If you’ve been wondering whether a move to a senior living community is the right thing, you’ll be pleasantly reassured to hear that life at Beatitudes Campus comes with fewer risks and many more rewards. We’ve reimagined senior living to enhance everyday life, even in a pandemic.

Healthy All Year Long

As experts in healthcare, senior living communities understand how to safeguard your health and well-being. The staff, including ours, follows strict protocols for safety and cleanliness, and most communities have the capabilities and resources to respond quickly and efficiently to any issues.

At well-planned communities like Beatitudes Campus, older adults are healthier year-round. Opportunities to take fitness classes, swim, dance, walk, garden, paint, learn a language, socialize, volunteer and participate in an array of activities and programs help keep bodies and minds sharp. Regardless of your age, being healthy is the best defense against any illness, especially colds and flus.

“I love the life here,” said Anita Shehi, who moved to Beatitudes Campus in 2019. “For me, there’s a sense of renewed purpose being active in the community, making new friends, volunteering, taking classes and getting back into learning.”

Social Distancing Without Social Isolation

Social distancing to stay safe has affected everyone. Not being able to enjoy the familiar routines of our favorite activities or the simple social interactions that come from dining out or gathering for meals has taken a profound toll on our cognitive abilities and mental and emotional well-being, not the least of which our healthy eating habits and waistlines. It’s been especially difficult for older adults who may be retired and live in one- or two-person households.

Building on years of experience developing social, recreational and educational opportunities, senior living communities are working hard to help residents stay active and connected. At Beatitudes Campus, staff and resident volunteers work together to create enjoyable virtual activities, physically distanced indoor festivities and carefully planned outdoor events that keep people engaged and moving.

As for eating healthy, senior communities make it easy to enjoy a variety of delicious and nutritious meals at on-campus restaurants. Beatitudes Campus, for example, has several restaurants, from a bistro and coffee bar to a steakhouse and grille to a gourmet dining room. Throughout the pandemic, the community’s staff has delivered made-to-order restaurant meals, groceries and essentials to residents’ homes.

“There’s nowhere we’d rather be than right here, especially now. We feel safer and more secure at Beatitudes. The staff handles everything,” said Dan and Marge O’Horo, who moved to Beatitudes Campus in 2016. “They’ve worked really hard to keep life fun and engaging as we stay home to stay safe.”

Access to Healthcare and Help at Home

In addition to enjoyable activities and convenient services, many senior living communities offer access to onsite healthcare, making it easier to treat illnesses and chronic conditions so they don’t escalate to a bigger issue. At Beatitudes Campus, you’ll find onsite health services, from certified 24/7 security response and an outpatient clinic for primary care and podiatry services to rehabilitative therapies and specialized care such as skilled nursing care and memory support.

While we’ve seen on the news how many people across the country have to wait in line for care, at Beatitudes Campus, you can make an appointment for a doctor’s visit, a vaccination or physical therapy session, for example. If you’re not feeling well enough to come in, we’ll send medical staff to your home so you never have to go without care. As we’ve mentioned before, Beatitudes Campus was part of the early vaccine rollout and continues to help get vaccines to those who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus.

Beyond in-home care, Beatitudes Campus also offers in-home support and assistance with a variety of tasks, including meal prep, pet care, errands, laundry, medication reminders and more — all helpful services whether there’s a pandemic or not.

“While we’re looking forward to getting back to our normal routine, we’re extremely grateful to be here during this difficult time. We can’t imagine trying to face this ourselves,” said Robert Andrews and Cynthia Cielle, who moved to Beatitudes Campus in 2019. “When deciding where to move, it was important to us to feel completely safe. We didn’t realize how very important that decision would become.”

As you look to future healthcare needs, it’s hard to prepare for everything, especially for something as unique as a worldwide pandemic. But, with a little planning, you can be ready for most foreseeable situations and hope that your plan also holds steady against even the most unpredictable circumstances. It’s time to plan, so you’re prepared for tomorrow.

Fortunately, that’s what Beatitudes Campus and other Life Plan communities offer—a safety net of sorts. They provide true peace of mind for your future healthcare needs by offering virtually everything you need at the community.

