There is an Older Persons Commission (OPC) in the city of Rochester (which surrounds Rochester Hills) and this organization is built around providing transportation, food and activities for the elderly and retired. It is an awesome and energizing place to be and consists of a building which houses any kind and level of activity that could possibly be of interest. In addition, I currently volunteer with many women of my age group at Rochester Neighborhood House, in the role of Food Intake. Our organization provides food, clothing and many other services to the low--to-no income members of our community.
I live in a 55 and over community. We have an awesome center called the Older Person Commission. It has exercise, pool, activities, lunch, ect.
