Today’s older adults are very different from previous generations; in general, they are healthier, more proactive, and understanding of their needs as a growing population. Thus, they are willing to be active contributors in a dialogue that aids society in appreciating their needs. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how a collaborative evaluation was used to identify the efficacy of a recreation facility’s program on the well-being of older adult members. The program’s efficacy was surmised through reflections and suggestions of the older adult members and other relevant stakeholders. Because population aging is a global phenomenon, this paper has implications for international contexts that may be seeking methods on how to engage older adults in decision-making processes. The evaluation and its findings are highlighted in this paper. The discussion of information is supported by the theory and work behind the model for collaborative evaluations.
