I believe the general population here is pretty age friendly. It's all about the people. My elderly mother lives in Marysville and is engaged in various activities for seniors. She doesn't drive much any more and has friendly volunteers help her with errands and chores around the house that she cannot do. Her health care is excellent (much better than mine). I'm grateful she's in such good hands in her community.
