Many people wait until a medical crisis before investigating, considering, or making the move to assisted living. But the most difficult time to make such important—and sometimes complicated—decisions is when your health is in question and you are feeling weak. Senior adults and their family members can learn the facts and weigh the benefits of assisted living for themselves or a loved one by attending a free seminar at The Springs at Shell Point.
Shell Point’s assisted living expert, McKenzie Millis, is holding monthly seminars to help attendees determine if it is the right time to consider assisted living. During each seminar, she will discuss the difference between independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care. She will also address how to cover assisted living costs and explain the top 10 signs that your loved one is in need of help. These free seminars will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 20, and Friday, March 19, at The Springs, located at 13901 Shell Point Plaza, Fort Myers, Florida. Register for one of the seminars by calling 239-454-2077.
Assisted living provides support for shopping, meal preparation, activities of daily living, and housekeeping, along with the benefits of having a physician, pharmacy, and lifestyle amenities in close proximity. Making the decision to relocate early can allow you to stay independent and make the choices that are best for you or your loved one.
