What's a CCRC?

Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) are residential campuses that provide a continuum of care from independent living cottages or apartments to assisted living and skilled nursing care, all in one location. CCRC’s are designed to offer active seniors an independent lifestyle in the privacy of their “own home” with the availability of health related services if necessary. The emphasis of a CCRC is to enable people to “age in place” and avoid having to move to another location if their needs change.

CCRCs are highly regulated in most states, including New York. Good Shepherd Village has the distinction of being the first Fee for Service Continuing Care Retirement Community licensed by the Department of Health in New York. Residents pay a one time entrance fee, and then monthly fees which cover a broad range of services. The entry fee ensures life long residency in the most appropriate setting according to your needs. Assisted living and skilled nursing care are provided on a “fee for service” basis, meaning residents pay only for the care they need, when they need it.

At Good Shepherd Village, if you leave for any reason, 90% of your entry fee is refunded to you or to your estate.
