I have lived in Portland for 38 years. Portland is geared more towards individuals around the age of 37. It has never been age friendly. There is no affordable housing for senior citizens. The area growth got out of control. People from California and the East Coast has moved here. I love it here. But I am very lonely. There is no way for older adults to engage in those activities. We all can't afford some of the options to references above.
