Great article on older immigrants in today's New York Times:

"Yet experts say that America’s ethnic elderly are among the most isolated
people in America. Seventy percent of recent older immigrants speak little or no
English. Most do not drive. Some studies suggest depression and psychological
problems are widespread, the result of language barriers, a lack of social
connections and values that sometimes conflict with the dominant American
culture, including those of their assimilated children."
