Continuing Care Retirement Community

Definition of "Continuing care retirement community"

Retirement center with a focus on group living arrangements for senior citizens. The center has separate apartments for each resident as well as an on-site nursing facility. Generally, these centers are quite expensive; they require monthly fees as well as a one-time payment (entrance fee). The monthly fee entitles the inhabitant to an apartment, one to three meals a day (depending on the facility), maid service (in some facilities), medical service (if needed), and nursing home care (also, if needed).
