Some other kind of home care can be chanced upon the continuing-care retirement community (CCRC). These communities give a long-term contract for guaranteed continuity of services, housing, and nursing care in a single location. Services might include meals, housekeeping, recreation, transportation, health care, emergency help, and assisted living (help with bathing and dressing). Some may even offer optional services such as senior dating services. The advantage of a continuing-care community is that, if you turn ill when you join the community and need additional help, you never have to move to another community to get what you need.
