Continuing Care Retirement Communities (and the similar Life Care Communities) offer a “continuum of care.” Usually on the same campus they will provide Independent Living, Assisted Living and also Skilled Nursing services so that residents may remain with their friends and familiar surroundings even if they need additional care. CCRC’s and Life Care involve a contract and try to promise a lifelong residence. Most require residents to pass health and financial requirements and include substantial entry fees or “purchase” ($100,000-$1M) in addition to the monthly fees ($3,500-5,000). Some require a minimum and maximum age of 62 years and 83 years respectively at entry. These communities are licensed by the California Department of Social Services.
