Nationwide, there are nearly 2000 Continuing Care Retirement Communities. Often, getting into one takes time as families and individuals negotiate. These communities are designed for independent seniors (over 62) in good health to live without the headache and maintenance of everyday homeowning issues. While they provide numerous benefits, the core benefit of finding a CCRC is that it recognizes the value of independent living. These communities are made of active, independent seniors like yourself who demand comfort as they age.

At a CCRC, you and your spouse are provided with regular meals when you choose. The facilities offer entertainment, wellness programs, and excursions. However, while these are some of the services you pay for a member, they are optional. Fundamentally, you are still an independent, active senior able to go where you desire and do what you want. But why not eliminate hassle, reduce the toll work and maintenance takes on your body, and enjoy the fruits of your lifetime of work. CCRCs are a means to transition into a new stage of your life but retain all your former independence.
