Toledo () is a city in and the county seat of Lucas County, Ohio, United States. Toledo is in northwest Ohio, at the western end of Lake Erie bordering the state of Michigan. The city was founded by United States citizens in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River, and originally incorporated as part of Monroe County, Michigan Territory. It was re-founded in 1837, after conclusion of the Toledo War, when it was incorporated in Ohio. After the 1845 completion of the Miami and Erie Canal, Toledo grew quickly; it also benefited from its position on the railway line between New York City and Chicago. The first of many glass manufacturers arrived in the 1880s, eventually earning Toledo its nickname: "The Glass City". It has since become a city with an art community, auto assembly businesses, education, healthcare, and local sports teams. The population of Toledo as of the 2010 Census was 287,208, making it the 71st-largest city in the United States. It is the fourth-most-populous city in the U.S. state of Ohio, after Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. The Toledo metropolitan area had a 2010 population of 651,429, and was the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the state of Ohio, behind Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, and Akron.

I don't have a lot of experience in commenting on how this town is age friendly or unfriendly. I know my mom gets meals delivered to her every week and there's Transportation available for her if she would need it. There's also someone available at one of these senior centers to go to the grocery store for her for a limited number of items.

My mom lives in the area & all her elderly friends have the beginning stages of dementia. I am often visiting my mom who also has dementia. She was living at home & I was taking care of her. She is now in Florida, with another sister, who is looking for a living facility for her. I also just got laid off from Lott Industry. I took care of 4 DD people daily. I hope you consider me.
