We provide the extra care and support needed for individuals residing in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) throughout New York City including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau County.
Institutional care comes in all shapes and sizes. An interesting option for seniors is Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). These offer independent housing, assisted living and skilled nursing home care under one roof. Someone may start off living independently, but may graduate into higher level care. In a CCRC, they will be able to move into different levels of care as they need it without a big, traumatic move.
CRCCs provide a continuum of care for your elderly loved one
A CCRC offers various options from independent living to assisted living to nursing home care. As a person’s health deteriorates, they are able to move to higher levels of skilled care without having to change residences completely. Spouses can live within close proximity to each other while still receiving the level of care each one needs. Each wing of the CCRC comes with different amenities. Those who are more independent will have different psycho-social needs than those who are not. As well, the classes, entertainment and meals cater to the diverse segments of residents.
There is usually a pricey fee to enter, but amenities are available such as dining options, housekeeping, social and recreational programs, transportation, 24 hour security and health care services such as memory care. This all in one option is attractive to those who can afford it.
