I love my city Indianapolis, IN. I grew up here, graduated High School from here. I have so many friends and family living here. This is a Midwestern city and the people are friendly, engaging, sports friendly.
My community have middle age from 50 to 88 yrs old in my community. We take care of each other by being very wise in what going on in our neighbor hood
Indianapolis has several facilities for seniors to go for socializing and a lot of them provide transportation. I feel like the city could use more senior housing.
we have know help from our city government hear on the west side they do nothing for us but this west side is a fine place to live most people are very nice and good people our local government is doing a fine job the city puts us last when ever we have a need from them
The cost of living is wonderful. Healthcare has steadily improved. It is within a whole day drive of half of our nation's population. the change of seasons is nice but not as dramatic as other places.
