Abstract
The author notes that Quebec’s English-speaking seniors living outside of Montreal have variable access to Health and Social Services (HSS). Her research describes factors modulating access to HSS for English seniors outside of Montreal. The author ran a qualitative, single case embedded study. She collected data from interviews, a socio-demographic questionnaire and field notes. Data were analyzed thematically and by descriptive statistics. The author met with ten seniors, which allowed the identification of eleven factors (six facilitators and eight barriers) influencing access to HSS. She determined that the most significant are language concordance (facilitator) and lack of language concordance (barrier), high concentration of the English-speaking community (facilitator) and low concentration of the English-speaking community (barrier) and not English elder-friendly HSS (barrier). Effects of those factors vary from increased social opportunities to invalid consent. Recommendations are presented by the author to improve elderly English speakers' access to HSS, and her results suggest changes in HSS organizations that could benefit the entire population.
