As the older population increases in the United States, more and more congregate living options are emerging, particularly for persons who may need some combination of housing with social support and health care services readily accessible. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) are one such option. This chapter focuses on CCRCs in the U.S., which typically offer escalating levels of care on a single campus, from independent housing, through residential care facilities, to nursing homes.
