Retirees who are seeking a living environment that is secure, comfortable, and attractive, that will continue to meet their needs as they grow older, are finding more and more options available to them.You can know about senior apartments,retirement community at Willamette Oaks,Eugene, Oregon .

CCRCs are self-contained communities that offer a range of living options, from houses and townhouses in which seniors live completely independently, to areas providing assisted living and yet other areas providing skilled nursing care.

Typically, a senior moving into a CCRC must be in reasonably good health and is expected, at first, to live independently. As the resident's needs change over the years, he or she would then move to other areas of the CCRC that offer more care as necessary.

Because these services are all typically included in the original contract, the senior or family members are not faced with sudden decisions during a health emergency; the CCRC will make adjustments to the resident's living situation and automatically provide the needed care. And because the costs are all agreed to beforehand, there are no sudden financial crises either.

CCRCs are generally designed as campus like environments, with a community center and various other amenities on-site, such as exercise equipment, hair salons, cafeterias, and hobby shops. Most routinely arrange programs and group activities, encouraging a sense of community.

And most offer transportation to events and facilities in the surrounding community  concerts, sporting events, shopping, and more. There is no obligation on the part of residents to participate in any of these activities, but the option is always there.
