Frequently Asked Questions

Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), unlike many senior living communities, 55+ developments and independent living high-rises, offer a comprehensive range of long-term care services, from assisted living and memory support to licensed skilled nursing care. These services are available both short- and long-term, as needed.

Not-for-profit communities, such as The Amsterdam, manage their financial resources in accordance with their mission. Long-standing values are reflected in governance and management.

Benefits of a not-for-profit community include:

  • All profits are reinvested into the community
  • Continuous ownership by the same organization
  • No profit motive to raise monthly fees
  • Lower operating costs
  • Direction by a dedicated board of trustees
  • Foundation can provide support to residents who outlive their financial resources

Most continuing care retirement communities offer health care services for a predictable fee. Life care at The Amsterdam goes a step further by providing short- or long-term care for exactly the same monthly fee you pay in independent living. What’s more, this fee is typically less than market rates for care.

The Amsterdam gives residents the opportunity to join committees focused on different aspects of community life, and to participate on the community’s Resident Council, something only the best senior living communities offer.
