Customizations of Your Unit Before You Move In

Before you move into your new CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) unit it is common for the community to spend a fair amount of money cleaning, painting, and customizing your unit for you.  Making decisions on the type of kitchen cabinets, tile or carpet, paint colors, etc. may be expected of you.  Some upgrades can be done for a fee and other choices are within the standard unit overhaul budget.  CCRCs will also take this time as an opportunity to upgrade any out of date hardware items like heating and hot water units.  During this time you have an opportunity to ask for some low-cost free-bees such as a possible ceiling fan or a particular type of door hardware you really like.  Ceiling fans, in particular, are low cost and relatively easy for the CCRC maintenance department to install for you.
