Redding, CT (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
For seniors seeking to live in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) anywhere in the United States, a new searchable online directory is now available to help. Today the Retirement Living Information Center has just launched a new CCRC Directory section within its popular web site, RetirementLiving.com.
The new CCRC directory enables one to search for a community either by state and city or state and county. It makes it very easy to find a CCRC anywhere in the United States. The search results provide the name of the community, a web link, address, phone number, and whether it is accredited or not.
“It is the most complete CCRC directory on the Internet,” states company president, Tom Wetzel.
The directory contains information on nearly 2,000 U.S. communities. It also identifies about 300 that have been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, known as CARF International.
The new CCRC directory joins a family of other premium services available on RetirementLiving.com that require a nominal membership fee of $24.95 -- a one-time charge that provides access forever. Membership benefits include access to the company’s famous “Great Places to Retire,” which has in-depth reports on 210 retirement destinations in 33 states, and access to the searchable Active Retirement Community Directory which lists nearly 1,800 active living (age 55-plus) communities.
What is a CCRC: Continuing Care Retirement Communities offer residents a lifestyle continuum, starting with independent living and progressing through assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and nursing care, depending on what type of service is ultimately needed.
What is CARF: CARF is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services that operates in 17 countries on five continents. Accreditation by CARF is a sign of quality services and is an important consideration in any decision making process. The value of accreditation goes beyond a competitive distinction for continuing care service providers and provides a framework for continuous quality improvement.
About RLIC: RetirementLiving.com, operated by the Retirement Living Information Center, is an award-winning web site that helps seniors find places to live in retirement. The site also offers an array of valuable information to assist seniors in planning for an enjoyable retirement.
