There seems to be not much in the way of working or transportation for the senior, much is put into the younger generations, especially downtown. I would love to get out but, afraid for my safetly and .
There are many resources in my community for the Aged as well as the Developmentally Disabled. I have found out about many of the resources available for my mother who is 84 years old. these resources include transpiration, Housecleaning (free to the elderly), Senior centers in the area for recreational purposes as well as day trips.
It's age friendly because the neighbors are nice and everyone keeps to themselves it's a lot of older people in this neighborhood we conversat when we're out in public
its very age friendly because we have a park that all the elders in the neighborhood walk also a community that helps our elders with their trash and other needs around their homes such as shopping feeding their pets and yard duties around their homes.
There are great programs for those who need a little extra help and a fair amount of parks and restaurants in the area. However, affordable housing options are very limited as well as fresh local food sources. The mobility in the city is Not the best either but is definitely improving.
