Deland Is a thriving community of sharing. Elderly are well cared for and availability of senior living is abundant. The Spiritual community is well involved as is the City and County Government. There is an active mid-town for enjoyment and ample public transportation if needed. Deland is a caring and giving community and will remain that way. Stetson College Campus is centralized and also commits to elder care.
