I believe this area is age friendly because there are many elderly living in our community here in Florida. I spoke with some of my elderly neighbors and they explained to me that they were happy to live in this area of Florida.

My community allows people of all ages to participate in activities that keep the community healthy and encourage economic stability. It is a place where older persons can easily stay connected with others and remain independent. Its a very age-friendly community that also looks out for those who need support to age successfully.
