Long CCRC Wait List Strategies

If your first choice CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) has a long wait list (of several years) ask if there are any small studio units available.  Often times the small size of studio units make them unpopular so the wait list, if any, for these units is small.  You might be able to work out a deal where you occupy a small studio unit until a larger unit becomes available.  This way you integrate into the campus early and have access to common areas rather then spending your wait list time outside the community.  You may be able to negotiate a good waiting position from inside the community versus waiting on the outside.
