Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A Continuing Care Retirement Community (often referred to as a CCRC) is part housing for residents, part cultural center and part healthcare provider. These combined services allow residents to live as independently as desired. A CCRC differs from other retirement options in that it provides a continuum of housing, services, and healthcare. A written agreement between the resident and the CCRC is generally intended to last the resident’s lifetime in a secure community environment. Non-profits are mission-driven, with their resources invested back into the community.

Elim Park Place is a not-for-profit, interdenominational, nationally accredited continuing care retirement community (CCRC) located in the historic town of Cheshire, Connecticut. Designed to serve people 62 years and better, Elim Park has earned its outstanding reputation by adhering to and setting very high standards for quality health care, housing and services. Post-Acute Care and Rehabilitation Services are also available for adults of all ages in our Health Care Center.

Nonprofit CCRCs have a rich history of serving older adults, often with innovative approaches to managing the care of the people they serve. Nonprofit communities encourage residents to be as active and independent as possible. They also recognize that services should be tailored to individual needs and made available in a “continuum”—including choices in wellness programs, housing, support services, in-home care, and nursing and medical care.

Assisted Living is a program that provides and/or arranges for the provision of daily meals, personal and other supportive services, health care and 24-hour oversight to persons living in a group residential facility who need assistance with activities of daily living.
