The concept of transnationalism offers a renovated window into the study of migrant ageing. This paper employs transnationalism as a theoretical framework to explore two outcome domains of social wellbeing i.e. health and social connectedness, among older Chinese migrants. The findings reveal that older Chinese migrants' transnational health practices and social connectedness bring original and host societies into their cultural identity constructions that occur within a globalised and increasingly deterritorialised world.
