Your Monthly Costs are Always Predictable

Many new residents tell us that homeownership began to wear thin because of all the extras they had to pay for as separate items. The utility bills that kept going up, the amenities that were out-of-pocket, the repairs and replacements that reared their costly heads. Fortunately, these are things you never have to think about at The Clare. The Clare is your promise of relaxed, all-inclusive

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.
