Researching senior living communities and ultimately making the best choice for your future is no easy task. It is a lifestyle, housing, healthcare, and financial decision all wrapped up in one. With all the various types of 55 and over homes and retirement communities out there, it can be challenging just to know what questions to ask. This is particularly true when it comes to continuing care retirement communities, often referred to as CCRCs or “life plan communities,” which provide residents with a full continuum of care, ranging from independent, active adult living all the way to 24-hour skilled nursing care, usually on one campus. While access to a full continuum of care offers peace of mind for residents and their families, it is also very important for prospective residents to do the proper senior living research. After all, you want to be sure the retirement community is there for you when you need it most. In addition to evaluating the independent living housing options, resident services, amenities, and community culture, understanding the CCRC residency contract details and financial management of the organization are all important considerations.
