THE RIVER - NOVEMBER 6, 2015
Shell Point Offers
Shell Point Retirement Community
invites the public to learn how to
reduce the stress of transitioning
to assisted living care during a free,
educational presentation by Shell Point’s
assisted living expert McKenzie Millis.
The interactive seminar will take place
on Friday, November 20 at 10 a.m . in
The Springs at Shell Point.
Moving to an assisted living facility
often means downsizing, and the associ-
ated stress can delay a much-needed deci-
sion to improve quality of life.
“The great news is that there are
ways to ease and reduce the tension that
downsizing and relocating produce,” said
Millis. “The goal for this presentation is to
share an approach that makes the move
more comfortable and manageable, based
on our extensive experience in this area.”
The Springs at Shell Point is located
off of Summerlin Road and McGregor
Boulevard, just two miles before the
Sanibel Causeway, at 13901 Shell Point
Plaza in Fort Myers. The Springs offers
affordable, month-to-month assisted living
care on a private-pay basis, and provides
access to Shell Point’s resort-style ameni-
ties and healthcare services.
Call 454-2077 to reserve a place at
this free seminar. For more information

Healthy eating and proper exercise
are essential for a robust life,
but another important aspect
of healthy living is connecting socially.
Social connection actually strengthens
our immune system, improves physical
health and maintains psychological well-
being. Connection with others who feel
what we feel, understand how we think,
and who are able to relate with us on a
heart-to-heart, soul-to-soul level is one
of life’s most important skills and needs.
We need human connections for phys-
ical, emotional and spiritual health. Social
connection is one of the main traits of
folks who live into their 90s and 100s,
allowing for a long, full, satisfying, enjoy-
able and healthy life. Those who feel con-
nected have lower rates of anxiety and
depression, because their involvement in
a social network provides the giving and
receiving of trust and empathy. As you
might guess, those who are disconnected
reap the opposite results, such as physical
and emotional disease and isolation.
Belonging is an irresistible need of all
people. We are biologically, cognitively,
physically and spiritually wired to love,
to be loved, and to belong. When that
doesn’t occur, we don’t function as we
Be courageous and take the initiative!
Don’t be afraid or wait on somebody else
to connect with you. Fear is as old as
mankind, so instead be wise, strong and
resolute, and take the step to connect.
Foster, nurture and build your social con-
nections. It just takes a little courage and
a bit of adventure. Eat healthy and exer-
cise, yes, but don’t neglect to connect.
