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. Transitioning to an assisted living care facility often means downsizing, and the associated stress can delay a much-needed decision to improve quality of life.

Shell Point Retirement Community invites the public to learn how to approach this downsizing process with less anxiety during a free, educational presentation by Shell Point’s assisted living expert, McKenzie Millis. The interactive seminar will take place on Thursday, July 9, at 10 a.m. in The Springs at Shell Point

“There are ways to go about downsizing and relocating that reduce tension and facilitate a smooth transition,” said Millis. “The goal for this presentation is to provide guidelines that make the move more manageable, based on experience we have in this area.”

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.
