There are many seniors, though at different stages with their health and mobility issues, who still wish to reside in areas with individuals who they are comfortable with, in similar stages as themselves, and can provide the assistance that is needed. Thanks to Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), individuals who may have very different assistance needs can have the choice to reside in the same community as others. CCRCs are retirement communities that cater to a number of different aging needs. These needs span from assisted living, to independent living, to nursing home care.
CCRCs allow individuals at different stages in their lives to continue living and residing with other seniors who may be at different, yet similar stages. This allows for everyone to remain active, mobile, and fit. These are all important aspects of elder life that must be maintained in order to continue living life to its fullest and remaining healthy. CCRCs also offer the same activities and amenities as a retirement community. This includes social events, recreational activities, and social gatherings for all of the residents.
