CarePatrol Announces Care Collaboration with Kindred At Home
PHOENIX, Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CarePatrol is the nation's largest Senior Placement organization helping families find safer care options including assisted living, independent living, memory care, in-home care and nursing homes. Recognizing that the transition to a new care setting is usually following an acute care stay or medical event, CarePatrol has chosen to collaborate with Kindred at Home, the nation's leading provider of home health, hospice and community care services, with over 45,000 employees and more than 800 locations nationwide.
"Our goal in engaging in this care collaboration is to assist in the stabilization of care for the senior in transition, provide better outcomes related to the move-in process and help with the elongation of stay over all. Kindred at Home is well prepared to provide the collaborative support and specializes in geriatric care, just like CarePatrol. Keeping our senior clients happy and healthy in the location they call home is a shared objective," said Chuck Bongiovanni, president of CarePatrol.
"The combination of the services of CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will also support additional choice in care locations post hospital stay," Bongiovanni states. "Providing seniors with every option in an effort to live their 'Best Life Possible' is our shared objective."
Derek Nordman, chief clinical officer of Kindred at Home, said, "We are pleased to be recognized by CarePatrol and their advisors as an industry leader for home health services. A primary goal of the collaboration is to be of support to seniors and their families as they make the transition in to senior housing."
CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will be focused on the outcomes specific to their shared clients. The collaboration between CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will roll out across all common markets over the course of this year. The endeavor between CarePatrol and Kindred at Home will also allow for a more proficient transition of care, according to the two organizations.
CarePatrol's founders have been pioneers in the senior placement industry for the past 25 years. Franchising since 2009, CarePatrol has been a Franchise Satisfaction winner for eight consecutive years. With 150 franchise partners, CarePatrol is the largest senior placement organization in the country, and in early 2018, was acquired by ComForCare, a premier provider of non-medical in-home care for aging adults. With ComForCare's private equity partnership with The Riverside Company, CarePatrol is now part of a multi-brand franchise parent company, which has plans for more expansion across the continuum of care for aging adults.
