Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs)

In the Community

Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs)

A Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC) is a community or building complex that was not originally designed for seniors, but has a large percentage of residents who are older adults. These communities were not initially created to help seniors age in place, but have evolved naturally, and provide a unique and easy way for seniors to live independently.

 

SUPPORTING OUR NEIGHBORS

JASA offers a number of quality-of-life programs to seniors living within NORCs. Our NORC programs provide a wide range of social services, educational and recreational activities, supportive counseling, assistance with securing benefits and entitlements, health-related services, and transportation to help senior residents remain at home and continue to participate in community life.

JASA's longstanding commitment to serving these unique communities enables individuals to grow older among familiar faces and surroundings.

  • Knowing that JASACare Home Care was able to provide a home care attendant for my sister, after she came home from the hospital, is the definition of peace of mind for my family.
