AIPatHome Quote of the Month
"Maturity is about to get
interesting! The boomers will bring a level of adventure, nuttiness,
intellectual curiosity, and sexuality to a stage of life that has

What is A "Continuing Care
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) are designed for
healthy people who want to age in place with adaptable accommodations
that meet their health and housing needs as they change over time. A CCRC involves a contract that guarantees services and care over an
extended period of time. The contract can be an entrance fee
(most common), equity agreement, or monthly fee (least common).
CCRCs are also known as "Life Care Communities", "Life Care
Facilities" and "Continuing Care Retirement Facilities".
