Old People in America
In the ol。d days,American families were bigger。. People had m。ore children,and grandparents and gr。eat-grandparents li。ved with their。 families. But now, families are smaller, and many old people
live alone. At the same time, A。mericans are living longer a。nd longer. The n。umber of old people is always growing.
Some old people like to stay in their old。 homes. They do not want to move from their old homes. They do not want t。o move f。rom their hometown. They are near their。 .friends and family. But some。 do not have a lot of friends. They want to meet ne。w people. They want to live in a quiet place with other
people of their age.
A large numbe。r of old people are moving to the South. It is warm there. Yo。u do not have to walk through the snow in w。inter,or pay a lot o。f money for heating.
A large number of old people are movin。g to the South only for old people. One of these is Sun City, near。 Phoenix, Arizona. All the families。 in Sun City。 must have one person over the age of 50 ,and children under 18 years old can't live there.
