BH-7000.5100-330Independent Living Communities/Complexes Definition
Residential facilities, apartments and/or planned communities for older adults, people with disabilities or other populations that are available at market rates and designed to enable those who are eligible to have a form of independent living in a secure environment while sharing common interests and having access to supportive services and a range of activities designed to promote social contact among residents. Occupancy by families with children may be discouraged. Housing varies widely from simple apartments to high rise condominiums to single family detached housing to housing in a congregate setting; and units may be available on a purchase or rental basis. Support usually consists of "convenience services" which may include an on-site activities program, transportation, housekeeping and meals in a communal dining room. Residents who require additional support need to make their own arrangements for personal care, home health care or other in-home services. These facilities generally require no licensing.
BH-8400.6000-150Continuing Care Retirement Communities Definition
Residential facilities, usually licensed by the state, which combine all three levels of care (independent living, assisted living and nursing home care) in a single setting. CCRCs offer older adults long-term contracts which guarantee a place to live and access to specified personal and health care services. Residences may be apartments, townhouses, duplexes, clusters or single family homes and offer differing arrays of service, usually including a common dining room, exercise and activity areas, outdoor recreation and swimming pools. New residents are expected to move into the community when they are healthy and able to maintain an independent lifestyle, and may be asked to pay a sizable entry fee plus monthly maintenance fees, may have the option of a month to month rental arrangement or may purchase and develop equity in the property. Depending on the contract, specified health services may be covered by the entry fee, may be included in the maintenance fees or may be paid for at the time of need. The monthly fee also covers meals, housekeeping, linen and personal laundry, utilities and other basic services.
YB-8000Older Adults Definition
