Where I live is exactly the boundary of two cities: Hackensack and Maywood. People are generally friendly and composed of busy working people and aging retirees. There are around four home for the aged in the surrounding area. Doctors offices are aplenty with Hackensack University Hospital as the focal point of all health related issues. There are also Senior Centers where this demographic usually congregates. Of course there are social organizations such as Rotary, Lions, Toastmasters Club, Jaycees and a number of sports centers. In shortne is a peaceful but vibrant, people friendly community.

Our community is surrounded with rehab and wellness centers, home for the aged, numerous clinics and diagnostic facilities. Moreover, we are a good walking distance to two different Senior Citizen Centers and of utmost advantage, we are a stone throwaway near Hackensack University Hospital.
