Mercy’s Continuing Care Retirement Community
Our comprehensive services allow residents to remain on our campus as their care needs change. Residents who choose a continuing care contract receive priority access to the Care Center and other benefits.
Choosing a senior living community is a big decision. Our continuing care retirement community (CCRC) allows residents to stay with us – on the same campus they call home – even as their care needs change.
What is a CCRC?
A CCRC – also sometimes referred to as a Life Plan Community – provides residents with the opportunity to form and sustain long-term relationships with staff and other residents as their needs change and they move through different care settings. This option can be especially important for couples. As one partner’s care needs change, both individuals can still live on the same campus.
Residents of Mercy Retirement & Care Center who choose a continuing care contract instead of a traditional residency agreement receive additional benefits. CCRC residents are eligible for priority access to the Mercy Care Center. In addition, if a health issue requires a stay in the Care Center, residents in an assisted living apartment don’t have to pay the full rental fee on top of the skilled nursing fee to hold their apartment until their return. There is an entrance fee associated with the continuing care contract.
