Information on Fresno Senior Resources

Agewell Fresno is a locally operated online senior resource center and print magazine. We connect seniors to services. We provide information on aging and senior issues in California’s Central Valley. We believe information should be readily available, easy to access, and easy to understand. We also provide information on local events, workshops, conferences, activities, and volunteer opportunities which support older adults and their families.

Local information for seniors on the coronavirus, available services, grocery delivery service, online groups, and other helpful information.

In order to strengthen and support services for older adults, Agewell Fresno is involved in local advocacy. Read our letter opposing Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed cuts to senior serving programs.
