Residential living is commonly referred to as “independent living.” A resident lives in his or her own residential home. Services like housekeeping and meal delivery are typically available. Acute medical treatment in the form of nursing care, physical therapy, or assistance with personal needs is also available. A CCRC typically offers amenities like hobby rooms, outings, gardening areas, outdoors spaces, recreational facilities, swimming pools, or walking trails. Residents enjoy the benefits of retirement living, with a safety net of health services available and numerous amenities on site.
