Objectives: To evaluate the demographic characteristics and service needs and usage of members of the Seniors Association of Greater Edmonton (Sage). Methods: Four hundred Sage members were randomly selected from the Sage members’ list and contacted to participate in a telephone survey. One hundred and forty eight people responded. Results: The majority of the respondents were female, between 70 and 90 years of age, with at least 12 years of education. Most of the respondents lived alone and did not work in paid employment. The majority of the respondents had not used the whole range of Sage programs and services. Results suggest relationships between participation in programs and seniors age and gender. Very few respondents had used their membership benefits. Conclusion: Not all current programs and services are needed by the majority of current Sage members. Further studies are recommended to identify needs of current members and profile of non-members.
