Ginger Cove, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), is home to 350 residents, offering care and services to our residents in 236 independent living apartments, 30 assisted living suites and a 61-private bedroom skilled health center. A safe haven for residents since 1988, Ginger Cove has a strong Wait List and substantial financial reserves.
Ginger Cove is owned and operated by Annapolis Life Care, Inc. (ALC), a not-for-profit corporation. It has its own elected, volunteer Board of Directors, four of whom, by charter, are residents. ALC filed its Articles of Incorporation with the office of the Department of Assessment and Taxation of Maryland on May 31, 1982. It is recognized as an organization exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and is not affiliated with, and does not receive financial support from, any religious, charitable or other nonprofit organization.
ALC has two wholly owned subsidiaries: Ginger Cove Foundation, Inc., a tax-exempt foundation formed in 2002 by ALC to engage in charitable fund-raising activities for the support of ALC, and Ginger Cove Home Health Care LLC, a limited liability company that operates a home health agency licensed by the State of Maryland.
Ginger Cove is proud to be accredited, since 2001, by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities-Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF-CCAC), a nationally respected program recognizing financially sound and well-managed retirement communities. Only 16% of retirement communities nationwide currently hold this prestigious designation. It is a mark of quality, integrity and a standard for comparison. Ginger Cove is the only CCRC in Anne Arundel County to have earned CARF-CCAC accreditation.
