The California Armenian Home is a not-for-profit corporation established in 1952 by the local Armenian community, which generously donated 40-acres of land in Fresno, California’s southeast countryside, the building, and the funds to furnish a continuing care retirement community. Today, 65 years later, the renowned California Armenian Home provides both short and long-term 24-hour skilled nursing and rehabilitation residency and takes most insurance programs.

To prepare for the growing senior population, the California Armenian Home Board of Directors unanimously approved the $42 million expansion project, The Vineyards in 2014. The continuing care expansion opened for residency in January 2018 and includes private pay, month-to-month rents for resort-style independent living villas and apartments, assisted living and memory care apartments, plus a host of hospitality amenities, multiple dining establishments, recreation, fitness, and daily needs services.

The California Armenian Home and The Vineyards welcomes senior residents of any national origin and includes dedicated and caring professional staff and volunteers.
