The 8 Domains of Livability. Age Friendly Seattle focuses on eight domains of livability that cities can address to better serve the needs of older people.
Very walk friendly! Lots of parks for outside recreation.
Community engagement I'm the older brother too two younger brothers and I spent a lot of time watching them taking them out making sure the engaging with people in the community in a respectful manner and I feel like care really places a big part into that I feel like it's always been in me to look after the younger community n make sure they are doing the right thing
I would love to gain experience in working with elderly patients. I have assisted my father's care and loved it and would like to provide assistance and care to other elderly patients.
Where I live there is a lot of public transportation, there is a lot of community support and care, a lot of jobs in the area and opportunities for further education.
The community is very engaging and has many programs
I think the community I live in is well maintained and has nice respectful people here
Honestly, the community is more of a hard knocks living situation where a lot of families are just trying to make ends meet which makes the inner family relationships toxic but also stronger in a way, as well as the neighborhoods amongst Dorchester not being 100 percent safe, there is a lot of criminal activity in Dorchester and it's just not the best place to stay if your trying to stay completely out of the way and not be bothered by stuff your not even involved in. The type of stuff that either comes after you or just slows you down on a daily basis or just disrupts energy constantly.
Easy access to buses. 15 minute walk to MBTA red line. Supermarkets, Church, restaurants, public library.
Great for senior citizens who are looking to retire early
