Community First, Community Forward: The La Posada 2021 Annual Report

La Posada 2021 Annual Report

Community first, community forward.

La Posada is guided by its mission “to maximize the well-being of seniors” and had many successes to celebrate in 2021.

Continued high occupancy and high resident satisfaction reflect trust in staff, management, and our Board’s leadership. With nearly 100% of residents and staff fully vaccinated, pre-pandemic programs and services have been resumed. Seventeen new Pavilion homes were completed and all but one occupied by year-end. Excitement is growing as construction documents, and marketing efforts are being finalized to build a second La Posada campus in Oro Valley, Arizona. In addition, La Posada continued to support its community partners, such as the Green Valley Fire District and the Sahuarita and Green Valley Food Banks.

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.

La Posada’s Emergency Plan for Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please read and share…

La Posada logo.

Please read! La Posada’s Emergency Plan for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The health and well-being of our residents, employees, and all of our families are of utmost importance during this unprecedented time. As we all are witnessing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolving by the minute, we wanted to let families and friends know the measures we are taking to ensure the safety and well-being of residents, customers, and staff. We are following recommendations put forth by the CDC as well as the Pima County Health Department and Arizona Department of Health in an effort to protect those we serve while ensuring the continuity of essential services and care. Our executive team, under the overall guidance of La Posada’s Board of Trustees, is working together with management and resident leaders to proactively implement our Emergency Plan as needed.

One of the most important aspects of mitigating a pandemic is to slow down the spread of the infection, referred to by experts as “flattening the curve“. Importantly, this helps to avoid overwhelming our healthcare systems and allows for better treatment of those who need it, resulting in fewer deaths. It also allows time for effective testing to be distributed and hopefully the development of treatments. La Posada aims to do our part to help flatten the curve of the virus by taking measures to reduce public exposure.

Some of these measures include:

  • Seven staff and resident forums to inform about the symptoms and dangers that COVID-19 and the seasonal flu pose with particular concern for senior citizens.
  • All staff has been trained about the importance of proper handwashing. Reminder signs have been employee bathrooms.
  • Infection control protocols have all been reviewed with nursing staff throughout campus.
  • Care Management nursing staff are triaging sick residents in independent living by telephone to determine what care is needed and to assist in making arrangements to see a medical provider if needed.
  • Management is regularly checking with Green Valley Fire to align procedurally to assure the best measures in 911 calls are taken.
  • La Posada’s three Assisted Living buildings are closed to all visitors until further notice. Residents of La Joya, La Via, and La Hacienda have been asked to remain on the campus except for emergency medical care. We recognize how difficult this will be for residents and their loved ones but limiting potential exposure is a crucial element of containment of the virus.
  • Residents in independent living have been discouraged to have any visitors to campus and encouraged to voluntarily isolate in their homes.
  • No outside visitors are allowed for now in any of La Posada’s six dining rooms. The “Gourmet To Go” pick up and go service is readily available and plans to close all on-campus dining rooms will be implemented on Tuesday, March 24, and will be replaced with meal service delivery to resident homes.
  • The Continental Club for non-resident members has been temporarily suspended until further notice.
  • All group classes and off-campus trips have been canceled. Six video-taped exercise programs are available to residents on La Posada’s in-house television.
  • The monthly Resident Council meeting was closed to attendees but was broadcast live to residents in their homes.

Special Events that have been canceled include:

  • The Taste of La Posada (March 20)
  • The final Concert for a Better Community at the Shoppes
  • Farmers Market at the Shoppes (Mondays)
  • AARP Tax Services in the Recreation Center
  • Off-campus groups’ use of La Posada meeting spaces
  • The Performing Arts program at the end of March
  • Great Decisions Series
  • The Friday Resident Forums
  • Caregiver Event Day at Posada Life Community Services
  • The Community Centenarian Breakfast

Other events not mentioned are subject to change.

From all of us at La Posada, be safe and stay healthy!
