Benefits of Living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)

From the variety of amenities to the peace of mind it provides, living in a CCRC community can be an excellent option if you or a loved one is among the 70% of seniors in the U.S. looking for long-term care and a nurturing lifestyle.

Menno Haven, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) situated in the heart of south-central Pennsylvania, offers a range of lifestyles and care options, including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing care, and memory care. All levels of care are on the same campus, enabling residents to avoid the stress of moving while accessing the level of care they need as they grow older.

In this article, we will explore the unique benefits of Menno Haven’s CCRC model and how it can provide residents with a comfortable and fulfilling way of life.

What is a continuing care retirement community?

CCRCs are communities offering a full continuum of supportive services, allowing older adults to thrive as they age. One of the main benefits of this community is that it provides residents with smooth transitions through multiple levels of care on a single campus if their health and needs change.

CCRCs offer essential services and amenities in a comfortable and secure living environment, such as meals, housekeeping, transportation, and social activities.
