A CCRC is different from other senior housing facilities in that it typically provides a written agreement that the community will provide appropriate care for the resident's lifetime for those who qualify for continuing care. In most cases, an entrance fee is required along with a monthly fee.
The vast majority of seniors will advise you not to wait too long to make a move; do it before it's an absolute necessity and start your search long before you need to. This can be a very exciting time in your life!
All of these are important factors to consider.
Many times the community will have entrance requirements based on age, health and financial status. To live in a CCRC, you may or may not have to pay an entrance fee or life lease, and additionally, there will be monthly payments.
Then, marshal your forces and keep your good humor. No move is without its challenges along the way. Here's to a smooth transition!
