I have lived in Portland for 38 years. Portland is geared more towards individuals around the age of 37. It has never been age friendly. There is no affordable housing for senior citizens. The area growth got out of control. People from California and the East Coast has moved here. I love it here. But I am very lonely. There is no way for older adults to engage in those activities. We all can't afford some of the options to references above.
I care about my friend about how he clothes, clean, education, medication, the bed he slept, cooking.
I live in an apartment complex. We have some people my age; and we get along pretty well. There are some younger folks in our complex and they are ok too. We are not a senior community. But, I have worked in the senior community for a number of years. I work as an in home caregiver.
Is the community. Oregon, especially Portland is known for being very friendly as a sanctuary State.
The community engagement everyone always helped the elderly and opened up the doors, and was courteous. It made me feel at home just hang out everybody was a friendly to different age groups
