It's age friendly because working with old age makes you feel a type of inner happiness. Helping and taking care of them makes me feel happy

My city prides itself on taking care of its elderly. We have taken great measures in providing a safe environment for our Senior community including making sure all employees were protected from Covid-19. Working both spectrums of young and old, I see people in my community step up to meet the needs of those we live around.
