Separated from Eugene to the west, mainly by Interstate 5, Springfield is the second-most populous city in the metropolitan area after Eugene. Senior & Disability Services serves as both the Area Agency on Aging (AAA), and the Medicaid long-term care agency for Lane County.

No One Hires Seniors, been to alot of interviews goes well but never get a second call, all I can think is they dont want an older person

I know from working in the retirement services industry that Springfield has high-level care facilities for older populations, whether that's with independent, long-term, or hospice care. Springfield has a wonderful public transportation bus system and highly ranked hospital, Sacred Heart, located in it. The neighborhoods are generally safe, crime-free, and family friendly. The University of Oregon and Lane Community College are a short drive outside of the city for further educational pursuits.
