Searching for a retirement community can be an overwhelming process. There are many aspects to consider, and each individual's journey is slightly different. However, on this page, you will find a collection of some of the more frequently asked questions we receive from seniors and their families.

Fellowship Square Phoenix is part of Christian Care Companies.
Christian Care was founded in 1979 by a group of devoted Christians who recognized an opportunity to minister to Arizona seniors by offering affordable nursing care. Realizing this need, they formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and named it Christian Care.
Christian Care Health Center was the first to open its doors in 1980. The Phoenix campus continued to grow, ultimately providing a full continuum of senior living options: independent living, assisted living, subsidized senior housing, skilled nursing, memory care, and healthcare services.
Today, Christian Care operates six retirement communities across the state of Arizona: Cottonwood, Historic Mesa, Phoenix, Mesa, Surprise, and Tucson.
Assisted Living is ideal for those who need more support in their day-to-day lives but who do not require the 24-hour skilled nursing care found in nursing centers. Residents receive increased assistance with their activities of daily living and a higher level of care than what is available in Independent Living.
The Oasis Assisted Living & Christian Care Manor II provides three levels of Assisted Living services: Supervisory, Personal, and Direct Care. In Christian Care Manor II, we accept ALTCS benefits as well as private pay.

Absolutely, we are a pet-friendly retirement community!
In Independent Living, we allow one pet per apartment (30 pounds or less), a non-refundable pet fee will apply. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in Assisted Living. However, leashed visitors are welcome.
This is a concern for many seniors when considering a move to a retirement community. They worry that they will be giving up their freedom - will be limited by rules and restrictions, or will be required to participate in activities. In fact, the opposite is true.
Our residents find that the convenience and support of available services allow them greater independence and freedom. Services such as housekeeping, transportation, and maintenance relieve them of a 'to-do' list, so they have more time to enjoy the things they want to do. Fellowship Square's Activities Team is truly dedicated to keeping our activities calendar fresh and inspiring.
Our residents feel encouraged to be themselves and enjoy each day as they choose. Whether they spend the day at home reading a good book or filling their day with planned activities, it's their call.
When seniors begin thinking about making a move into senior living, the cost is undoubtedly one of the first questions that come to mind.
When comparing the monthly rent in a retirement community to the cost of your current living situation, it’s essential to consider the added value of all the services and amenities included. At most senior living communities, monthly rent covers maintenance, landscaping, and housekeeping services.
At Christian Care/Fellowship Square Phoenix, we have several senior living options to meet a variety of budgets and needs. To learn more about these options, the costs involved, and financial assistance, please select one of the options below.
Our Board of Directors and Organizational Leadership consider many factors when making this decision, including overhead expenses, capital expenditures, government mandates, market conditions, and affordability. They are fully committed to our organization's Mission, Vision, and Values – and include all three in the framework of their analysis.
