Questions to Ask a CCRC
June 3, 2019
If you are considering your senior living options, you will probably at some point consider a Continuing Care Retirement Community like Abernethy Laurels.
CCRCs usually offer a variety of living arrangements, including freestanding homes, duplexes, and condos; multiple dining options, health and wellness centers, a broad range of social activities, complete home maintenance, and best of all, a continuum of healthcare from assisted living to memory care to long-term and nursing care.
Because CCRCs require an entrance fee, of which you may only recover a portion should you leave, and a monthly fee, it's a major financial decision. A CCRC may seem to be the most expensive senior living option. But if you have the assets, and want almost everything taken care of, it could be the best choice.
A few questions that you may want to ask the CCRC to get the peace of mind you need:
- Who lives there and what do they do?
- Is the CCRC financially sound?
- How much is the entrance fee and is it refundable?
- How much are the monthly fees and what do they cover?
-What if my spouse or partner needs a different level of care?
- Who regulates the CCRC?
