What are Continuing Care Retirement Communities?

Everything You Need in One Community

Brookdale continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) provide a luxury senior living option where seniors can live, socialize and receive the care they need, while knowing that they can remain in the same community should their care needs change in the future.

Our continuing care communities provide at least three levels of care — all on one campus. These levels of care could include independent living, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and skilled nursing.

So whether a resident requires a short-term recovery stay at a skilled nursing center or their health needs increase, they can transition from one level to the next without leaving the community. This provides a permanent link to friends and families for them by assuring they remain in a single location.

These retirement communities operate as either rental or Life Care models. A rental CCRC operates on a monthly rental fee basis, while Life Care by Brookdale CCRCs require an entry fee in return for guaranteed health care. As a result, prospective residents may choose the financial model that is most conducive to their retirement wishes.

Some of the features you can expect at our CCRCs include beautifully landscaped grounds, walking paths, courtyards, swimming pools, fitness centers, beauty salons, bank services on-site, and elegant spaces for entertaining friends and family.

Many of our CCRCs feature spectacular locations, providing residents close proximity to beautiful natural attractions, such as Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf Coast beaches. Each day is filled with a wide selection of onsite and off-site activities and clubs to share with friends and neighbors.  

Brookdale’s Life Care program at our CCRCs empowers residents to enjoy a dynamic lifestyle with choices to meet their changing needs. The Life Care program is secured with a refundable equity payment (or entry fee) purchase that covers both the cost of your future accommodations as well as discounted healthcare services, if or when needed. Best of all, our Life Care program comes with a Life Care Guarantee, promising your accommodations are guaranteed for life, even if your assets are exhausted through no fault of your own.

All continuing care retirement communities include at least three levels of care in one location:

  • Independent living, where residents live on their own and have access to a wide array of amenities
  • Assisted living, which provides help with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and eating
  • Round-the-clock nursing home care
  • Some CCRCs also offer home healthcare services
