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...
Do you pass the Bellamy Mansion but never go inside? Are you interested but never seem to have the time, or do you dread walking flight after flight of stairs? Now, from the comfort of your chair, you can get a full video tour of the Mansion, complete with narration by knowledgeable docents.
Our Tuesday Talk will present the Executive Director and the Chair of the Volunteer Committee of the Bellamy Mansion offering background and insights about the house and grounds. They will show a 32-minute video offering a virtual tour experience, featuring real volunteer guides presenting areas of the site as they would on a walking tour. Very few museums in the country offer anything comparable. If you watch carefully, you are likely to recognize some of your friends and neighbors highlighted in the film! There will be plenty of time for questions.
