A program of Comprehensive Care of Wilmington and
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 helps enable 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.
They inform you of resources in the community and suggest ways to pay for them.
Current programs available are:
- Options Counseling
- Home Base
- Tuesday Talks
