Benefits of a Continuing Care Retirement Comunity

If you want to make the most of your retirement, look no further than a CCRC. These continuing care retirement communities give you the chance to invest in your present — and your future. Because there are multiple levels of care on a single campus, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that even if your healthcare needs change down the road, your address can likely stay the same.

But the benefits don’t stop there.

Four of the Top Reasons to Choose A CCRC

1. You know peace of mind is priceless.
When you move into a CCRC, you’re making an investment in your future. If something should happen and your healthcare needs increase over the next 10 or 20 years, living in a community like this means that you likely won’t have to move again to get the quality care you need. You can stay right where you are, with the friends, amenities and activities you enjoy most, and still have access to top-notch care.

2. You’re ready to let someone else handle the chores.
Let’s face it. We all want someone else to take care of the dirty dishes, the piles of laundry and the yard work every once in a while. But what if you didn’t have to worry about chores… ever again? It may sound like a dream, but when you live in a CCRC, that dream becomes a reality. Our team handles everything from cooking and cleaning to laundry and housekeeping so you can spend more time doing what you love.

3. Upgrading your activities calendar sounds like just what you need.
Even if you like your routine, nobody wants to do the same thing over and over again without shaking it up every once in a while. And you’re a lifelong learner. You want to keep growing. Fortunately, each of our CCRCs has its own unique calendar of events full of things like fitness classes, dance lessons, ice cream socials, happy hours and educational workshops so you can easily spend your days learning something new and exciting. We even have evidence-based programs like B-Fit and Ageless Spirit designed to help you live the life you want. 

4. You love the idea of making more social connections.
If you feel a little lonely at home sometimes, you’re going to love living in a CCRC. Often people feel like they lose some of their social connections when they retire, but moving into a community gives you countless opportunities to make new friends and meet people who share your same interests and passions. And with all kinds of planned activities, excursions and social events, you could just meet your new best friend right here!
