Marjorie P. Lee is a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC. What does that mean?
CCRCs offer care at any level, with households ranging from:
In general, CCRCs offer a tiered approach to caring for elders, accommodating residents’ changing needs. Say, for example, that you move in as a healthy adult and live well on your own in an apartment. But should assistance with everyday activities become necessary, you can move into assisted living or – if more care is needed – into skilled nursing care or a special memory support apartment designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other cognitive issues.
CCRCs like Marjorie P. Lee give older adults the option to live in one place for the duration of their life, with much of their future care already planned for. This can provide a great level of comfort to seniors and their loved ones and take much of the stress out of the family caregiving relationship.
It is very important to review each option as well as the long-term financial plan to support them. It is also important to know that the community being considered will be financially viable over the long term. Request a weekend stay at the community to ensure it’s the right choice.
