Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) offer older adults an unique way to “age-in-place” by transitioning through the various types of senior care options.  Independent living, assisted living, memory care and nursing care are typically all located on the same campus.  Most require a significant entry fee or “buy-in”  in addition to monthly rent.  This initial fee is sometimes partially refundable upon the resident’s death.   One great advantage of CCRCs is that it enables spouses who may need different levels of care to remain on the same campus.  It also allows seniors to make and keep the same friends throughout their time in the community.  Unfortunately, due to the large financial commitment, CCRCs may not be an option for seniors with limited resources and income.
