Life Plan Community vs CCRC – What’s the Difference?

Retirement communities come in all shapes and sizes, which can be confusing. It’s great to have multiple options available and knowing the differences is helpful.

Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) and life plan communities (LPCs) are the same thing. The name was changed to reflect better the lifestyle of residents, who enjoy the rich continuum of care provided.

Benefits of Life Plan Communities

Life plan communities provide lifelong care all on one campus. These include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. Respite care and rehabilitation services may also be offered for those in recovery from surgery.

LPC residents can easily move to higher levels of care, so they never need to relocate. Life plan communities provide each resident with a customized care plan that meets all needs. Specialized or additional services can be added or removed as necessary.

While mission statements and philosophy of care may vary from one facility to the next, all life plan communities provide:

  • Independent living
  • Peace of mind regarding changes in health and needs
  • Priority access to assisted living, care services, memory care, and skilled nursing
  • Maintenance-free lifestyle
  • Opportunities for lifelong learning, growth, and wellness

When planning how to spend your golden years, choose a home for life. You will enjoy an enriched, stress-free lifestyle in a community that grows with you.
