FORT MYERS, FL (April 28, 2008) –Shell Point Retirement Community will host an Assisted Living Open House on Saturday, May 10, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Arbor Assisted Living Facility located in The Woodlands at Shell Point.

“Occupancy in assisted living facilities has gone up across the country as families seek alternatives to nursing care for parents who may need assistance with the activities of daily living, but do not require full time skilled nursing,” said Rita Southern, director of assisted living facilities and resident support services. “Assisted living provides a more home-like environment while improving the daily quality of life through a variety of amenities.”

This event will offer tours of the Arbor, and presentations throughout the day to provide information on assisted living at Shell Point. Refreshments and entertainment will be on hand while visitors learn about the amenities and services offered to residents of Shell Point.
