Depending on your location and specific needs your options for CCRCs may vary. Since many sponsors of CCRCs include religious, fraternal and community organizations, and other companies involved with developing these retirement communities, they often imbue their philosophies and ideals within the communities. Continuing care retirement communities are retirement communities with accommodations for independent living, assisted living, and nursing home care, offering residents a continuum of care. The communities ensure a dignified place for your or your senior to stay.
Although there is no overarching federal agency that regulates retirement communities, the private non-profit organization CARF-CCAC provides a voluntary process for individual CCRCs to become accredited.

State and Federal rights are in place so you do not have to worry about your rights being violated when entering a CCRC. Although Wyoming CCRCs are the most expensive senior care option available, they are ideal for people who would like to maintain an independent lifestyle and age in place. Coupled with Wyoming’s diverse attractions and high-quality communities, your move to a CCRC can be the perfect chance to retire comfortably.
Since the goal of CCRCs is to aid residents in living independently, most communities will require a health screening in order for individuals to be admitted. Usually, an applicant's health records are required when applying for a CCRC, and unfortunately, if the applicant is deemed "too frail" then they might be denied. Residents receiving nursing home care or any other type of medical attention in Wyoming are entitled to a comprehensive and accurate record of their diagnosis and treatment. State and federal laws provide that residents have access to their records and health information, as well as the right to know when disclosures have been made. Otherwise, these records are to remain confidential for up to 7 years and can be accessed by submitting a request and providing a small fee.
