Continuing care retirement communities have been around for decades, but in recent years they’ve become more well-known and popular.
It’s no wonder more people are considering this unique living option! Below are some of the benefits of living in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC).
Everything You Need In One Place
One of the biggest draws of a CCRC is that you have everything you need, when you need it, in one place: independent living, supportive or assisted living, and skilled nursing.
Peace Of Mind
If your health declines and you require more daily assistance, or if you become ill and need healthcare services, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have to scramble to find care or be worried that you’ll need to move to another community.
Friendships And Community
By being able to stay in one place – potentially for the rest of your life – you’ll be able to enjoy familiar surroundings, maintain your friendships, and remain a part of the same community.
More Predictable Costs
One of the greatest benefits of continuing care retirement communities is that they offer more predictable costs. While it’s impossible to predict how long you’ll live or how much healthcare you might require, it’s easy to see that an extended stay in a skilled nursing facility can drain a lifetime of savings. With a CCRC, you know the cost of your entrance fee (and how much will be returned to you or your estate if you leave or die), and the monthly costs are more predictable (typically rising incrementally, with annual cost of living adjustments).
At Lasell Village, we have independent living apartments (with full kitchens), supportive living “studios,” and a skilled nursing facility that has a 5-star rating from Medicare. We can offer you the support, services, and care you need, as you need it.

“My parents live at Lasell Village and our entire family is very pleased. We did many years of planning and research for their retirement. We considered Boston area as well as homes further south in warmer climates. We researched home care, family care, and visited multiple residential communities.
They enjoy a great deal of independence living in their own apartment while at the same time they have the benefits of additional care and services as needed. All of the amenities are designed with ease and safety in mind, and they enjoy not having to worry about maintenance or repairs.
The food is great. The staff is professional. The facilities are comprehensive. Both my parents are engaged and, despite health issues, doing quite well. As their children the village gives us a high level of confidence and ease that they are in great hands and any issues that may arise are immediately handled by professionals. I could not recommend Lasell more.”
