How do you financially plan to maintain your current lifestyle for the rest of your life, no matter what happens?

What are their differences in contracts and costs? What questions should smart consumers ask to determine if the community is reliable and financially solid? This workshop will cover many key questions to help you assess CCRCs. It provides an insider’s look at how to assess different CCRC types and contracts, and outlines how to evaluate financial strength.
