Oak Hammock is a university-affiliated Life Plan Community (formerly known as a Continuing Care Community, or CCRC) for adults age 55 and older located in Gainesville, Florida. Life Plan Community is a term used to describe planned residential communities offering several levels of health care services, in addition to housing options, social and recreational services. Most Life Plan Communities also require an entrance fee and ongoing monthly fee for services and amenities and provide access to various types of care on either an a la carte, discounted or a pre-paid fee basis.
Oak Hammock has evolved the “continuing care retirement community” concept into a forward-thinking, advanced approach for the older adult lifestyle – creating an environment for lifelong learning, optimum health and fitness, creativity and personal growth. In addition to an upscale lifestyle and an impressive range of amenities, Oak Hammock offers comprehensive Life Care contracts that significantly reduce the costs of long-term care for residents.
