Respect is shown to seniors here, even in the language, such as "yes m'am" and "yes sir". Respectfulness is also shown in the workplace. Though I have heard that there is age discrimination in the area. I am not sure if that applies specifically to Conroe.

I think the area that I live in is age friendly because most places have handicap accessibility and people are very friendly and welcoming.
