Chinese American Elder Abuse, Poverty Rise

World Journal, Posted: Jun 20, 2009

NEW YORK The Indochina Sino-American Community Center, a Chinese-American organization, called for more attention to the needs of elders on Monday, which was World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The World Journal reported on a recent study from the organization that shows that 94 percent of Chinese-American elders in New York City are immigrants. More than 60 percent of the elders immigrated to the United States after their children. Of those Chinese-American elders, 22 percent have incomes below the poverty level, and many dont have access to social security and health care services. The report also found that cases of elders abused by their children have recently been on the rise in the Chinese community.
