New social opportunities. Seniors are far more prone to depression and physical health problems if they don’t interact with other people of any age socially on a regular basis. Community development and event planners always take this fact into account. Communities often feature public areas and programs that promote social interaction. For example, most communities offer outside public tables. Some sites have grilling areas. A high-end community might have a clubhouse that features a theater, game room, library, outdoor courts, zones designated for group games, tennis courts and even sometimes golf areas. Community programs usually include arts and crafts projects, movie nights and social theme-based gatherings. Many event planners provide residents with opportunities to go on local and out-of-town group shopping and day trip excursions and group bus or cruise vacations.
