Life Care Communities and Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Continuing Care Retirement Communities
Life Care Communities

 Continuing Care Retirement Communities, CCRCs, and Life Care Communities both offer a continuum of care that allows residents to “age in place”.  Campuses for these types of communities include separate housing for those who live independently, assisted living for those who need more support, and skilled nursing care for those who need continuous care.  Residents of CCRCs pay an endowment fee upon entering as do residents of a Life Care Community, but residents of CCRCs pay for services as they need them and Life Care residents pay a flat fee that remains the same as long as they live there. For both types of communities there is a second person fee for services.
