Norwood has always been age friendly and that is why many of its residents stay! With the many homes to care for them Norwood has the bus service and senior center and bus service. They have a wonderful music variety that happens every Saturday nite in the summer where many elders flock with their chairs and sit all day and nite just listening to the music of their times. Their is much much more.

Just ok. Not enough disability benefits. But good senior center. Local hospital with fair care. But good neighbors. Needs much more affordable housing
