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.

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.
