My in-laws have lived in an independent-living condo on the grounds of a CCR for 15 years and have adjusted well. FIL is more satisfied than MIL, though, I suspect. The location is far from family and she is not fond of the weather; he, OTOH, loooooves the weather. It is expensive, but if they run out of money, they will still live there even if they need hospital or nursing home care. It's all there. I think it was very thoughtful of them to do this. They said they did it so that none of the children would have the burden of caring for them.

ChiliSpouse and I likely will consider one of these in the next 20-25 years.
