Clovis, a paradise for senior living
December 20, 2013 by
One of the best kept gems in the San Joaquin Valley is the small town of Clovis, right in the Fresno area. The mild weather, small town feel and longtime reputation of being a great place to live has made it an inviting place for many Senior Care Facilities, Independent living centers, and other senior living.
This quaint town is known as the "Gateway to the Sierras", and is at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Fresno County. It's bisecting State Highway 168, as well as close proximity to State Highways 41, 99, and 180 make it easy to visit, and its location in the San Joaquin Valleys rich agriculture, and close Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks make it a place you'll want to call home.
The town of Clovis was named after one of its prominent early residents, Clovis M. Cole and was originally a freight stop on the old San Joaquin Valley railway. This community developed over time first from lumber industries and later was boosted by the grain production and livestock industries. It was incorporated as a city in 1912, taking shape as a distinctive western town, and still is famous for its small town flavor.
One of the favorite places to go is Old Town Clovis. It is one of the oldest and most areas. Visitors flock to the classic brick sidewalks that take them on a tour of little antique shops, fun and ethnic restaurants, and more. The Clovis Senior Center has general entertainment year round, a library and pool hall. There are great museums like the 9-11 Memorial Museum and the Clovis Big Dry Creek Museum. The Clovis Botanical Gardens are a must see and the Avecinia Wellness Center has Senior Yoga. Among the city's annual events is the Clovis Rodeo which draws in over 70,000 people and has BBQ championships and fun things to do, and Sierra Vista Mall is a local place for Seniors to pick up needs for Christmas or Birthday shopping for grandchildren.
In Clovis, being surrounded by beauty and local culture is coupled with the safety and reassurance of nearby advanced, state of the art emergency and long term care facilities. It's the best of both worlds to have that small hub and atmosphere and to live in right next to modern conveniences.
A great choice in the community is "A Place Called Home" Residential Care. Run by an experienced ER, ICU, and Hospice care Nurse David Murchison and his family. They specialize in memory loss, Alzheimer's, and dementia. This home is known for its cleanliness, Chef cooking from scratch, elegant decor and sincere, loving, compassionate service. Due to its reputation a second "A Place Called Home" was just opened. Pamper yourself or your parent with the ultimate retirement, in the ultimate location of Clovis, California.
