What is a Continuing Care
Retirement Community (CCRC)?
It is the type of community that provides
a continuum of care, including independent living, assisted
living, and skilled nursing care, all at one site.
What are the advantages
of choosing a CCRC?
Regardless of the level at which you enter,
you will never have to worry about moving to another kind
of facility to receive a different level of care if your
medical condition changes. CCRC's are sometimes called "life-care
communities." They offer great peace of mind to you and
your family members.
Why is CCAC accreditation
CCAC accreditation is widely regarded as
a mark of quality for retirement communities because the
standards to receive this accreditation are so high, and
the self-study and review process are so rigorous. The CCAC
is the nation's only system for accrediting continuing care
I'm looking for an assisted
living community. Can I move into Roland Park Place at this
Yes. When RPP received its license for 41
Residential Care (Assisted Living) apartments from the Maryland
State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's Office of
Health Care Quality in August 1999, we opened this level
of care to our own residents (who have priority to move
into these apartments) as well as to people from the outside.
What are the admission
requirements for Residential Care (Assisted Living)?
Applicants must be at least 60-years old,
be medically approved for Assisted Living, and meet financial
requirements as approved by the Board of Directors. A one-time entrance fee is due under The Traditional, 60-month declining balance, Residence and Care Agreement. A monthly service fee is required for all residents.
Is part of the monthly
service fee for all contracts tax deductible?
Yes. Because the type of contracts we offer
as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (traditional and
refund option) are designed for self-insured long term nursing
care, the cost of health care is spread among all the residents.
A percentage of the monthly fees are tax deductible medical

Is the accommodation fee

Plan), 90% of your accommodation fee is refundable. You

"declining balance" plan), where your accommodation fee
is refundable on a prorated basis for five years. For details
of both plans, please call our Marketing Department at 410-243-5700.
Is there a waiting list
Yes, we have a waiting list of people who
have paid a refundable fee. If you are on the waiting list,
you will receive priority consideration for apartments as
they become available, according to where your name is on
the list. Some locations and models are very desirable,
and we advise people to join the waiting list to improve
their chances of getting the apartment they want when they
are ready to move.
Is Roland Park Place affiliated
with a religious organization?
No, Roland Park Place is non-denominational.
Although the community was founded by a coalition of Lutheran
organizations, it became a member-owned, independent corporation
in 1993. Our population represents diverse faiths and religious
