Nestled into California’s Central Valley, Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care is set to serve the senior population with dignity and grace. Appropriately named for a beautiful flower that is indigenous to the Sierra Foothills and Central Valley, Paintbrush is an aesthetic masterpiece. Inspired by the Ahwahnee Lodge in Yosemite National Park, Paintbrush gives its residents the appealing look of a lodge, the warmth and comfort of home, and all the amenities of a care facility. Rich, heavy materials and Craftsman stylistic expression, alongside artwork by renowned artists such as Galen Rowell and Ansel Adams create the perfect environment for senior living. With more than 74,000 square feet, Paintbrush provides 75 assisted living apartments and 25 secured memory care suites.
Assisted Living apartments are available in studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom with shared common areas including a fitness room, movie theater, beauty salon, and library. When it comes to meals, residents have options including restaurant-style dining, full service dining, and private family dining. Services provided for residents include pet therapy, music therapy, art therapy, as well as individual care plans.
For those in the Memory Care suites, memory boxes serve as gentle reminders to help residents locate their rooms. Filled with mementos from the resident’s past, memory boxes have been shown to reduce the incidence of wandering and other behavioral issues. Residents also have access to 24/7 staff who are trained in dealing with the special needs of those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Accessibility is made easy throughout all Paintbrush apartments and suites with amenities such as roll-in showers, grab bars for commodes, and adaptable sinks. Certain units are designed completely accessible to ADA, UFAS, and Building Code standards. Each assisted living apartment is also equipped with a 24-hour emergency call system. The common areas are accessible to all residents and guests.
With local family ownership and stewardship, as well as the involvement of local farmers, artists, and photographers, Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care is truly a communal gift to the senior population of the Central Valley. It is located at 4356 W. Ashlan Avenue in Fresno, with easy access to local hospitals and medical providers.
