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 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 we serve seniors in the entire City of Wilmington.
AGING IN PLACE 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 how to access them, and we even suggest ways to pay for them.

____________________________________________ TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of interest to Agers in Place...
If you have had or are planning surgery, you probably know a lot about your surgeon and the procedure you’ll be having. But what do you know about the anesthesia and anesthesiologist? While anesthesia carries significant risk, it is often little thought about by patients anticipating surgery.
Our Tuesday Talk will offer an anesthesiologist’s overview of anesthesiology including commonly used medications, complications, pre-op safety guidelines, and perspectives from the operating room on the opioid crisis. We will hear stories from 25 years of anesthesia practice, including missions to a number of underserved countries.
The particular practice model that anesthesiologists use in treating patients here at New Hanover Regional Medical Center will be addressed by one of the unsung members of the surgical team. There will be plenty of time for questions.
Thomas Dalton, MD, is an attending anesthesiologist with the New Hanover Health Network and was a member of the Operating Room Steering Committee at NHRMC. A graduate of Stanford University and Duke University School of Medicine, he completed an internship in Surgery at Harvard University’s Massachusetts General Hospital and residencies in Florida, Texas and Massachusetts. In 1997 he completed a fellowship in regional anesthesia at Virginia Mason Medical Center. He has memberships in numerous medical societies and has published widely. Dr. Dalton is the founder of Pelorus Systems, LLC Operating Room Efficiency Consultants which developed a computerized timing system responsible for making NHRMC’s operating rooms the most productive in the state of North Carolina.
