Chapleski, Elizabeth E.
Gerontologist, v29 n4 p539-45 Aug 1989
Surveyed elderly persons (N=l,224) aged 60+ to determine social network ties and awareness of available services. Found following factors predictive of service awareness: having nonkin advisors; club membership; other community agency contacts; and availability of transportation, education, and moderate-sized kin networks. Found following inhibited service awareness: lack of available kin; and being old, poor, female, or Black. (Author/CM)
