Where a person lives directly impacts that person's quality of life. While most older people continue to live in private homes or apartments, some older people choose to live in an organized community such as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC).

CCRC facilities can have different requirements for entry. Most typically require entering individuals to have physical and mental examinations, and they also stress the importance of having full Medicare coverage. It is important for the individual to demonstrate the ability to pay the entry and monthly fees.
