What to expect at a CCRC
Research shows that seniors who live in a CCRC are happier and healthier than their contemporaries who remain in their own homes. Being in a community of friends increases life expectancy and decreases the chance of chronic illness.
The entrance fee is a substantial investment that returns substantial dividends:
- The entrance fee is a contract for access to needed future care, such as rehabilitation after a hospital stay.
- The entrance fee fosters a sense of investment, encouraging residents to become involved and use their skills to enrich community life.
- Residents can stay in the community they choose, surrounded by people who know and care for them.
- Residents may be able to deduct the portion of the entrance fee attributed to health care services from their federal tax bill.
Some helpful definitions:
- Entrance fee – One-time fee (a percentage may be refundable to your estate)
- Monthly fees – Lifestyle package covers residence, maintenance, dining and more
- Residency agreements – Paperwork detailing fees, services and health care options
- On-site medical care — When you pay an entrance fee, you enter into a contract that assures access to future care or post-hospital rehab on campus.
Types of care at a CCRC
- Assisted Living – Personal care services help with activities of daily living, including dressing, personal hygiene and medication management, in private, comfortable residences.
- Memory Support – SAIDO is an opportunity for residents with memory impairment to meet with trained staff for structured sessions focusing on reading, writing and arithmetic using materials developed by the Kumon Institute in Japan. This allows the resident to participate in a regular structured program with CLCS employees and volunteers. In this program, staff engage with residents three to five times a week in a one on two setting for 30 minute sessions. Throughout the program, we have seen some residents have an increase in engagement and some even progress to higher levels to meet their needs.
- Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing – Short-term rehabilitation or “sub-acute care” is designed for those who have been discharged from the hospital, but are not medically or physically able to return home. On-site health centers, staffed 24/7, offer long-term care, Skilled Nursing and medical supervision.
