Continuing Care Retirement Community
- CCRCs are so named because they address the entire continuum
of care with healthy seniors moving into independent living
apartments, but having the security of knowing they can
"age in place" thanks to assisted living and skilled
nursing services on site. The number of CCRCs nationally
has risen sharply over the past 25 years from 274 in the
early 1980s to 2,240 in 2005, according to the American
Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.
When Lenbrook, a continuing care retirement
community (CCRC), opened in 1983, two-bedroom units averaged
1,000 square feet.
Now the campus, which is just five blocks
north of Phipps Plaza, is undergoing a nearly $165 million
expansion including a 25-story tower and garden apartments
ranging up to almost 3,000 square feet, plus lavish amenities
-- including a spa, a gym, four dining rooms and a movie
theater, said Martha Jane Hudnall, the marketing consultant
for the community.
Lenbrook is one of three Buckhead CCRCs either expanding
or under development.
The Magazine has ranked Atlanta among the top five places
in which to retire.
"A sophisticated metropolis with southern
charm, Atlanta offers abundant volunteer and cultural opportunities,"
the magazine said. "Retirees also appreciate the wide
range of housing options."
Completing the top five are Beacon Hill in Boston; Chandler,
Ariz.; Milwaukee, Wis.; and Portland, Ore.
"The places we chose are ahead of the
curve in providing services for empty nesters, active retirees,
and everyone in between and we're thrilled to recognize
them for their efforts," said Steve Slon, editor of
AARP The Magazine. "City living may cost a bit more,
but urban communities also deliver peak value in the form
of culture, work options, mass transit and fitness opportunities,
and this year's selections really cover the spectrum."
AARP The Magazine said its selections focus
on livable community characteristics in each location including
mass-transit systems so residents can drive less, expanded
sidewalks to encourage walking, better health care, and
a wide range of mixed use housing. These qualities attract
members of the 50-plus age group, a segment that spends
more than $2.2 trillion on goods and services each year
and is expected to grow in size by 32 percent in the next
