CarePatrol Buys Competitor, Will Convert 60 Units


CarePatrol Franchise Systems acquired their biggest franchise competitor, Assisted Transition. The deal will give CarePatrol approximately 150 franchises by the end of the year after converting about 60 into the CarePatrol system.

Chuck Bongiovanni, CEO of the Gilbert, Arizona-based chain, says he pursued the purchase “because we believe that there needs to be changes in the placement industry.”

A social worker by professional background, he says CarePatrol uses a social work model to deliver services to clients, including, for example, by answering client phone calls using Master’s level social workers rather than the typical “call center employees.”

Franchisees must receive their national certification as a certified senior advisor to maintain their franchise license. The purchase makes CarePatrol 10 times larger than their nearest competitor in the assisted living placement industry, the company says.
