I believe Dallas is very age friendly. I'm about 10 miles from four different nursing homes, hospice, and major hospitals.
If you're over 60 in Dallas, employment is almost impossible. Too many young people have moved to Dallas and there's no demand for experience.
Too many people are moving here, especially from California, causing prices-- especially real estate-- to escalate astronomically, as well as traffic to increase. Also causing our great Red State of Texas to turn purple. Please stay away!
Our neighborhood has many older residents who have had their homes for a long time but at the same time it also has younger families with younger children. Many of our neighbors have pets and about half of the residents are retired or on a second career. We have a neighborhood association that meets once a month on various topics relevant to the neighborhood.
The main problem I am having is finding a halfway decent paying job, and I have never had a problem finding work before. Of course I haven't been on the job market in over 15 years, but still I shouldn't be having this much trouble, or when I do get work, they don't want to give me a raise or they hire a younger someone from outside rather thsn promote me, even though I could work every station in the store.
