As darkness falls, elderly people gather at a senior citizens' center. The facility serves as a shelter, to help them escape from the hot weather and sleep-depriving tropical nights. As soon as the door is opened, you're greeted by a blast of cool air. The silver citizens watch TV and have meals together here. These centers are used as shelters for elderly people to get a good rest throughout the night. At these facilities, seniors can sleep well and therefore, maintain good health. It's a far cry from their homes where there's no air conditioning, only electric fans.
