The $42 million retirement community built upon a 65-year legacy of care and compassion is currently the largest privately funded project of its kind under construction on the Central Valley.
FRESNO, CA — the Board of Directors of the California Armenian Home announced that its $42 million expansion project. The Vineyards, is nearing completion.
Core construction is finished and final amenities will be installed through the end of the year. The retirement community is currently the largest privately funded construction project of its kind in California’s Central Valley, and the newest hospitality-inspired continuing care community to be built in the Fresno/Clovis region.
The Armenian community rallied together over six decades ago to ensure that a senior living community was available for all those in need with the construction of the California Armenian Home. That giving spirit continues today with The Vineyards, where the generous contribution of the S Barre Paul and Sue Garabedian Trust serves as a foundation for the multitude of donors that continues to grow through philanthropy and volunteerism, which is grounded in a commitment of senior care for all cultures.
The Vineyards at the California Armenian Home sits adjacent to its flagship community within the lush 40 acre grounds originally donated and built by the local Armenian community in 1952.
The expansion spans over 174,000 square feet of maintenance and worry-free independent living, assisted living and memory care accommodations, offering a continuum of senior living life style and care for residents. The Santa Barbara style architecture features spacious residences that have been designed to maximize the light and warmth of the maturely-grown, park-like setting and offer every amenity imaginable.
The luxury living community will soon be unveiled for seniors over the 60 with the first residents expected to move in during January 2018.
The community features 12 resort-style independent living villas with two care garages, 60 spacious independent living apartments, and 50 assisted living and 36 memory care apartments – all of which provide for a continuum of care with no buy-in requirement.