For example, in Beatitudes Campus’ onsite clinic, Mobile Valley Physicians, physicians and nurse practitioners can help you with primary care and podiatry services as well as coordinate rehabilitative therapies and lab tests and help you manage any chronic illnesses you have. Better yet, they can make house calls when you don’t feel like coming into the physician’s office.

Beatitudes Campus also offers ongoing in-home care and support as well as a variety of health services in the onsite health center. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or surgery, need to regain strength or manage pain, our rehabilitative experts can tailor a program just for you. If you ever need long-term nursing care or memory support, we offer several levels of care.

Beatitudes Campus Residents Receive COVID-19 Vaccine

As for the pandemic, Beatitudes Campus has been at the forefront ensuring residents are able to stay safe while receiving the essential services they need. We’re privileged to be part of the early vaccine rollout and getting vaccines into the arms of those who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus. All residents and staff will have the opportunity to be vaccinated on January 26, 2021, with second follow-up on-campus clinics occurring on February 23 and March 23, 2021.

Joining the vaccination program is just one example of Beatitudes Campus’ commitment to caring for seniors and their families. We’re a nationally recognized, award-winning leader in senior living because of our innovative programs, exceptional healthcare and vibrant, purpose-driven lifestyle.

Whether it’s ensuring you’re surrounded by enjoyable amenities and supportive services or securing early access to a critical vaccine, Beatitudes Campus helps you plan ahead and prepare for predictable—even unpredictable—circumstances. That’s real peace of mind.

For some, the season of giving and gratitude comes once a year. At Beatitudes Campus, it truly lasts all year long. Volunteering during the COVID-19 pandemic is a great example of how our residents have shown their involvement. Hundreds of residents spend thousands of hours helping others, from tutoring students and assisting with English language translation to visiting homebound seniors and organizing sustainability projects.

Resident musicians hold live performances on campus while artists exhibit amazing artwork at Beatitudes’ Annual Art Show. Some join in parks and rail cleanup programs. Others help organize charity events.

Giving back is such a deeply important part of our senior living community that we have an entire CARECorps™ volunteer program designed to connect residents with opportunities to serve. Their impact starts right here in the Beatitudes Campus community and reaches out to local communities all around Phoenix and the state of Arizona. It’s one of the reasons Beatitudes Campus is an award-winning place to live.

Be Inspired: Learn How Residents Share Their Time & Talents
Dedicated resident volunteers use their time and talents in countless ways. Not even the pandemic can stop them because they’re Beatitudes Strong. 

Bridging The Gap With Tech
Joining a team of other residents with tech-savvy skills, Marc Adelman helps people setup and use their TVs, computers, video calls, email, cell phones and other smart devices. This year, we’ve all learned how very important technology is in keeping us connected to family and friends. 

Before the pandemic, Marc helped create the computerized tracking system for the Gaming Connection™, a special calendar that organizes all of the game and puzzle meetups happening across campus. Residents use the system every day to find fun things to do while staying safe.

Continuing Education
Residents manage and operate the Beatitudes Center for Lifelong Learning™, which features an expansive program of college-style courses taught by college professors, entrepreneurs, artists, campus staff and resident experts. Normally, the program includes three in-person semesters packed with classes. During the pandemic, resident experts have been teaching virtual classes on the closed circuit TV channel.

Giving Their Time
Like the lifelong learning program, residents manage and operate the Backstreet Boutique thrift shop, whose proceeds benefit the Beatitudes Auxiliary. Although it’s not as open as often with the pandemic, our resident volunteers are the heartbeat of this shop.

Shaping The Future
Residents serve in an array of campus organizations designed to enhance life, including the Welcome Committee, Dining Committee, Health and Wellness Committee, faith-based groups and more. 

Through the Welcome Committee, resident ambassadors help new residents settle in and find their way around. Being a part of the Ambassadors program provides potential residents a personal view of life at Beatitudes Campus.

Many residents are actively involved with The Studio, a residents’ think tank that works with the Beatitudes Campus leadership to foster and create innovative resident-driven programs for the future.

Be Impactful: Are You Looking For Ways To Show Your Gratitude & Give Back This Season?

Here are five things you can do right now while staying safe during the pandemic.

1. Donate Food & Essentials To A Community Pantry. So many individuals and families are in dire need of the basics during the pandemic, especially those working on the frontlines in grocery stores, warehouses, restaurants, food processing plants, gas stations and medical centers. Show your support and gratitude by making a drop-off donation to a community pantry near you. Better yet, let your friends and neighbors know what you’re doing and ask if they would like to contribute to make a bigger impact.

