Continuing Care Retirement Community Jobs in OH
"Continuing care retirement communities" (CCRCs) provide residents with a lifetime continuum of care. They assure the care recipient independent living as long as possible, and provide for nursing assistance if or when it is needed. This type of living arrangement is particularly useful to -financially sound couples who are in need of different levels of care and who wish to maintain a strong relationship, even though the typical CCRC resident is an 80-year-old, highly educated, single female.
Continuing care retirement communities gained a somewhat negative reputation in the 1980s because some closed due to financial difficulty. However, the number of CCRCs in the United States has reached about 1,200 and continues to grow. Approximately 350,000 residents live in these for-profit and not-for-profit facilities, and this number will continue to increase as more individuals meet the entrance requirements for CCRCs. Entrance restrictions normally specify a minimum age, as well as a certain level of health and finances.
