There are many retirees in the city of Fort Myers...There is plenty to do, whether it is Seniors helping Seniors, or church-affiliated activities. There are plenty of Assisted Living Facilities, and Memory Care Centers. It is quite friendly although we do have the, Youth Groups as well. There is a mixture of all age groups!

Community engagement as well as care.I currently work as an HHA and the patients I have been with were beyond bitter.I honestly believe it was from loneliness and previous care.Most people see patients or elderly as paychecks.I'm just here because I like helping people.
