    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fresno

    Fresno is a big farm town in the heart of the southern reaches of California's San Joaquin Valley. Home to 527,000 residents, nearly 12 percent of Fresno's people are seniors aged 65 and over. At least 88 assisted living facilities operate inside of and nearby the city of Fresno, where seniors can live with as much independence and privacy as their health allows.

    Like all such residential care communities in the state, Fresno's assisted living facilities are licensed and regulated through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fresno

    • The climate in Fresno is hot and dry through the summer, when midday temperatures average as much as 96 degrees. That changes fast in fall, when overnight lows drop in the space of a month to only 38 degrees. The entire Fresno area is semi-arid and gets just under 13 inches of rain a year. Pollen from the surrounding farmland can cause issues for seniors with asthma, especially in spring when allergen counts are at their highest.
    • The cost of living in Fresno is just 6 percent higher than the national average across all categories of expense combined. Healthcare is especially affordable in Fresno, where costs are close to 3 percent above the national average. California at large runs to roughly 69 percent above the national cost of living, which makes Fresno an exception among large cities here.
    • Crime rates in Fresno are 30 percent higher than national average rates. Much of this is property crime, such as theft, while violent crime remains relatively rare in most parts of town.
    • The Fresno Area Express (FAX) provides 17 scheduled routes in and around the city of Fresno, and another four into the surrounding rural lands of Fresno County through Clovis Transit. Seniors can ride both services with a discount, and all FAX buses are equipped with ramps and kneeling hydraulics to make boarding and leaving buses as easy as possible for mobility-impaired riders. 
    • The Fresno area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Clovis Community Medical Center and Fresno Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Fresno has an array of community resources for seniors, including the California Department of Aging, an organization that offers a variety of free and low-cost programs and benefits to seniors of all income levels, as well as more than half a dozen senior centers.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage

    Free Assisted Living Resources in Fresno

    Fresno and the surrounding area are home to numerous government agencies and non-profit organizations offering help for seniors searching for or currently residing in an assisted living community. These organizations can also provide assistance in a number of other eldercare services such as geriatric care management, elder law advice, estate planning, finding home care and health and wellness programs.

    To see a list of free assisted living resources in Fresno, please visit our Assisted Living in California page.


    Assisted Living Laws and Regulations in Fresno

    Fresno-area assisted living communities must adhere to the comprehensive set of state laws and regulations that all assisted living communities in California are required to follow. Visit our Assisted Living in California page for more information about these laws.

This is a relatively low cost of living, especially when compared to larger cities and coastal regions in California. For example, in the state capital of Sacramento, the annual salary needed to satisfy the basic cost of living needs is $25,741. In more expensive coastal cities like San Francisco, the minimum necessary income could be as high as nearly $39,000.

    • How much does assisted living cost in Fresno?

      In Fresno, assisted living costs an average of $3,861 each month, according to Genworth Financial’s Cost of Long Term Care tool. The average in California is $4,500, so Fresno’s cost falls 16.5% lower than is the average for the state. The cost of assisted living in Fresno is also 4.9% lower than the national average of $4,050.

    • What are the demographics in Fresno?

      As of 2018 estimates from the US Census, the population of Fresno is 530,093. The population is estimated to have grown 6.6% since 2010, a rate comparable to both the state and nation.

The median annual household income in Fresno is $44,853.

    • Who qualifies for assisted living?

      California law requires that those admitted to an assisted living facility be healthy enough that they are reasonably mobile and able to look after at least some of their own daily needs. Assisted living facilities cannot accept those who are bedridden, who have a contagious disease or serious infection, or otherwise have severe medical or mental needs that need 24-hour medical care or supervision.

    • What does assisted living include?

      In Fresno, assisted living facilities offer single and double occupant rooms as well as some full apartments that have private bathrooms and kitchens. Life in an assisted living facility includes planned social times and assistance with a wide variety of tasks. Exactly what you can get assistance with depends largely on what kind of care the facility decides to offer. Medical needs can’t be met at these facilities except in some cases where the resident hires their own nurse.
