Continuing Care Retirement Community. There are three different types of residency contracts within a CCRC that exist (A, B & C). The “Type A” is the most exclusive and provides the highest level of protection and is what Buena Vida Estates offers. A “Type A” contract provides a contractual commitment to care and services over one’s lifetime. This includes guaranteed access to assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing care. In addition, “Type A” provides financial protection should someone deplete their assets (beyond their control). This level of protection assures residents the peace of mind of knowing that they are safe and financially secure during their lifetime.
