About Christian Care
In 1979, a handful of devoted Christians recognized an opportunity to minister to Arizona seniors (particularly those with little financial resources) by offering affordable nursing care. Realizing the need, they formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and named it Christian Care. In 1980, the cornerstone was laid for a sixty-bed "Nursing Center" and inscribed with the following:
"Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth." Psalm 71:9
Christian Care's spiritual foundation continues to be a significant characteristic in its day to day operation and is reflected in our mission. We are motivated by "Christian love" and we "strive to provide quality and responsive senior housing, hospitality and healthcare services." This motivation was true twenty-five years ago, is true today and will be true twenty-five years from now.
Since 1979, Christian Care has added Assisted and Independent living units to their communities and has grown to five campuses throughout Arizona; making them the largest provider of senior housing in Arizona. Additionally, Ziegler Capital Markets Group ranks Christian Care as the eighth fastest growing non-profit senior living organization in the nation since 1990.
With approximately one in four Arizonian's considered to be a baby boomer, there is an unprecedented opportunity to care for and assist an older population. Today, more than 2,100 seniors live in a Christian Care community. Our motivation is unchanged and we will continue to "strive" to "provide quality and responsive senior housing, hospitality, and healthcare services."
