What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

The CCRC concept offers a unique combination of independence and security of lifestyle within a socially active and supportive community. The result is that older people are able to continue to live in a home of their own, supported by a comprehensive and flexible network of personal care services and activities. Research has shown that physical and mental activity is vital to a happy and fulfilling later life.

The proposed community English Care Villages is offering at Cirencester will be committed to creating an environment where life revolves around close and continuing contact with staff, other residents and friends.

This means a better quality of life and minimising loneliness, helplessness and boredom which accounts for much of the suffering of the elderly.
