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...
It’s Your Choice -
Advance Care Planning Made (Slightly) Easy
The possibility of illness and disability as we age is never welcome. But knowing that our own wishes have been considered and will be carried out may make that reality slightly more acceptable.
Our Tuesday Talk will explore the many legal avenues for expressing preferences. Who should make decisions if we are incapacitated? How much treatment is too much? What if our wishes are opposed by family members? What documents are necessary and who should have copies? There will be plenty of time for questions and North Carolina planning forms will be supplied. Remember that each state has slightly different requirements, so if you have prepared your documents elsewhere, this is an opportunity to verify that they are valid. Whether you are addressing these issues for yourself or a family member, this presentation will be helpful.
