Even as adults age, they retain their individuality; nevertheless, their behavior patterns are likely to change. The authors conducted a series of interviews with active members of the Senior Adult Department of the Jewish Y's and Centers of Greater Philadelphia to determine whether those who were joiners in their youth continued to involve themselves in group activities. The authors found, contrary to another study, that the tendency to join decreased and suggest more robust outreach to senior adults by community centers.
