Is Florida the only area in the nation that has it's infrastructure created with Seniors over 55 in mind?
Are there any cities with an infrastructure created for geezers (me, being one of them)?
I've read the 3 best cities for the over 55 crowd insofar as having care (I assume this means medical, food service to homes, pick up and delivery services, etc.) are: San Francisco, Portland and Seattle (in that order, too).
Any ideas on this, folks?

I live in Portland, the three cities you mentioned would have the services you mentioned but they are very much cities that cater to the younger crowd. There is a much higher percentage of younger residents in Portland as well as the other 2 mentioned, than there would be older people. They are expensive cities and unless someone is from here, or a more affluent retiree, I don't see the draw here for a senior. Yes Florida does seem to have more in place for retirees than many other states, I think North Carolina as well as the Phoenix area is also catering more to the retiree now with so many moving there.
