5 Reasons to Consider a CCRC

A continuing care retirement community, or CCRC, is the perfect retirement option for older adults looking to remain in the same community through different phases of the aging process. A CCRC, such as The Vista, offers access to a variety of types of housing and care services in the same community, such as assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care, to accommodate residents as they age and their needs change. In a CCRC like The Vista, everything you need is all right in one place!

  1. You’ll Enjoy a Vibrant Social Life

At a CCRC, residents are surrounded by people their own age, with many on-site activities, classes, and events where they can make new friends. Living alone as an older adult can often be isolating, but at a community like The Vista, there is always plenty to do and friendly neighbors to do it with! Enjoy a refreshing dip in the heated pool year-round, take a fitness class in the gym or practice your swing in the golf simulator, grab a bite at one of our restaurants, see a show in the Performing Arts Center, or participate in fun group activities such as Mahjong, art class, or happy hour. Our vibrant community is designed to give older adults the freedom to structure their day as they like and enjoy their favorite activities with new friends and neighbors.

  1. Your Costs Are All-Inclusive

A great perk of living in a CCRC is the ease of having all of your major living expenses included in one flat rate. Not having to calculate costs or structure and adhere to a budget is a significant convenience for older adults — which is what you want most when enjoying your relaxing retirement years! Living at The Vista is similar to an all-inclusive resort – residents enjoy a regular allowance for delicious restaurant meals, admission to exciting events, housing maintenance and repairs, security, and use of luxury amenities, such as a pool, spa, gym, and fitness classes.

  1. Your Health Care Needs Are Handled

A CCRC provides a wide continuum of care to its residents as their needs change. Residents at The Vista can seamlessly move to another community on campus that can better accommodate them if their needs change. Assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care services are all offered so that residents can move from different levels of care easily. Knowing that round-the-clock care and medical services are guaranteed for you in the future is a huge burden lifted for you and your family – your loved ones can now rest assured that you will be well taken care of through every stage of the aging process.

  1. No More Maintenance Required

Retirement is a time to relax – without the stress and hard work of home repairs! At a CCRC, home maintenance is handled by team members, so you can take it easy without worrying about climbing ladders, mowing lawns, pulling weeds, or shoveling heavy snow. When something breaks, the expense of fixing it is built right into the cost of buying into the community. You can enjoy a fully functional apartment, beautifully landscaped grounds, and clear, safe walkways without ever having to lift a finger.

  1. You Can Let Someone Else Do the Dishes

While The Vista’s apartments do feature a full gourmet kitchen to prepare your own meals if you choose, you’ll never have to cook another meal again if you don’t want to! Two full-service dining venues at The Vista offer a variety of diverse choices when you feel like letting someone else take care of the cooking and clean-up. Choose from casual fare, takeout, and fine dining, all made with locally sourced ingredients and served in an upscale yet cozy setting.
