Couple Comes Out of Retirement to Open Service for Seniors

Jim and Jackie Winkel open CarePatrol for families looking for care in Walnut Creek.

Walnut Creek, California (PRWEB) July 17, 2013 - CarePatrol Franchise Systems is proud to announce the opening of their newest franchise in Walnut Creek, California. CarePatrol helps families find assisted living, independent living, memory care and in-home care for seniors who can no longer care for themselves or need more assistance to maintain their independence. The new franchise will be owned and operated by Jim and Jackie Winkel.

Prior to operating CarePatrol, Jim, was a Silicon Valley sales executive. He and his wife also partnered in a successful tax preparation service. Now they are excited about providing a needed service to the senior community of which they are a part of.

Jim was inspired to purchase a CarePatrol franchise because having gone through housing and care issues with family members and close personal friends, they were motivated to make a difference to the senior community.

CarePatrol sets itself apart from others in the industry by focusing on their recommended senior care option’s care and violation history. The CarePatrol franchisee researches the current state care and violation history before they offer the care facility the option to become part of the CarePatrol network of pre-screened providers.

CarePatrol franchisees perform a Care Level Discovery Interview to determine the appropriate level of care needed. Service doesn't stop there. CarePatrol will then personally bring clients to the recommended communities much like a realtor brings families to see new homes.

CarePatrol CEO, Chuck Bongiovanni states that "while most of our competitors are simply focused on moving seniors into any community, our franchisees spend the extra time to make sure that they are making the best recommendations their client families." He states "Jim and Jackie are very caring individuals who will provide a great service to the Walnut Creek community."

About CarePatrol
