Life Plan Community: The New Name for CCRCs
November 6, 2015 | Aging Services Risk, Quality, & Safety Guidance
"Life plan community" is the new name for continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), LeadingAge announced in an October 30, 2015, post. The name is the result of a two-year process led by LeadingAge and Mather LifeWays and involving a consumer research firm and four marketing firms. A new website, lifeplancommunity.org, offers more information about the change, including the research process. The task force gleaned feedback from industry leaders, CCRC residents and prospective residents, and the general population.
