I never really realized how big Fresno, California is. I have most certainly heard about it many times, and I think that I have been through there a couple of times as a kid, but never really grasped that it is a pretty major city in California. I suppose that it can be said that it is in a pretty good location too. You are near wine country, the mountains and Yosemite, and just a hop and a skip away from Sacramento. There is a pretty healthy senior population in Fresno as well – almost 50,000 residents are over 65! Fresno also has the UCSF Fresno Alzheimer’s & Memory Center, which is a pretty big deal for many seniors considering assisted living in this area.
For these reasons, I have added Fresno assisted living to the site – a page dedicated to this great town. My hope is that this page will become the difinitive resource for the Fresno area for assisted living and long-term care.
I think California in general is going to see a huge boom in the number of seniors in the coming 4-5 years. The weather is one major factor that would attract more seniors, but California also has a very ‘friendly’ atmosphere when it comes to ‘alternative’ lifestyles, which may attract seniors that wouldn’t feel welcome in more conservative states.
