Age and migration

The number of elderly migrants among the elderly population of the Federal Republic of Germany is growing every year, gradually resulting in multiculturalisation of the elderly. Since this development is of a permanent nature, there are new requirements for the system of caring for the elderly.

The Office for Multicultural Affairs of the city of Frankfurt am Main (AmkA), Amt für multikulturelle Angelegenheiten (AmkA), has been dealing with the topic of age and migration since the beginning of the 90s. The integration of elderly migrants, along with their social, health and psychosocial care in old age, is an important factor. The question of intercultural inpatient and outpatient care, the housing situation and the possibility of meeting other fellow countrymen are also concerns that the municipal administration takes seriously and supports through targeted measures.

Two projects in this field that are being implemented with cooperation partners:

  • Project for intercultural support in pension matters
  • Multilingual information events on pensions
