Continuing Care Retirement Communities

A Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC, offers residents the ability to age in place by combining independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing to accommodate residents’ changing needs. Healthy older adults can join the community by living independently in single-family homes or apartments. As residents come to need assistance with activities of daily living or due to a medical condition, they can move into assisted living or nursing care facilities on the same campus.

CCRCs can be the most expensive of all long-term-care options, as they generally require an up front entrance fee, as well as monthly charges that can range from $3,000 to $5,000. Various types of service contracts are available and may include options such as:
• housekeeping
• meal service
• transportation
• social activities
