WHY CAREPATROL

CarePatrol franchise owners help tens of thousands of seniors find the care they need, and in the process we make a real, tangible difference in the lives of the families we serve.

Proven Business Model

CarePatrol is the largest senior care placement franchise in the U.S., with over 150 locations in 44 states. Since our founding in 1993 our proven best practices have helped social entrepreneurs realize their dreams of owning a business that makes a difference in their communities.

The Demand is Real

More seniors need care now than ever before - and the phenomenon commonly known as the “Silver Tsunami” isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. The Population Reference Bureau reports that the senior population will reach 100 million by 2060.

You Don’t Need Experience

While CarePatrol franchise owners are known as subject matter experts in their communities, the majority of our franchise owners did not have any experience in senior care before franchising with us. We provide ongoing training and resources to help you become the trusted advisor your clients have come to expect.

Low Cost Investment

CarePatrol is a low cost investment opportunity with high earning potential. Our straightforward business model is home-based and turn-key, allowing you to keep overhead extremely low, while we help you to market your business quickly.

CarePatrol - Senior And Caretaker

WHY IS CAREPATROL A WISE INVESTMENT?

It's no secret that millions of Americans are rapidly becoming senior citizens on an annual basis, which has created an enormous need for assisted-living facilities. More than 8 million people require care from assisted-living facilities today, and that number is expected to reach 27 million by 2050. CarePatrol, as the original home placement brand, is in the best position to help seniors find the care they need — plus deliver peace of mind to families. Our low cost to entry and proven business model have helped dozens of entrepreneurs find lasting success in business. Because the demand for our services is only going to increase, CarePatrol is poised to grow for years to come.
