 An Alternative Insurance Program for Retirement Communities

Communities Advancing Retirement Excellence (CARE) is an insurance program formed by and for its members. Established in 2002, it is a financially stable alternative for the provision of insurance and risk management services for not-for-profit retirement communities in Central Pennsylvania. Workers' compensation, general and professional liability, automobile liability and physical damage coverages are underwritten in the program.

CARE is uniquely qualified to provide the protection you need. Integrating strict eligibility guidelines and exceptional insurance services with an innovative risk control program and aggressive litigation management strategies, CARE provides a comprehensive insurance program unlike the traditional insurance model.

  • CARE Fall 2012 Seminar 10/19/2012

    The CARE Fall 2012 Webinar / Seminar on October 31st will highlight communication. This program is for CARE members and invited guests. So much of what we do depends on effective communication – with coworkers, residents, families, etc. How do you address family members when discussing moving a resident to a different level of care or what do you say when a resident shows signs of reduced ability to handle driving? These real-life scenarios and other topics along with techniques and applications to help you work through them will be presented. Ann Raines, trainer and consultant, will lead presentations on active listening, using assertiveness to get results while maintaining relationships, and how to “FIRE Up” a conversation.
