Resident Engagement in CCRC Life: Financial Security and Governance

The National Continuing Care Residents Association assembled a panel for the General Membership during NaCCRA's meeting held in conjunction with the LeadingAge Annual Conference in Nashville.  The meeting was open to all who wished to attend.

We are very grateful to Mr. Fred Herb of the State of Washington, who stepped in when asked to serve as videographer.  This took some courage since Mr. Herb had not previously had that office, but circumstances rendered a substitute videographer necessary.  Thank you, Fred

Reflecting the growing concern among residents about the security and provider stewardship of their entry fee invvestments, the panel focused on financial and governance matters. 

The moderator, Dan Seeger, NaCCRA President, asked the panel to consider the Bill of Rights and Model Laws in their remarks.  These initiatives could help give residents the peace of mind they seek. 

NaCCRA also applauds the recent initiative by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to consider a more principled approach to CCRC accounting as advocated by NaCCRA.  The AICPA initiative was featured in LeadingAge Panel 53C, the handouts for which can be accessed by clicking on this paragraph (See Slide #39.
