Continuum of Care Model
A continuing-care retirement community (CCRC) is an age-restricted community, usually requiring an entrance fee plus monthly maintenance fees in exchange for a residence, meals as well as access to long-term care. Residents of The Philadelphia Protestant Home live with the security of knowing that higher levels of medical care are available here on campus as their health needs change. Providing three different levels of care creates a ‘continuum of care’ model (independent living, personal care and skilled nursing) that offers residents the security and peace of mind of knowing that they have planned for their future by being able to stay here on campus and progress through the levels of care as their needs change with time. This continuum of care model offers a high quality of life and peace of mind. It offers security for our residents while pushing them to live better and longer with the comfort of knowing that their future needs can be addressed right here at The Philadelphia Protestant Home.
- ‘aging in place‘ greatly reduces premature decline often associated with change in living environment in advanced age
- the ability for spouses requiring different levels of care to live within close proximity
- security in knowing care needs will be met until the end of life and children will not be ‘burdened’
- greater involvement in the operational decisions made by management due to an active resident council and greater financial investment
