Abstract: This report documents needs of refugee older adults in the Greensboro metropolitan area of North Carolina, as exemplified by two communities: Nepali-speaking Bhutanese and Congolese. We describe the demographics of refugee populations in North Carolina and Greensboro. We draw attention to the fact that although refugee streams are in general younger in age, older refugees do exist in appreciable numbers, and their specific needs must be recognized and provided for. This is the first such report for the state of North Carolina.
