The Decision to Move to a Continuing Care Retirement Community

The Decision to Move to a Continuing Care Retirement Community The research examined factors related to the decision to move to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Employing a sample obtained from a recently opened comprehensive CCRC, 184 residents and 246 waiting list respondents were surveyed concerning their decision to move. Residents evidenced significantly more "risk" factors than waiting list applicants and reported significantly more reasons for selecting a CCRC. Reasons for choosing a CCRC were guaranteed health care, freedom from home maintenance, and supportive services. The vulnerability of residents requires careful attention for planning and managing services to maintain independence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aging and Environment Taylor & Francis
