Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)

What is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) or a community with a continuum of care?

A continuing care retirement community (CCRC) or one with a continuum of care allows older adults the ability to "age in place" by providing, in addition to independent living residences, access to additional health care services such as assisted living, various levels of nursing care, and rehabilitation, usually on the same property. Independent living residents have the opportunity (and often a priority position, as is the case at all of The Loomis Communities) to apply for admission to the health care residences if their needs change in the future. In addition, communities with a continuum typically provide independent living residents with a service package designed to provide a carefree lifestyle. Transportation, activities, interior and exterior maintenance, flexible dining services, and utilities are just a few of the services available at many communities offering a continuum.
