A popular care option as our loved ones age is a continuing care retirement community. This is a living arrangement where someone can usually age in place without ever having to leave the community. It is especially helpful to spouses who have different care needs but want to be together under the same roof (despite living in different rooms). Most continuing care retirement communities have a wide range of living arrangements including independent living, assisted living, memory support assisted living, nursing home care and sub-acute rehabilitation services. All of these services – when combined – can meet most any needs as someone ages. This episode discusses the pros and cons of continuing care retirement communities.
