United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson wore a mask June 16 while visiting Glendale’s Glencroft Center for Modern Aging, which has been hit hard by COVID-19, with 35 deaths.
The campus has around 900 senior residents; Glencroft says 91 residents had COVID-19 but have recovered.
Glencroft continues to be a model of transparency/communication, providing frequently updated statistics on its website.
Dr. Carson and Rep. Debbie Lesko, who represents the 8th Congressional District including Peoria and part of Glendale, visited Glencroft to discuss the impact of COVID-19.
Glencroft recently integrated a HUD 103 unit uninsured senior living building into its senior community.
HUD residents have access to all restaurants; ZoeLife culture, including the Performance Center (full gym); University Room for continuing education classes; and all health and wellness programs, including the Parkinson’s Immersion and Stroke Immersion programs.
Glencroft’s partnership with HUD provides housing and health care to some of the West Valley’s most vulnerable seniors.
