About Us

America's Original Senior Placement Service

Founded in 1995 by a social worker after observing the personal trauma experienced by a family whose loved one had been placed in the wrong type of facility, CarePatrol became the pioneer organization of the now thriving senior placement industry. Today, under the careful direction of that same founder, we're helping families make safe choices all over America and are developing our brand with a steady and calculated growth to ensure a superior platform for the support of our franchisees nationwide.

CarePatrol assists seniors and their families with the difficult task of identifying the most appropriate residential facility or in-home care service in their area. Each of our offices are contracted with dozens of providers in their region and are paid handsomely every time a client is placed with one of them. The service is completely free to clients as our franchisees are paid directly by the providers. It's a business in which each party benefits and feels tremendous satisfaction every time the service is performed.

The senior placement business model has significant advantages over the homecare operations that have become so popular over the past decade. In addition to a much lower initial investment, without the ongoing expense, headache, and liability of employing caretakers, the total overhead and ease of operation is almost incomparable. Our one-of-a-kind marketing program distributes referrals provided by both headquarters and other franchisees for a 30% fee to the source on paid accounts.

Where can I see CarePatrol's FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document)?

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
