Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) offer an innovative and independent lifestyle for older adults. This type of community is different from other housing and care for older adults because it offers a long-term contract that provides for housing, services and nursing care, all in one location. The CCRC continues to meet your needs in a familiar setting as you grow older.
As a CCRC resident, you can take advantage of a wide variety of activities and services conveniently offered within the community. There are no restrictions on lifestyle. You can continue to travel, volunteer and enjoy your life outside the community as much as you like.
The CCRC’s emphasis on the individual, coupled with a supportive environment, allows you to continue to pursue your lifelong interests.
