Choosing a Continuing Care Retirement Community

By Michael Fink

You’re not sure about retirement – and you certainly do not want to move several times.  And, most importantly, you are not “old!” Maybe consider a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) also known as a Life Plan Community.

A CCRC is the complete package – supporting your active lifestyle and dedicated to maintaining your independence with multiple levels of care should you need it, all under one roof. With the multitude of living options and luxurious amenities, you will feel like you’re living in a resort – and you are! You’ll never have to move again. It’s a reassuring and important promise CCRC’s offer.

Because you’re healthy and active, you will start in Independent Living, but if your needs change, you can easily transition to Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation. Surrounded by friends, you’ll have easy access to the care you need in your own home.

Studies show that by providing enriching activities, residents live longer, healthier and happier lives. It’s about how many years young you are, not how old. You will have the freedom to engage in wellness classes, participate in social activities, enjoy a fresh culinary experience and live life to the fullest.

One of the best things about CCRC’s is the option of maintenance free living – no housework or cooking! The Lakes at Litchfield includes full maintenance and repair, housekeeping and deep cleaning, lawn care, security, transportation services and a flexible dining program. Retiring at a Continuing Care Retirement Community will open up a world of possibility to allow you to experience retirement how it should be.
