WHAT IS A CONTINUING CARE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY?
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.
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.
