How to use "Continuingcare communities" in context?
The growing trend of continuingcare communities (CCCs) speaks to an important trend in aging and long-term care: the need for MORE options for seniors and those with disabilities. CCCs are often characterized by smaller group homes with a more specialized focus than traditional nursing homes or assisted living centers, which can offer residents more opportunities for independence.
CCCs can provide seniors with the support they need while also allowing them to live in their own communities. Residents can receive round-the-clock care and assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), as well as assistance with activities like grocery shopping and brushing their teeth.
