Have you had a talk with mom and dad? If it’s time for them to move into a senior community, it can be overwhelming to decide on the one that makes the most sense for your senior parents. During your search, you come across terms you may not be familiar with, like “CCRC.”
United Methodist Communities at Bristol Glen is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in New Jersey, and can adjust each resident’s level of care as needed. There are many benefits of living in this type of senior living community, and we’ve outlined them for you within this article.
What exactly is a CCRC?
A CCRC is a community that provides the scalable services and living arrangements that any senior needs. If mom or dad is still very independent, they can live in the community on their own terms, and otherwise go about their usual routines. It’s a flexible approach to senior living where the resident gets to run their own life while reaping the benefits of community living.
Who lives in a CCRC?
All types of seniors can be catered to in a CCRC! If dad is newly retired and simply wants to downsize to a more manageable home while he travels and enjoys retirement, then these fully serviced and maintained properties are the ideal lock-up-and-go. If mom is getting older and wants the convenience of in-house dining, but also a lively social calendar and a chance to make more friends, this is also a great choice. And finally, if mom or dad needs extra help with day-to-day activities, managing a chronic health condition, or even has a memory loss condition that requires 24/7 attention, a CCRC like Bristol Glen can assist with that too.
Seniors of all ages, abilities, and lifestyles live at our CCRC because their experience is tailored to their needs, making it the ideal choice for them and their families!
Scalable services that work as residents age
At our CCRC in NJ, our philosophy focuses on abundant living and aging in place. Essentially, every activity and service is ready and waiting for your senior parent, but it’s supplied at their discretion. This means they can scale services up or down as needed (for example, if dad develops dementia or if he needs nursing care after an operation or illness). Perhaps, the best part is they’ll never have to move again. All care services are provided on-site, ensuring that your parent stays in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible.
These services are also designed to add quality of life and convenience to everyday living. Your loved one may not need medication management or nursing now, but having access to an onsite restaurant, gym, beauty salon, housekeeping services, community clubs, and social events are all wonderful options for a full and active life in a CCRC!
