C2C: (V) Aging in Place 7pm ET
To move or not to move? That is the question.
Aging in place or continuing care communities: Housing choices for Seniors or senior family members.
Most everyone has heard about “aging in place.” While this popular living concept works very well for many, aging in place is not a one size fits all situation. Remaining in your home or considering various Continuing Care Retirement options will be discussed at this informative and interactive event.
Continuing Care Retirement Communities, (CCRCs) have become a viable and successful solution for thousands of active people country wide. Also known as Life Care Communities, they offer older adults the comforts of home, companionship, medical care, all in one location. Couples and single people who are still living vibrant busy lives are moving into these facilities and letting others do the cooking, housekeeping, and heavy lifting. This talk is about what to know when you are looking, what questions to ask, whether city or country living, apartment, or house, and finances.
Addressed will be the basics of what you need to know about Continuing Care Retirement Communities, similarities, differences, rentals vs. buy-ins, profit vs. nonprofit facilities, and more. “If you’ve seen one CCRC, you’ve seen one CCRC”. If you learn only one thing, this is the takeaway. Every CCRC is different!!!
