La Posada Plans Oro Valley Senior Living Community

La Posada is in the planning stages of an innovative senior community on 80 acres in Oro Valley. The name chosen is Nakoma Sky – a name borrowed from Native American culture meaning “I do as I promise.” It will take shape within the rolling property off North Oracle Road at the corner of East Naranja Road and North 1st Avenue.

Drawing from decades of experience of providing high-quality senior living at La Posada, the new community will have breathtaking mountain views, beautiful apartment homes and innovative services, as part of a distinctive campus that includes independent living, assisted living, memory care and enhanced assisted living.
