This business model emerged in the late 1980s as a way for well elders to access CCRC services without having to pay an apartment entry fee and move in. It has been slowly developing until today, but is still largely in the experimental phase. While seeming ideal to the older adult who wants to remain at home (and for the CCRC operator looking for additional revenue), it has more than one drawback: First, most CCRC residents who have paid a sizeable entry fee are less than enthusiastic about sharing their health services resources with 'outsiders', and many CCRC operators struggle with the profitability of offering the CCRC without walls service package.
