Continuing Care Retirement Communities

CCRC, also known as a Life Care Community

What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) tend to be larger complexes, often a campus, that offer most of/or the entire “continuum” of care – Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Skilled Nursing. The concept is that a resident can stay in the same community and move through the levels of required care. The accommodations range from homes, patio homes, apartments, and rooms, depending on the specific level of care; with a range of activities, dining options and amenities. Most often, CCRCs require a larger up front fee (aka “buy in”) dependent on the concept, and some require that you initially enter as an independent resident. A CCRC is an appropriate setting for seniors who are currently independent, and would like the ability to receive increasing care without having to leave that “campus”.
