Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)
Choosing a senior living community is a big decision. Mercy Retirement & Care Center is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) that takes a tiered approach to the aging process. Residents stay with us – on the same campus they call home – even as their care needs change. Think of it as maintenance-free living with long-term health care security – part independent living, part assisted living and part skilled nursing.
Residents have the opportunity to form and sustain long-term relationships with staff and other residents as 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. CCRC’s also provide added comfort for adult children and can remove much of the stress associated with caring for an aging parent.
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.
Types of CCRC Contracts
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.
- Life Care or Extended contracts offer unlimited assisted living, medical treatment and skilled nursing care.
- Modified contracts provide services for a specific length of time.
- Fee-for-Service contracts have an initial enrollment fee with assisted living and skilled nursing services paid for at market rates.
