Finest Retirement Communities

What is a continuing care retirement community?

Continuing care retirement communities are not just retirement communities — they offer a comprehensive retirement plan to each resident. Think of them as master-planned neighborhoods for people 60 and over that provide beautiful homes, convenient services and access to long-term care, if needed — the combination that allows for comfort, freedom and peace of mind.

Beautiful Homes:

The communities offer a large collection of floor plans, ranging from comfortable one-bedroom designs to spacious single-story homes. All homes come complete with high ceilings, beautiful kitchens and baths, and modern appliances.

Convenient Services:

Along with their new homes, residents enjoy a package of services and amenities designed to make life easy (housekeeping, landscaping, home maintenance, etc.) and enjoyable (fine dining, theaters, health day spa, etc.).

Long-Term Care:

If they ever require a higher level of assistance or care, each resident at the communities receives unlimited access to long-term nursing care, assisted living and memory support, with essentially no cost increase. Having this comprehensive plan in place means no worrying about future care burdens for themselves or their families.
