There is a place down the street, which is providence that people of age live, very nice apartments. People of age usually walk around the community and engage in different things and hobbies, such as the park, walking their dogs, and enjoying coffee at Starbucks.

I care about my friend about how he clothes, clean, education, medication, the bed he slept, cooking.
I live in an apartment complex. We have some people my age; and we get along pretty well.
There are some younger folks in our complex and they are ok too. We are not a senior community. But, I have worked in the senior community for a number of years. I work as an in home caregiver.
