Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC’s)

The combination of Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities on a single campus is commonly known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community. The resident can take advantage of the full range of services available and the ease of transfer to a different type of facility as his or her condition and needs change; alleviating the needing to look for a new facility, relocate, or adapt to a new setting. For example, a resident may begin in the Independent Living residences, move to Assisted Living as he or she needs help with activities of daily living, and eventually move to the Skilled Nursing Facility as ongoing care becomes necessary. 

 

Independent Living

These communities are geared for the independent senior. They often offer an abundance of amenities that may include; meal plans, housekeeping services, organized social activities, wellness programs, transportation, swimming pool/spa, clubhouse, library, beauty salon/barber shop, fitness room, patrolled security, etc.

 

Assisted Living

Assisted Living centers are for people needing assistance with Activities of Daily Living. Assisted Living exists to bridge the gap between Independent Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities, whereby residents are often not able to live by themselves but do not require constant care either. The State of Arizona licenses Assisted Living in to two categories, Homes and Centers. Homes and Centers are licensed for 10 or fewer and 11 or more residents, respectively. 

 

Memory Care or Alzheimer’s Care

This type of Assisted Living provides a secure environment with staff that has additional training in the care of persons with dementia. These facilities are licensed as Directed Care by the State. 

 

Behavioral

This type of Assisted Living provides a secure environment with staff that has additional training in the care of persons with behaviors. These facilities are licensed as Directed Care by the State.

 

Rehabilitation

Licensed nursing care facilities provide the highest level of medical care for persons who are not able to perform Activities of Daily Living. Rehab is often used for acute, short stays after a hospitalization, usually under 30 days. 

 

Skilled Nursing Facilities

Licensed nursing care facilities provide the highest level of medical care for persons who are not able to perform Activities of Daily Living. They offer short term and long term care for individuals who suffer from serious or persistent health issues that are too complicated to be tended to at home or an Assisted Living Community. These licensed healthcare facilities are inspected and regulated by Arizona’s Department of Health Services.
