Continuing Care Options And Support

Due to the difficulty of moving from home to home, Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) eliminate a lot of the stress and issues that may arise. CCRCs simplify the process for seniors to move from one level of care to another.

A lot of the time, seniors are healthy when they move into a community but as they may require increased care, CCRCs are ready. This easy access to these services can provide comfort for all parties involved. Continuing Care Communities offer the three levels of care below and most offer a fourth, memory care:

  • Independent Living
  • Assisted Living
  • Skilled Nursing

Benefits Of Continuing Care Retirement Communities

For healthy seniors, the standard options of meals, housekeeping and security are still on the table but CCRC options give the ability to have peace of mind as potential changes to health may occur. To go along with that, the continuing care communities still offer all the same events and activities as other senior living communities. The usual activities such as:

men playing cards

  • Card games
  • Cooking demos
  • Crafts
  • Book clubs
  • And other options

These options make CCRCs as enjoyable as every other community. Also, they have the same transportation that can take you or your loved one to parks, museums, and other local places. The convenience of a CCRC is hard to match if you are looking for a community for you or your loved one.
