RESIDENCES Senior housing (Continuing Care Retirement Communities) Continuing Care Retirement Commu- nities (CCRC) offer residents the ability to“age in place”with the knowledge that they won’t need to move to other facilities for health reasons. Whereas most retirement communities offer independent living and assisted living only, Continuing Care Retirement Com- munities provide a continuum of care that includes independent and assisted living, secured Alzheimer’s care and skilled-nursing care. Each level of care is provided in a sep- arate building and/or area of a campus and nearly all residents move into the community while living independently (without the need for assisted-living or skilled-nursing services). Contracts CCRCs may offer two basic types of contracts: life care (Type A), and modi- fied (Type B). The primary difference is the amount of skilled-nursing care received, without a change in the monthly fee, under each contract type. Life Care Contracts (Type A) Life care contracts include unlimited enriched-housing/assisted-living care (if offered by the community) and un- limited skilled-nursing-facility services, along with independent housing and residential services and amenities. The resident’s monthly fee cannot change due to a change in the level of covered health care needed by the resident (except for normal operating costs and inflation adjustments). This means that the resident pays the same monthly fee in the skilled-nursing facility as he or she paid in independent housing. Modified Contracts (Type B) Modified contracts include indepen- dent housing and residential services but include only a limited number of days in a skilled-nursing facility. The number of skilled-nursing days covered in a modified contract may vary, but the contract must include at least 60 days of skilled-nursing-facility coverage, exclusive of Medicare days.
