CarePatrol Franchise Announces Collaboration with Kindred at Home
The nation’s leading senior placement franchise’s new collaboration will help seniors who need home or hospice care
For families facing the illness of a loved one, the need to make a decision on home or hospice care often comes directly after the loved one has a medical event or requires an acute care stay.
To help families make the right decision right away, CarePatrol, the nation’s largest senior placement franchise, announced a new collaboration with the Kindred at Home, the nation’s leading provider of home health, hospice and community care services. Kindred at Home has over 45,000 employees and more than 800 locations nationwide.
“Our goal in engaging in this care collaboration is to assist in the stabilization of care for the senior in transition, provide better outcomes related to the move-in process and help with the elongation of stay overall,” says Chuck Bongiovanni, President and Founder of CarePatrol. “Kindred at Home is well prepared to provide the collaborative support and specializes in geriatric care, just like CarePatrol. Keeping our senior clients happy and healthy in the location they call home is a shared objective.
“The combination of the services of CarePatrol and Kindred at Home also will support additional choice in care locations post hospital stay,” Bongiovanni continues. “Providing seniors with every option in an effort to live their ‘Best Life Possible’ is our shared objective.”
CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will be focused on the outcomes specific to their shared clients. The collaboration between CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will roll out across all common markets over the course of 2019. The endeavor between CarePatrol and Kindred at Home also will allow for a more proficient transition of care, according to the two organizations.
“We are pleased to be recognized by CarePatrol and their advisors as an industry leader for home health services,” says Derek Nordman, Chief Clinical Officer of Kindred at Home. “A primary goal of the collaboration is to be of support to seniors and their families as they make the transition into senior housing.”
CarePatrol’s founders have been pioneers in the senior placement industry for the past 25 years. Franchising since 2009, CarePatrol has been a Franchise Satisfaction winner for eight consecutive years. With 150 franchise partners, CarePatrol is the largest senior placement franchise in the country. In early 2018, it was acquired by ComForCare, a premier provider of non-medical in-home care for aging adults. With ComForCare’s private equity partnership with The Riverside Co., CarePatrol is now part of a multi-brand franchise parent company, which has plans for more expansion across the continuum of care for aging adults.
