There is a mixture of all ages however not as friendly for older people I would say. There are alot of schools and parks around for kids.

I really understand the question

There is plenty of places for the elderly, which I am one of to be put but I have only visited one and I wouldn't put my worst enemy there. There is very little work for people my age here. I would think that I would be a good client to help with another elderly person who is unable to care for themselves. I am still able to do so but am having a terrible time finding a job. I was a paid Family Attendant for 7 years but I took care of my husband for over 10 years as his caregiver, before he passed in Sept.
