U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson and Congresswoman Debbie Lesko made a trip to Arizona to visit Glencroft Center for Modern Aging and discuss the impact of COVID-19
Glendale, Ariz. (June 19, 2020) – United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson and Congresswoman Debbie Lesko visited Glencroft Center for Modern Aging which recently integrated a HUD 103 unit uninsured senior living building into its senior community of 900 residents.
HUD residents have access to all restaurants, ZoeLife culture including the Performance Center (full gym), University Room for continuing education classes, all health and wellness programs including the Parkinson’s Immersion Program and Stroke Immersion Program. All campus life activity events and other amenities the Glencroft offers.
Glencroft’s partnership with HUD provides housing and health care to the nation’s most vulnerable senior population. The partnership is a perfect example of how HUD and Glencroft are taking care of seniors.
Glencroft has been impacted by COVID-19 and its response was nothing short of remarkable. A food pantry was set-up for residents and staff to regularly shop for items needed. “While in quarantine, residents and staff had limited time and/or opportunity to shop so we became their grocery store,” said Scott McClintock, Glencroft’s Chief Strategy Officer, adding a COVID-19 testing site was also set-up on campus to expedite outcomes as well as dedicated isolation areas to treat infected residents.
McClintock said while at Glencroft, Secretary Carson and Congresswoman Lesko made a commitment to help elderly residents and support the CARESAct, which is critical for the seniors of Glencroft and Americans across the country.
