Some of the top communities in Southwest Florida oftentimes come with top amenities. For some, that includes the addition of a lifestyle director. Also sometimes referred to as an activities director, a lifestyle director plays a key role, especially in those communities designed for active adults. A lifestyle director not only helps plan out weekly and monthly classes, clubs, activities, and events, but also oftentimes works closely with residents to ensure the community is meeting their physical, mental, and social lifestyle needs.
