Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)

A housing community that offers different levels of care -- from independent living apartments to skilled nursing care. Residents move from one setting to another based on their care needs but continue to remain a part of their CCRC's community. Typically, CCRCs require a significant payment (called an endowment) prior to admission, then charge monthly fees above that.
