Although, I have 25 years of experience and love what I do. I have a hard time finding a job. I believe it is my age. When I was younger, I could walk out of one place and have another job before I get home.
This varies in location of the city in which I prefer I live in Detroit it really depends on the area in regards to friendliness of the community I live in a very friendly part of Detroit, , but there is also the variable of location i would suggest downtown. Detroit cause there are several areas to explore and people are more diverse as well as polite.
Great neighborhood. Very friendly to all ages. I feel this due to the fact eveyone knows and help each other. All kids play together respectful of the elders also.
People have been living in this community for years possibly even decades. The community is made up of older adults and is welcome to youth and older. There may be a question as to if people's individual homes are tailored to those with a handicap or disability. The neighborhood is located near several and one major bus stops which provide access to Detroit's Department of Transportation buses which cater to those with handicap or disability and to teenagers who may take the bus to school. Younger ages should be accompanied by an adult or mature teenager. This community is supportive of all ages.
Detroit has a large aging population. There has been a steady migration of residents moving to the suburbs for over 30 years. These residents are mainly people under the age of 50
