FORT MYERS, Fla. (October 23, 2008) — Shell Point Retirement Community will host an Assisted Living Open House on Saturday, November 1, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Arbor Assisted Living located in the Woodlands at Shell Point.

“Assisted Living facilities are seeing a rise in interest as prospective residents and their families seek alternatives 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 and resident support services. “Assisted Living offers individuals more of a 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 Arbor Assisted Living and King’s Crown. 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. One of the most unique features at the Arbor Assisted Living is the in-house medical center with a full array of qualified medical personnel. 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.

The King’s Crown features 120 residential units with studio and one-bedroom floor plans; an expansive private dining room; library; computer station; and a variety of activity and gathering spaces.
