LCRC

A residential facility, typically for older adults, that provides several levels of supervision and access to registered health care professionals. LCRCs are typically at a location that combines independent apartments with assisted living residences and skilled nursing facilities. Residents relocate from one level of care to another, depending on their immediate needs for assistance. For example, an older woman who undergoes a knee replacement procedure may spend several weeks recuperating and undergoing rehabilitation in the nursing facility before returning to semi-independent apartment living (in which meals are provided in a common cafeteria) or to independent housing (e.g., with a healthy spouse).
