What are the Advantages of a CCRC

My parents have very different abilities. Both are physically fit, however my mother has glaucoma and Lewy Bodies. The combination of these is that it makes it hard for her to get around while my Dad is able to handle his affairs quite easily. My mom doesn't really need help yet with eating, dressing, bathing. Would a CCRC be a good choice?

Typically, a CCRC accommodates residents with care ranging from the lowest levels of care needed to the highest levels of care needed. The advantage of going into a CCRC early is that they become familiar with your care needs early on, and they are equipped to actively assess health-related changes and adapt a plan- of-care accordingly. For someone who does require some assistance with activities of daily living, a CCRS would be a good choice, in an anticipation of an eventual change in care needs. On that note, if your father and mother have varying degrees of care, a community such as a CCRC might be a great place to consider.
