The facilities should include anything from indoor and outdoor pools, indoor walking track, rooms available for classes in everything from ceramics to computers, and the building is decorated with examples of residents art on display, from painting to quilts.

The Leisure Center or Fitness Center should rival a Health Club's with classes such as specialized sports as tai chi, water aerobice and step aerobics. Other activities should include classes on subjects from Japanese flower arranging to basket-making.

There are numerous Senior Housing or Retirement Housing web sites to go to through Google or Yahoo search engines. Here is one example of a particularily interesting plan of a Retirement Community in New York found on the AIA web site at: www.aia.org/pia/DFA4/073/main.asp
and ther are others. This one has some plans of the overall complex, but not sure you will get what you are looking for in detail.

Have fun with your Thesis and do some Programming with a local Seniors Retirement Center ( as a prototype) close to where you are located to see firsthand what one is, looks like and how they work.
