Cheyenne, Wyoming is an age friendly city for several reasons. There is a strong military community here and many older veterans (and younger) move here. There is a VA hospital here as well. I would say that based on regular church attendance, the church community is perhaps 35% older citizens. Older workers are seen in stores such as Home Depot, Lowe's, and restaurants.

I feel Cheyenne is age friendly, because I've Encountered with those who are willing to help you with a flat tire get out of the snow if you're stuck or find your animal

I would say that Cheyenne is very age friendly. It is not difficult to find work - either part time or full time. Cost of living is relatively low. Crime is low. There is no State income tax. Currently no sales tax on food. Very bike friendly. It is not easily walkable to do errands. There is limited public transportation. Lots of things to see and do. Ample volunteer opportunities.
