As the Baby Boomer generation reaches its senior years, a rising category of luxury Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CRCC) is drawing residents.

These facilities offer services ranging from independent living all the way through failing health. According to the New York Times, the growing industry estimates that 20 percent of baby boomers, or about 15 million people, have saved enough to afford private continuing care. Benefits can include access to a community, as well as high-end resort-style amenities.
