What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community?
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), offer a range of living options all on one campus – from independent living cottages and apartments, to personal care, to memory care, to skilled nursing.
Residents have an array of amenities and services through all levels of care that foster independence and socialization.
Along with the extra measure of support through personal care and skilled nursing, Pleasant View also offers rehabilitation services to those who may require the service either following a surgery or hospitalization.
The key element for continuing care means that residents have priority over non-residents to move among levels of care within the community, as needed.
CCRCs Offer Seniors an Attractive Lifestyle Option
For many decades, CCRCs have offered older adults an innovative and independent lifestyle that differs from other housing and care options. CCRCs are especially attractive to seniors making decisions for their long-term care future. They allow seniors to convert home equity or other assets into housing and to receive daily living services and health care in a way that keeps monthly expenditures more stable. Today, sponsors include religious, fraternal and community organizations, universities, hospitals, and companies dedicated solely to the development and operation of senior living communities.
