Le vieillissement des personnes immigrées en Maine-et-Loire

Abstract :

This article analyzes the aging conditions of elderly immigrants in the Maine-et-Loire department, in western France, based on a corpus of interviews conducted with 35 social and gerontological actors throughout the department. This study seeks to understand what is at stake and the problems that immigrants can encounter as they age in an area where their demographic presence is reduced. In conclusion, three main issues result from this analysis : the continuance of trans-migratory practices in the face of deteriorating health; a reduction in the use of gerontological services combined with the prominence of informal aid; and the territorial disparities that elderly immigrants may encounter (range of services and actions available to them; level of training and knowledge of professionals).
