Seniors in Southwest Florida are facing their own specific challenges after Hurricane Ian.
Many are on fixed incomes, living alone with no family in the area and disabled and now they have flooded homes or no home at all.
WINK News talked to the Naples Senior Center CEO about the specific trauma these seniors are dealing with.
One senior at The Landmark Naples said they’re all hurting one way or another.
The Naples Senior Center provided their community with a mental health counselor who ran a group session, allowing people living here to share their stories and express their emotions in a safe space.
A couple of seniors in those sessions said it helped them feel heard.
