Seniors in the Tucson area and residents at Fellowship Square now have access to Assisted Living services at The Oasis, which recently opened at the Tucson campus, 8111 East Broadway.
In The Oasis Assisted Living, residents receive daily assurance checks, medication reminders, stand-by shower assistance, dressing and medication assistance, monthly vitals and weight checks and an escort to and from the dining room and campus activities. They also have access to housekeeping services, including laundry, an on-site Beauty/Barber Shop and a 24-hour emergency call system. Residents can also participate in fitness programs, chapel services and planned social activities.
Tariequa Powell LPN, Assisted Living Manager, said, "The Oasis apartments are in a beautiful setting, with most of the 52 residences opening onto a grassy courtyard with a swimming pool, a rose garden and other amenities that add to resident enjoyment of the outdoors."
Fellowship Square Executive Director George Ortega stated, "Christian Care has engaged in a systematic expansion of its communities to include Assisted Living as the number of Independent Living residents who require more care continues to grow."
"We want to provide Assisted Living services in a way that meets our residents' needs and allows them to continue to live here in our community among their friends and familiar surroundings," Ortega said.
Fellowship Square is operated by Christian Care Companies, a non-profit organization formed in 1979 by a group of caring individuals who recognized an opportunity to minister to Arizona seniors - particularly those with limited financial resources - by offering affordable assisted living and long-term care.
During the past twenty-five years, Christian Care added Assisted Living residences to their communities and has grown to five campuses throughout Arizona, making them the largest provider of senior housing in Arizona. Additionally, Ziegler Capital Markets Group ranks Christian Care as the eighth fastest growing non-profit senior living organization in the nation since 1990.
Christian Care's other Arizona campuses are in Mesa and Phoenix. Today, more than 2,100 seniors live in a Christian Care community.
Fellowship Square also offers Independent Living housing and services for those who do not require special care. For more information visit www.fellowshipsquaretucson.org or contact us at (520) 886-5537.
