Two Conceptual Models of the Senior Center
Taietz, Philip
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 2, 219-222, Mar 76
Two models of the senior center are examined: (1) the social agency model, which views senior centers as programs especially for the poor and the disengaged and (2) the voluntary organization model, which sees centers as for active elderly who have strong attachments to the community. Findings support the voluntary organization model. Paper presented at 10th International Congress of Gerontology, Jerusalem, 1975. (Author)
