neighbors who need to retire [before they otherwise would] and/or become 
disabled in some way, so they won't have to leave our community because of 
either financial or support or health care reasons. We would appreciate 
learning about how other established communities are dealing with this. [end 
  Thanks for raising this issue. There are a lot of people who are in this 
situation. Will this support system include helping people who are physically 
able to hold a paying job and would like to find a job to find one?
