ASU To Develop Continuing Care 'Life Plan' Facility — Integrating Education, Culture, Health Care And Intergenerational Childcare Programs

Arizona State University, in collaboration with the Arizona State University Foundation and Pacific Retirement Services, will develop a university-based life plan community near the corner of University Drive and Mill Avenue on ASU’s campus and within steps of downtown Tempe’s restaurants and cultural venues.

The facility will engage older alumni and retired faculty, staff and friends by providing lifelong learning, a continuum of health-care services for aging adults and an environment rich in performing arts, social, athletic and research activities. Plans for extensive amenities include on-site physicians, fitness, dining, estate planning, on-campus educational and mentoring opportunities, and concierge services, as well as intergenerational childcare programming that has been shown to improve academic performance in children and emotional and physical health in aging adults.
