Frequently Asked Questions

How is Fellowship Square affiliated with Christian Care Companies?

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. Shortly after, Christian Care opened its first subsidized senior housing building, Manor 1, in 1981; followed by Manor 2 in 1984. Growth on the Phoenix campus did not stop there! Fellowship Square Phoenix opened its doors in 1989, followed by Manor 3 in 1993, and The Oasis Assisted Living in 1997.

Today, Christian Care operates six retirement communities across the state of Arizona: Cottonwood, Historic Mesa, Phoenix, Mesa, Surprise and Tucson.  

Fellowship Square is the name of Christian Care's market-rate, independent senior living communities.  Our market-rate assisted living is called The Oasis, and our subsidized senior housing apartments are called The Manors.  Each campus differs slightly in the level of programs and services they provide.  

Christian Care's spiritual foundation continues to be a significant characteristic in its day to day operation and is reflected in our mission:

“Through Christian love and excellence we are dedicated to providing a fulfilling lifestyle and promoting independence to those we serve.”


I value my privacy, what if I don’t want to participate in activities?

This is a concern many future residents express. They worry that by moving into a retirement community, they will be giving up their freedom. They worry that their lifestyle will be limited by rules and restrictions, when in fact, the opposite is true.

Moving into a senior living community isn’t about giving up your freedom and independence, it’s about choice.

What our residents find is that the convenience and support of services available allows them to enjoy greater independence and freedom. Services such as housekeeping, transportation and maintenance enable them to have more free time for what they really want to do. Our Activities Department is truly dedicated to keeping our activities calendar fresh and inspiring - you can do it all, or do nothing. Each day is your own!


What is your SeniorFITness™ program?

SeniorFITness™ is focused on improving seniors' overall wellness through a wide range of strengthening, balancing and flexibility exercises. We offer one-on-one fitness instruction on fitness equipment to ensure a safe and effective workout. Group exercises are also provided.

SeniorFITness™ is available for all of our residents, in every level of care on campus: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Memory Care. We are very pleased to offer this program at no extra charge to our residents. Every participant in our program receives a personalized fitness plan developed by a Certified Fitness Specialist.


Do your rental rates increase every year?

Yes, rental rates for Independent Living increase every January 1; Assisted Living rates increase every June 1. While the percentages vary, rates usually increase between 2% and 4%.

Our Board of Directors takes many factors into account when making this decision, including overhead expenses, government mandates, market conditions and affordability.


Can I bring my pet?

Absolutely, we are a pet-friendly community! We allow one small pet per apartment (30 pounds or less) in Independent Living. A non-refundable pet fee will apply. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in Assisted Living. However, leashed visitors are always welcome!


What is the difference between Assisted Living and Independent Living?

Assisted Living offers a higher level of care than what is available in Independent Living. Assisted Living is ideal for those who need supportive services in their day-to-day lives, but they do not require the 24-hour skilled nursing care found in nursing centers.


What health insurance plans does Christian Care Health Center contract with?

Christian Care Health Center accepts ALTCS, Medicare A & B, private pay and most managed care insurance plans.

For more information, please call Admissions at 602-443-5470 or email:

The main phone number at the Health Center is 602-833-4177.


Are there any reasons a resident might be denied admission in the Health Center?

Because everyone’s needs are different, we will consider admission for all inquiries. However, some possible reasons for denial include:

  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s needs - our Health Center is not a secured unit.
  • Combative behaviors
  • Resident has an insurance plan that we do not contract with
  • Complex medical conditions at the time of hospital discharge


I understand that you have low-income housing options for seniors?

Yes we do! Manors I & III offer HUD subsidized, independent senior housing; and in Manor II we provide ALTCS-subsidized Assisted Living for seniors.  Prospective Residents must meet HUD income and age restrictions (62 years & older).

For more information on our subsidized housing for seniors, please contact the Phoenix Manors’ office at 602-833-5057 or via email:
