What makes CarePatrol the leading home placement franchise?

When the family member of an older adult calls a CarePatrol franchisee, they are often in crisis. Their loved one needs an immediate placement in a facility that can treat a specialized need. While some companies simply respond with a long list of facilities for the often anxious and stressed client to research, we do the exact opposite.

Our franchisees guide their clients through the daunting task of finding a quality and safe assisted living, independent living, or memory care facility for their loved one. Our proprietary system helps determine exactly which care options will be the right fit for our clients, using the most advanced software and technology in the senior placement franchise industry.

To help our clients make a truly informed decision about where to place their loved ones, our franchise owners take a hands-on approach. They tour assisted living facilities with the families, they provide families with in-depth research and performance reviews of care options, and they provide comfort, support and expertise throughout the whole process.


We hear countless stories of how our franchisees are impacting the lives of families across the nation on a regular basis,” says Becky Bongiovanni, president of CarePatrol. “They live and breathe this work, and we’re enormously proud that we can provide a profitable business model that truly makes a real, lasting difference in the lives of so many.
