I believe this community encompasses a community with different age groups who have come together for common purpose.This community include people with different needs,self actualization, self esteem,need for love,safety and security needs and lastly physiological needs.Cultural diversity also plays an important role in a community.


Rockville, MD is a wonderful place to raise a family but much more difficult for us as we grow older. Cars are essential since vital services are distributed widely across the city and county. Public transit is fair, at best, and was largely shut down when most needed during the pandemic. And while the community is very accepting, there are no services whatsoever (medical or otherwise) for LGBT+ elders. None. Zero. Nor for those living and aging with HIV. Accessing those requires a long commute to DC or Baltimore, either of which takes 90+ minutes one way by public transit if even possible.


Transportation reliable in terms of flexibility , hours . Safety

There is a wide diversity of ages with excellent programs for all. The town of Rockville is recognized annually as one of the best towns in the country.


I believe because most of our neighbors are of different cultures it's not too friendly. Transportation is easy. Supermarket are close by it's a beautiful Community.
