Continuing Care Retirement Communities
Imagining your ideal retirement shouldn’t have to include worrying about what you’re going to do if your care needs change down the road. You worked hard to reach this point, and you deserve to spend your retirement kicking back and relaxing, exploring new hobbies, making new friends, or, well, doing just about anything you want.
It sounds pretty good, right?
That’s the kind of life you can enjoy when you decide to move to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). These communities offer a unique feature called a continuum of care, which means you can easily transition among levels of care if you need a little extra help in the future.
So even if you start out in independent living but need another care option like assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing later on, you don’t have to worry about changing communities. You can likely stay in the same place, surrounded by the same wonderful people you’ve come to know and love.

Two Types of CCRCs
Continuing care retirement communities are a wonderful choice if you want peace of mind knowing you have options even if your financial or medical situation changes down the road. But before you start packing your bags, you need to know that there are two different kinds of CCRC: rental and Life Care. While they have a lot of things in common, there are a few notable differences that are worth understanding before you take the leap to senior living.
You will spend a lot of time making sure the community you choose is the right one for you — with wonderful staff, fine amenities, a beautiful apartment and an enjoyable lifestyle. Wouldn't it be nice to improve the likelihood of remaining in that wonderful community, even if your care needs change later down the road?
A CCRC can help you do just that.
