Legislation: During its first year, WACCRA worked on legislation that would address the needs of CCRC residents; legislation that was missing prior to our work. Read more about our Continuing Care Retirement Community Law on this Legislation page.
Leadership: We have taken the lead in bringing together groups who advocate, as do we, for the good life for CCRC residents. We have shown that we can make a difference outside the legislative arena too, as we participate with other groups that share some of our goals. Examples of our partner groups are the Office of the Long-Term Care Ombuds, the Presidents’ Roundtable (the leaders of CCRC Resident Councils), LeadingAge Washington, and CCRC management teams. Our work with LeadingAge and CCRC management has resulted in the “Commitment to CCRC Practices” document, signed by the Executive Directors of all 23 CCRCs in Washington State. We are particularly proud of this accomplishment.
Consumer Guide: The third edition of this guide, published in 2021, provides valuable information about the CCRC (Life Plan Community) lifestyle. Contact information for all 23 CCRCs in WA State is included. It is an essential resource for those contemplating moving to a CCRC or moving parents, grandparents or other loved ones to a CCRC. Download this guide free of charge.
