Healthy behaviours, mobility, and daily activities among older Chinese migrants


Study Description 

This study investigates how older Chinese migrants perceive and navigate their community and connect socially, which are ‘health-related behaviors.’ During the coronavirus pandemic, we understand that daily life has been disrupted for older adults, and we’re interested to know how older Chinese immigrants have adapted while living in a different cultural context here in Toronto. Our study aims to provide new context to experiences of older Chinese populations, mobility barriers or social anxieties stemming from cultural difference, and changes during the pandemic.
