The questionnaire has four items, and each item includes a group of questions about the service provided to them. The researcher interviewed all the members of the White Beds Association, whose health condition allowed this, (75 elderly people: 44 men and 31 women). The data was analyzed and frequencies and percentages were extracted. The researcher used (Chi-Square) to detect any differences of the sample’s responses. The results showed an average satisfaction about the social services provided to the elderly in social institutions while the results showed a high level of satisfaction about the health and entertainment services provided to them. The researcher recommended the need to improve and develop social, health and entertainment services for the elderly in social institutions and to improve the network of social relations between workers and residents within these institutions, which positively reflects the psychological feeling of the elderly.
