Louisville is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the 29th-most populous city in the United States. It is one of two cities in Kentucky designated as first-class, the other being the state's second-largest city of Lexington. Louisville is the historical seat and, since 2003, the nominal seat of Jefferson County.

The Office for Aging & Disabled Citizens provides leadership to and participates in community activities, advocating for rights, policies and funding that can enhance the lives and independence of seniors and disabled individuals. The primary ways in which the Office for Aging and Disabled Citizens interacts with the community to maintain age-friendliness are as follows:
  • The office works to ensure efficient and timely access to information and resources by and for aging and disabled citizens.  We do this by providing information on community resources to the community at large.

  • Educate the community on the needs of aging and disabled citizens; serve as a resource for giving information and referrals to individual citizens and provide consultation to community groups on aging and disability issues.

  • Participate in community initiatives to sustain and improve services and funding to aging and disabled citizens.

Louisville is easy to navigate and offers. Many opportunities for multi-age activities, physical and culture also , are available to those who wish to participate. Public transportation is basic but available for all parts of the city. The downtown and suburbs a4e age friendly and accessible
People living in this community range from younger to older ages. Most have children or family living with them. Most appear to have family visit or get togethers, holiday dinners or party's. People always walk door to door with flyers or word of mouth for community engagements such as neighborhood meetings, festivals, politics, etc. Kids go door to door for school or church fundraisers.
I live in a retirement community. Most of the residents are retired. However a small percentage of us are still working but are within 10 to 15 year of retirement. It is very quite and very secure. But we do have grand children that come in summer.but still relatively quite.
It depends on where you live in Louisville. In some neighborhoods, it's easy to get around during non-peak hours, and some neighborhoods it's difficult to get around even when it's not busy because the roads are very curvy and not well maintained. There are lots of activities in places like Middletown and Anchorage for older people.
Good housing, good entertainment like Actors Theater, good sports enthusiasm, good golf courses, good restaraunts, including ethnic.
