Aging in Place Downtown is a program of Comprehensive Care of Wilmington.
We are a non-profit organization in the State of North Carolina.
If you are over 55, live in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina and are beginning to think about life as a Senior, the AGING IN PLACE DOWNTOWN Program is meant for you. Regardless of your health, wealth, or type of home, you will be eligible to participate in this innovative program to help you remain in your own home as you age.
AGING IN PLACE DOWNTOWN enables seniors to remain in their own homes with our service, called “Options Counseling.” We help you identify your current and future needs and assist you in accessing services that will keep you at home. We consider medical, mental health, social, homemaking, legal, technology, safety, home modification and maintenance, financial, nutrition, housing, and transportation factors that are crucial to aging in place.
We inform you of resources in the community and suggest ways to pay for them.

____________________________________________ TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of interest to Agers in Place Downtown...
LOCAL CELEBRITY BRINGS DOWNTOWN TO LIFE
Known as the Wilmington Time Machine, the man in the straw hat with walking cane can be seen leading tours in downtown Wilmington pointing out objects and places of interest, large and small. Crowds - half his age - can be seen chasing the iconic figure as he brings to life the local industry, lifestyle, and culture of over 250 years. Bob Jenkins, now aged 82, has been sharing his passion for historic Wilmington for decades. His fervor is expressed in a recent conversation: “Wilmington … has a rich blend of cultures from all over the world. Its diversity and freedom of religion and faith, and the architecture in Wilmington, is representative of the greatest in the entire nation.”
Our Tuesday Talk will bring Bob Jenkins out of the weather and into the comfort of our library meeting room. His Talk will use the Yellow Long Leaf Pine and Tarheels as the starting points for a fascinating and detailed depiction of Wilmington’s past. He promises numerous historic visual aids and display items to supplement his discussion. There will be plenty of time for questions.
Bob Jenkins grew up in Sneads Ferry, NC. He has traveled around the world, living in, among other places, Florida, Colorado, Washington, DC, Europe and Africa. He was a founding member of the Historic Wilmington Foundation and claims that when the restoration of downtown Wilmington was begun, he purchased the first building. With Wilmington Adventure Tours Company, Bob has led literally thousands of tours and tourists throughout historic downtown.
