Assisted Living Seminar at The Springs at Shell Point Examines the Benefits of Supportive Care for Seniors

FORT MYERS, Fla. ( April 29, 2015) – Shell Point Retirement Community invites senior adults and their family members to learn the facts and weigh the benefits of assisted living at a free seminar held on Friday, May 15, at 10 a.m. at The Springs.

During this informational presentation, Shell Point’s assisted living expert, McKenzie Millis, will identify the top 10 signs that indicate the appropriate time for a move to assisted living. Also, learn the difference between independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care.

“Many people wait until a medical crisis before investigating, considering, or making the move to assisted living,” said Millis. “But the most difficult time to make such an important—and sometimes complicated—decision is when your health is in question and you are feeling weak.”Assisted living provides support with medication administration and management, 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.

The Springs at Shell Point is located off of Summerlin Road and McGregor Boulevard, just two miles before the Sanibel Island causeway, at 13901 Shell Point Plaza, Fort Myers. The Springs offers affordable, month-to-month assisted living care on a private-pay basis, and provides access to Shell Point’s resort-style amenities and healthcare services.
