What is the Difference Between CCRC and Assisted Living?

When you think of a Life Plan community (also known as a CCRC), what do you envision? If you picture an assisted living or “nursing home” environment, you are far from reality.

“Nursing homes,” or assisted living, offer services specifically catered to the higher healthcare needs of senior adults. A nursing home is a place where staff provides medical care in a comfortable environment, and activities are sometimes offered within the community.

While nursing homes certainly do a wonderful job of caring for seniors who are in need of medical care, there is sometimes a misconception between these services and other kinds of senior living.

Life Plan communities (also known as CCRCs) are senior living communities that offer so much more than what a stereotypical nursing home may look like.

Life Plan communities offer a wide variety of levels of care, ranging from independent living to assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and more. The great thing about this type of senior living is that all levels of care are offered to each of the residents – each resident is able to create an individualized health plan that changes as they age.

Don’t just take our word for it though – hear from the residents! Marvin and Renee Schulman are residents at Springpoint community Monroe Village. They shared, “Our last home at a 55+ community in Freehold was comfortable, but it lacked the things we will need in the future. We were also tired of worrying about maintaining our house as we got older. The cooking, the cleaning, all of it was getting tiresome. So, we started our search for a new home. We examined a lot of communities but there was no place as warm and welcoming as Monroe Village… We know that living here will be easier for us in the years ahead. And if anything should happen, we’ll be well taken care of. “
