General Information

The National Continuing Care Residents Association (NaCCRA) is a non-profit organization of residents and prospective residents of Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). Family members of CCRC residents and others concerned for aging in America are also welcome to become NaCCRA members.

We bring people together to support programs, products, and solutions that can help seniors remain vital, vigorous, and engaged.

NaCCRA is classified by the IRS as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) corporation consistent with its commitment to education and public welfare. Donors may deduct contributions as provided in Internal Revenue Code section 170. Such contributions are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purpose if they meet the applicable provisions of sections 2055, 2106 and 2522 of the Code.

NaCCRA collaborates nationwide with residents and prospective residents of Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) and its affiliate organizations for the purpose of promoting, protecting and improving the CCRC lifestyle.


NaCCRA has no formal staff. Most of our work is done by volunteers. To save money, we work with Partners in Association Management, which has long experience in supporting groups like ours. That allows us to share administrative costs with other organizations.
