Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) are retirement communities with accommodations for Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing (Nursing Home Care) and Memory Care, all located on the same campus and offering residents a continuum of care. A person can spend the rest of his/her life in a CCRC or life plan community, moving between levels of care as needed. People in the senior housing industry housing industry call this “aging in place” and provides a stable consistent environment.

Outside of a CCRC, elderly people often need someone to mow their lawns and take them to the grocery store. Perhaps they don’t always want to prepare their meals. At a CCRC, the following services may be offered, depending on the monthly maintenance contract:
- Lawn care
- Garbage and snow removal
- Social activities
- Some utilities
- Health monitoring services
- Emergency call monitoring
While memory care services are often thought of in connection with things like dementia and Alzheimer’s, they can be beneficial for any senior who is beginning to struggle with remembering important things or is no longer able to care for him or herself.
