This paper presents the findings of a qualitative study of members of two groups for senior adults. One of the groups consisted of members from the Latino community and the other was composed of European Americans. Although members of these groups differed, they valued the mutual aid and support received in the weekly groups. Recommendations are that group workers expand and inspire social group work for seniors and be sensitive to ethnic/cultural variables when leading groups.
