Which Canadians Are Most Likely To Age Successfully?

We all age, but a new study reveals that the aging experience is not the same for all Canadians. As reported by ctvnews.ca, the aging experience for Canadian immigrants is worse than those born in Canada. This indicates that more policies and health interventions are needed to improve the experience and help older people age successfully.

In Canada, immigrants make up 21.9 per cent of the population, and studies show that older immigrants often do better if they have strong social networks, social participation, and access to the internet. However, other studies reveals that recent immigrants sometimes experience psychological distress as they adjust to living in Canada while facing economic hardships, negative work experiences, a lack of social support and discrimination, reports ctvnews.ca.

To learn more about the new study that examines successful aging in Canada, which was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, check out the ctvnews.ca article here and the study abstract here.
