Continuing Care Retirement Community Jobs in RI
Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) provide residents with a lifetime continuum of care. These facilities assure the care recipient independent living as long as possible, and provide for nursing assistance if or when it is needed. They are 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 most CCRC residents are physically and financially independent 80-year old females.
The number of continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) in the United States has reached approximately 1,200 and continues to grow. Approximately 350,000 residents live in these facilities, and this number will increase as more individuals meet the eligibility requirements for entry into CCRCs. Entrance restrictions normally specify a minimum age, as well as a certain level of health and finances.
