A continuing care retirement community refers to a community that provides services based on the level of care needed by a resident. Someone who moves in at an Independent (IL) level is just that, independent. There is no care provided and they live as if they are in their own apartment or home. When a resident starts to require additional help with activities of daily living, such as medication management, showering, dressing, getting around the community, etc., Personal Care services (PC) are available. When a resident requires care at a higher level than Personal Care, Skilled Nursing is also available. Pricing varies by level of care and WEL location. Insurance is accepted at a Skilled Nursing level. Please contact your desired location for more detailed information.
