What is a CCRC?

In a Changing Industry, CCRCs Provide Exceptional Value

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, continuing to meet your needs in a familiar setting as you age.

What Services Are Included?

CCRCs provide a wide array of services tailored to each resident’s needs, abilities and preferences.

Typical services and amenities include:

  • Nursing and other healthcare services
  • Emergency help
  • Meals and special diets
  • Personal assistance
  • Housekeeping
  • Assisted living
  • Scheduled transportation
  • Recreational and educational activities
