NORC is short for Naturally Occurring Retirement Community, a comprehensive supportive service program for seniors.  Typically, aging men and women need help getting quality care and support.  NORCs help older community members by providing them with a wide range of such services, from nursing and social work home visits, to assistance in obtaining home repairs and maintenance.
