This study assessed satisfaction among current senior center users in the Northwestern Ohio area and measured the impact that centers have on the lives of participants. Specifically, it assessed satisfaction with four services (congregate meals, recreation, transportation, and supportive services). This study also attempted to capture some of the ways in which the centers impact their users (e.g., more social contact, better physical health, less concern, and worry).
