Retirement communities have different services and amenities, such as transportation to local stores and attractions or on-site dental and medical facilities that save time and stress so you can live as active as you want. Add to these conveniences 24-hour security, housekeeping services, and prepared meals, and you have a great recipe for carefree, independent living in Bakersfield.

  • On-site parking
