I'm not sure if the neighborhood is @age-friendly" because I'm a new resident.
Community engagement due to general living and affordable rent.
Care, working, transportation and living
So much traffic, a little more crime than usual, up and coming trendy area for younger professionals, a lot of noise from new construction
Chamblee is a growing city undergoing much change. It has one dedicated County Senior center and is home to Mercy Care, a low cost health clinic, and Senior Connections, a Meals on Wheels delivery and prep center for which I volunteer. There are a number of senior residents living in the subdivisions in town, and a community group of seniors that the City runs. However there is not much work or many social amenities directed specifically to seniors. Chamblee is becoming more walkable and is drawing a broader range of eateries and entertainment options.
