Couple makes finding senior housing simple at no cost

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — A healthcare industry veteran and an award-winning community volunteer are the newest Oasis Senior Advisors. Illinois natives Kristy and Mark Malone bring an experienced, warmhearted approach to the Oasis Senior Advisors Algonquin franchise serving the northwest Chicago suburbs.

Kristy has spent most of her career as a medical assistant, working closely with patients and their insurance companies, and providing care and a compassionate ear when needed. Mark won the Bloomingdale Volunteer of the Year Award in 2016 for his more than 10 years of service to children in the community.

“The right people make all the difference, and we take special care to choose advisors who are truly dedicated to helping seniors and their families through one of the most challenging transitions of their lives,” Oasis Senior Advisors CEO Tim Evankovich said. “Mark and Kristy are people you can count on to stay with you, every step of the way.”

Navigating the maze of senior housing options is difficult, as the Malones can attest from their own family experience, but Oasis Senior Advisors are there to help make it simple. They research the options, use OasisIQ™ software to identify the best fits and join in as seniors tour the communities. All of it comes at no cost to the seniors and their families.

“We watched as Mark’s parents served as primary care facilitators for their loved ones and witnessed the struggles they encountered along the way in finding the best care for them,” Kristy Malone said. “We just knew there had to be an easier way. As an Oasis Senior Advisor, we now know that we can provide that easier way.”

The approach has proven successful, as Oasis Senior Advisors has quickly grown to nearly 100 locations across the U.S. since it was founded in 2014. The Bonita Springs, Florida-based franchisor was named to the GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch list in 2018.

New Franchisees Bring Personal Touch To Oasis Senior Advisors

Bonita Springs-based company continues fast-paced growth

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Oasis Senior Advisors continues to expand its senior housing placement network thanks to extraordinary people from across the country. Four new franchisees including a former Disney employee, a dedicated family man, a health care industry veteran, and a man who has witnessed firsthand what the right place means to aging family members have recently joined the Bonita Springs-based company.

“Our continued expansion speaks to the strength of our model, which is based on compassionate, personalized service at no cost to seniors and their families,” Oasis Senior Advisors CEO Tim Evankovich said. “We take great care to select franchisees ready to dedicate themselves fully to helping people navigate a difficult maze of housing options.”

Years ago, new Clearwater franchisee Jason Davidson watched as his grandparents grew to need more and more care as they aged. He saw how the senior living community where they lived played a significant role in preserving their dignity and quality of life. That memory stuck with him and prompted a career change after 20 years in the financial services industry.

“When I found out about Oasis Senior Advisors, I jumped at the chance to become an invaluable and trusted resource to families right here in my community during their time of need,” Davidson said.

Ben Meyer learned the importance of family and always having someone by your side as he grew up on a small farm in Iowa. Now married with two kids, he’s embraced his new home in greater Pittsburgh and is excited about becoming a cornerstone for seniors and their families as the Oasis Senior Advisor serving the South Hills and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania.

“I have a strong passion for assisting people through a process and providing guidance to give them peace of mind and reduce the stress of life changes,” Meyer said.

Annette Ahtes lived up and down the East Coast before moving to Florida to be near her son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons. The new Brandon-area franchisee spent many years in health care as a medical supply distributor and as the owner of a health care products company that catered to seniors.

“Talking with them made me realize what priceless gems they are in our society, and so often they are not treated as such,” Ahtes said. “Oasis helps me help the families and these wonderful people, making sure they find the support, care and lifestyle they so truly deserve.”

Steven Moses learned customer service from some of the most renowned practitioners at Walt Disney World Resort. Now, he’s applying that commitment to serving people every step of the way as the Orlando-area Oasis Senior Advisor.

“At Disney, I worked my way up into corporate convention management, but I missed the personal touch of putting that smile on the guests’ faces firsthand,” Moses said. “I came to Oasis to further my passion and help make Orlando a place I’m proud to call home.”

Oasis Senior Advisors weigh options, taking each factor of the family’s and individual’s needs into account, including level of care, independence and budget. They provide support from the initial inquiry to move-in day and beyond.

