  • Q:

    Is Ann’s Choice a continuing care retirement community? Why does it matter?

    Yes, Ann’s Choice is a continuing care retirement community. We feature several levels of more advanced care on-site, along with traditional independent living. It matters because you won't have to leave the community should you ever require additional care.

  • Q:

    Do I have to live at Ann’s Choice already to come to the Continuing Care neighborhood?

    Not at all. Any qualified person age 62 or older can come to Ann's Choice for personal care or long-term care as well as temporary care such as short-term rehabilitation or respite care.

  • Q:

    What's the difference between continuing care and independent living?

    With independent living, you'll keep enjoying the independent life you're used to—just without the hassle of repairs and yard work. As a continuing care retirement community or CCRC, we also offer a neighborhood located on our Bucks County campus that provides personal care, short-term rehabilitation, respite care and long-term care. Most independent living residents never need our Continuing Care neighborhood—but it's reassuring to have it available.

  • Q:

    How do the Ann’s Choice doctors compare to the average physician?

    Many other Bucks County care centers employ part-time doctors, but our medical staff is full-time. Plus, they specialize in senior health care. Our team also includes visiting specialists.
