What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

Choosing the right senior living facility for your needs can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be!

A Continuing Care Retirement Community or CCRC, is a retirement option that makes different levels of care available for seniors as they age and their needs change. As more services are needed the senior can then receive increasing levels of care without ever having to move to a new community.

When exploring your options, consider these advantages of CCRCs:

A wide spectrum of services:

CCRCs are a great option for seniors because they offer a variety of healthcare services, wellness programs, and social activities on a single campus. This gives residents peace of mind that when their abilities or health conditions change, they can be accommodated right at home. Seniors in CCRCs also have access to experienced healthcare professionals on-site — from registered nurses to physical therapists who are specially trained to provide individualized geriatric care.

Age gracefully, together:

As couples age, the needs of one spouse may become more complex than the other. As one individual’s needs progress, they can be addressed without having to move communities or be separated from their partner.

This relieves stress for everyone as spouses remain close to one another and their families don’t need to find a way to relocate parents to another facility. Everyone involved is assured they’re getting high-level care in the best environment.

Independent living:

For many older adults, starting in the independent living option with a CCRC is a great choice for a lifestyle where they can continue to pursue their hobbies and interests in a place where support is there when they need it.
While enjoying their independence, residents build great relationships with neighbors and staff and get comfortable in their new surroundings
