Senior centers to provide for the needs of seniors and provide many different types of activities. They have something for everyone and are open to including new activities as requested.  There's transportation to enable seniors to get out and participate in community activities. Douglas County has numerous non-profits which need all kinds of skills from volunteers. Many of these organizations offer luncheons to show their appreciation, which also provides an opportunity to meet new people and maintain old friendships.

Lots of parks, wheel chair accessible stores and shops and surprisingly lots of side walk for strolls. When you walk around you run into lots of seasoned individuals and see younger kids helping and holding doors.
