A Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC, is an age-restricted, amenity-rich place where you live independently with additional services available should the need for care arise. In plain terms, CCRCs are retirement living communities with an important added benefit: lifetime care.

When you choose an independent living option, you will likely pay an entrance fee, which also is considered an investment because most CCRCs allow you, your estate, and/or your family to gain back a large percentage of this fee as a refund (at Eisenach Village it’s at least 80%, depending on the contract). You will also pay a monthly fee that covers home maintenance and services.
