Many people choose to move to a Life Plan Community, or Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), for the safety and security of a community lifestyle. Unlike living alone in a single-family house or apartment, living in a retirement community means you always have peace of mind, thanks to security services and the assurance of care. Springmoor offers multiple security services, including 24-hour emergency call service and around-the-clock security staff, as well as a full continuum of healthcare services.
