Shell Point Retirement Community opened its third assisted living venture, The Springs, one year ago this month.
New to the Shell Point lifecare tradition, The Springs offers assisted living services to the public on a month-to-month private pay basis. Assisted living services at The Springs are available at an affordable rate while maintaining the high quality care for which Shell Point is well known. By providing assisted living services on a month-to-month basis, The Springs allows residents a higher degree of flexibility including seasonal and respite stays.
When the newest assisted living facility (ALF) at Shell Point officially opened its doors for new residents, Virginia Moore was the first person to move into the facility On Wednesday, April 11, 2012.
"I first heard about The Springs construction and renovation plan from good friends of mine that are Shell Point residents," said Moore. "I had always dreamed of coming to Shell Point, but never thought it would be possible. On the day that I moved in, I was met by all of the staff welcoming me to my new home; it is something that I will never forget. I was overwhelmed with emotion and was so excited to move in.
"A year later, I couldn't be happier with my decision to come to The Springs. I love my third floor apartment, which gives me a beautiful view of the fountain. I have met so many nice people and value the very special friendships I have made since moving here. The care is excellent and I really appreciate the daily support I receive," she said.
The location of The Springs at the entrance to Shell Point is less than two miles from the Sanibel Island causeway. This location is just one of the many benefits that residents of the facility enjoy.
The Springs facility's amenities and services include a heated swimming pool, exercise facilities, transportation, dining, 24-hour healthcare staffing, and a professional activities leader who coordinates high-quality events and activities, educational and entertainment programs, and opportunities for socialization and personal growth.
