Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of a CCRC?

CCRC stands for Continuing Care Retirement Community. In compliance with California Law, a CCRC may offer assisted living, or may offer assisted living with a skilled nursing facility onsite or nearby. Ideally, it also includes residential apartments. The most complete and efficient CCRCs, like Hollenbeck Palms, offer all three levels of senior living on a single campus — in our case, an eight-acre garden oasis. Qualifying as a CCRC with the State of California is very challenging. Hollenbeck is proud to be one of just a handful in LA County that offer this distinctive level of service. Few life experiences are more stressful than leaving a familiar home and directly entering a nursing facility full of strangers when you’re at your most vulnerable. You can spare yourself or a loved one this distress by planning the future at a first-class CCRC like Hollenbeck Palms. Living in a Hollenbeck residential apartment, it’s easy to get to know residents and staff throughout The Palms. If additional care becomes appropriate, you or your loved one can maintain the familiarity and comfort with staff and caregivers, and make the transition surrounded by a circle of friends.

Why should I make a change when I'm healthy and active?

Making a major life change when you are healthy and active allows you to “Drive the Bus” –- not someone else. We hear it time and time again, “If only I had come to Hollenbeck Palms sooner. I don’t know what I was waiting for.” Making your move sooner rather than later enables you to secure an apartment you will prefer, start making new life-long friends, become familiar and confident in Hollenbeck Palms’ excellent staff, and to create a daily routine that is not only enjoyable but well suited to your long term interests and goals. If the time comes when you need additional care, you’re already prepared and know where you will be. This thought alone provides our residents with great peace of mind.