2. Give Blood. Blood is almost always in short supply at hospitals and with the pandemic the situation is getting even worse. Show your support and gratitude for health care workers by giving blood. While it may not sound like much, by doing so you’ll literally save lives. Find where to donate on the Red Cross website.

3. Ordering Takeout? Tip As If You’re Dining In. All across the country locally owned restaurants are on the brink of closing because of the effects of the pandemic. Support small businesses and their employees by ordering takeout and show your gratitude for the risk they’re taking by tipping as if you’re dining in.

4. Ask A Local School How You Can Help Disadvantaged Students. As schools move from in-person classes to remote learning, students and their families are struggling to adapt. Many students need simple things like a desk, chair or printer. Others need tutoring and help with homework. Some students are left alone while their parents work and need the reassuring voice of an adult. Show your support for educators and students caught up in this crisis by helping where you can. If you have extra office equipment and the school knows of students in need, consider donating it. If you can help with a school subject and are savvy with computers and video calling, consider tutoring a student virtually. If you have time to spare, consider joining Big Brothers Big Sisters or AmeriCorps Foster Grandparent program to keep kids company virtually while they’re alone.

5. Wear A Mask. Show your support and gratitude for all of the exhausted healthcare workers out there by wearing a mask. Lead the way in your family, among your friends and in your neighborhood. Wearing a mask is a simple step that helps protect you and others. Most importantly, if you feel sick, contact your doctor, stay home and take care of yourself.

Are you making decisions based on fact or fiction?
Find out as we dispel a few myths about senior living.

When you’re trying to decide on the best plan for your future, it’s natural if lingering concerns make you hesitate. What if those concerns are rooted in long-time myths about senior living and misunderstandings? How do you sort fact from fiction? If you’re thinking about your future, you need the facts, especially now when a worldwide pandemic has all of us feeling particularly uneasy.

MYTH: I’m safer where I live now.
FACT: You’re likely safer living in a well-managed senior community.

If you live in a condo or standalone home, you likely have to venture out in public quite a bit, which exposes you to a lot of people with the virus. Senior living communities are focused every day on keeping people safe, so your risk of exposure is much lower. Plus, it’s easier to stay home. Right now, most communities are delivering groceries, meals, medications and other essentials to your door. If you do get sick, many senior living communities offer in-home care and support if you need it.

MYTH: I’ll be even more bored than I already am.
FACT: Senior living communities are working hard to keep people entertained and engaged.

Certainly, life has a different tempo now. For example, just a few months ago, Beatitudes Campus was buzzing with activity as residents gathered for book club meetings, happy hours, fitness classes, musical performances, worship services, cards, games and more. But, today, we’re all finding new ways to connect and enjoy life.

Staff at senior living communities are hosting socially distanced events and online book club meetings, fitness classes, educational programs and other special activities. With virtual tutorials, residents are learning new skills at home, such as painting and jewelry making. Others are enjoying the outdoors on cooler evenings by walking, tending to their flowers and talking with friends on the patio — all socially distanced, of course.

MYTH: I already have everything I need.
FACT: At a senior living community, you’ll have access to everything you may need and more.

At a senior living community, you have the resources of the entire community available to you, from helpful staff and home delivery of the essentials to onsite healthcare. At Beatitudes Campus, we’re also providing frequent COVID-19 screenings and testing so you don’t have to travel to your doctor’s office or wait for hours in line at a testing site. And, when the pandemic is over, you’ll be able to enjoy an even more vibrant community filled with lots of in-person entertainment, and educational, fitness and social opportunities — all things that don’t come with a typical standalone house.

MYTH: This is not the time to make a move.
FACT: Now is a great time to plan your next move.

If you’re feeling uneasy about moving right now, that’s completely understandable. As you know, it takes time to make decisions, so why not use this time to explore your options? Learn about the services and amenities provided by senior living communities. Talk to residents. Ask about costs.

For starters, you can check out videos and floor plans on our website for a quick armchair tour of Beatitudes Campus. For an in-depth look, we’re offering video appointments with a residency counselor who can show you more and answer your questions.
