Providing High-Quality Service to Elderly Soviet Emigres: The Top Ten Cross-Cultural Challenges

By Linda F. Solomon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1996

In order to provide high-quality care to emigre clients from the former Soviet Union, professionals must sensitize themselves to their clients' belief systems. They must examine their own reactions and feelings when their clients act in ways that were adaptive in the former Soviet Union but are not helpful in this country. Finally, they must provide ongoing education in American cultural norms and expectations so that their clients can lead fulfilling, active lives in their new homes.
