WFTX: Local Fort Myers Senior Care Franchise Offers Safe Tips for Elderly Loved Ones During COVID-19 Pandemic

How Seniors Helping Seniors franchisee Evan Zelden is adapting his business and offering senior care tips amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seniors are one of the most at-risk demographics for COVID-19. 

According to WFTX, a FOX affiliate in Fort Myers, Seniors Helping Seniors franchisee Evan Zelden is offering tips to community members looking to care for elderly loved ones during these uncertain times. These tips are especially helpful given that many Fort Myers community members are unable to remain in close physical contact with their elderly loved ones due to the COVID-19 virus.

“Especially for seniors, they can get very depressed. Many of them are living down here and their families are up north or elsewhere, so it’s important for them to either be making video calls or contact by phone at least to still stimulate their minds with having that social interaction to keep their spirits up," Zelden said to WFTX reporter Noelani Matthews about his Seniors Helping Seniors business. 

Zelden has also been adapting his caregiving services in order to help prevent the spread of the virus among caregivers and receivers. Seniors Helping Seniors has started practicing more social distancing and sanitation. Zelden says the caregivers also wear a mask and gloves when visiting clients’ homes.
