Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)
Is also known as a Life Care Community and provide a range of aging care needs from independent, assisted and nursing care (and often dementia care as well) in a single community. Most residents of CCRCs move into the community while still living independently and will remain in the community for life, transitioning into different types of care if and as needed. CCRCs can be costly, and have a wide range of entrance and recurring fees. CCRCs are not independently or assisted living facilities but rather are a combination of all types of residential communities and provide a continuum of care for residents.
