This town 7 surrounding area is a FAVORITE "RETIREMENT" area by many retirees. It has a huge Lake that attracts many tourists & retirees. It is a small town, & does not have any "Specialist" Doctors, so folks have to go to the closest towns around for expert Medical Doctors. Many need transportation to & from Dr. visits. There is an extra-large population of elderly folks. There are a lot of folks looking for & needing care & help. ***(I was not able to furnish you with a lot of the info. you requested because it has been 20 years since I worked at the jobs I listed! I realize that does not look good, but so many of my bosses/supervisors & the people & worked for have died. I do not have current phone numbers etc. for you to contact anybody I worked with since it has been so long a time! I am still very capable of doing the jobs, but they were not local, so I have not applied to them.)
