Readers, I have a favor to ask of you.

I spend a lot of time looking at Disclosure Statements for senior housing communities, and most people don’t know just how difficult it is to get one of these statements.  Since some retirement communities view me as “an enemy,” they will not share any of their information with me.  Instead, I often have to submit freedom of information requests with the states in which CCRCs are located.  This is a costly and time-consuming process.  It can take months to receive documents, and I have spent hundreds of dollars in copying and postage fees.

That’s where you come in.

As a senior or a family member, CCRCs should be giving you their Disclosure Statement as part of the marketing routine.  They should also give you a full copy of their Resident Agreement.

If you’re so inclined, please send me a copy of the Disclosure Statement and/or Resident Agreement for CCRCs in your area.  You can email it to me ( or mail it to the address below.  Anyone who sends me documents will get a free print copy of my book, “Continuing Care Retirement Communities: An Insider Tells All.” If you send me documents for 3, or more communities, I’ll send you all three of my books.

Your contribution will be included in my research and help future seniors and their families make a more informed decision regarding their move into a CCRC.
