This city is very age friendly. The app wouldn't allow me to press the right button. This , I feel is a tourist town...the proprietors treat people, and the aged very respectfully.

There are many resources through local churches but I didn't consider them in my answers. Elderly lack funds to create a very small business that could bring in $10,000-$15,000 extra dollars a year. The economy would be much better off if there were definite small businesses or resources waiting for them to work with as they retire.
