Bedroom Community is a general name given to a place suburban area, which doesn't have a major employment center. People in that place are only known to sleep throughout and not working. People always choose bedroom communities, because the place is affordable.

I am a bit concerned as to how far she will be from the hospital-due to her age.....I am now thinking that one probably would not be too close to her actual house.

Now that also gets me to thinking about grocery stores, POLICE protection and a Walgreens or some time of drug store for her meds. Your thoughts?

The suburbs of many large cities could be called "bedroom cities ".Consider Chicago as an example. The cities of Kenosha Wisconsin, Zion Illinois, and even Waukegan Illinois, all are considered close enough for the commute to the 'Windy City ". :)
