Thinking of downsizing? Concerned about rising health care costs? Worried about out-living your retirement funds? If you are thinking of any of these things, then you will want to consider Shell Point for your next move. You’ll quickly see that all the amenities Shell Point has to offer- and the fact you can preserve your income- make it a no brainer to move there.
It’s amazingly beautiful waterfront location and proximity to Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach make it unmatched in the area. “We are a dynamic community full of vibrant individuals who are growing together in an experience of life-long learning”, says Mary Moore, Moving Resources Manager for Shell Point.
Several of the amenities that Shell Point has to offer include: championship golf, free boat dockage for life, four swimming pools and three health and fitness centers, hundreds of continuing education opportunities in the Shell Point Academy, extensive arts and entertainment opportunities, multiple restaurants, miles of walking paths, an on-site pharmacy, on-site doctors and medical specialties (5 doctors, 21 physician specialists), on-site Physical and Occupational Therapy, assisted living and skilled nursing, and an on-site hurricane shelter that holds over 2000 people!
Most importantly, they offer Lifestyle with Lifecare. Simply defined, Lifecare is a contractual transaction that promises in exchange for an entrance fee and a monthly fee you receive a maintenance-free home, services and amenities, and healthcare services for life. Meaning, you pay a fee to Shell Point and then you don’t have to worry about any housing costs or health care costs ever again. How great is that?! The condos and houses in Shell Point are extremely nice, very elegant, and have excellent views!
Shell point is unique in that it offers three different monthly payment options for residents. The A Contract is comprehensive and includes Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing for life with no limitations. The B Contract is slightly modified to include Independent Living and Assisted Living, but no Skilled Nursing. Finally, the C Contract is 100% refundable and includes Independent living with all Assisted Living with Skilled Nursing being available on a pay as you need basis.
David Moreland, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, says, “the assumption of the Lifecare product is that like every other phase of life, retirement is a process and not an event. Most retired individuals redefine quality of life as the years pass.” Why not preserve your assets and live with the peace of mind knowing that your largest out of pocket expenses (housing and health care) are already paid for?
