Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Residents in continuing care retirement communities pay a large one-time entry fee plus a monthly maintenance fee in exchange for lifetime housing and access to multiple levels of long term care services. Housing units can be apartment-type dwellings, high-rise buildings, a subdivision setting, or any other housing design.

Most continuing care communities have designated assisted living units and a skilled nursing facility either on or near the facility. Moving into a Continuing Care Retirement Community requires signing a legally binding contract with significant financial implications. The California Department of Social Services oversees compliance with these contractual responsibilities.
