Its somewhat frindly.

Chehalis is somewhat economically depressed. The county, of which Chehalis is the seat, has 17.1% unemployment. Demographics do seem to include a high % of older people, as most younger people seek employment elsewhere. There are plenty of activities at churches, granges and a few senior centers, but they all require transportation. There is a city transit system, but no inexpensive rural transportation. There are about a dozen small residential care facilities in Chehalis and Centralia, but they are all rather disorganized, gloomy, and cramped. The nearest professional senior care service is 40 miles in Olympia.
