Continuing Care Retirement Communities in Kansas City

A continuing care retirement community (CCRC) is an option that offers all levels of care under one roof or in a campus setting—independent living, assisted living, and long-term care. Some offer memory care, and some do not. As seniors age, their physical abilities and cognitive capacity can quickly change, requiring more hands-on services such as medical attention and memory care. At a CCRC, your loved one can age gracefully, knowing that their needs are met and they don’t have to worry about moving from one community to another. 

CCRCs are designed to simplify the aging process, allowing seniors to move from one level of care to another without physically uprooting from community to community. Your elderly loved ones will find peace of mind living in a campus-style community where all their medical needs can be met while staying social and active. In a community as advanced as CCRCs, retirees can participate in various activities that improve their mental, physical, and social capabilities.

A continuing care retirement community is by far the most complex community to choose from because of the many variables involved. Entrance fees vary and are based on location, size, type of residence, and care services required. Paying for a CCRC guarantees housing and medical services for the rest of your loved one's life, so up-front costs tend to be much higher than in other senior care communities. To ensure you’re making the right decision both financially and beneficially, the professionals at Senior Care Consulting are here to guide you. We’ll walk you through multiple CCRC options in your area and determine which is best for your loved one.

Frequently Asked CCRC Questions

  • What’s the Difference Between Memory Care & Assisted Living in Kansas City?
    Assisted Living is a “level of care” providing residents assistance with their activities of daily living. Memory Care is a “type of care” that can be found at various levels of care, including the Assisted Living level. The staff in Memory Care has special training to better care for residents with dementia, Alzheimer's, or another form of memory loss or cognitive impairment. A memory care community, or an Assisted Living community that has a designated Memory Care neighborhood, is likely the better option if your loved one has cognitive impairment. An assisted living community offering general care and NOT memory care is better for those who still wish to live independently but need help with daily living tasks.
  • What are the Benefits of Assisted Living?
    Your loved one can expect to receive a similar amount of care at an assisted living community as they were in their home from a caregiver, but with added benefits. These benefits include: Enhanced social life Reliable transportation Additional recreational activities Assistance with housekeeping and laundry Distribution of medication 24-hour care Doctors making house calls For a more in-depth overview of how an assisted living community can benefit your loved one, contact Senior Care Consulting at (913) 945-2800 today.
  • How Long is a Typical Assisted Living Commitment?
    Assisted living communities usually don’t require any form of commitment and operate on a month-to-month basis. Depending on the assisted living community, the terms and conditions should be expressed during your visit. Senior Care Consulting will help to answer any questions you may have before you make your final decision.
