Paying the CCRC Early
Some CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Communities also known as LifePlan communities) allow you to pay for at-home care or future care even though you do not live on the CCRC campus. Such arrangements allow you to use the common facilities (cafeteria, gym, common rooms, etc) when you visit campus and so you can join the community from afar. Sometimes this membership takes place with CCRCs that have long waiting lists. We know of one CCRC with a 10 year waiting list so long wait times do happen. Being a member of a community at a distance can still allow you to access some of the CCRC experience and make friends while setting you up to be a future resident member on campus.
