CarePatrol Announces Master Franchise in West Central Florida
Tampa Business Woman Brings Top Senior Placement Franchise Company to 10 Florida Counties
(Tampa, FL—February 4, 2014)— CarePatrol, a free senior living placement service for seniors and families seeking care options at independent living, assisted living, nursing home, and Alzheimer’s and Dementia facilities, is expanding its presence in west central Florida. Territories in the counties of: Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, Hernando, Polk, Seminole, Marion, Collier, Lee, and Charlotte are now available. There are currently two Tampa territories and one South Orlando territory operating.
“I looked at running or owning an assisted living facility but I didn’t have the medical background to care for seniors,” said Erin Bohacek, Area Developer for CarePatrol Florida. “I knew I could work within the senior placement franchise model and help seniors and their families with the often emotional and complicated transition to assisted living.”
Previously in real estate, Bohacek recognized the rapidly growing senior market and decided to explore franchise opportunities in the senior industry. She discovered CarePatrol and found that the corporate message, mission, and vision matched her objectives for a new senior care venture. Erin purchased her master franchise territory in January of 2014. She is looking for entrepreneurial franchisee candidates seeking an opportunity in senior placement who appreciate the difficulty many families face when coming to the decision to place their loved one in a senior facility and who truly aspire to help make that transition easier.
“This was a strategic move for us in order to maintain our high standards of service in a state that has an abundant amount of seniors looking for care,” said CarePatrol CEO Chuck Bongiovanni. “Having a master franchisee there was the right move for us and the clients we service.”
CarePatrol, a leader in the senior care industry, is experiencing rapid national expansion. There are currently 71 franchises; CarePatrol is projected to reach a total of 130 franchises in 2014. As the alternative senior franchise, CarePatrol franchisees take a personal interest in their clients and find it rewarding to provide families with the best options in senior communities, providing an unprecedented level of personal service to ensure seniors are matched with safe, affordable, and compatible facilities.
CarePatrol franchisees tour the top graded facilities in their territories and present seniors with facilities that match their medical, financial, and location requirements. They complete comprehensive consultations, personally drive clients to facilities for tours, and even conduct follow up visits once the client is placed. Franchisees also work with local doctors, social workers, and senior resource programs in their territories to provide a complete plan of action for seniors and their families to consider when deciding to move into senior housing.
“I witnessed firsthand the stress my father went through finding the best care home to place my grandmother during the last few years of her life,” said Bohacek. “I recognize now how helpful the guidance of a CarePatrol Senior Care Consultant would have been to him during that time.”
Entrepreneurs seeking an opportunity in the booming senior industry with a top industry rated franchise company are perfect CarePatrol franchise candidates. CarePatrol adheres to an established and successful franchise model and provides its franchisees with the necessary preparation to successfully run their territory. Each franchisee receives extensive training and continued corporate support to provide the seniors and families in their territories with the best options in senior care facilities. Extensive local market knowledge, corporate resources, and a genuine desire to help seniors, combine to give CarePatrol franchisees the competitive edge in providing their clients with the highest quality service.
CarePatrol has received national recognition for its franchise success, and was recently ranked the #1 Assisted Living Placement Franchise and #288 franchise overall in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2014 annual ranking of the Top 500 Franchises in the nation.
Franchisees must have a net worth of at least $150,000, with at least $70,000 liquid cash available, and be prepared to invest between $55,850 – $69,500.
