Phoenix, AZ, August 22, 2022 – TapRoot Interventions & Solutions (TapRoot), creators of digital caregiver assistant Ella℠, is expanding its innovative platform to Fellowship Square-Mesa.

Fellowship Square-Mesa’s Executive Director, Jon Scott Williams added, ”We’re excited to launch Ella and looking forward to accessing the reporting function that the platform generates.“

About Fellowship Square-Mesa

Center of Aging Excellence™ in senior living

Today’s senior living adults look for innovation and vision. This supports their tradition of faith based American values when selecting a senior living community. We have chosen to be a “Center of Aging Excellence” by constantly looking for ways to meet the needs of our community residents. We allow them to “Celebrate Life” at all stages of their lives.

A Christian Care Company

Founded in 1979, a handful of devoted Christians recognized an opportunity to minister to Arizona seniors – particularly those with little financial resources. Realizing the need, they formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and named it Christian Care.

“Cast me not off in the time of old age: forsake me not with my strength faileth.” Psalm 71:9

It all comes together here, the freedom to pursue what you desire, and freedom from the things you don’t. Learn new skills, meet new friends, or just relax in a Ramada with a good book… live each day as you choose.
