Continuing Care Retirement Communities (also called Life Care Communities) offer residents numerous benefits and access to higher levels of care over their lifetime. But how do they really work? Why are the contracts so complicated? Are they always so expensive? This webinar will unravel some of the confusion and explain not only the industry basics, but critical factors in vetting a community.
The goal of this session is to educate Aging Life Care Professionals members about Continuing Care Retirement Communities and the basics of contract options.
At the end of this webinar, Aging Life Care Professionals® will be able to:
- Explain options and better guide their clients on this topic of CCRCs
- Identify the governing structures and oversight of CCRCs to allow for best guidance and appropriate level of care for clients
- Differentiate the medical and financial admission requirements for CCRCs
