Senior Centres: Who Participates?
Strain, Laurel A.
Canadian Journal on Aging, v20 n4 p471-91 Win 2001
A study of adults aged 65 and older who were interviewed in 1991-92 (n=1,399) and in 1995 (n=956) showed that 1 in 5 attended senior centers. Social factors such as living arrangements were the primary influence on participation. Those living alone or desiring more family contact were more likely to participate. (Contains 34 references.)
