Observed all ages walking around the area at day and noon time. Examples of couples with a baby, elderly friends, smaller groups of younger kids with adult or teens. Close to middle school, catholic church, restaurant, and shops. You wouldn't see that in a place not welcoming people wouldn't dare.

I believe Danvers is age friendly from my experience in caring for my elderly parents. Stores, restaurants offering discounts, town offices providing financial programs available and also the health care received has been awesome.

Danvers has a very active senior services program. A separate senior center which offers a myriad of activities, including transportation services, multi-day bus trips and an adult day program.
