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.

____________________________________________ TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of interest to Agers in Place...
Everyone knows someone who has had shingles. If you had chickenpox you are at risk. There are one million cases of shingles in the US each year. While almost never fatal, shingles is dreaded because of its itching, pain, and persistence. And in some cases, shingles can damage vision or require hospitalization, primarily among those with compromised immune systems.
Our Tuesday Talk will discuss the causes and symptoms of shingles and treatment options. We will hear about the vaccines, the differences between the two, and recommendations for prevention and treatment. There will be plenty of time for questions.
