A Retirement Community That Comes to You
Though some at-home programs date to the 1990s, there are still very few. Only 32, in about a dozen states, have added at-home programs. “Most people want to age successfully in place; they don’t want to transition to a community,” said Kevin Ahmadi, who heads Senior Choice at Home, connected to Gulf Coast Village, a C.C.R.C. “We assume they won’t be needing any services for at least five years,” said Cecily Laidman, executive director of Springpoint Choice. Such programs work financially, Ms. Laidman said, because many members enroll in their 70s, instead of waiting to move to a community in their 80s.
