Retirees and those of mature ages have numerous organizations available to them in the community, for everything from social connection to fitness and nutrition, to arranging care for themselves and their respective spouses.

I have spoken with some people and the general consensus is that there isn't much to do here unless you want to play bingo. Recent events have contributed to that, but even before the community didn't have many options for older people to do. Public Transportation has also shown to be a problem, so if you can't drive then you are metaphorically stuck inside your house.
