Lots of shops and jobs near by. Very beautiful homes and most people around are middle aged adults. Very quiet neighborhood with public transportation right up the street also.

Everyone in my neighborhood communicates with each other, helps people out whether its with support or a helping hand. We have signs put up to alert people that there are deaf kids in the neighborhood and a couple signs for the elderly.

Yes, my community is age friendly. We have a college down the road. We also have a senior rec center close by.
