The Bronx, a New York City borough, is the third most densely populated county in the United States, with a population of 1,418,207, 13.3% of whom are aged 65 and over. However, the Bronx has plenty of open spaces for seniors to enjoy, such as Pelham Bay Park, New York City’s largest park. It is more than three times the size of Central Park, and seniors can stroll through the park’s many hiking trails or relax on the shores of Orchard Beach. Seniors can also watch a game at Yankee Stadium or observe more than 6,000 species at the Bronx Zoo

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care
