I feel that this town is age friendly because we have a military base, several nursing homes, and hospitals.
What makes this place age friendly is if someone is sick or in need of anything my age friendly Community is right there.
Education, military town, community
Fayetteville has many places in the town that provides care, support and transportation needs for the elderly along with community engagement so they are able to get out and have some fun! There is a bus available for those not able to drive and it picks them up and takes them to their appointment.
Lots of retired people live in my neighborhood and in Fayetteville. There are lots of activities for them to do, and a very active YMCA for them to socialize and exercise
