What Do Our Franchisees Have to Say?
CarePatrol franchisees open up about what they love about their businesses.
CarePatrol franchise owners get into this business to make a real difference in the lives of seniors and their families, many of whom are in crisis and need to find the best possible care option fast. As the largest senior placement franchise, CarePatrol is the national leader in placing seniors in the assisted-living facilities that are optimally suited for them. On the local level, our franchisees are respected subject-matter experts who go above and beyond to deliver a successful experience for the seniors and families they help.
The results of our efforts are extraordinary. CarePatrol franchisees help tens of thousands of seniors find the facilities they need every year, and they deliver much-needed peace of mind to the families they serve. While the majority of CarePatrol franchisees have no experience in the senior placement industry before opening their businesses, the low costs for entry and our simple business model that emphasizes training, long-term financial growth and community engagement, make CarePatrol the ideal business for entrepreneurs with the desire to serve others and make a difference.
With over 200 locations in more than 35 states, CarePatrol franchisees love what they do, and their support for our collective mission is evident on a daily basis.
In 2017, our franchise conference was attended by 100% of our franchise network, and Franchise Business Review has awarded CarePatrol with their prestigious annual “Franchisee Satisfaction Award” seven years in a row. Most importantly, our franchisees work with our executive team to mentor each other and provide best practices. And because CarePatrol territories are protected, even franchisees in the same geographical areas routinely help each other win business.
This is what our franchisees have to say about why they love their businesses:
Personally, CarePatrol is the most unbelievably rewarding business. We are dealing with so many people’s end-of-life issues and it’s an honor to help them at this vulnerable time. The stories of seniors are some of the best stories I have ever heard, especially the centaurians .. they are such a unique generation. Sometimes I just sit there for hours just listening to them because they have a lot to impart. It’s sort of amazing to get this fulfilling career and be paid for it at the same time.Jacqui Clark, Owner of a CarePatrol in San Diego, California
I was looking for an opportunity and I learned about CarePatrol. It really hit home and resonated with me on a personal level. I thought, ‘This is refreshing.’ I can help people, educate families, advocate for the safety of seniors, advocate for consumers and help them make the best decision that fits their needs.Anthony Coleman, Owner of a CarePatrol franchise in North Central Ohio
I knew that I wanted to do something that made a difference, and I was drawn to the CarePatrol business model because it’s so straightforward. The business has been around for over 20 years, and it’s proven. The culture of CarePatrol is very family-oriented. The founders work in the business, and they ensure that we get the training that we need. They are extremely accessible. I have their cell phone numbers, and they are there whenever I need them. You couldn’t feel more supported.Julie Derry, San Diego, Owner of a CarePatrol in California
The CarePatrol business model is simple, but it’s not simple to do. When the founders started the business, the impetus was to help families through a difficult time. Having the compassion to help people is the easiest part. What we do well is listen to the families to find out what they need and then deliver a solution. The model is very straightforward and is extremely effective. CarePatrol is a very special brand because we are on the ground in the communities. We are the subject-matter experts in our local communities, which gives us a presence and the ability to win trust in our markets.Sharon Meekin, Owner of a CarePatrol in Minneapolis, Minnesota
I was a restaurant owner with elderly parents and five children, and I was getting squeezed for time. My background was in microbiology, so going into CarePatrol is giving me an opportunity to learn about the science of aging. I love everything about it: there’s much less stress, I have more time for the family, and it’s extremely personally and financially rewarding.Mike Awadalla, Owner of a CarePatrol franchise in Walton Creek, California
