Independent Living Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CCRC?
A continuing care retirement community (CCRC), sometimes called a Life Plan Community, offers independent living plus access to a continuum of care, if ever needed. As an independent living resident, you live in your own maintenance-free apartment or cottage. Repairs and grounds keeping are all included. In addition, residents enjoy delicious chef-prepared meals in the community’s dining venues or can cook their own meals in their independent living residence. Should the need arise, residents typically have priority access to short-term rehabilitation and therapy services, assisted living and skilled nursing on-site. Memory care may also be provided at some communities.
How do I choose an apartment or cottage?
Is there a wait list?
Yes, normally there is a waiting period for existing residences to become available. Our Future Resident Program gets your name on the list so we can let you know when your preferred residence becomes available. To learn how to be added to our wait list, contact our marketing department at 919-234-7828.

Absolutely! Your furry friend is a part of your family and welcomed by the Croasdaile Village community. With acres to explore, trails to hike, and a dog park to romp in, we’re very pet-friendly. Contact us for more information.
Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept direct admissions to assisted living?
Yes, we accept direct admissions. However, independent living residents at Croasdaile Village have priority for admission to assisted living. For more information, please contact Assisted Living Administrator Deon Simpson at 919-617-7453.
Is memory care available at Croasdaile Village?
A dedicated memory support neighborhood called The Magnolia will be opening soon within the assisted living building. The Magnolia will offer a safe, supportive setting with private bedrooms, open kitchen dining space, secure courtyard, and life-enriching activities.
Are home health services available through Croasdaile Village?
Yes, independent living residents can request home health services and more through our Home Care Program. Applicable charges will apply. For more information, please contact the front desk.
What if my loved one needs more than what’s provided in assisted living?
At Croasdaile Village, we offer continuing care. In addition to assisted living, we provide memory support, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. These levels of living provide around-the-clock care for residents recovering from illness or injury, or those needing more long-term care or support.
How do I talk to my parents about assisted living?
It’s best to start early before a health crisis forces the issue. Ask your loved one about their wishes, listen to their concerns, and don’t push. One of the best ways to change their views is to show them what a senior living community is really like. Schedule a visit and let them see for themselves how our supportive environment can enrich their lives.
Skilled Nursing Frequently Asked Questions
What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing is for seniors who need more care than assisted living provides but don’t need to be hospitalized. They may be recently discharged from the hospital and need post-acute care to regain strength and function. Or they may need long-term care for a chronic condition. At Croasdaile Village, we provide around-the-clock skilled nursing care at The Pavilion, our on-site health center.
