrowing transitions
