Refugees and Immigrants of all ages are arriving in Buffalo. It can be hard to pick up a new language when you're much older, let alone embrace new financial systems. From shopping, to paying bills and working with banks, older adults in these communities may rely too heavily on the younger members of their family for help after spending years, someties decades, away from home while en route to the US.
From Gowanda, to Kenmore, and now to Buffalo's West Side, our series on older adults with Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access and Health Foundation for Western and Central New York continues to showcase the work Jericho Road Community Health Center is doing to help older adults gain more independence.
