Planning ahead for lifetime care? A CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) may be your answer.



What's a CCRC?

Simply put, CCRCs are retirement communities with an important added benefit: lifetime care, which ensures that you can "age in place," having planned ahead in terms of access to additional services and the cost of long-term care. The typical CCRC is a community that includes independent living in apartments or house units, an assisted living facility, and a nursing home or skilled nursing facility.

Some CCRCs also include short term rehab, hospice, special memory care facilities, and even home health care services.

You can check out Kansas' CCRCs at our page: Ohio Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Life Care Communities, CCRCs.
