CHARM project investigates health, wellbeing and questions of care in the lives of older Russian-speaking migrants in Finland. Additionally, the subproject is interested in the use of formal and informal care, local and transnational ties and use of digital technologies of this group. The study is conducted as a postal survey using a random sample of Russian origin migrants aged 50 years or older permanently residing in Finland (gross sample of 3000).
- Health, wellbeing and the use of health care services
- Care preferences, practices and needs: formal and informal care, caregiving
- Transnational and translocal caring ties
- Questions of integration and identity: host society, ethnic and transnational integration
- The use of digital technologies and inequalities related to this
Data on the living conditions of older migrants and their use of health and social care services are internationally scarce and little research has been conducted on this topic in Finland. This research aims to contribute to filling this gap by providing generalizable evidence on the issue by investigating older Russian migrants in Finland.
