Common Questions about The Crossings
Questions about continuing care, Life Care or our independent living lifestyle? Our answers to commonly asked questions are here for your convenience. And if what you want to know isn't covered, contact us, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
What is a CCRC?
A CCRC is a Continuing Care Retirement Community. CCRCs offer residents an enriched living situation where individuals can move from independent living into various levels of health care, as needed. Residents have access to assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing, which is typically provided under the same roof or on the same campus, often at discounted rates. Usually, CCRCs require an entrance fee plus monthly maintenance fees in exchange for a residence, meals and various other services.
What is a Life Care community? How is it different from a CCRC?
Of the many CCRCs available today, some are also Life Care communities. These communities offer independent living residents health care coverage for life on site, with little or no increase in the monthly service fee. For example, an independent living couple at Woodland Creek at The Crossings will find that Life Care provides skilled nursing for the ill partner, while keeping the other partner in the couple's Woodland Creek independent living residence for little to no increase in fees. Life Care at Woodland Creek is financial protection, and residents get a lifetime of predictable monthly expenses and guaranteed priority access to on-site assisted living, skilled nursing care and memory support. At The Crossings, independent living residents with Life Care can count on the estate protection of a 90% refundable entrance fee.
Can you tell me about the health care options at your community?
