Who Benefits from Living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

While exploring your future living options, you may have come across the term “continuing care retirement community” (also called a CCRC) and the term “Life Care.” These types of communities offer a number of benefits, beyond ensuring that your future health care needs are accounted for. A Life Care community is a type of continuing care community that offers all-inclusive access to events, amenities, services, and activities in addition to financial peace of mind. 

Life is unpredictable, but a CCRC ensures that you can rest easy knowing that your future needssocial, physical, and financialare accounted for. Here’s who benefits most from living in this type of community. 

Seniors Seeking More Ease and Leisure

Imagine your calendar being packed with exciting social events, activities, and engagements—and finally having enough free time to do it all. From housekeeping services to an on-call maintenance team, and more, senior living communities offer services that enable you to live a leisurely, hassle-free life.

In addition to supportive services, communities like The Stayton offer enriching amenities, such as an on-site salon and barbershop, an indoor pool, performing and creative arts centers, and various dining venues. Plus, you’ll have access to a robust community event calendar full of opportunities to learn, engage, and expand your mind. Start your day catching up with a friend over breakfast, take a group exercise class, treat yourself at the salon, and unwind with friends over drinks in the lounge.

Seniors Looking for a Sense of Security 

Most Life Care communities require a one-time entrance fee, along with a predictable monthly fee that is inclusive of most activities, amenities, and services. Should you require additional care your Life Care contract type determines how the costs will be covered. Since your contract type is selected before moving, you can trust that there will be no surprise expenses. 

Making these provisions now also means that you’ve decided when and where you are going to receive your care in the future. This eliminates any future uncertainty about where you will go or how these costs will be accounted for when the time comes. 

Active and Social Seniors

The right community can empower you to continue living a vibrant life where you can pursue what matters most—from connecting with like-minded peers to partaking in your favorite pastimes or even trying something new. 

Loneliness is a common feeling among older adults and can take a toll on mental, emotional, and physical health. Communities foster a sense of connectedness and provide numerous ways for residents to meet and engage with others. Join a walking club, schedule a puppy play date at the park, attend an interesting lecture with a friend, or get a group together to explore the local sights. There are endless ways to fill your social calendar. 

In addition to being part of a close-knit community, living in a CCRC enables you to stay nearer to your friends and familiar faces throughout your life.

Free-Spirited Seniors

Moving into a continuing care retirement community doesn’t mean you must stop living life to the fullest. The right continuing care retirement community should empower you to pursue what sparks your joy, wholeheartedly. Stay in the comfort of your community and take an art class. Venture out to a local museum, or explore the many events, festivals, restaurants, and museums that the city hosts. Go abroad on a Caribbean cruise with your neighbors. There are endless opportunities for exploration, learning, and expansion. In a CCRC, a carefree lifestyle is within reach.
