What makes CarePatrol unique?
CarePatrol franchise is the original senior home placement franchise. Our Founder and Executive Vice President of National Strategic Partnerships, Chuck Bongiovanni, created CarePatrol in 1993 because his experience as a social worker awakened him to the fact that seniors were often not being placed in facilities that could meet their needs. Fast-forward 20 years, and CarePatrol is now the largest senior home franchise in the United States, with over 150 locations in more than 35 states. CarePatrol is unique because our franchisees are subject-matter experts and have deep knowledge of the care options in their areas. As a result, our franchisees help thousands of seniors find the right facilities and have helped thousands more family members get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their loved one is receiving the right treatment.
