Education Seminar at Shell Point Retirement Community Offers Tips for a Smooth Transition to Assisted Living

FORT MYERS, Fla. ( June 16, 2015) – According to the National Center for Assisted Living, 70 percent of all assisted living residents move to a care facility from a private home or apartment.

The interactive seminar will take place on Thursday, July 9, at 10 a.m. in The Springs at Shell Point
