Why City Retirement? The Baby Boom generation redefined America, and they continue to do so as they reach retirement, demanding a wide variety of lifestyle options.

Hedda Bolgar, 103 year-old practicing L.A. psychoanalyst says, “Food, alcohol, and drugs are no substitute for a relationship. If you’re lonely, do something about it.
