Managed by the Age Friendly Foundation
Vancouver seems to be health care ready for seniors which is a plus, but like most places in America, unless you have $750,000+ to purchase a single family house in a neighborhood were people respect each other you are stuck living around people who are disrespectful, play music at DOLBY ATMOS sound decibels, have loud parties until 2am, race down your complexes streets, and simply just have no awareness they live in a community and absolutely no care about respecting others as they are only self interested in "growing what I want-everyone else be damned."
Vancouver is a nice place, but for this element.
