I work with Wilmington Seniors. Due to COVID, I can't make in person visits. Can you help me spread the word to our 65 and older seniors, that we can assist them with all their medicare needs.
A huge thanks to Scotss Hill Baptist Church for all the helping hands they have provided to our Home Delivered Meals Program over the last few months! They graciously provided us with 5 volunteers on Tuesday and Thursday every week throughout the pandemic. Here is a great tribute video highlighting our program. If you would like to volunteer, please call Lyrica Squires at (910)798-6423.
We are so grateful for all the support we have received from the community throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Scotts Hill Baptist Church has been so gracious to provide us with volunteers two days a week to help deliver meals through our Home Delivered Meals program. If you are interested in volunteering to deliver meals please call Lyrica Squires at (910)798-6423. Here is a video tribute Scotts Hill created:
Hope you can all make it to Pearls to the Polls October 27 11-3 Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.

When are you going to issue a mandatory evacuation? The governor already said this is life threatening to the entire NC coast line. Some of us cannot leave unless the evacuation order is given which puts us in danger.
What doctors in town have the new shingles vaccine? I need it given by a doctor to have it covered by my insurance.

Hello, My name is Kevin Skipper, I am a Seniors Advocate and I work with a company called North American Senior Benefits. I would like to ask you to please read this entire post because the service that we provide changes peoples lives. There is a very good chance that whoever is reading this post, either knows someone over the age of 50 or is over this age themselves. If so, we would like to meet you and/or your loved ones because every senior can benefit, regardless of their health or income. What we do is, we meet with seniors like you in their homes, conduct a FREE consultation to determine where we can help and then we go to work. We will go line-by-line of your monthly expenses looking to see if there is a way to lower any of them. We ask questions to determine where your quality of life can be improved. Then, we address each item one-by-one putting quality back in your life, reducing stress and putting money back in your pocket. We will go over the process and requirements for qualifying you for numerous programs that will provide you with FREE prescription medication. As well as programs that will provide you with exempted, reduced or deferred property taxes and even FREE hearing aids. For no cost at all, we will consult with you concerning your final wishes and prepare for you a Last Will and Testimate, Living Will and help you prepare for your final days and the time after. In addition, myself, as well as each of our specialists, are Licensed Life Insurance Brokers and we are contracted with over 100 life insurance carriers including ALL of the TOP State Regulated carriers. We will provide you with all the information you need to have a basic understanding of the different types of life insurance available, what they do and which type is most beneficial for each period in your life. Together, we will look at your current life insurance policy to explain exactly what kind of policy you have and what coverage/benefits it provides you. We will then answer any questions you may have and determine if it is optimal for the stage of life you're in now. As a courtesy, we will contact your current carrier to make sure your policy is In-Force and that your information is correct and up to date. If you have lost or misplaced your physical policy, we will have your current insurance carrier provide you with a new one. We also make sure your beneficiaries are correct and their information is current and correct. Then, we search through our entire network of Top State Regulated Carriers to determine if your current policy gives you the highest amount benefits with the lowest monthly premiums. Almost every senior with a current In-Force Whole Life Insurance Policy, will qualify for an entitlement that will substantially lower their premium and in a lot of cases, actually increase their death benefit. If we find a policy that better suits you we will take care of all the paperwork. We fill out the applications and deliver you new policy by hand so we can answer any questions in person. As a part of our ongoing service, we will conduct periodic wellness visits to ensure your needs are being met and in the process, hopefully create a lifelong bond with you and the other seniors we meet. In fact, most of the seniors we meet become almost like a part of our extended family. This is why we will also remain there for you at the time of your passing, because inevitably, this will be a very hard time in the lives of your loved ones. The last thing they need to worry about is figuring out the life insurance claims process on their own while also grieving. So, we ease this burden by getting all the required documents to the carriers electronically if possible and handling all the phone calls to expedite the arrival of the benefits check. With everything that we do for the people we meet, most people find it hard to believe that everything is 100% COST FREE! Well, its not a SCAM or "Too Good To Be True" because we are not providing this service without compensation. In my opinion we are over compensated! Not only are we monetarily compensated by the insurance companies, but we also receive the greatest compensation possible. We receive the gratitude of the people we help and the satisfaction of knowing that we are able to change peoples lives and make a real difference. So, if you're still reading this please do not wait any longer. Either call (910)515-2940 or send me a Instant Message here on Facebook to schedule your FREE In-Home Consultation Today. Our team of specialists would love to meet with you and show you that this is not too good to be true. The consultation takes less than 30 minutes, is done in the comfort of your home and can be done Monday through Saturday between 0900(9AM) and 1900(7PM). Again, there is never a cost for the services we provide and our specialists will never accept money from you for any reason. So, aside from 30 minutes of your time, what do you have to lose? We have already changed the lives of countless people, why not see what we can do for you. Contact us now and schedule your Free In-Home consultation. Also, If you like the idea of a company providing a service like what is discussed above, then please click to share it on your page so we can reach more people and change more lives. Thank you in advance and I am anxious to speak with all of you... Sincerely, Kevin D. Skipper Sr. Senior Benefits Coordinator 910-515-2940
