How to use "Continuing-care communities" in context?
A Continuing-Care Community (CCC) is a type of long-term care facility that provides assisted living, retirement living, and health and wellness services. CCCs are designed to provide continuity of services to residents and their families, while providing a sense ofcommunity.
There are two types of CCCs: independent and affiliated. Independent CCCs are run by the individual facility and are not affiliated with any other CCCs. Affiliated CCCs are composed of two or more independent CCCs that have formed a collective relationship. This allows for economies of scale and joint marketing efforts.
