What exactly is a continuing care retirement community?
A continuing care retirement community (CCRC) provides a continuum of care for seniors at all levels of independence, from independent living in a house or apartment, to assisted living, to skilled nursing care or a secure dementia unit. A CCRC is an entire campus of living choices, and as physical or mental needs change, the resident may make a transition to a different level of care and age gracefully in the same community without having to relocate.
National Church Residences provides affordable senior housing in 28 states and in Puerto Rico. Affordable senior housing costs no more than 30 percent of a person's income. Most of our communities provide housing for low income seniors who meet the criteria set by HUD.
