The California Continuing Care Residents Association (CALCRA) is the voice of the more than 25,000 Californians who live in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). We advocate on behalf of our members and all CCRC residents throughout the state to ensure their quality of life and financial security. We are the only organization whose sole purpose is representing CCRC residents.

What is a CCRC? Continuing Care Retirement Communities are retirement communities offering a continuum of care for residents. Independent living, assisted living, and nursing home care are all usually available within a single campus, allowing individuals or couples to have appropriate support to age in place as their needs change.
