Public Invited to View Benefits of Assisted Living at Shell Point

FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 13, 2010) —  Shell Point Retirement Community will host an Assisted Living Open House on Saturday, April 24, from 9am to 11am at the Kings Crown Assisted Living located on The Island at Shell Point.

Please join us for an enjoyable and informative event at the King’s Crown Assisted Living at Shell Point. This event begins at 9am with a light continental breakfast and a presentation about the benefits of Assisted Living at Shell Point by Rita Southern, Director of Assisted Living for the community. Following the 30 minute presentation guests will be given a tour of the facility and furnished residences. At the end of the tour, interested guests are welcome to a take stroll through the resident gardens and Shell Point’s award-winning Orchid House.

“Assisted Living facilities allow prospective residents and their families an alternative to nursing care for parents who may need assistance with the activities of daily living, but do not require full time skilled nursing,” said Rita Southern, director of assisted living facilities.  “Assisted Living offers individuals a comforting home-like environment, while improving the daily quality of life through a variety of amenities.”

Shell Point has two assisted living facilities on site, the King’s Crown Assisted Living and the Arbor Assisted Living.
The King’s Crown was recently renovated and features 120 residential units with studio and one-bedroom floor plans; an expansive beautifully appointed dining room; library; computer station; and a variety of activity and gathering spaces.
The Arbor Assisted Living is an elegant center with a total of 132 units, and a variety of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans.  Amenities on site for residents include a full-time activities staff, fitness center, salon, game rooms, chapel, library, and a number of social areas throughout the building.
