There are many options for retirement living. One popular option is a Life Plan Community (LPC), formerly known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC. This type of community is different from other housing options because it offers lifestyle, life enrichment and wellness programming, maintenance-free housing, home health services, and nursing in a coordinated continuum of care. In a Life Plan Community, you move in while you are healthy and able to live independently, and then access services and home health as you need them in the future. Also, the majority of Life Plan Communities are non-profit, 501c3 organizations versus the traditional, for-profit rental or assisted living model.
