One of Shell Point’s experienced retirement counselors will offer a presentation that explains the numerous benefits received when becoming a resident at Shell Point. Guests will learn about the benefits of lifecare, the numerous retirement options available at Shell Point, and see an overview of the community through a video presentation. Once the presentation is complete, guests will have the chance to ask specific questions, and schedule a visit to the community for a personal tour.

“We understand that people may want to learn more about the community before driving from the Sarasota and Naples areas,” said Ted Benjamin, sales manager for Shell Point. “By bringing the presentation closer to their current homes, we are able to educate them on the benefits of lifecare. From this, they can determine if lifecare is an option they would like to consider for their life planning, and if it is, they can take the next step to come for a tour of our beautiful campus and see it for themselves.”

Admission to these seminars is free; however, seating is limited, so reservations are required and may be made by calling 239-466-1131 or 1-800-780-1131.
