he concept of continuing retirement communities (CCRCs) is a growing national trend in retirement living. Evolving from Quaker models developed in Philadelphia more than 25 years ago, a CCRC is a residential community designed for adults over a specific age. Residents select an individual residence from a variety of floor plans that may range from small apartments to spacious cottages, and the community's management typically provides home and property maintenance, housekeeping and laundry services, dining options, transportation and other benefits, as well as cultural, educational and recreational opportunities.

Most importantly, progressive levels of health care are available conveniently within the community – including wellness care, assisted living and skilled nursing to accommodate aging in place. Once a person is accepted as a resident, most CCRCs guarantee residents will never be asked to leave for lack of financial resources. These well-planned communities enable residents to enjoy retirement knowing their residential, medical, and financial futures are secure.

Planning Ahead for Changing Needs

In many circumstances, an unforeseen change in health means you must abruptly uproot yourself and leave your friends, and perhaps your spouse, behind. At The Garlands, we've planned the community with today's – and tomorrow's – needs in mind. Because aging is a natural part of life, we're committed to providing progressive levels of care right within the community.

As a CCRC, The Garlands will provide an on-site wellness clinic with proactive wellness programs, assisted living apartments and a skilled nursing center with private suites and a special memory loss care center. Residents can enjoy life with the security of knowing decisions about future care have been made. Further, The Garlands will have a medical concierge on staff who can work with you, your doctors, and your family to coordinate care and communication.
