Feasibility of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)
in Greenbrier County
A CCRC offers the entire residential continuum for the next portion of the retired person’s life–from active independence in a cottage or apartment to assisted living studios to round-the-clock skilled nursing services in private rooms–all on one campus. A CCRC offers its residents the opportunity to add “life to their years” by providing:
Freedom from Household Tasks & Maintenance
Social, Fitness and Discovery Opportunities
Safety, Security, Health Care and Peace of Mind
Seamless transition in needed living arrangements
Local CCRC residents often contribute greatly to the community by volunteering and serving on local boards. Many seniors also have the resources to provide financial support to cultural, education and civic programs. A CCRC in Greenbrier County would provide seniors an opportunity to remain here and continue their involvement rather than moving to a CCRC in another location. Seniors who have children or grandchildren in Greenbrier County would have the opportunity to live near them and enjoy this special place. A CCRC would also create jobs and provide professional training for its staff. These communities range in size from 100 to 500 units. The fee structure for entrance to the CCRC will be determined by the feasibility studies conducted.
The next step in developing a CCRC is to have a Preliminary Market Assessment by a consulting firm to determine if Greenbrier County is a viable location. This would be the first of three phases of analysis. This initial phase will cost approximately $20,000.
The Greater Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation has offered to establish a temporary, pass through account to hold the funds contributed to meet this cost. All donations over $100 would be properly acknowledged for tax purposes.
