Colorful Naming at a CCRC

You may find some parts of the campus of a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) have a different name from the top level community.  For example, if you live at Green Acres CCRC, you may find the assisted living building is known as "The Elms at Green Acres" or something similar.  This coloring of names makes some cut-and-dry places on campus such as assisted, nursing, or memory care sound a bit more appealing to residents or outsiders.  It is important to know about this practice, however, so you do not get confused when a colorful subsidiary name appears.
