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.

The Arts and Creative Aging in Wilmington
Wilmington has a robust arts scene that can be a source of inspiration for our growing older population. From visual art, to theater, to music, Wilmington offers diverse opportunities to enjoy and benefit from The Arts.
Our Tuesday Talk will explore the many options and talk about ways to engage with the local arts community. We will also learn about national models for creative aging.
