Aging in Place now serves the entire city of Wilmington, NC.
All of our services are free.
We are a non-profit organization in the State of North Carolina.
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...
REMEMBERING, FORGETTING, AND THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN
THE HEALTH OF THE AGING BRAIN
In February 2014, our Tuesday Talk described brain function and memory, and what is normal as you age. Now, nearly six years later, we revisit the subject, reviewing the differing ways that we remember and forget, and learn more about disease processes that affect the brain and memory.
Today, we see considerable progress in memory science and we will hear a discussion of the latest approaches to reducing the risk of memory loss. We will address the distinction between attention-grabbing headlines that promise breakthroughs and more realistic and promising developments. We will also learn more about the MARS Memory-Health Network and its upcoming expansion. There will be plenty of time for questions.
Dale J. Cohen, Ph.D. – Professor of Cognitive Psychology at UNCW and CEO and Director of Research at MARS Memory-Health Network. Dr. Cohen has received awards from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Guggenheim Foundation in support of his research. He is a lively and engaging speaker who will challenge what you think you know about the aging brain.
