Making decisions for senior living can be an overwhelming process. Here, we hope to answer some of the questions you may have.
What is a CCRC or Life Plan Community?
CCRC stands for Continuing Care Retirement Community. This is also referred to as a Life Plan Community. These types of communities service multiple levels of care, including Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Nursing Care, offering residents a complete continuum of care. Good Samaritan Home is the largest, single campus, not-for-profit, CCRC in the state of Illinois. In addition to Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Intermediate & Skilled Nursing Care, we offer Shelter Care, Special Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and Short-term Rehabilitation on our campus. This type of community is beneficial because it allows you to age in place as your needs change, rather than having to look for a new facility.
What Levels of Care do you offer?
From Independent Living, Assisted Living and Nursing Care to Shelter Care, State-Certified Memory Care and Medicare-Certified Short-Term Rehabilitation, we offer a wide range of levels of senior living care services.
Independent Living is for the active senior who is still independent but doesn’t want to maintain their own home anymore. We take care of all maintenance inside and outside the cottages. The condos offer privacy and independence, without the stress of managing your own home.
Assisted Living is for the senior who needs a little extra help, but doesn’t need 24-hour nursing care. These seniors stay as self-sufficient as possible but can get help with daily tasks like housekeeping, medications, getting dressed or bathing as our staff members are just a call away.
Nursing Care has 24-hour licensed nursing care professionals for those individuals who can no longer live alone or need assistance with a skilled service like wound packing or IV Services. Our nursing care staff receive continuing education to ensure quality health care for our residents.
