Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the study is to explore and identify the barriers that the older adult population encounters while attempting to access quality health care. The data in this study was collected through a self administered questionnaire measuring health care experience, access and quality that participants have experienced. Twenty older adults ages 65 and older participated in the study.

The most considerable findings were that there are not significant differences between gender and their experiences with their health care provider. The findings also suggest that there is not a strong relationship between ethnicity and health care experience. Furthermore limitations of the study and implications of social research have also been addressed.
