Continuum of Care
As you age, you anticipate your care needs to change. We do too.
We understand and that's why several of our communities are continuing
care retirement communities (CCRCs). A CCRC is a community of housing
and health services that offers a continuum of options to meet the
evolving needs of seniors while allowing them the security of remaining
in a familiar environment. At a CCRC, a resident can begin at one
service level, perhaps independent living or assisted living, and
move onto other levels of care based upon needs. All of these services
are offered on the same campus. We believe this design allows us
to regularly integrate new information and best practices into our
programs and services to ultimately serve you better.
Doesn't it give you peace of mind knowing that you can move to
different levels of care, based on what your health needs are over
time, without leaving the comfort and familiarity of your living
