BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (March 30, 2023) — Finding the perfect senior housing for yourself or a loved one can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. As the need for services for seniors continues to grow across the country, so does the network of franchisees at Oasis Senior Advisors. The Bonita Springs, Florida-based company has added four new franchises, including East Sacramento, Calif.; Sarasota and Bradenton, Fla; Savannah and Hilton Head, Ga.; and the Denver Metro area.
New franchise owners Laura and Samantha Gilbeau have a lifetime of knowledge of the East Sacramento area. Careers in the biotech and dental insurance industry have enabled them to see a demographic of underserved people and offered insight into the needs of seniors. Both became advocates for the older adults they interacted with through their daily work and felt it was time to step out of their current roles and into one where they felt they could have an even greater impact.
“We understand how difficult it is to navigate the process of finding a community that is both the right personality fit and meets the needs of seniors in our community,” said Laura. “Our sole purpose is to take the burden and difficulty off the seniors shoulders and walk you through every step involved with senior care options. We are dedicated to providing valuable guidance with seniors best interest top of mind. Everyone deserves real support during this life transition, and we are blessed to help ease the stress during one of life’s most challenging times.”
Ken Schlacter, Oasis Senior Advisor in the Sarasota and Bradenton area of Florida, has a professional background in providing products and services for healthcare facility development; most recently working with senior living communities. This experience offers first-hand knowledge of the stress that adverse health events and issues can place on families, including the importance of finding the right placement for loved ones.
“A few years back, my father experienced a health event which squarely put me in the caregiver role. Being his advocate was an incredible gift and it was truly an honor making sure that he received the proper care and attention he needed and deserved,” said Schlacter. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution for everyone. It is important to find a senior living option that provides highly qualified staff, specialized care, and a stimulating environment.”
Savannah and Hilton Head owner, Chris Rollwitz is a former member of the U.S. Air Force who met his wife in Georgia, where his two children were also born. The family fosters dog and cat rescues in their Savannah home. Rollwitz has worked in technology for the past two decades for companies like Hewlett-Packard and Gulfstream Aerospace. He is also an adjunct professor teaching business leadership and ethics, and serves in local faith groups teaching and counseling based on his degrees in Biblical Studies and Counseling.
“I look forward to assisting families and their loved ones with finding the perfect Oasis,” said Rollwitz. “I enjoy helping others and navigating the challenges of finding the perfect living arrangement is an important way to serve our local families and their loved ones. It’s very rewarding to help ease some of that stress and help families find peace.”
