Construction begins on luxury apartments for seniors. Oakmont Senior Living broke ground on a 75,000-square-foot luxury retirement community in Fresno on Sept. 3. The center is located at 5606 N. Gates Avenue and will cater to active seniors in search of resort-style amenities.

Reservations are now being accepted for the 56 assisted living and 23 memory care apartments. Construction is expected to be completed by spring 2015.

“We like to say that we will be the region’s luxury cruise liner of retirement communities with highly skilled chefs, an endless list of fitness and entertainment activities, and a comprehensive catalog of quality care options,” Oakmont Executive Director Valerie Epps said in a prepared statement. “Oakmont of Fresno will be a place where seniors can still enjoy the best that life has to offer.”

The community will offer gourmet dining, on- and off-site recreational and social activities, a library, movie theater, fitness center, salon and day spa, gardens and chauffeured transportation services.

Oakmont of Fresno will also offer customized care services like medication management, housekeeping, grooming assistance, dietary guidance escort services for off-site appointments and in-home care. The center specializes in memory care and will offer services specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Headquartered in Santa Rosa, Oakmont Senior Living is family-owned and operated.
