Aging in Place Downtown is a program of Comprehensive Care of Wilmington.
We are a non-profit organization in the State of North Carolina.
We now serve the entire city of Wilmington, NC!
If you are over age 55, live in 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. We began our program in a limited area of downtown Wilmington. But today, while we have kept our name, we serve seniors in the entire City of Wilmington.
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.

Redistricting Reform: What It Is and Why You Should Care
A year-and-a-half before the next election, the news is filled with controversy about gerrymandering and redistricting. Our Tuesday Talk will address the key issues:
- What is gerrymandering and how does it relate to redistricting?
- Why is redistricting reform attracting so much attention around the country and in North Carolina?
- What is happening right now in the Supreme Court of the United States: Rucho v. Common Cause et al?
- What is happening this session in the North Carolina General Assembly?
- What nonpartisan principles can be used to approach reasonable redistricting reform?
- What can citizens do to help assure fairly drawn election districts?