The franchisor, founded in 2014, is on GrowFL’s Companies to Watch list for its rousing success at startup and its potential for further development. For more information about Oasis Senior Advisors, franchise opportunities, or to connect with an advisor, visit oasissenioradvisors.com.

Franchisees celebrate success, prepare for more

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Oasis Senior Advisors is dedicated to finding new ways to make navigating the maze of senior housing simpler and less stressful for seniors and their families. That’s why more than 70 franchisees from around the country gathered along with the corporate team for the Bonita Springs, Florida-based company’s annual convention, held April 4-6 at the Sheraton Westport Chalet Hotel in St. Louis. Leading experts in senior living, caregiving, networking, team building and more shared insight, and top-performing franchisees received awards.

“This is a time for us to come together as a family and sharpen our focus,” Oasis Senior Advisors CEO Tim Evankovich said. “Our advisors regard the seniors and families who walk through our doors as an extension of our Oasis family, and that’s at the root of everything we’ve accomplished.”

Oasis Senior Advisors, founded in 2014, was placed on the GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch list for its rapid development, economic contributions and potential for further expansion. The national franchisor offers free, community-based referral placement assistance for seniors with an emphasis on dedicated, personalized service.

Dementia caregiving expert Teepa Snow, financial consultant Paul Stappas, and networking gurus Greg and Debby Peters were the speakers at the convention, where advisors received training and education designed to empower their success.

The event culminated in an awards ceremony that saw North Milwaukee franchisee Lauren O’Desky come away with top honors as Franchisee of the Year. Frederick, Maryland, franchisee Kriste Kidd earned the nod for Rookie of the Year. A pair of franchisee couples — Alan and Lee Ann Hoffman of Naperville, Illinois, and Paul and Susan Doyle of Westchester County, New York, and Fairfield County, Connecticut — won the Spotlight Award for contributions that have enhanced the company. And Denver Metro franchisees Daphne Jean and Lisa Theard earned Rising Star of the Year honors for their location’s growth over the past year.

“These people are all amazing models of our vision to serve seniors and their families as trusted advisors they can count on through an important and challenging period of transition in their lives,” Evankovich said. “We choose our advisors carefully, because what matters most is the trust and connection they’re able to forge with the people we help every day.”

They weigh options, taking each factor of the family’s and individual’s needs into account, including level of care, independence and budget.

Bonita Springs-based franchisor helps provide caregiver support

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — A vast burden sits on the shoulders of caregivers for those with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. That’s why Oasis Senior Advisors is teaming up with Seth Rogen’s nonprofit Hilarity for Charity and healthcare author Jennifer L. FitzPatrick to launch a free virtual book club for dementia caregivers based on FitzPatrick’s book “Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing the Stress of Caring for Your Loved One.”

Club participants will meet online for 15 weeks beginning May 15 to discuss topics addressed in the book, including how to pay for care and how to balance caregiving with a career.

“We’re thrilled to provide help for a growing segment of the population facing a tremendous challenge,” Oasis Senior Advisors CEO Tim Evankovich said. “As our population ages and dementia becomes more common, more caregivers require support for the stressful work they do every day.”

“Cruising Through Caregiving” is a down-to-earth yet authoritative guide to becoming a responsible, loving dementia caregiver without being overcome by guilt, exhaustion or worry. It calls upon advice and resources from FitzPatrick and 24 other professionals to help caregivers maintain their health, relationships, financial stability and more.

FitzPatrick is a gerontology instructor at Johns Hopkins University and a regular contributor to national media on dementia and caregiving issues. She’s also a certified speaking professional with a master’s in social work and broad firsthand experience as a caregiver.

Rogen and wife Lauren Miller Rogen founded Hilarity for Charity, which benefits families struggling to provide care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, funds Alzheimer’s prevention research, promotes brain health education and bolsters support groups. The Golden Globe-nominated actor and comedian has helped raise more than $10 million through an annual Hilarity for Charity comedy show now streaming on Netflix.

“It’s exciting to see so many talented and influential people recognize the value of helping those with Alzheimer’s and dementia as well as their families,” Evankovich said. “We’re dedicated to providing no-cost help for seniors and families, and to sticking with them every step of the way.”
