Understanding immigrant seniors’ needs and priorities for health care
Being foreign-born has been shown to impact both the health status of residents and their experience in accessing and utilizing health care services. This report, authored by Vivien Runnels, draws from an extensive engagement of immigrant seniors and their caregivers, as well as health care service providers in the Champlain Local Health Integration (LHIN) region of Ontario, to define immigrant seniors’ health care needs and the challenges and constraints they encounter when seeking health services. The research was conducted collaboratively by OLIP and the South East Ottawa Community Health Centre and funded by the Champlain LHIN. Read this report.
