Abstract

The gerontological literature includes relatively few examinations of senior center programming directed to the needs of frail older persons. This paper presents a detailcd review and critique of the studies that have been published on this topic. It also identifies the elements that seem to be common to the development and operation of such programs. A number of interesting approaches have been used in senior centers to serve this population, but the data needed to evaluate their effectiveness and appropriateness are not available. The paper outlines the questions that need to be examined if we are to have a better understanding of the impact of senior centers on frail elders. © 1996, The Haworth Press. All rights reserved.
