Care Patrol
Care Patrol is a nationwide company that assists with locating assisted living, independent living, and nursing homes
for people in need.  Mary Ellen Gilbert is the point of contact for all of Florida. You, the client, or the family can
simply call Mary Ellen's cell 410-610-4054 and provide her with the offender's name, amount of monthly income, and requested
housing type. She will work to find a home for the client within their budget.

The facility pays Care Patrol for the referrals so the client does not pay for the service. Depending on the client's needs,
Care Patrol can provide several housing options.  Care Patrol recently found a facility that would accept one of my homeless
client with active psychiatric concerns.  Mary Ellen says they have options for sex offenders also.
