Yes it is. DW's parents are at an Erickson facility. It is independent from the development component of Erickson that is in chapter 11 but if the recession keeps new clients from joining things could eventually go south. For now they say they are fine but what would they say if they weren't?

Yep, sobering issues. My parents were in a continuing care community before they died and my father-in-law is in one now. Fortunately, he has the financial resources to cover any new fees or increases in monthly charges. At least in his community, most of the residents are quite old and in frail health, so they are not really worried about the long term trends. Sad.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
