I personally live right near several age friendly communities, assisted living communities, retirement communities, and nursing homes. I regularly see Medical Transportation Vans. We have two Fire Departments within 5 miles, and 3 urgent cares that I know of also within 5-10 minutes. There are several churches and activities close by.
