Memory Cafe at Posada Life Community Center

An innovative approach to reducing social isolation and connecting with other family caregivers.

Memory Cafe offers attendees fun and simple activities as part of group participation. Each month attendees are offered an art experience as well as  music, games, and refreshments.

This monthly event is open to the general public.

Progress Continues On La Posada Second Campus

Progress continues on the La Posada at Pusch Ridge development, with approval received from the Town Council of Oro Valley in June of an updated Conceptual Architecture plan for the beautiful 80-acre community.  Property owned by La Posada west of North Oracle Road at First Avenue and Lambert in Oro Valley is an ideal setting for the development of another campus for Green Valley’s award-winning senior living provider.

An earlier plan for development of the Oro Valley property was put on hold mid-2018 due to critical shortages of construction sub-contractors and uncertainty of key materials.

Much of the initial site work has been completed on the 80-acre parcel. La Posada management and representatives are in ongoing contact with Town of Oro Valley officials to move the project design toward final approval for construction.  In the two years since the original project was halted, La Posada’s management team has been updating concepts to enhance the design, construction quality, and livability of the project.

Final design approvals and groundbreaking of La Posada at Pusch Ridge are now expected in early spring, with an opportunity in the coming weeks for local seniors to participate in a Priority Sales Program, to learn more about reserving a residence in the new community. Move-ins are planned to begin in late 2024.

“We are excited about development of our second campus, with an opportunity to offer a new and wonderful lifestyle option for the residents of the Oro Valley area,” said Simon Davis, Chair of the La Posada Board of Trustees.   The La Posada organization is led by Joni Condit, President and CEO.

La Posada is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Green Valley, dedicated to providing a stimulating and enriching environment for seniors.  Established over 34 years ago, and sponsored by Tucson Medical Center, La Posada has an estimated annual impact of more than $50 million on the economy of Southern Arizona.  La Posada currently employs more than 600 staff, and serves a community of nearly 800 residents.  It maintains active community partnerships with area schools and service organizations.  La Posada is recognized nationally as a leader in innovation and accountability in the field of senior living.

Who Are The 2021 La Posada Scholarship Recipients?
2021 La Posada Scholarship Award Winners

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

In 2000, La Posada resident Wendell Bowers shared an idea with others at La Posada…

“Wouldn’t be great if we could launch a scholarship program here at La Posada for the employees.”

No one at the time realized what a terrific idea this was. His vision was to have a scholarship program that supported employees of La Posada in an array of educational areas to unleash their full potential.

The first scholarship was granted in 2000 in the amount of $500 to one individual. Wendell Bowers didn’t give up. He continued to sell the program to La Posada residents and continued to raise funds to support it. Today, the La Posada Scholarship program gives La Posada employees financial assistance to pursue educational opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

In 2021, the La Posada Scholarship program awarded 51 employees a total of $118,779 in educational assistance toward earning a college degree, professional development certifications or continuing education, English as a Second Language class, GED Training, US Citizenship testing, and Certified Nursing Assistance training.

The La Posada Scholarship Committee operates this program with assistance from the Posada Life Foundation staff members. The La Posada Scholarship Program offers three types of scholarship assistance to employees: regular scholarships, high school scholarships for teenage employees, and endowment scholarships.

Thank you to all past and present La Posada residents who have given financial and volunteer support to this scholarship program. This program thrives because of your generosity and dedication with helping others achieve prosperity.

Congratulations to all 2021 regular, high school, and endowment scholarship recipients!

To be eligible for the La Posada scholarship program, an employee must have worked at La Posada for 6 months, be in good standing and demonstrate satisfactory academic progress for continued financial support.

Resident Reflections…A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY

A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY
is where I am fortunate to live
the last segment of my life—
a community of seven hundred residents
and five hundred employees, like a little town
on this one hundred fifty acres of property,
with all the food and shelter services provided,
three libraries, an observatory, a little store,
along with online shopping for personal needs,
and if I want to go outside my little town
to shop or see doctors or the larger library
I can ride the bus or the van provided
for those purposes.
I can walk or ride on the tram around
the grounds of my little town
for they are some of the most compelling features,
containing pecan trees and green grass
and multi-colored flowers,
walking trails for visiting meditation and poetry
and butterfly gardens, and even a coffee shop
for meeting friends from the larger communities,
ramadas and benches for sitting to rest,
and changing views from mountains to a river,
usually a dry river bed where one could study earth science
or wait for the excitement of water running in rainy weather.
And then the levels of care available if and when I need them—
I am grateful.

The Connect: Green Valley app is a convenient source of information and solutions for people seeking life-enriching community services. This is one stop shopping, helping people connect with area health, wellness, and support service providers. This app is FREE and updated frequently by Green Valley community service providers.

Connect: Green Valley is an app (interactive application), designed to streamline your search for adult services in Green Valley. Initially funded by a generous grant from the Freeport – McMoRan Community Investment Foundation, Posada Life set out to create a portable and convenient “one stop” for locating and exploring adult services in Green Valley and our surrounding area.  Posada Life designed the application to be user-friendly and operate across multiple devices.

This application was designed based on three pillars: Learn, Locate and Listen.

Learning: Our education section, powered by our Inspired Living Institute, provides the user with targeted information on a variety of topics, all designed to educate the user and provide a solid foundation of knowledge.

Locate: Using the mapping feature, the user can locate services in the desired area, contact those providers and begin to build a plan of action.

Listen: Users may also send providers correspondence and feedback based on services provided.

Where do I find this free app?

Let La Posada help you take the mystery out of retirement!

For some, retirement is filled with uncertainty.  For others, retirement is the time to live well, reinvent oneself, and create new memories through new friendships, travels, and “dream jobs” (volunteering)!

Retirement is the time to choose what you want to do and how you wish to live everyday. Where you choose to live in retirement needs to meet your intellectual, social, and physical desires. Where you choose to retire needs to create wonderful memories.
