Managed by the Age Friendly Foundation
Scottsdale has much to offer for all ages. The only hesitation giving each catagory 5 stars is general livibility. It's a wonderful city to live in but much more expensive than the surrounding cities; plus, you have three months of extreme heat.
The care is excellent but like many cities there aren't enough providers for the population. Wait times for appointments can be frustrating and not all providers are willing to take new patients.
There is citywide metro bus service along with a free Scottsdale trolly, uber/lyft, medical transportation all make getting around convenient.
