Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) combine independent living with access to on-site health care services for later life, including assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care. Depending on the specific financial agreement, some or all of these services may be guaranteed with an initial deposit and stable monthly fee, providing predictable medical costs for continuing care residents.
Stability extends beyond coverage of medical costs. It also means stability of residents’ physical environment—assisted living, memory care and other services are provided on site—and stability of residents’ social environment.
These physical and social connections provide a higher quality of living at any stage of life.
Children of CCRC residents enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing exceptional housing, invigorating social environments and high-quality medical care is always available.
For thousands of older adults, CCRCs are a compelling option. More than 750,000 older adults live in CCRCs, according to the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. Life care communities provide the most extensive coverage, but they’re not the only type of CCRC agreement.
Choosing to enter a CCRC is a major life decision, and potential residents benefit from knowing all available options. With that in mind, here are some of the most common agreements, including an explanation of what makes life care different:
When choosing a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), consider all aspects of a community, from its financial status to location, amenities, quality of care and community culture.
