Construction on Oakmont of Folsom and Oakmont of Carmichael began fall 2013, and are expected to be completed this summer. The two-story communities will help meet the need for more regional senior housing and care options for seniors in Sacramento County, where seniors currently account for 11.9 percent of the overall population of 1.45 million.

Offering a host of resort-style comforts and a continuum of customizable care services, both Oakmont communities “will be premier retirement retreats promoting quality of life and continued wellness,” according to a press release.
