Welcome to


To educate and inform residents of not-for-profit
retirement communities in Pennsylvania by promoting
the exchange of ideas, education, and civic
responsibilities of residents;

To encourage members to seek to be a part of informed
decision-making in their community.


PARCR provides relevant and timely information that is valuable to residents of retirement communities.  Our primary communications vehicle is our Quarterly Meetings, held either at a member retirement community, or virtually as needed.  The meetings feature speakers that address vital topics for seniors such as personal and cyber security, dealing with health issues such as stroke and dementia, Social Security, and industry trends in senior living.

Quarterly reporting of information relevant
to seniors



PARCR currently serves over twenty not-for-profit retirement communities located in Pennsylvania. Member communities designate three delegates from their resident council or association to serve as liaisons between PARCR and their community.  Membership is also open to individual community members who are interested in taking an active role in the organization.
