A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) provides all of the living and healthcare needs for a lifetime on a single campus. Penney Retirement Community is a CCRC because we offer a tiered approach for residents that includes independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and Alzheimers and dementia care. As residents’ needs change, they can move from a detached single family home to apartments with assisted living. Later, if more assistance is needed, residents can move into the skilled nursing center or Alzheimer’s Care center.
A CCRC can provide added comfort to spouses and families, because they know that all their loved one’s needs will be provided without having to relocate. This allows spouses to remain together, even when one spouse needs additional care. A CCRC offers residents with the option of remaining in one community, surrounded by friends, for the duration of their life.
