Diversity and Aging Among Immigrant Seniors in Canada

Summary: Diversity and Aging Among
Immigrant Seniors in Canada
Changing Faces and Greying Temples
Edited by Douglas Durst and Michael MacLean
This book is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, the chapters
explore general and universal issues such as national trends and
demographics, theoretical orientations, issues of culture and legal
dimensions, poverty and income, and end-of-life care. In Part 2, the
chapters examine issues pertaining to specific ethnic groups. For
example, there are chapters on the social well-being of Chinese
immigrants, determinants of mental health for Iranian seniors, family
dynamics for aging Haitian elders, older Korean immigrants, elderly
Ukrainian immigrant women, Portuguese seniors, South Asian immigrant seniors, African immigrant
experience, and emerging issues for Punjabi families.
Diversity and Aging Among Immigrant Seniors in Canada offers both breadth and depth to the topic of
aging among immigrants, and is a must read for social work and health care professionals, students in
health and social services, policy and program planners and families of aging immigrants. It is written in
a language that crosses disciplines, shedding professional jargon, making it an informative and engaging
read for professionals, researchers, and the general public.
