When choosing a senior living place to call home as an aging adult, it is important to consider a number of factors about the organization beyond the living accommodations and amenities that meet your needs. When you’re investing money and your valued time in a senior residence, you should ensure that it is a reputable organization with a strong foundation, proven credentials, and respectable leaders who are impacting your well-being. Fellowship Square Mesa (our East Valley senior living campus) has a strong history of caring excellence dating back to 1998.
Fellowship Square Mesa is one of six campuses that offer exceptional senior living and support services by the not-for-profit Christian Care organization. Founded in 1979, our overarching organization recognized an opportunity to minister care to Arizona seniors—particularly those with little financial resources—and has been dedicated ever since to providing residents with a fulfilling, independent lifestyle in a caring community. The Christian Care organization is currently the largest provider of non-profit senior housing and healthcare services in Arizona; plus, it has ranked as the eighth fastest growing non-profit senior living organization in the Nation since 1990.
The Christian Care leaders and caregivers involved throughout its properties joyfully serve each and every senior with humility, integrity, compassion, and respect. At Fellowship Square Mesa, we could not ask for a more dedicated and experienced guide leading our campus care than our Executive Director, Jon Scott Williams. Mr. Williams is a Certified Aging Services Professional (C.A.S.P.) and Certified Assisted Living Facility Manager who began impacting our Mesa campus in 1997, before its official opening, and continues to lead our innovative, resort-style senior living options to new heights of hospitable care.
Over time we have experienced much growth since our initial Independent Living accommodations on campus started in 1998. Our ALTCS Assisted Living services were added in 2001, as well as the Reflections Memory Care living option in 2015. The foundational senior services we provide have been enhanced over time by the strategic use of technology to better the lives of our residents, including the implementation of campus-wide closed circuit TV and Wi-Fi, safe and secure keyless entry using a fob, a new fitness and wellness center steeped in technological advancements, the Resident Portal that provides an interactive and secure communication system, and the proprietary Alexa Community developed in partnership with Amazon’s Alexa Smart Properties. This growth and innovation at Fellowship Square Mesa has not gone unnoticed, as we’ve received many accolades throughout the years in addition to the following few examples: the “Best Practices Award for Improving the Quality of Service in Long-Term Care,” the “Excellence in Business Award” from the City of Mesa, the “Innovation in Technology Award” and “Excellence in Service Award” multiple times from Leading Age Arizona, and SRP’s Champions of Energy Efficiency Award for Excellence in Innovation.
