BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (May 8, 2020)— A deep desire to help healthcare
workers. A commitment to its communities. A decades-long friendship. That
was the package built out of passion and caring that has enabled Oasis
Senior Advisors to provide plastic face shields for hospitals and skilled
nursing facilities across the country.
Oasis Senior Advisors is a nation-wide network of compassionate advisors
who connect seniors and their families to the resources they need and
help make the transition to a senior living community that is the right
fit. That compassion took on new meaning recently as Oasis Senior Advisors
President John Benbrook took an idea, connected with an old friend and
soon thousands of face shields were being produced for hospitals and skilled
nursing facilities that partner with Oasis Senior Advisors.
“We really felt like we could help in a good way, help our partners
who need it most,” Oasis Senior Advisors President John Benbrook said.
Benbrook reached out to high school friend Don Terwilliger, president of
Digital Color Concepts, a high-tech printing company based in Mountainside,
N.J., to inquire about their operation producing the shields.
“They jumped all over it,” Benbrook said. “They saw the
hotspots in New Jersey, New York and Maryland. It was no mystery to them.
It literally took us five minutes to put this plan together.”
To date, the printing facility has produced thousands of shields that have
been distributed to Oasis Senior Advisors franchisees who have donated
them to 51 hospitals and 91 skilled nursing facilities. Digital Color
Concepts has the capability of producing 500 shields a day and could make
up to 17,000. The company is making them for hospitals, nursing homes
and food and beverage companies.
“And this is at zero cost to those receiving the shields,”
Benbrook said. There are shipping costs involved but those are being donated
by the franchises distributing the masks.
“In the face of change and in the face of challenges, you focus on
what you can control and where you can have a positive impact,”
said Benbrook, who also thanks his good friend for stepping up so quickly.
“There is 35 years of trust there.”
In this difficult time, Oasis Senior Advisors franchisees continue to work
with senior living communities, skilled nursing facilities and partners
in every industry to connect seniors and their families to the right resources.
“In this uncertainty and doubt, it is easy to get paralyzed,”
Benbrook said. “Our value is how we communicate. We are finding
creative ways to connect to families and business partners through virtual
tours and utilizing safety protocols.”
