Accounting for the Diverse Experiences of Older Immigrants in Today’s America

Read on for an American perspective on aging issues for older immigrants which are likely similar to the Canadian context.

"Today, older foreign-born immigrants make up more than 13% of the total older adult population and are expected to increase to 22 million by 2060. Within this population, two out of three older immigrants have lived in the U.S. for more than 30 years. Despite the length of time, not all older immigrants have experienced a linear trajectory in their adjustment and adaptation to life in the U.S. When one considers racial, ethnic and class background, as well as time of arrival, different life-course trajectories have affected older immigrants' access and mobility."
