What is PARCR?

The Pennsylvania Alliance of Retirement Community Residents (PARCR) is an organization of residents of not-for-profit retirement communities involved in the governance of their own communities.

PARCR represents twenty-seven (27) retirement communities located in South Eastern Pennsylvania. Each community designates three voting representatives from their resident council to serve as the llaison between their council and the organization. In addition, there are "individual members" from the member communities who take an active role. PARCR meets quarterly in a different member community each time.

The mission of PARCR is 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 and to encourage members to seek to be a part of informed decision-making in their communities.

PARCR works closely with LeadingAge PA, the National Continuing Care Retirement Association (NaCCRA), and LeadingAge USA. While not a political organization, PARCR advocates vigorously in support of issues related to seniors.
